|Type 1 cable||Type 2 cable|
You can see that the cable type 1 has 5 connectors. It is easily differentiable with a type 2 cable which has 7 connectors .
For vehicles equipped with a type 2 plug, you will often find it paired with a CCS combo plug. The CCS combo socket allows rapid recharging (over 22kw). They are usually found on public charging stations or on highways.
Likewise for the vehicle equipped with type 1 plug, you will find Chademo plugs for quick recharging.

There are 4 main variations for charging cables.
Depending on your single-phase or three-phase electrical installation and your vehicle's on-board charger, you must choose the corresponding cable.
|Single phase 16A||Single phase 32A||Three phase 16A||Three phase 32A|
|Battery capacity||Charging point power 3,7kW||Charging point power 7,4kW||Charging point power 22 kW|
To have a charging power of 22 kW , the three-phase 32A cable is essential.
For a 7.4 kW charging station, a single-phase 32A cable will be sufficient.
To choose the right cable for your E-car, you must check the charging power of your vehicle accepted by its type 1 or type 2 socket, this is often equivalent to: 3.7kW, 7.4kW, 11kW or 22kW.
Be careful not to confuse the rapid charging power of your vehicle which is only compatible with a CCS combo or Chademo socket, only available with charging stations. fast recharges. The recharging powers are then generally above 50kW .
If your vehicle is single phase , we recommend a single phase cable .
If your vehicle is three-phase , a three-phase cable will be necessary to obtain the maximum power of 22Kw.
The single phase cables have the advantage of being more flexible , as well as having a weight twice as light than the three-phase cables.
|4m cable||7m cable|
Let’s discuss together the choice of cable length . This choice will of course be determined by the distance between the plug of the charging station and that of your vehicle . The length may vary depending on how you park your vehicle.
A length of 4m is usually sufficient if you always park with the charging socket of your vehicle closest to the terminal. On the other hand, if you want to keep the freedom to park in forward or reverse gear , we recommend a length of 7m . Of course these examples depend on the length of your vehicle.
