Type 1 to Type 2 Electric Car Charging cable
The one essential cable that every Nissan Leaf, Mitsubishi Outlander Phev, Nissan NV200 SE Van,Toyota Prius or Vauxhall Ampera needs to enable safe and secure charging from public charge points.
The Leaf, Outlander and most other Electric Cars use a standard Type 1 in car connector. The vast majority of public charge points offer a Type 2 connection. These include the charge points used at Waitrose, Sainsbury, ChargePoint.
This Type 1 – Type 2 Cable permits 16Amps of charge to flow into the vehicle.
Cable is 5m long and available in Black. (We used to offer an Orange cable – however most cables end up on the ground between the car and charging point and soon get dirty. Orange cables show the grime far more than black cables, so we now only offer this type of coiled cable in Black)
