So there's no such thing as a charging cable that would only pull 24 amps (and so be ok w/ 30amp circuit) ?
Clipper Creek makes a 30 amp 240v connectable EVSE Model LCS-30 that connects to a 30 amp Supply and pulls max 24 amps. It will provide a decent rate L2 charge at about 5.8 kw.
There is no such thing as a 40 amp only receptacle. For 40 amp 240v the receptacle used is a 14-50R the same for 50 amp 240v.
Oh I see, so the '50' (in 14-50R) means it can handle 50amps but not that it's illegal to hook it to a small circuit (or at least to a 40amp).
Yes. Most electric ranges require 40 amp 240v supply and come with a cord with a 14-50P plug that plugs into a 14-50R receptacle protected by a 40 amp breaker. Here’s an example of a 40 amp rated range power cord with that plugs into a 14-50R receptacle. https://www.homedepot.com/p/EZ-FLO-6-ft ... /301074807
