£108.00£150.00 vat included

This Type 1 to Type 2 charging cable will charge any Type 1 socket EV at a Type 2 socket public charging point or wall charger. The cable will charge your EV up to the maximum AC charge for all Type 1 socket PHEV’s and fully electric vehicles sold in Europe. Available in lengths of 5M and 10M.

Please Read Before You Buy
Our cables are normally returned for one of the reasons below. Reading this information may help you to avoid having to send your order back to us. Please also read the Cable Description further down the page as it contains important information about this Type 1 to Type 2 charging cable.

  • Is your vehicle already supplied with a Type 1 charging cable? Please ask your dealer / seller if they have included an EV cable with your vehicle.
  • Is your cable long enough? Measure the length from your wall charger to where your vehicle will usually be parked (and take into account where the Type 1 vehicle socket is located) and add half a metre to avoid overstretch. If you are using the charging cable with a public charging point, the 5 metre cable is recommended as the 3 metre length can sometimes be too short.
  • Is this an extension cable? No. It cannot be used to daisy chain / convert a tethered cable or home / mains charger. So, the cable cannot connect to a Type 2 female (vehicle) plug. It can only be used to plug directly in to the socket of a Type 2 charging point.
  • Is this the correct type of charging cable for my vehicle? If you know that your vehicle has a Type 1 socket, then this cable is compatible with your vehicle. If you are unsure, check the list of Type 1 socket electric vehicles below or use our EV Cable Finder.
  • Is this a rapid charging cable? This is not a CHAdeMO cable. If you want a cable to use with a DC rapid charger, you do not need to buy one as the cable is always attached to the unit.
Cable Care & Safety
Our Type 1 to Type 2 cables have a 24 months manufacturer warranty, but they will give you trouble free use if you follow the safety instructions in the user booklet that you will receive with your charging cable. Please read it before using the cable. If you do not receive the user booklet, please let us know. Please also check out our EV Cable Care Guide for tips on how to safely use your EV cable and how to avoid the most common reasons why a Type 1 charging cable will stop working.

Charge A Type 1 Socket Electric Vehicle With A Home Wall Box Or Public Charging Point

Our Type 1 charging cable will provide your EV with the maximum current that it can accept. You can charge any PHEV/Hybrid or full electric vehicle with a Type 1 socket. You can connect the cable to a Type 2 socket charging point such as a wall charger or a public charging point. Commonly known as the Type 1 to Type 2 cable.

It does not matter if the Type 2 socket charging point is 3 Phase or 1 Phase because the charging point will work out how much current your vehicle will accept and how much current the cable can handle. This cable can therefore be used with ALL Type 2 charging points with an open socket.

This cable is not an extension cable. You will therefore not be able to use it to connect the Type 2 male plug to the Type 2 female plug of an EV cable or charger. It is therefore not suitable for charging points with a lead already attached. You can only insert the plug directly into the socket of a Type 2 charging point.

Choosing the Right Type 1 Charging Cable

Is My EV Type 1?

The socket of a Type 1 vehicle has 5 holes and will charge your vehicle up to 7.4kW. This is of course dependent on the charging capacity of the vehicle.

Our cables can be used with any AC (Alternating Current) charging point. These are wall chargers and the free charging points that you will find at supermarkets and retail parks, for example.

Is The Type 1 Cable Suitable For My EV?

Vehicle Compatibility

Our 32A Type 1 to Type 2 cables conform to the IEC J1772 standard, which means that they are compatible with a Type 2 charging point and any Type 1 socket vehicle.

The cable is capable of carrying up to 7.4kW current. However, the cable will only provide 3kw if that is the maximum charging capacity of your PHEV / EV. So, the Type 1 charging cable cable can be used with any Type 1 socket vehicle.

Some Type 1 socket vehicles will also have a CHAdeMO charging socket. You do not need to buy a cable to use this socket as all charging points that support CHAdeMO will already have a cable attached to it.

A CHAdeMO socket will allow an electric vehicle to be charged using a DC rapid charger. The CHAdeMO socket accepts Direct Current (DC) to charge the vehicle and can support speeds up to 400kW. However, Type 1 vehicles in Europe are more likely to charge up to 50kW, which is still more than 10 times faster when compared to the average speed of a Type 1 to Type 2 charging cable.

Use our EV Cable Finder to locate your EV / PHEV so you can check if your vehicle has the Type 1 socket.

Choice Of Cable Bags

We provide a free canvas cable bag (suitable for cables up to 10M) to store this charger when not in use. You can also upgrade the bag to a cable case made from EVA material for enhanced waterproofing and impact protection. The EVA case has an elasticated strap in the bottom compartment and elasticated mesh pocket in the top. So it allows convenient storage of two cables. The EVA case can therefore carry 2 cables if each cable does not exceed 10 metres length (20M total length).
