Type 1 Charging Cables
The Type 1 charging cable refers to the plug that is inserted into the socket of the vehicle. The Type 1 plug has 5 pins and a button on top of the plug. You may therefore hear the term Type 1 to 3 pin charging cable and Type 1 to Type 2 charging cable and this identifies that the charging cable can be used either with a 3 pin socket (Type 1 to 3 pin) or with a Type 2 charging station or wall charger (Type 1 to Type 2). A Type 2 charging station represents the vast majority of public charging points and home wall chargers.
Type 1 socket vehicles are less common than their Type 2 vehicle socket counterparts. The most popular Type 1 socket vehicles are the Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan Leaf (manufactured between 2012 - 2017), the Nissan NV200 and the Toyota Prius (manufactured between 2011 - 2016). Type 1 vehicles are mainly PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles) and they will accept less current, so you will only find cables that can charge up to 1 Phase 16A or 32A. Some Type 1 vehicles will also have a rapid charging CHAdeMO socket, which will enable you to charge the vehicle at a faster rate than the Type 1 to Type 2 cable. The CHAdeMO socket is for DC rapid charging is only available in public locations. You do not need to buy a cable to use a DC rapid charger as the cable is always attached to the unit.
