EVSEs meant to be installed on the wall and from reputable companies like Clipper Creek can run at 40 Amp safely and for a long time.
Don't be penny wise and fire foolish.
But if the car only draws X Amps, wouldn't a portable charger that is rated for a higher Amperage actually be a safer option?
I have a power supple unit in my computer that's good to a kilowatt, but my computer doesn't take that much current so I never hit full load. The PSU is never being stressed.
