The sparky might be able to get the 20 A outlet from his normal supplier(s) cheaper than you can buy and ship it, even with the sparky's mark up.marty11 wrote: I buy a 20 amp outlet, get the sparky to fit it in the Car Park, then to the Sub-Board, then plug in g4qber's Clipper Creek that draws up to 16 amp into that
I assume you want to put a 20 A plug onto the Clipper Creek unit, so that it can be removed from the 20 A socket if say our MX-5 rolled up. I think it would be fine to plug the Clipper Creek into that socket, as long as you didn't plug it in and out very frequently.
Yes, if the MX-5 were near, we could use that 20 A outlet. Any other EV that used ordinary 10/15/20 A plugs directly could also use it, but they are somewhat rare. Of course, EVs with their own "opportunity" EVSEs could also use it.Also, if the 20 amp can handle backwards compatible , I can then get say a visiting EV , to plug in with their evse, whether it is 6 amp, 10 amp, 15 amp etc ... right up to 20 amp?
I assume the Clipper Creek unit is J1772, so most Australian EVs would be able to use that and charge more quickly. It's not clear to me if these are intended to stay together (the Clipper Creek unit and the 20 A socket). With the two, you'd cover a wide range of EVs.
