The maximum output of a UK socket is 10amp. This means that if you choose to use a Type 2 to 3 Pin Charging Cable, you will receive a charging speed of 2.3kw. Understandably this is not ideal if you are charging a 100% electric car, as it will take much longer to charge. However, there are many advantages of buying a Type 2 to 3 Pin Charging Cable. This includes allowing you to charge your EV or hybrid without having access to an EV charging station. Making a 3 Pin Charging Cable a perfect choice if you are looking for a backup charging solution. You can keep it in your boot or at work, simply plug it into the 3 pin socket and into your car, and your good to go.
