Type 2 charge leads

Post by antiscab » Wed, 11 Jul 2018, 13:11

Hi guys,

The latest generation of EVs are being shipped without home charge cables. For those not in the know, these allowed you to charge the car from any normal power point.

If you're willing to roll your own, I'd recommend getting one of these

Still need to put an Australian plug on it, and around 6 weeks shipping time.

Oops, I take it back. Turns out China has their own standard which uses connectors that look the same as the type 2 mennekes units.
