5m EV Charging Cables
Are you looking for an easy and simple solution to your electric vehicle charging needs?
Not too sure what length cable you require to recharge your green machine?
The 5m EV charging cable from EV Cable Shop is one of our most popular cables, due to its lightweight and reasonably short lead length, which limits trailing.
Designed to help you easily access both domestic and public charging points, our 5m recharging cable comes with a choice of different connector types on either end, including:
- Type 1 – the most popular adapter type for Japan and North America and features 5 internal pins.
- Type 2 – popular throughout Europe and the rest of the world, featuring 7 internal pins.
- 3-pin – to connect up to the UKs domestic energy supply and recharge from your in-home power sockets.
Allowing you to choose what is right for you and your electric vehicle.

How can I stop my 5m charging cable from being stolen or damaged?
EV Cable Shop recommends keeping any vehicle chargers, including the 5m EV cable, in a secure dry place when it is not in use.
This will make them much harder for opportunistic thieves to target and also keep them safe from accidental damage.
Although our 5m recharging cable has a high IP rating, which makes it durable and resistant to water and dust ingress, exposing the vehicle chargers to elements may cause the metal pins to become rusty and reduce the life expectancy of the product.

Who is the 5m EV recharging cable created for?
Our 5m vehicle chargers are suitable for pretty much anyone with an electric or plug-in hybrid car, that can position their electric vehicle with 5m of their recharging point – if you aren’t sure if this is you, the easiest way to check is with a tape measure!
Most people choose a 5m connection because it’s much more cost-effective to have one cable that will reach your charging point at home, at your workplace, and in public, rather than paying three times for separate products.
5m too short for your needs? No worries, here at EV Cable Shop, we sell a variety of sizes, including a 10m charging cable with both Type 1 and Type 2 connections.
