BMW EV Charging Cable. 16A Type 2 to Type 2 Connectors For Charging Station / Wall Charger

Item Description and Specification

16A Type 2 BMW compatible charging cable.

This 1 Phase 16A Type 2 to Type 2 EV charging cable with secure locking plugs is a compatible BMW charger that will charge the Type 2 BMW range of hybrid and electric vehicles up to a maximum of 16 amps (3.7kW).

This cable is a Type 2 charging cable, also known as a Mennekes charger / plug, that will be compatible with home/office charging units and the public charging stations you will find at service stations and on the street, ie Mode 3 charging. Please note that these charging cables cannot be used to adapt or extend an existing charging cable. These charging cables have a 2 year warranty.

Do I need a 1 Phase 32A EV cable for my BMW?

Our 32 amp EV cables can be used with the following BMW plug-in vehicles. This list is continually updated so please check your handbook, check that your vehicle socket matches the images above, or contact us if your electric vehicle is not listed:

BMW 225xe, BMW 320e, BMW 330e, BMW 520e, BMW 530e, BMW 740e and 745e, BMW i3, BMW i4, BMW i5, BMW i7, BMW i8, BMW iX, BMW iX1, BMW iX3, BMW X1, BMW X2, BMW X3, BMW X5, BMW XM

A 1 Phase 32 amp charger is compatible with all models of Type 2 BMW electric vehicles, but dependent upon the on-board charger and charge point, it may not be able to provide the advantages of 1 Phase fast charging. If you have a BMW EV that has 3.7kw charging capacity then it will only charge to a maximum of 3.7kW. However, purchasing a 32A EV cable will allow you to use the faster charging capability of up to 7.4kw should you be looking to upgrade your EV in the future. Click here if you would like to buy a 32A BMW charger. Our BMW charging cable is compatible but not manufactured by BMW, so, if you are unsure, double check your handbook or get advice from your BMW dealer for more information about which charging cable is recommended for your vehicle.

Can I buy a rapid charging cable?

Rapid charging cables are capable of providing between 25 kW and 350 kW of power. If your electric vehicle has a CCS socket (Type 2 vehicles) or CHAdeMO socket (Type 1 vehicles) then it is capable of rapid charging. These charging cables are predominately available at public charging points and the cables are attached to the charging station, so you will therefore not need to buy a rapid charging cable.

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

  • Verify that the charging cable is compatible with your EV. The photos at the top of the page show you what the pins in the connectors look like so you can match the cable plug to your vehicle socket.
  • This cable cannot be used to adapt or extend an existing charging cable. If a charging cable is already connected to a charging point, then this cable cannot be used to extend the length by daisy-chaining them together. The cable can only be used with the open socket of a charging point.
  • Make sure that the length of the charging cable is suitable for your charging requirements. If you are using a public charging station, we recommend a length of 5 meters as it is not always possible to park so that the vehicle socket is near side to the charging station. If you are using the cable with a wall charger at home or at an office, measure the length required to reach the vehicle socket. We advise allowing an additional half meter of slack to prevent the cable from being overstretched or lifted from the ground, reducing the risk of it becoming a potential tripping hazard.
  • 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 charging cable.
  • This charging cable is compatible with AC charging stations commonly found in supermarkets, retail parks, on the street, and wall chargers typically installed outside a home or office. It is not a DC fast charging cable, also known as CCS and CHAdeMO. You do not need to buy a cable to use fast charging stations, as they are already connected to the charging station.

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

We recommend a hi-vis colour for your BMW charger

When charging at public charging points, EV charging cables can pose a potential obstacle, especially in low-light conditions. Exercise caution when leaving your cable unattended. Opting for our green standard charging cables can enhance visibility, minimising the risk of accidents.

If you would like a home charger to charge your BMW EV using a domestic or industrial socket please browse our range of CEE and 3 pin portable EV chargers.
