Product Description

Electric cars are great but, like petrol or diesel powered models, they need refuelling and in the same way, as a hose delivers petrol to a car’s tank so an EV charging cable delivers energy to the electric vehicle’s battery pack and for that, a plug-in source is needed. That’s why charging cables have connectors at either end. This can cause confusion with new adopters of the technology. Some cars have Type 1 to Type 2 connectors while others have Type 2 to Type 2 cable connectors.

Here at the EV Cable Shop we offer a wide variety of 16amp or 32amp  charging cables. We also provide 3 phase power cables for high capacity vehicles like the Tesla range. When buying either new or used electric cars prospective buyers should note that early production electric cars were fitted with a 3.6KW onboard charger as standard. They need a 16amp cable. More recent vehicles have 7KW onboard charge capability which requires a 32amp cable, for example. If in doubt, check out our model descriptions for the best fit.

All electric cars come supplied with a standard charging cable that can plug into a common household electrical outlet. Thus electric car charging at home using a domestic 3-pin socket is fine but slow (overnight) and it is recommended that for home use and for fast-charging public points and at commercial premises another cable is needed. That’s why we recommend carrying one of our latest charging cables on board and keep the standard cable at home.

    The cable is surprisingly light, I ordered this type 1 to Type 2 Charging Cable and haven’t been disappointed yet.
    It has proven to withstand rain, snow and the polar vortex Very well made, The only you have to do is, take care of it so no damage comes to it.
