Fast 3 Phases, 3 times the power. Change your EV at 11kW or 22kW (3 hours or 1.5 hours respectively for a 30kw Battery).
Strong Impact resistant from a 1 meter drop onto concrete. Dust and splash-resistant with an IP Rating* of 54 when mated.
Comfortable The contoured grip fits in your palm comfortably allowing for easy insertion and removal of the plugs.
Compatible Suitable for all Type 2, 3 phase compatible vehicles including the Renault Zoe, BMW i3, Tesla, and Audi e-tron. 32A cables are backward compatible to 16A supplies.
This is a three-phase cable. See our single-phase cables here.
All Our Cables Come with an industry-leading 2 year warranty and a free bag.
* What is IP54 Rating?
The IP54 (Ingress Protection Rating) means our cables will operate in dusty conditions, and will resist splashes of water while mated. However, the charging process is not fully water sealed and the cables should not be submerged in water or operated in the rain.

Charging Cable Safety
- The cable should be kept out of puddles but can be kept outside.
- Please remember to use the rubber cover to keep moisture from the connector when not in use. The vehicle will not charge if it senses moisture.
- Moisture is the most common issue experienced and will lead to corrosion of the pins which are not covered by our warranty.
Why can’t we charge in the rain?
Water can still get into the plug and charging socket during the inserting and removing of the plug from the car. In fact, as soon as you open the charge port or unplug your car, the rain will get onto the pins and stay there until the next time you charge.
QUESTION 1: WHAT WILL YOU BE USING IT FOR?
Are you planning to use it for charging from
a) your domestic socket
b) a home EV charge point or
c) public charge points?
The answer may be a combination but for A you’ll need to be aware that in this case, you’ll actually need what’s known as a portable charger.
If that’s what you’re after, just take a look at our portable EV chargers.
But let’s assume it’s for B or C or a combination of both.
QUESTION 2: WHAT TYPE OF CONNECTOR DOES YOUR CAR USE?
Different electric vehicles use different connectors; type 1, type 2, type 3C (which is the standard used throughout Italy and France).
You can find out what type your car uses, by selecting it on our site here.
Most public charge points use a type 2 connector so you’ll likely want and type 2 to whatever your car connector is.
Type 1 (Shop)
Type 2 (Shop)
Type 1 plugs are single-phase and allow for fast charging at a power output level of 3.7kW-7.4kW AC and a range per hour of approximately 12.5-25 miles. The design features 5-pins. This plug is mostly used with car models found in parts of Asia, and less so in Europe. It may be difficult to find Type 1 chargers and charging stations in the UK.
This is a 7-pin plug design that is the standard for the European market. It offers fast charging capability with a power output level of 3.7kW-7kW AC. This provides an approximate range per hour of charging of 12.5-25 miles. One exception to this standard is Tesla Superchargers. They provide DC on Type 2 connectors. The output level is 130kW with a range per hour of 180 miles.
QUESTION 3: WHAT CURRENT AND PHASES DO YOUR CAR SUPPORT?
There are two additional factors outside of the connector type:
Standard power output levels of regular public charging stations are 3.6kW and 7.4kW which will correspond to the 16 Amp or 32 Amp supply. But you’ll also need to know what your car supports, because for instance, an electric vehicle whose onboard charger has the capacity of 3.6kW, will only accept current up to 16 Amp and even if a 32 Amp charging cable is used and plugged into a 7.4kW charging point, the charging rate won’t be increased; neither it will reduce the charging time.
2. Phases: Single or 3 Phase
Phases are simply the number of power lines that run within the cable. More phases equal faster charging, but only if your car and the charge point support it. You also have to keep in mind that 3 phase cables are thicker and heavier than single-phase to carry around.
Again you can get the answers to these questions for your specific car, by searching here.
Armed with this information you’ll easily be able to choose the cable that suits your needs.
Coocar offer both cables from stock (same day dispatch before 11am, next working day after) or made-to-order cables if you can’t find what you’re looking for from stock (3 – 6 days dispatch).
