I have a Chargemaster Homecharge unit at our house from the previous owner but no circular key to open it.
I have tried contacting Chargemaster to get a replacement but am struggling. Equally not have had the key, I don't have the reference no to order a new one.
Does anyone have any advice pls?

I'm sure you could pay for a locksmith to come and turn it on for you, as long as you're happy to leave it on (I always have, you could turn it off at the mains supply if you really wanted to if away on holiday etc.). However, if it was me I'd open the charging unit up and just bypass the switch by joining the switch wires together, or purchase a replacement key switch from RS and solder it in if I wanted to keep the functionality. The switch just operates a low-voltage signal wire in effect, telling the control board to operate or not, so relatively easy to do.
