3 Pin Charger For Plugging A Type 1 Socket EV Into A 13A Home / Mains Socket

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 1 portable charger.

Our portable chargers (also known as a granny cable or home charger) are compatible with all Type 1 socket electric vehicles (BEV, PHEV, Hybrid).

Plug this charger into a 13A socket and charge your EV at 10A. This charger is recommended as an emergency back-up. For example, if you are visiting an area without any charging facilities nearby.

If you are using a 13A socket to charge your EV for longer periods, we recommend our adjustable 3 pin EV charger.

Choosing The Right Charger

To use this 3-pin charger, your EV must have a Type 1 socket. Refer to the photo of a Type 1 socket on this page and match it to your EV.

If you are still not sure, click the button below to find your EV/PHEV. This will enable you to verify if your vehicle is equipped with a Type 1 socket. Additionally, please review the information at the top of this page under “Please Read Before You Buy”. This information will help you to avoid the most common reasons for returning a 3-pin charging cable.

Use A Suitable Socket

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. This assessment should include factors such as the duration (e.g., 4 hours charging at a time), and the frequency of EV charging (e.g., daily).

Avoid using an extension lead or adapter with this Type 1 to 3 pin charger. 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.

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.
