Adding a KWH meter to an EVSE

This weekend I got my $13 KWH meter from China and installed it on my Schneider EVlink EVSE.  The KWH meter is on Ebay here:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/171306062302?rmvSB=true and here http://www.ebay.com/itm/100A-Power-AC-Monitor-Voltage-Current-Power-Meter-Module-/271718272136?pt=UK_BOI_Electrical_Components_Supplies_ET&hash=item3f43abcc88.. The price seems to be dropping even lower. There are two models of the meter on Ebay.   Be warned that the one without the current-sense coil doesn’t handle 100A like this one.

The installation was very quick.  Most of the work was the cutout in the plastic case.  For that I used a drill press, hacksaw, utility knife and file.

Here are some pics:
