Magic answer = 684. also cable is stamped as 2.5mm; so despite saying 20a it looks like it will achieve only 3.7.
Works as designed. 16A on single phase (i.e. only one of the wires is used) is 230V*16A=3.7kW, 16A on three phases (i.e. all three wires are used) is 3*230V*16A=11kW.

With a 32A cable, you could get 230V*32A=7.4kW on single phase, if the charger supports it.

Edit: The two links you posted show thicker cables, they should be good for 32A.

These are the 16a (top) and 32A (bottom) CEE adapters for the Juice Booster with the PS key for reference. Note the thickness of the cable and the specification on the cable (2.5mm^2 vs. 6.0mm^2)

What I can't figure is if you can get 7.5KW on single-phase why is 3 phase limited to 11Kw, and not 22Kw on 3 phase.
