Are all electric car chargers the same?

There are several different car charging cables and they all operate differently. The charging cable you’ll need may vary from car to car, so it is important to check ahead of your journeys.

The types of chargers available include; Type 1, Type 2, Mode 2, Mode 3, CHAdeMO and Tesla Supercharger.

Type 1 and 2 are the most common chargers that you might use day to day, and these can vary from 3.7kWh and 7kWh.

Using a three-pin plug can often be the most popular choice for those looking to charge overnight. However, it is not always considered to be the most suitable method. Charging times will be slower because of their inability to produce a significant electric current.
