Type1, Yazaki, is developed in the USA. Type2, Mennekes, is the most common one outside the USA. On the European continent all public charging stations require a separate cable, in the UK and USA the cable is attached to the charger. For UK car owners who want to charge on the Continent a cable is needed. Private chargers can be of either type.

Here is a list of plugs for various car brands:

In the UK, "rapid" chargers, i.e. the 50kW DC chargers, have their own cable attached (actually, usually 2 or 3 cables, including one which is ChaDeMo). Practically all other types (usually 7kW or 22kW AC = "fast") have a Mennekes 'type 2' socket, so in order to charge our cars, which are type 1, we need a 'type 2 to type 1' cable....

Public DC chargers are ALWAYS tethered. Also on the continent.

I know, anko, I was just being a pedant when replying to jaap who said "On the European continent all public charging stations require a separate cable"...;-)

I'm afraid this is 99% wrong. I have only seen 1 charger with an attached cable. Every other one has required an appropriate cable to charge via AC. Of course DC Chademo chargers have their own cable tethered.

All of the charging stations here in BC, Canada, have either a type 1 plug attached (is that what you mean by tethered?) or both type 1 and Chademo. I've never seen a station that would require you to have your own cable.


Same here in California. The type I plug charging stations are free of charge at the train stations & airports. They charge you an arm & leg at the shopping center or somewhere else.
