obesity..........injections

I don't believe we're authorized to address these sorts of issues, as we'd have to venture into all the areas which are specifically taboo.

I meant the 110/220V split-phase system in the US compared to the 220V/phase 380V 3-phase system we have over here in europe.
But what you've said sounds like a total mess.

IIRC the 220V in my country is usually 3-phase, while the 380V is found only at some industrial installations.

Brazil is the country of gambiarra. What would you expect? If I told you about every strange thing I see here, you'd be impressed.

I don't mean to make some sort of a stereotype, but from what I've heard it seems pretty much all Central and South America have about the same electrical systems. I don't forsee any sort of a mass migration to plug-in vehicles any time in the near future in those countries, except maybe for public transport only.

I meant the 220/110V system in the US, they use split phase there without RCDs in the breaker box.
That means phases are 180 seperated with a neutral in between.
So they get 110V+110V, plus if a hot wire is touched and a ground fault created, nothing is stopping it unless there is so much current flowing through the poor individual touching the hot wire that the fuse blows.
Here in europe we have 220V phases and 380V 3-phase, we also have RCDs in the breaker box wich stop the current after miliseconds even if its only a few mA.

Would you have the time or even the space in the forum?

There are so many strange makeshifts I see almost every day, and some might be relatable to cars so there might be space for them on the forum.

Sure there are many technical similarities, usually influenced by either British or American companies.

I remember seeing BYD electric buses tested in my hometown, but I still see hybrids as more viable. Most of the plug-in vehicles I see are hybrids, yet in some cities there are some rich folks who buy expensive EVs either because they want to get access to what is portrayed as a breakthrough tech or just to show off.
