    Well done. Mobile means you can take the box anywhere? How do you get high amperage? Are you just charging at 13A?

    I am now charging at 32A, as long as there is an industrial power plug available, I can take it and charge anywhere.

    I have looked into these cases myself (a good friend of mine is an electrician and I also have a friend who does property management), its quite a complicated process to deal with the management office and CLP since you have to split a line from the public fuse box. If u want, I can help you arrange a site investigation and see is there any cheaper option :)

    By the way, they only allow you to install a 13A socket? not 32A?

    Thanks first! But I think it is impossible to deal with the management to use any alternative that not following their instruction, provided that no new instructions from their senior boss, so just forget it:) thanks again!

    yes, only 13A is approved

    just out of interest, what kind of voltage are you getting when you charge?

    the cable seems very thick and i'm sure if you're building this yourself, you know what you're doing. i just wonder if the length affects it much.
