EV portable charging cables with control boxes come in handy in situations where you need to charge your EV but you don’t have access to a charging station. This is called Mode 2 EV charging and is accomplished by using this type of cable to charge through a domestic socket. There is nothing more satisfying, when owning an electric vehicle than being able to charge it whenever you need it.

Types of cables with Control Box
There are many types of portable cables to choose the best for your electric vehicle. The Type 1 SAE J1772 and the Type 2 IEC 62196 portable chargers come with a variety of different plugs like Schuko (European plug), UK 3-pin plug, or CEE. You can also find American NEMA plugs on our USA website.
Schuko connector plugs are usually used on sockets with 230V for currents up to 16A. With that said, when you are using a Schuko cable you can charge your electric vehicle with up to 3.6kW. In other words, an EV will charge on average 15-20 km per hour.
The UK 3-pin connector plugs are common in Great Britain, Ireland, Cyprus, Malta, Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Our UK 3-pin portable cables come in different lengths and with fixed 10A as standard.
The CEE is an industrial standard electrical connector that enables the safe connection to 3-phase power. The 3-pin blue plug can provide a single-phase 32A up to 7.2kW power while the 5-pin red plug provides triple-phase 32A up to 22kW power.
