FYI. There are 2 types of charging - AC and DC. All domestic charging will be AC and with a 3 phase supply the maximum is about 11kWh.
kW, not kWh.

Also, with the 25A 3P service I have at home, that's 17kW available, not 11.

I don't know much about the socket, it's red with lots of holes and I think it fits the Tesla cable. We have a variety in the garage though - a number of Teslas, Volvos, BMW & Mini, Audi and a few weeks ago, someone got a Merc SUV plug-in and told me that they just had to swap out the socket and install this charging box as the "power is already there".
Probably CEE16.
You need an adapter to charge a BEV or PHEV.

But other than that, it's a good start.


Germany recently changed legislation that allows anyone to have a charging outlet for their car (rented or owned garage) - provided they pay for the whole thing.

But there is no EV that can charge at this rate on AC...

That's a different problem.
