* What is IP54 Rating?
The IP54 (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. The rubber dust cover provides minimal protection against water ingress so care should be taken to not leave cable exposed to the elements when not in use.

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.

To offer the best range of EV Cable lengths & colours we combine both made-to-order (custom) and made-for-stock (in stock) processes.
Our pricing is based on a number of factors including our cost price and stock availability.
We try to keep stock of all popular lines, but where we custom build you a cable it does increase our costs and therefore the retail price.
Occasionally you may also see the same length and current of cable, in stock, for a different price for different colours.
For example, sometimes if we're low on stock of a certain popular colour / length, we'll custom build one and put it into stock to keep the best availability for our customers. But the custom build process costs us more than a full factory run which is then reflected in the retail price.
You have 30 days to change your mind about the purchase. A refund of the sale is available within 30 days (excluding postage costs) if the Item is new and has never been used. Only the cost of the product without any freight costs will be refunded. Please use the return procedure outlined below.

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.
