Overall a great experience. It's great to have a company where you can talk to people who know what they are doing. They were extremely professional. From initial office staff through to the engineer doing the installation. I would strongly recommend them.

EV connector types

What are the different EV connector types?

There are many different types of EV connector types, here are the most common:

Type 1 

Type 1 EV chargers have a circular five-pin design that can't lock, and are the most common variation used in Asian, Japanese and American markets. 

Type 2

Type 2 EV chargers have a seven pin layout, and can lock your EV cable in place. The majority of new EVs use a Type 2 connection. 


CHAdeMO is a type of EV connector that offers a quick charge and is popular at rapid charging stations. It can reach ranges of 400kW and is the creation of, and favoured by, Japanese carmakers.  

CCS Charging Socket

Combined charging system, a type of rapid-charging connector used across Europe and North America. 

UK 3 pin

It is possible to charge your EV using a 3 pin plug if you’re caught short, although this is slower and often more expensive than using a dedicated charging point.
