BMW charging cables & charging points

BMW I3, I8, 740e, 225xe, 330e, 530e, BMW X5 xDrive40e

The BMW range of plug-in hybrid vehicles and the BMW I3 all electric 60Ah version all have a single phase type 2 charging system. These charging cables are available in any length desired and also with French type 3 plugs on the infrastructure side for use in France.

The BMW i3 94Ah had an optional 3-phase charging system, together with a DC charging option. So if your I3 94Ah has a CCS connection, it also has 3-phase charging (11kW).
The new 120Ah version has 3-phase charging and CCS as a standard option, so they all have 3-phase (11kW) charging For these models you need the 3-phase charging cables and charging stations! Charging times are drastically reduced, even with the bigger battery! The I3 with 11kW charging has 2 possible charging modes, single phase at 32A max or 3-phase at 3x16A max:

  • when connected to a 22kW 3-phase charging station: if using a 3-phase charging cable (3x16A or 3x32A), the car will charge at 3x16A (11kW)
  • when connected to a 22kW 3-phase charging station: if using a single phase charging cable (32A), the car will charge at 1x32A (7,4kW)
  • when connected to a single phase 32A charging station: if using a 3-phase charging cable (3x16A), the car will charge at 1x20A (4,6kW) - limited by the 2.5mm² cable section
  • when connected to a single phase 32A station: if using a 3-phase charging cable (3x32A), the car will charge at 1x32A (7,4kW)
  • when connected to a single phase 32A station: if using a single phase charging cable (32A), the car will charge at 1x32A (7,4kW)

This means that in most cases, a 3-phase 16A cable will do the job, only when connected to a single phase charging station, this cable will limit the charging power to 20A.Most public charging points are 3-phase...

The charging cables are built with a high quality European brand electric cable, which is 20% lighter then the usual Chinese import cable, and far more durable! All charging cables are hand assembled and tested in Belgium.

For fast charging at home, you can use our Single Phase charging point, a reliable and rugged charging point with all necessary safety features already built-in! Be sure to select the Type 2 plug for your BMW. For the I3 models with 11kW charging you can use the 11kW station if you have 3-phase available.
