    Tesla won't be offering any support for the 1,000+ 220V 13A BS1363 sockets in Hong Kong.

    Does anyone know of a readily available BS1363 to IEC62196 220V 13A portable EVSE?

    Damn, that is pretty. Nice design. I don't see BS1363 listed, but the supply side should be simply cut the cable and connect the 3 pins to a plug.

    Wow, part #35078 seems exactly what we want (but 10A limit).

    As per the brochure Mennekes only limits the UK version (BS1363) to 10A. All other versions are 13A or more.
    Maybe Mennekes testing came to the same conclusion like Tesla, that BS1363 can't take continuous drawing of 13A without getting damaged, even all wiring is correct.

    even 80% of 10A is good (around 11km/hour of charging) if it can be used with one of the 1000 13A sockets.
