Are all EV Chargers the same?

In a word – No. Not all EV chargers are the same and you need to know what kind of plug your car has or will come with. Currently in the UK there are 2 different types and these are either –


Type 2 Charger – The IEC 62196 Type 2 connector (often referred to as mennekes in reference to the company that originated the design) is used for charging electric cars, mainly within Europe. This is the most commonly used charger plug in the UK.

Chademo – CHAdeMO is the trade name of a fast-charging system for battery electric vehicles, developed starting in 2010 by the CHAdeMO Association, formed by the Tokyo Electric Power Company and five major Japanese automakers.[1] The name is an abbreviation of “CHArge de MOve” (which the organization translates as “charge for moving”) and is derived from the Japanese phrase “o CHA deMO ikaga desuka” (おちゃでもいかがですか), translating to English as “How about a cup of tea?”, referring to the time it would take to charge a car.[1]
