EV Chargers & Cables
We supply and fit EV Chargers plus stock cables for new and
existing charge points
Type 2 connectors
These connectors are the most common in Europe for charging your electric car at home, on a standard AC electricity supply.
Type 2 connectors are often called ‘Mennekes’ connectors, after the German manufacturer that invented the design. They have a 7-pin plug.
Most untethered, or ‘universal’, charging points in European homes will have a Type 2 socket. So, the cable you get out of your EV’s boot needs to have a Type 2 plug on one end to go into the universal charging point on your wall.
Type 1 connectors
This type of connector is mainly found in North America and is used for home charging on AC electricity supplies.
The type 1 connector has a 5-pin plug.
Type 1 connectors are found in Europe, but usually on older models of electric car, such as early Nissan Leafs and Kia Soul EVs, plus the Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero.
