define cheap, as I have seen them going for $800 bucks here in the states, and are you saying you know how to control one of these?
Here's a few options of yours and another variant on eBay for about $200 USD...

I don't yet have the ability to query one, that would be the next step of investigation. I've also been looking at VAG ones, with most of the older ones being 3.6 kW or 7.2 kW, but the more modern MEB ones have an 11 kW 3 phase option as well.
