SMART CHARGING CABLES FOR A NORDIC CLIMATE

A charging box installed at home, where you spend the majority of your time, is of course ideal, but there are often situations which require an extra charging cable.

We recommend that you always have two different charging cables with you in the car. One for charging in charging stations and another for regular sockets. These two charging cables mean you can rely on compatibility with most charging stations available around the road network when you are driving longer distances. Charge Amp’s charging cable, Charge Amps Beam, is adapted to our changing and challenging Nordic climate.

FAQs


What is a charging cable?

A charging cable is a cable that plugs into your electric vehicle and charges it quickly and safely.

There are two different types of charging cables, the two standards used are:

Type 1 (SAE J1772 (IEC Type 1)
The Type 1 is primarily suitable for one of the most popular electric vehicles Mitsubishi Outlander PEHV. In addition, there are some older Japanese cars that use type 1 charging cables, before the standard was changed to the newer type 2.

Type 2 (62196-2 (IEC Type 2))
Type 2 is the most common charging cable and fits most electric vehicles in Europe today. The standard is used by both European and Japanese vehicle manufacturers as well as the increasingly popular electric car manufacturer, Tesla.
