Type 2 to 3 Pin Charging Cable. 10A Home Charger For 13A Mains Socket

Item Description and Specification

Type 2 to 3 Pin Charging Cable 10 Amp

Charge your electric vehicle at your home, office or anywhere that has a 13A 3 pin Type G plug socket (BS 1363) with our Type 2 granny cable. Our granny cables (also known as a portable charger or home charger) are compatible with hybrid and electric vehicles, charging at a maximum capacity of 10 amps. Just plug the 3 pin plug into a 13 amp 3 pin socket and plug the Type 2 IEC 62196-2 charging plug into the socket of your PHEV / BEV. Our home chargers are backed by a 1 year warranty. Should you need the Type 1 version of this home charger then please go to our Type 1 home charger with 3 pin Type G (UK) plug.

This portable charger has several safeguards for added protection while charging:

  • Overvoltage Protection.
  • Device PCB Overheat Protection.
  • Lightning Protection.
  • Overcurrent Protection
  • Waterproof Housing
  • Earth Fault Protection

The Type 2 to 3 pin charging cable can be used in any country that supports the 3 pin plug (Type G Plug). Charging your electric vehicle daily using a 13a mains socket may cause a high load on the circuit if it is shared by other appliances. 3 pin chargers are therefore recommended for emergency use unless your circuit or socket has been checked by an electrician.

Why do most 3 pin chargers only charge at 10A?

When charging your EV using a 13A socket, a safety limit of 10A is imposed. While a 3 pin socket can handle a maximum current of 13A, the average 13A socket is designed to endure this level of current for only short periods of time. The 3 pin charger is the slowest EV charging method, necessitating several hours of charging that inevitably subjects the socket to significant heat stress. As a consequence, charging your vehicle with 13A instead of 10A is more likely to lead to thermal damage to both the plug and socket.

The established safe practice for charging an EV with a household or any 13A 3-pin socket is to charge within the range of 6A to 10A. 3 pin chargers are available with the capability to charge at 13A. Despite the slightly faster charging rate offered by a 3 pin 13A charger, we choose not to sell them due to safety concerns. Even charging at 10A carries a risk of thermal damage, especially if the EV is being charged over long durations. Unless an electrician certifies that the socket and circuit are suitable for EV charging, we recommend our Type 2 to 3 pin adjustable amp charging cable. A 3 pin charging cable supporting 6A and 8A is also considered safer for temporary use with 3 pin sockets that have not been tested by an electrician. This choice significantly reduces the risk of damage when charging your vehicle, whether on holiday or using the household socket of a family or friend.

Please ensure that the socket where you charge your vehicle is checked by a qualified electrician to ensure that the power outlet is suitable for EV charging and is protected against the causes of overheating. We also recommend that you use a dedicated circuit with Type B RCD installed by a qualified electrician. Do not plug the charger into an extension cord or adapter. Please read your vehicle handbook and the user and safety instructions included with this charger before using it. If you do not receive our user manual, please contact us.

Charging cable checklist

To ensure that the cable you purchase is right for you, please read the following checklist:

  • Make sure the charging cable is compatible with your vehicle. The photos at the top of the page show you what the pins in the connectors look like so you can match the cable to your vehicle.
  • Make sure that the length of the cable is sufficient to reach the charging socket of your vehicle. We recommend allowing at least half a metre so that the cable is not overstretched.
  • If you do not have your electric vehicle yet, please check with the manufacturer or dealer / seller to confirm if it is already equipped with a 3 pin charging cable.
  • Please check with your manufacturer or dealer to confirm that a Fixed Amp charger is suitable for your vehicle. Your dealer may recommend that your EV needs a charging cable that can adjust the charging current. We stock charging cables that can vary the current if this is the case.

If in doubt, please contact us via our contact page.
