Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The BG Storm range weatherproof enclosures come complete with 20mm knockouts pre-made, so maximum cable size will depend on the capacity of the 20mm gland which us being used.
The terminals in the socket itself are capable of accepting 3x 2.5mm², 3x 4.0mm² or 2x 6.0mm² cables.

I require an external socket which provides a constant charge current of 13 amps. Is this plug suitable for sustained use of 5 to 6 hours on 13 amps, without overheating?

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
This weatherproof socket enclosure is rated at IP66 when closed, meaning that it will withstand pressurised jets of water from all directions, which should be more than adequate for a bathroom environment.
