This cable will allow anyone with an EV fitted with:-


1/  A standard, BS1363, UK, 13A, 3-pin mains charging plug, or

2/  A CEE (blue commando) 16A, 3 pin inlet, or

3/  A European Schuko plug...


... (depending on type of adaptor ordered) to charge at any public or private Type 2 (Mennekes)-based EVSE (charging-point) facility.


Any Type 2 EVSE will work with the adaptor including the ChargeMaster (Polar/British Gas) units, PodPoint, ElektroBay etc.  Therefore it is suited for charging a Twizy, Vectrix, early 'dumb' i-MiEV etc, indeed, anything that has a mains (UK 13A, Schuko 16A or CEE/Commando as applicable) plug on it.  It will also work with with a so-called EV “Granny cable” AKA “Mode 2” charging cable ie a cable with a mains plug on one end, a 'brick' in the middle and a Type 1 (J1772) or Type 2 plug on the other end. 


This adaptor will handle up to a maximum of 16A (depending on type of adaptor ordered).  However, ultimately, the maximum power available to charge your EV will be dictated by your EV's on-board charger but no standard EV will have a 13A plug if it is capable of drawing more than 10A.


It would also work to charge an e-bike from a Type 2 EVSE (assuming you have the e-bike charger with you and it is fitted with a mains plug).


Whilst charging, the standard adaptor's Type 2 plug is normally locked into the EVSE but the mains plug is not, nor is the adaptor's mains socket waterproof so it should be ideally secured somewhere safe (eg locked in the boot - to prevent unauthorized disconnection) and dry when in use.


4 different standard sockets are offered: standard 13A, MasterPlug 13A, EU Schuko and 16A CEE (blue commando) - see photos.  Your choice of alternative socket can be requested at potentially extra cost including a 32A CEE (blue commando) one.


Generally, you should not use the manual release switch with EVSEs as it can ‘confuse’ them.  Most EVSEs that use a smartphone app will unlock the plug in the normal course of charging i.e. either when the EV has finished charging or when you command the EVSE to stop charging via the smartphone app.  However, some recently installed EVSEs (notably Sainsbury’s ones installed around the beginning of 2017), have an app but cannot be controlled by it.  In this case, the manual release switch should be used to switch off the EVSE and release the Type 2 plug.


Twizy Users:- The standard UK Twizy plug has a rather large 13A mains plug strain relief moulding which interferes with the proper closing of the MasterPlug version (only) socket lid.  You can remove 2 segments of the strain relief (as shown here...)  using either a craft knife or snippers which will allow the lid to close easily.  The standard Twizy plug will fit the Standard socket without modification.


Standard cable length between plug and socket is 3m in tuff, very flexible, 1.5mm2, H07-RNF (rubber) cable for UK socket use rated at 23A continuous or 2.5mm2 cable for Schuko and CEE versions, rated at 32A continuous - note again, though, that the actual maximum charging currents will be dependent on the mains supply and/or the EV charger - 10A from a UK mains socket and  up to ~16A from a CEE or Schuko socket.  


If you want a longer or shorter cable please ask.  10m is the maximum, 0.3m the minimum (specified length is the actual cable length ie that between plugs).


Cable weights are shown on the purchase button drop-down. 


Free Royal Mail or ParcelForce postage is included which usually takes 2-3 days within mainland UK (excluding weekends).
