Re: Which cable?

You'll need a type 2 to type 1 cable - loads around if you use a search engine. You only need a 16A cable as the PHEV can't charge any faster. But a 32A cable is only a few quid more, thicker so more robust, but harder to coil up. You may find one secondhand, but the main users are Mk1 LEAFs and PHE...

Re: Granny cable plug check

The heating in the plug is caused by resistance. If the connections were perfect, it would generate heat only from the internal wiring. If the connections are terrible, it would generate loads of heat at the joints and would melt/catch fire. I want to move mine closer to the former as it feels too c...
