I changed this transformer rectifier unit and install new one with 230V AC output 18V DC (see foto). Everything is ok.

I have just modified my Japanese 200V charger with the same unit above. It is quite a good fit, some slotting of the mounting holes and trimming a small bit of plastic in the evse case and it can be installed securely.
I only found 3 wires going to the original plug with no sign of a thermistor.
I also swapped out the Japanese plug for a 16A caravan one, I figure it's the right rating and I can easily install a socket in my garage plus I could charge the car at any campgound if needed.

Can i ask for some help from you to convert mine as well ? I have similar one and would like to get a similar conversion done. I have already used the Gen 1 charger in the past on 10 amps and burnt 2 plugs
