Bout a type 1 to type 2 EV charge cable from the MiDA EVSE store on AliExpress.
£74. A bargain in the January sale, or so I thought.
Item arrived 2 weeks later, but only 80cm, not the 135cm that I had ordered.
I challenged Michael at the mida evse store about the short cable and his answer was that the spec had been changed and they had forgotten to change it on AliExpress even though the same cable is still advertised on AliExpress at 135cm and 99 available.
I explained to Michael that the reason I ordered 135cm cable was because I need 135cm cable to reach the awkward public charge point that is nearest my house and the 80cm cable he sent me was no good because it would mean I would have to stretch it over the bonnet of the car and I did not want to scratch my car hence the reason I ordered the 135cm cable.
After being offered a $20 refund from Michael which I refused I then tried AliExpress under their buyer protection scheme.
AliExpress offered a £29 refund or for a full refund I would have to send the cable that was sent out deliberately as a smaller cable back to the MiDAS to learn in China at a cost of £103 through DPD.
Needless to say that was a non-starter as it was more than the cable cost and so was not going to happen, so even though no fault of my own I was landed with a cable which was too short to use.
the refund policy of punishing the buyer not the supplier meant I would have to pay for their mistake in order to get a full refund.
