======EV Home Charging in NZ======

Generally cars need a type 2 socket and something to control the charging which talks to the car. This allows power levels of up to 22 kW in home environment.

**EVNex Charge Station**
This is the type of charging station I have, in single phase, 7.4 kW. The Nissan Leaf will only charge at around 4kW anyway, but other more modern cars can max it out. They do a 3 phase version, which will pull 22kW.

It connects to the mobile phone network and gives you stats/connection info on a phone app. Mine has a type 2 socket, and a type 2 to type 1 one cable (the leaf needs a type 1).

**Pic of the circuit installed at my home**
The Vector electrician installed a 40A RCCD (MOD-6-1-40) and an F202B RCD (Type B). He also wired in a Check meter for me that I already had.
