If you are living in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, or Brisbane then you might have noticed a different kind of electric vehicle charger point being installed at shopping centres, workplaces, and car parking. These EV charging stations do not have a tethered cable like the earlier EV charging stations had. Rather, you need to bring your electric vehicle cable that is specific for your EV model for charging.

Benefits of the new EV charging stations

Several benefits support this new kind of EV charging station:

  • There is less wear and tear with the tethered cable
  • There is a universal EV charging point for all kinds of electric vehicles
  • The option for three-phase 22 kW electric vehicle charging.

EV adaptor cables    

These are used for EVs that use a Type 2 inlet but wish to use EV charging stations with a tethered Type 1 cable.

The type of charging cable needed depends on the EV you drive. Once you see the charging port, you will understand which EV cable you need. The other end will be the same which will have a type 2 plug that connects to the socket of the EV charging station.
