I'm loving the car now it's arrived but now it's here it's time to choose a wall box and I have two questions:

1 - what is the maximum charging power for the 4xe, is it worth getting a 3 phase 22kw box or will recharging be limited by the car?

2 - other than different power ratings and single or three phase, is there much difference between the different manufacturers of wall boxes, or is it just a matter of choosing the best deal?

Thank you in advance

Not too familiar with power outside of the United States, but the difference in most of the EVSEs is the features, internet/Bluetooth connections or just a stand alone box only. The Jeep max charge rate is 32 amps, which is roughly 7.7 kws I think.
Hope that helps a little.

Thanks, that's helpful...so no point looking at the 22kw three phase boxes then...shame...

I'm not an electrician and I'm not familiar with overseas power set ups but I don't believe you need 3 phase, here in the United States standard AC power is 120 volts, 15 to 20 amp breaker usually. My level 2 charger is 240 volts, on a 40 amp 2 pole breaker breaker supplying 240 volts at 32 amps. I think most of the rest of the world has 240 volt power standard....so in my best guess you would just need a 40 amp breaker and proper size wire to supply the 32 amps.
