Electric Vehicle Charging Cable 16Amp Type 1 – Type 2


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)

Type 1 to Type 2 – More details:

Or as some EV people call these – SAE J1772 (Type 1) to Mennekes / IEC 62196 (Type 2) Cable.

Type 2also called Mennekes is the form factor used on most public change points through the UK and Europe.

Type 1  is the cable connector fitted to most European, Japanese and American Electric Cars including the best selling Nissan Leaf and Van, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Renault, Zoe, Fluence and Kangoo, Toyota Prius Plug-in, Vauxhall Ampera.

Tesla and the German manufactures including BMW i3, i8, VW e-Golf, Audi A3 e-Tron, Porsche Panamera PHEV use a different system and need a Type 2 Female to Type 2 male cable.

Our cables are 5 M in length and available in Black. They are rated for 16 Amps of current, the standard charge facility on most electric cars including the Nissan Leaf.

    Thanks for the cable. This is perfect for our 2015 Leaf. Used the cable at numerous charge point in London.

    Just what I ordered. Nice that the cable is compact and lightweight so we keep it in the boot and allows us to top up at our local Sainsburys.
