Please note that it is not recommended to use an adaptor as a permanent charging solution, as the adaptor does not have the same IP rating as our other EV cables.
We recommend replacing the tethered Type 1 cable with a Type 2 tethered cable or for households with both Type 1 and Type 2 vehicles, we recommend changing the EVSE (Charge point) to a socketed version.
All Our Cables Come with an industry-leading 2.5 year warranty.
* What is IP44 Rating?
The IP44 (Ingress Protection Rating) means our cables will operate in dusty conditions and will resist splashes of water while mated. However, the charging process is not fully water sealed and the cables should not be submerged in water.

Charging Cable Safety
- The cable should be kept out of puddles but can be kept outside.
- Please remember to use the rubber dust cover to keep debris from collecting in the connector when not in use.
- Moisture is the most common issue experienced and will lead to corrosion of the pins which are not covered by our warranty.
Risks of charging in the rain?
Water can still get into the plug and charging socket during the inserting and removing of the plug from the car. In fact, as soon as you open the charge port or unplug your car, the rain will get onto the pins and stay there until the next time you charge.

Q - Would this product/item/cable work as an extension cable?
A - No. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards don't allow for extension cables on EV Cables.The IEC standard is clear on the matter; “A cord extension set or second cable assembly shall not be used in addition to the cable assembly for the connection of the EV to EVSE.”. Therefore any EV extension cable will sit outside of the standards and may affect your vehicle warranty in the event of a claim. More details and options here:https://evcables.co.uk/pages/ev-extension-cable
Q - Why is one of the pins further back on my plug?
A - This is part of the standard. It is a safety feature on the plugs/cable so when it is unplugged the power disconnects first.
Charging Cable Checklist
Before buying your EV cable, make sure you’ve selected the right cable for your electric
vehicle with our checklist:
Confirm the charging cable is compatible with your electric vehicle (EV). Use our car model search to find the correct cable for your vehicle, or check if your vehicle is listed in the ‘Car Checker’ tab. Want to double check? Simply speak to our team.
Check it’s the right length for your needs. For example, if you’re using a public charging station, we recommend a length of 5 metres because it’s not always possible to park on the nearest side of the charging station. If you’re using the cable with a wall charger at home or work, simply measure the length needed to reach the vehicle socket.
Don’t have your electric vehicle yet? Check with the manufacturer, dealer or seller to confirm if it already comes with a charging cable.
This cable can’t be used to adapt or extend an existing charging cable. If a charging cable is already connected to a charging point, it can’t be daisy-chained together to extend the length. It can only be used with the open socket of a charging point.
This EV charging cable is compatible with AC charging stations usually found in supermarkets, retail parks, on the street and wall chargers, typically installed outside a home or office. It’s not a DC fast charging cable (also known as CCS and CHAdeMO), so you don’t need to buy a cable to use fast charging stations as they’re already connected to the charging station.
Still unsure? Simply get in touch and we’ll make sure you buy right first time.
