Type 2 (Mennekes) to Type 1 (J1772) – 5m Cable


Type 2 (Mennekes) to Type 1 (J1772) Charging Cable 7kw (5m)

An essential cable for every Type 1/J1772  vehicle (see additional information for compatibility list) to enable safe and secure charging from public ‘Universal’ charge points.



Mitsubishi, Nissan, Mercedes, some BMWs and many other electric cars use the Type 1/ J1772 connector.  However, there is a trend for public charge points to be universal and offer no charging cable at all. The reasons for this are many and varied but mostly revolve around reduced maintenance and liability.

Reviews from around the web

“What brilliant service from EVolution – I emailed off the EVolution website with some questions about the Type 2-2 charging cable and Russell personally responded promptly every time with detailed advice and information. I was able to make the purchase confidently from New Zealand without a worry and the cable has arrived already in just a few days. The local NZ online retailer still hasn’t replied to my email about the quality and features of their cable… after a month of waiting!”
