Well I tried running my home chademo on a 30 amp circuit, just to see what would happen.
It ran for over an hour on 2 different 30 amp circuits using square D QO breakers and it didn't trip.
My home chademo typically draws 34 to 35 amps.
Normally I plug it into my 100 amp welder circuit on 4 gauge cable.
did you feel the breakers after that hour? My guess
is they were quite toasty(feel the breaker itself near the toggle with the back of your finger). I've occasionally ran close to 30a(27.5) with a standard breaker but even that the breaker got almost hot after an hour and I have no idea how hot the wiring behind the wall got. Also running at 27.5a the prongs on my L14-30 plugs get quite warm after a couple of hours, can't imagine at 30+amps
