Experience Worry-Free EV Charging with unmatched Safety and Personalisation
Engineered for Durability and Reliability — Your Trusted, Tailor-Made Solution
Introducing the Wottz Type 2 EV Cable (available in 7.4kW or 3.7kW, 2 to 50m), your ideal companion for electric vehicle charging at home. This Type 2 to Type 2 charging cable is crafted with precision and care in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, surpassing safety benchmarks and industry standards, offering you an unmatched combination of safety, value, and personalisation.
- Comprehensive Quality Assurance: Every Type 2 EV charger cable is subjected to an exhaustive digital testing across 50 specialised metrics. This includes insulation resistance, continuity, phase rotation, four-wire Kelvin low-resistance, and coding resistor tests. This rigorous approach ensures unparalleled safety and reliability for peace of mind.
- Precision-Engineered Hyperboloid Contacts: Designed for ultimate durability with up to 10,000 mating cycles, each contact is sized-matched and hydraulically crimped to its corresponding conductor core, ensuring an optimal, safe connection with minimal heat generation.
- Advanced Silver Coating: Boosts conductivity while offering superior protection against water corrosion, thanks to a 5-micrometre coating on each contact.
- Enhanced Oversized Pilot Core for Signal Integrity: Unlike the industry-standard 0.5mm² pilot cores used for charge point-to-vehicle communication, our EV cable Type 2 features an oversized 0.75mm² pilot core. It reduces the risk of communication failure in two key ways: (a) by enhancing the cable's resilience to prolonged flexing, which could otherwise cause the pilot wire to break, and (b) by mitigating voltage drop—an issue particularly relevant for cables longer than 5 metres—that could compromise signal integrity.
- Personalisation: Choose from a variety of lengths and colours to fit your unique needs, with cables from 2m to 50m and in 3 colours (black, blue, yellow)
- Lightweight & Ultra-Flexible: Our proprietary Wottz Cable Flex technology ensures our Type 2 charging cables are lightweight and flexible without sacrificing durability, making it easier for you to carry, coil, and store them when you're on the go.
- Superior Water Resistance: IP54 rating and plug covers for ultimate protection.
- Eco-Friendly: With every Type 2 to Type 2 charging cable, we plant a tree, and our cables are designed to be repairable, extending their lifespan and reducing our carbon footprint.
- Free Cable Bag: Each Wottz Standard Charging Cable (up to 15m) comes with a complimentary cable bag, aiding in easy cable management and storage while enhancing portability.
- Wottz 2-Year Warranty: Peace of mind guaranteed by a ‘Made in Britain’ manufacturer.

Cable Care & Charging Saftey
- 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.
What are the risks of charging in the rain?
Water can still get into the plug and charging socket during the insertion and removal 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.
Please note: This EV cable is NOT an extension cable.
