I should have elaborated more, As edwardmk said a 10mm cable would definitely future proof your installation and if you're charging to 100% on a daily basis then yes 10mm cable would be better. But for my own personal use the 6mm2 SWA was adequate enough.


We don't do high mileage or use the car everyday, I've only used the 32A/7kw option on this adjustable charger once to make sure it was working OK. I'm only charging the car twice a month and I just use the 16A option which is plenty fast enough for our use. I was initially going to go with a 16A charger but this 10A,16A,20A,24A,32A adjustable charger worked out cheaper to buy.

As these MG/Roewe BEV's in Europe & UK cannot use the remote i-smart app due to data protection laws there are some apps available that give you more details/functions as to what is going on other than the dashboard readouts.
I bought a OBD diagnostic scanner & the Nissan Leaf Spy app years ago when I was looking into getting a Leaf but it never came about.










There are a couple of apps on Google play store so I downloaded the Car scanner pro & it paired up straight away with bluetooth to the scanner tool I wasn't expecting it to as it's over 5 years old but hey oh it works.
It's on charge at the minute but I'll have a better look at the app & customise it later.


This is just a one screen example.

This MG ZS ev has been averaging 4.2-4.3 miles/Km which I'm really happy with for this crossover vehicle. I've been sorting out the bluetooth scanner on my mobile phone for real time accurate readings of the battery SOC (state of charge) among dozens of other sensor reading.When the dashboard reads 100% charged it's actually 96.8% which is the upper buffer limit.



If you're planning on running the battery down to the wire this scanner tool will give you a lot more accuracy as to the charge left in the battery.









I believe when it goes in for service the software update will reduce the 455.2 V down to 450V to make a bigger buffer so as to let the braking regen put power back into the battery straightaway instead of waiting until the battery is depleted a little from a 100% charge.


I'm still only charging the battery to 75-80% which is the sweet spot if you're not using the car everyday, Not good letting a 100% charged ev sit for days.
