Portable plug-in chargers are designed for your convenience allowing you to charge your vehicle just about anywhere using any UK 3 pin domestic plug socket. They operate as a simple plug and play. This portable charger has variable settings meaning you can select any speed you want between 6A and 13A at the click of a button.

Why do I need to charge at different speeds?

We all pay peak and off-peak rates for our electricity; if you charge at a slower pace during peak times such as 6 Amps, you will pay less for your electricity. Variable chargers are also useful when charging at a caravan park or when using solar power as they allow you to drop the charge to a low setting.

* We are continually reviewing and evolving our EV charging solutions.  We are therefore pleased to confirm that this product was upgraded in September 2023, and as a result, the warranty has increased from 1 year to 2 years. This new product looks very different to the previous version. The images above showcase this new upgraded charger which now boasts an LCD screen, time-delay function, and a 2 year warranty for even greater peace of mind.

    Before purchasing... which connection Type does your car need?

    In Europe, Type 2 is the standard so most European cars will use Type 2 although watch out for older EU models that might be Type 1. Tesla also use Type 2. Japanese car brands were originally Type 1 but some of the newer models are now adopting Type 2.

    Please check which kind of connection your vehicle requires from the below options…

    Type 1 Vehicles – These vehicles will have 5 connection points plus one clip-in connection above.

    Type 2 Vehicles – These vehicles will have 7 connection points.

    As a final check, please see the close-up images of the connection on this listing which you can compare to your vehicle's charging socket.

    SAFETY INFORMATION

    Please ensure that your charger is plugged directly into a 3 pin socket and the socket is earthed and connected to your mains supply. Please do not use extension cables as this will void your product warranty. Please ensure the 3 pin plug is kept dry at all times and if using outdoors please use a waterproof socket.

    *Please note that the warranty on this product was upgraded from 1 year to 2 years on 01/09/2023

    Excellent quality charging cable

    Cable appears to be very sturdy and charging unit well sealed against water ingress. Carry case useful for keeping cable neatly stored.

    Good quality, fast delivery!

    Needed a 3pin charger due to an impromptu weekend away to a remote location. Arrived very quickly and worked straight out of box. Very pleased and would recommend to others!

    Does exactly what it says ...

    ... on the website.
    Easy to use and the time delay and charge rate agree with my car readout. Working perfectly so far.
    Note - there’s a lot of information on a small screen so it’s best plugged into a high level socket so you don’t have to bend down to read it. My dedicated 10amp EV socket is about two metres off the floor.

    New to the EV game

    Bought as a temp cable for home before my fixed charger was installed -worked a dream. It will now go into boot when we are away from home and staying with non EV friends.
