Yeah Pain in the backside, When you apply to have a 7kw EV charger fitted they ask you how many live there & what electrical appliances you have in the house, Washing machine, shower,dishwasher,electric heaters, electric cooker, fridge freezer etc then they add the power usage up, Our ancient supply is only rated at 60A & they require you to have a minimum 80-100 Amp. So they said they wont touch our old 97 year old electrical system until we get this work done by the DNO, It's not costing me nowt.

Jobs done, New feed spliced into the main supply & the electric is back on with a 100A fitted Blooming lawn is a total mess though, Can't be helped in this wet weather I suppose.

I'm going to make a "Granny charger" board with this Patinaed MG A4 sized metal sign I got off ebay for the garage until I get things sorted out, It will keep the charger off the floor & out of harms way. The DNO have finished now & I've now got a 100A fuse supply in place of the 60A fuse supply.

I'm going to be making a "granny charger" board for the garage wall as soon as a circular saw arrives that I won on ebay.


I'm just laying out the 32a rated commando socket as well because that will eventually be used to plug in a variable power Zencar portable charger with different power settings ranging from 10a,16a,20a,24,32a when I get the armoured steel 6mm2 core cable laid.

Works perfectly & connects up to the car straight away Looks to be made of good quality materials & weighs in at 3.5kgs.


I shot a short vid of the MG charging flap pulsating when it's charging, Never seen that before
