Question on 220V for LT5 miner


I have an EV outlet setup for my car at 30 amps. I am guessing at 80% efficiency the wattage comes out to be around 2600 W, I have a couple fo questions :

  • Can I repurpose the EV outlet to use for Mining?
  • The miner requires around 3000W, is it worth trying at all?

having installed tesla charging stations your best bet would be to put a junction box before the 220 line goes into the charging station. Then run a line to a nema l20-30 socket so you can plug a PDU unit with nema l20-30 plug then connect your PSU to the PDU. 240v @30 amps should be able to handle up to around 5000 W ball park figure.

This way you can still have your ev port and have power source for your for mining. i just would not have them both going at the same time the amp draw might be too much.

Thanks, the plug and line is already done and i am wondering if i can use an adapter to plugin the miner into nema plug. Do you think thats possible? If so any suggestion on what hardware to buy? Thanks in advance

I have seen on amazon Nema L6-20 to psu leads. Best bet would be to get a Power Distribution Unit (PDU) to plug the miner into using c13-c14 leads. Then The PDU will connect to the outlet. i am currently doing something similar but using my 240v dryer outlet that we do not use. For that i have a dryer cord running into a junction box then 14/2 romex wire which will connect to a L6-20 socket which is what the PDU plugs into then c13 to c14 psu leads to connect the miners.

  • 15-amp 120-volt circuit: 15 amps x 120 volts = 1,800 watts
  • 20-amp 120-volt circuit: 20 amps x 120-volts = 2,400 watts
  • 25-amp 120-volt circuit: 25 amps x 120 volts = 3,000 watts
  • 20-amp 240-volt circuit: 20 amps x 240 volts = 4,800 watts
  • 25-amp 240-volt circuit: 25 amps x 240 volts = 6,000 watts
  • 30-amp 240-volt circuit: 30 amps x 240 volts = 7,200 watts
  • 40-amp 240-volt circuit: 40 amps x 240 volts = 9,600 watts
  • 50-amp 240-volt circuit: 50 amps x 240 volts = 12,000 watts
  • 60-amp 240-volt circuit: 60 amps x 240 volts = 14,400 watts

The simple A x V = W formula can be restated in a number of ways, such as W ÷ V = A, or W ÷ A = V.
