This charging cable has the Mennekes IEC 62196-2 Type 2 female connector on end of the cable, and an open end at the other end. This cable can be used in tethered charging stations, specifically those used for Tesla vehicles.
This cable also has the Tesla Chargeport functionality, a seamlessly integrated waterproof button on the vehicle-side Type 2 connector, allowing you to
open the chargeport, start and stop charging your Tesla or unlock the cable, without the need to enter the car first, or look for the keyfob. This is a unique feature found only on EVChargeKing cables!
The cable release of course only works when the car's keyfob is around! The cable will not unlock when the car's keyfob is not in the vincinity (same as at the superchargers).
The cable has 3 x 6mm² conductors, allowing 32A current, which represents a charging capacity of 7.4 kW. The price difference with a weaker 16A cable is so small that we think you are better off with this top model. In case you switch to a bigger electric car or install a more performant charging infrastructure, you won't need to upgrade your cable.
It is of course perfectly possible to charge at 16A with this cable!
Attention: You cannot connect a blue or red commando plug to this pigtail and charge from a commando socket. It can only be used in combination with a charging station! This pigtail also is not a standard replacement for the cable used in the Tesla Wallchargers, it can be used for that purpose but you need to perform a few extra steps, see this forum post: Change Charging Cable of Tesla Wall Connector
Standard length of the cable is 2 meter, but you can order any length you like by selecting the appropriate value in the dropdown selector. For lengths not specified in the list, just
send us a message and we will quote you for your special request.
We don't use the typical Chinese cable, but a high quality European brand cable, that is 20% lighter and thinner while being more durable! The connectors have rustfree contacts. The electronics used are CE Approved
Don't forget to choose the right length when ordering. It is better to have 1 meter too long than 10cm too short! The length of the EV cable is measured
including the plugs (male/ female) on either end of the EV cable. When the charging point is on the other side of the car's chargeport, you really need a minimum of 4 meter to be safe.
Type 2 female on vehicle side, open end at the other side.
Single phase, 3 x 6mm² + 0.75mm², max electric power: 1 x 32A (7.4 kW charging capability)
