Portable plug-in chargers are designed for your convenience. This charger has a 16A CEE commando plug and needs to be connected to a 16A CEE socket.
This portable charger has variable settings meaning you can select any speed you want between 8A and 16A 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 8 Amps, you will pay less for your electricity.
Our portable chargers are of the highest quality and meet all safety standards and therefore come with a 1 year warranty for your peace of mind.
Before purchasing... which connection Type does your car need?
Type 1 charging ports are typically found on EV brands from the US, Japan and parts of Asia. But remember, not all cars from these regions use Type 1. Tesla is an American brand that uses Type 2, and some newer Japanese models are now also adopting Type 2 (eg: Nissan Leaf was a Type 1 2012-17 but from 2018+ it switched to a Type 2).
In Europe, Type 2 is the standard so most European cars will use Type 2 but watch out for older EU models that could be Type 1 such as the Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-Zero amongst others.
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.
Please ensure that your 16A socket is installed by a qualified electrician. The socket must be installed on a system with a PME detection device. If you already have a 16A socket installed, please have a qualified electrician check that the socket is installed on a system with a PME device before use.
The maximum ac charge our leaf will accept is 3.3kw. we can get this from this cable which cost at lot less than having a 7kw charger installed. This gives us 13.2kw in our four hour cheap electricity charging window as opposed to 8, giving roughly 50 miles range rather than 30 in a charge.
