It depends where you are based, but cars using Type 1 "chargers" are getting less common in Europe - the main cars were Mk1 Leafs and our PHEV. So you can often pick up a secondhand type 1 to type 2 cable quite cheaply. The PHEV only ever takes a maximum of 16A, so you can save a small amount by getting a 16A cable. But a 32A cable is barely more expensive and thicker - it's more robust but less easy to coil up for storage.

You may have speed, but I have momentum...
