These cables allow you to charge your vehicle from a domestic 3-pin UK plug socket. This is beneficial as every property in the UK has one of these, meaning that you will be able to charge your vehicle wherever you go.
Single Phase Conversion Cable
These connections are very common in residential areas and these connections are typically used for all home-based charging, when a dedicated home charging point is installed, as well as some public charging points.
Three Phase Coversion Cable
The car itself, as well as the charge point, must support Three Phase charging in order to enjoy the benefits of three phase charging. These connections are more common in commercial buildings and some public charging points.
16Amps or 32Amps
16amp supplies are most commonly used with home charging solutions. 16amp can support a maximum charging speed of 3.7kW in Single Phase mode and 11kW in Three Phase mode.
32amp supplies are more common with newer EV models and charge points found in public destinations and they can support fast charging in Single Phase mode. 32amp can support a maximum charging speed of 7.4kW in Single Phase mode and 22kW in Three Phase mode.
Can I use a 32amp cable with a car that only supports a 16amp supply, or vice versa?
Yes, the 32amp cable will work with a car that only supports 16amp, the maximum charging speed will just be that of your car when using a 16amp cable. Likewise, using a 16amp cable with a car with a 32amp supply will only be able to charge at the maximum supported speed of a 16amp cable.
