If you are swapping your Type 2 for a Type 1 or vice versa, you might need a Type 1 or 2 holster to store your charger plug and cable safely when not in use as the existing holster will not fit.  These cost £12 and £17 extra respectively (save £2 and £3 on buying them separately).  Please click here... to add the holster at the discounted price (only to be used when buying a holster as part of a larger order).

T2___UK_13A.html


Please note that the pins in these EVSE plugs are typically crimped to the cable conductors using a relatively specialist, heavy-duty crimping tool.  Therefore, unless you have access to such a tool, it is impractical to replace the plug alone and a pre-fitted cable/plug combination is usually required.  The old one can usually be sold on.


The fitting of the replacement cable (and removal of the original) should be done only by a ‘competent person’.  Guidance for ‘competent persons’ wanting to do this work for the common UK EVSEs can be found below.


Also note that, because these cable/plug sets are intended for use with fixed EVSEs, they do not come with dust caps.  If required, dust caps can be ordered separately from the same ‘Add to Cart’ dropdown as the cables.  ‘PO’ means bought as Part of a larger Order as postage cost can be shared.  ‘BO’ means “bought alone’.  3 phase plug dust caps are the same as ‘1 Phase’.


Standard lengths are 3m, 5m, 8m & 10m. 


Cable diameters are as follows (to assist in ordering correct size gland nuts):-

16A 1 phase - 13mm, 16A 3 phase - 16mm, 32A 1 phase - 17mm & 32A 3 phase - 20mm

NOTE: Please email sales@evbitz.uk with your EVSE make ie ChargeMaster/Polar/British Gas (all the same), PodPoint, Rolec, BMW etc when paying as the EVSE-end cable conductor terminations vary. In the absence of such a message the terminations will be as in the picture, above.

Got An EVSE With one Plug Type and Just Bought an EV with The Other Socket Type?


You have 3 options. 


1/ Buy a second EVSE and either sell on or keep the existing one.  Personally, I recommend the ‘free cable’ type (rather than the tethered type you have now) as this can be used to charge EVs fitted with both types of socket (ie all modern EVs).  You can avoid the hassle of having to plug and unplug the cable by simply leaving one in place (using a separate holster or 2 for proper plug stowage) which can simply be un-plugged from the EVSE when you need to charge an EV with the alternative socket type.  That EV will have to supply their own ‘free cable’ of course, but most EVs have one - for ‘opportunity charging’.


2/ You can swap the existing plug and cable for the alternative one (you are in the right place!).  


3/  You can use an adaptor.  This option has the advantage of allowing you to continue to use your existing EVSE to charge suitably-equipped EVs in the future (without the adaptor, obviously!).  See here for 'Type 2 to Type 1 Adapter' and 'Type 1 to Type 2 Adapter'.

This product is a tethered SINGLE PHASE Type 1 or Type 2 (female) plug attached to either 2.5mm2 (16A) or 6.0mm2 (32A) cable, pre-terminated with ferrules for wiring into your EVSE (ie charge point - ChargeMaster, Rolec, PodPoint etc) for either damaged cables/plugs or where you want to change from one type of plug to the other.
