    1. Why can you cut your "wall" with a saw?
    2. Why is this the fuse box so messy?
    3. Don't you have proper tools to strip wires?

    At least Linus knows how to riff with a Tradesman. Hop on to any construction jobsite, and you'll hear some either lighthearted jokes, or raunchy smutt. glad Linus can do both

    What you also need Linus is a Zappi just awesome. Also if you are going on to full EV reviews you can't miss out on this. If there is something similar in Canada or the US i'm not aware of it.

    If it's overkill, you can always strip off the extra copper strands, repair it with electrical glue, and get a few dollars back, when recycling it.
    You can use as much carbon and silicon as you want in your life. But metals are shiny, and valuable. Everyone needs to be rationed on how much they can own, and use in their lifetime.

    Buying battery powered cars is unbelievably inconsiderate. For humankind's sake, please spare a thought for the children who have mine for these battery minerals.
    "Picking through a mountain of huge rocks with his tiny bare hands, the exhausted little boy makes a pitiful sight.
    His name is Dorsen and he is one of an army of children, some just four years old, working in the vast polluted mines of the Democratic Republic of Congo, where toxic red dust burns their eyes, and they run the risk of skin disease and a deadly lung condition. Here, for a wage of just 8p a day, the children are made to check the rocks for the tell-tale chocolate-brown streaks of cobalt - the prized ingredient essential for the batteries that power electric cars."

    And this is why electricians do the chicken dance. Because when someone says why dont you turn the main breaker off you just laugh and call them a pussy and that takes to much but the right way osha aprroved way would be to kill all potential energy while you are working with what you are working with.

    You have only 120 and 240 Volt?
    In Germany we have 230 and 400.
    230 V ("L" (active) and "N" neutral and PE (Protection Earth). with max. 16 A
    400 V (L1, L2, L3, N and PE with 16 A, 32 A and 63 A
    But 63A is not i often in Houses.
    House Uplink has 50 or 63A with 400V

    I personally would have just had a receptical installed then plug it in. That way if you move you just unplug it and take it with you and if the next owner doesn't have an electric car they just have a receptical to look at and not an entire unit in their garage.

    For AC charging, the charger is in the vehicle. You should call that a charge station because each vehicle has a charger with a specific acceptance rate. In California, there are rules about the allowed height for installing your EVSE (charge station).

    given your status as an influencer i'm surprised that elon musk guy didnt just send you a couple power walls and chargers and a model 3 and model s and that new solar roof that looks like a normal roof to have you evaluate it all.
