DS - 3 Pin and CEE 230V Charging Cable. 10/16/20/24/32 Amp, 3 Pin & CEE Adapter Plugs. Type 2
DS EVSE Portable Charger Variable 10, 16, 20, 24, 32 Amp
Type 2 DS compatible portable charger that will charge your Type 2 electric vehicle using a 230V 3 pin (Type G) plug or a blue 1 Phase 230V 32A CEE / Commando plug. You can also purchase an additional 16A 230V plug so that you have both 16A and 32A CEE 230V plugs. Our DS portable chargers (also known as a granny charger, mobile charging cable) are supplied with 2 adapters (you can also buy an additional 16A CEE plug) that allow connection to either a 3 pin socket or 32A 3 pin CEE socket, enabling connection to 3 pin, Type G outlets as well as the blue CEE / Commando outlets commonly found in campsites and industrial premises. The portable charger supplies a charge at either 10 amps, 16 amps , 20 amps, 24 amps or 32 amps to enable using the charger with a mains socket (10A) or a 1 Phase 16A CEE socket or 32A CEE socket. It is recommended to select the amp setting on the device so that it does not exceed the output power of the outlet. For example, do not set the amp setting to 32A for a 16A power outlet or to 16A for a 13A outlet. The setting has to be 10A when using a mains socket. The 16A to 32A setting can only be used for the corresponding 16A or 32A CEE socket. Please make sure that the outlet is protected by a suitable circuit breaker, otherwise exceeding the power setting may cause thermal damage to the outlet. Please ensure that the device is plugged directly and fully into the socket, do not use an extension lead with this device and ensure that the socket is checked by a qualified electrician to ensure that the power outlet is suitable for charging your vehicle. For mains socket charging we recommend a dedicated Type B RCBO socket. These DS home chargers are backed by a 1 year warranty.
This charging cable is compatible with the vehicles below. This list is updated so if you do not see your vehicle, please check your handbook or check that your vehicle socket matches the images above:

This DS CEE and home charger can be used in any 230V 3 pin or 230V 16A or 32A CEE / Commando socket (dependent upon the CEE adapter used) and complies with the IEC 61851 standard for charging DS EVs. This portable charger is not manufactured by DS however. You should therefore check with your manufacturer handbook to check whether you should be using a specific charger with your vehicle.
What is the benefit of variable charging?
Most portable chargers only charge using one amp setting. This portable charger can change power supply dependent upon the outlet that it is connected to, enabling faster charging up to 32A using a blue 32A CEE socket or 10A using a Type G 3 Pin socket. You can also purchase a 16A 230V plug for the blue 16A CEE sockets. The length it will take to recharge the battery for your EV will depend on the battery that your DS EV is equipped with, which will impact on the suitability of the setting that you should use. The portable chargers will stop charging the battery of your electric vehicle once it has reached full charge.
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.
If in doubt, please contact us via our contact page.
How to use the variable EV charger
Please read the user and safety instructions that come with this charger before using it. If you do not receive this information, please contact us. The required current can be selected by shaking the unit, double clicking a button icon, or swiping the supplied RFID. Within the first minute of plugging the DS portable charger into the Schuko or CEE socket, select a suitable Ampere setting. After 1 minute or once you plug the EV connector end into the vehicle, the setting is 'locked in'. To change the setting, repeat the above procedure. Your vehicle software will communicate with the device and only draw the maximum amount of power that the battery can accept.
