    Since I haven't seen something like that on the int. forum... here's a link to a guy in Austria who right now developed a prototype for 3 phase charging of the Roadster (less than 20 kg and no big transformer....)

    EV-Lade Technologie – EVAB

    if those guys can offer a reasonable price (there's the talk of approx. € 2.000,-- if not only a few devices will be built) it seems of interest.. not only cause of faster charging but also at home for better load balance on the 3 phases....

    I will post the link of this thread to this guy, so he will be aware of it ;)

    VERY interesting - 42Amp charge is better than 32Amps

    Finally somebody has done this! At 2,000 EUR they will sell a lot of these to Roadster owners. And to add to Mark's comment, it's not only better than 32A, you can get 42A from the 16A charging stations. They need to shape the control box to fit inside the rectangle in the bottom of the Roadster boot.
