The charger will provide up to 2.3kW when using a 13A socket at home or anywhere there is a 3 pin UK socket (Type G socket). A canvas cable bag is supplied with your charger and there is the option to upgrade to a case that will store more than one EV cable. Please read the user booklet included with your cable before using it. Read below for important information about this charging cable.

Please Read Before You Buy
Our Type 2 to 3 pin charging cables are normally returned for one of the reasons below. Reading this information may help you to avoid having to return the charger. Please also read the Description tab further down the page as it contains important information about this 3 pin EV charger.

  • Ensure compatibility between the charging cable and your vehicle. The images on this page provide a visual guide to the connector pins, allowing you to match the cable plug to your vehicle socket. You can also use our EV Cable Finder to locate your vehicle and explore the charging cables available for your vehicle.
  • Is the cable long enough? Measure the distance from your 3-pin socket to your Type 2 vehicle socket, typically where your vehicle is parked, and add half a meter to prevent overstretching the cable.
Cable Care & Safety
To ensure the proper care of your charger, be sure to follow the safety instructions outlined in the user booklet provided with your charging cable. These chargers have a 12 months manufacturer warranty. However, following the instructions and safety information for using the Type 2 to 3-pin charger will help to ensure trouble-free use. In case you do not receive the user booklet, please notify us. Additionally, check our EV Cable Care Guide for valuable tips on safely using your 3-pin charging cable and avoiding common issues that may lead to the charger malfunctioning.

Use A 13A Socket To Charge All Models Of The DS 3 Crossback At Home Or At Any 3 Pin 13A Socket

This DS 3 Crossback compatible charger offers adjustable current settings, allowing you to charge the DS 3 Crossback up to the recognised safe limit of 10A. Due to the limitations of charging your EV when using a 13A socket, 3-pin chargers are recommended as a backup or for emergency use. The exception is if an electrician certifies the 13A socket as suitable for EV charging.

Adjusting the charger’s current to 6A, 8A, and 10A, enables compatibility with sockets requiring less than 10A. This feature therefore allows connection to solar panels/PV systems.

The 3-pin charger is designed for plugging into a 13A 3-pin socket. The 10A setting represents the maximum current the DS 3 Crossback should draw from a 13A socket.

When using a 13A socket for regular charging of the DS 3 Crossback, the lower 6A and 8A settings are available, minimizing the heat impact on the mains socket. This is important for 13A sockets without a dedicated circuit connection. Or when a qualified electrician has not certified the circuit and socket.

Is This Type 2 To 3 Pin 10A Charger Suitable For The DS 3 Crossback?

Choosing The Right Charger

The DS 3 Crossback has a Type 2 socket as standard, ensuring compatibility with this charger.

Charging an EV with a 13A socket may cause thermal damage if the socket overheats due to damaged or faulty wiring or if the electrical circuit is overloaded.

For this reason, we strongly recommend having an electrician inspect the intended socket for EV charging to certify its suitability. This assessment should encompass factors such as the set current (6A, 8A, or 10A), charging duration (e.g., 4 hours at a time), and the frequency of EV charging (e.g., daily).

We understand that, at times, charging your EV with a socket certified by an electrician may not be feasible. In such instances, we recommend using the lower amp setting of 6A. It is also a good idea to ensure that both the plug and socket are not becoming excessively hot during the EV charging process.

Avoid using an extension lead or adapter with this 3 pin charger. Plug the charger directly into the vehicle socket of the DS 3 Crossback. Ensure that water does not come into contact with the prongs of the 3-pin plug or enters inside the Type 2 plug. Keep the charger dry when not in use. Before usage, be sure to read the user booklet included with the charger.

Please note that the manufacturer of this vehicle did not manufacture this charging cable.

Do You Want A Charger With Multiple Adapters?

If you’re in search of a flexible EV charger compatible with various power sockets, then consider our multi-adapter charger. The charger supports charging from both 1 Phase and 3 Phase sockets, and provides a current range of 6A to 32A.

This charger allows connection to a variety of outlets. For instance, the 3 pin and 5 pin Commando sockets, the 13A mains socket, and the 16A Euro (Schuko) socket. You have the flexibility to choose the specific adapters you need for your charger. Furthermore, it incorporates a charging timer, enabling charging to start anywhere from 1 to 10 hours after being plugged in. When using the 3 pin UK plug adapter, the charger will automatically select a safe 10A charging mode.

For a detailed breakdown of the maximum currents provided by the multi-adapter charger when used with different adapter/power outlets, refer to the table below:

Adapter & OutletMax kW
3 Phase CEE 32A22kW
3 Phase CEE 16A11kW
1 Phase CEE 32A7,4kW
1 Phase CEE 16A3,7kW
UK 13A 2,2kW
Schuko 16A3,7kW

The maximum current displayed in the above table will not necessarily align with the current that the EV/PHEV can accept. In other words, the vehicle can only accept up to the maximum current of its onboard charger (OBC).

Available multiadapters

EV Cable Bag And Case

We provide a canvas cable bag (suitable for cables up to 10M) to store this charger when not in use. The bag can also be upgraded to a cable carrier case made from EVA material, which has improved waterproof and impact protection. The EVA case has an elasticated strap in the bottom compartment and elasticated mesh pocket in the top to allow convenient storage of two cables. The EVA case can carry 2 cables if each cable does not exceed 10 metres length (20M total length) and are neatly wound. You can replace the canvas cable bag with an EVA case by selecting the option available in the basket or on the checkout page.
