£216.00£252.00 vat included

Type 1 to 3 pin charger that will charge the Type 1 socket Toyota Prius at 10A as well as 8A and 6A for PV (solar panel) charging. This charging cable will fit the Toyota Prius models that were manufactured in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. If the Toyota Prius model was manufactured (in Europe) after 2019, you will need the cable for the Toyota Prius, Type 2 socket. The adjustable current allows an EV to select a lower current as well being able to charge at lower currents for safer EV charging. Includes AC 30mA + DC 6mA Type B RCD protection. 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 all of the information below.

Please Read Before You Buy
Our Type 1 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 1 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 1 to 3-pin charger will help to ensure trouble-free use.

Use A 13A Socket To Charge The Type 1 Socket Toyota Prius.

This Type 1 to 3 pin charger can charge the Toyota Prius up to 10A, which equates to around 2.3kW. 3 pin chargers are ideally suited as a backup charging device.

Plug this charger into a 13A socket to charge your Toyota Prius up to 10A. Adjusting the charger’s current to 6A and 8A also enables compatibility with 3 pin sockets limited to less than 10A. This feature therefore allows connection to solar panels/PV systems.

Being able to reduce the charging current reduces the heat stress on a mains socket. This is important if a 13A socket lacks a dedicated circuit connection. Or where the circuit and socket haven’t been certified for EV charging by a qualified electrician.

This 3 pin charger also has a timer, enabling charging to start from 1 to 10 hours after plugging in. It also has AC 30mA + DC 6mA (Type B) fault detection

Is This Type 1 To 3 Pin Charger Suitable For The Toyota Prius?

Choosing The Right Charger

The socket of a Toyota Prius manufactured up to 2016 is Type 1 and this cable will therefore charge your vehicle up to it’s full capacity. If your vehicle is the Type 2 socket Toyota Prius (manufactured from 2017) you will need the Type 2 socket 3 pin charger.

Charging an EV for long periods with a 13A socket may cause thermal damage to the socket. For example, the socket might overheat if the socket has damaged, if there is faulty wiring, or if the electrical circuit is overloaded. It is rare, but it does happen.

For this reason, we strongly recommend having an electrician inspect the intended socket to certify its suitability for EV charging.

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

Avoid using an extension lead or adapter. Plug the charger directly into the socket. Ensure that water does not come into contact with the prongs of the 3-pin plug or enters inside the Type 1 plug. Keep the charger dry when not in use. Before using this charger, be sure to read the user booklet included with the charger.

Please note that Toyota did not manufacture this cable.

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 hold two cables, provided each cable is no longer than 10 meters (with a total combined length of 20 meters) and is 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.
