Hi all,

I've just ordered a Land Rover Range Rover Evoque p300e phev through work.

Could anyone recommend a 10m granny lead? I'm not sure of the length of the one that will come with the car but I don't think it will be sufficient.

Many thanks

Many thanks and it's a good price too. It's currently out of stock but i imagine I've got a few months until the car turns up

Did you test drive it? What is it like to drive?
No I've not had a test drive, I've just taken a gamble on it. Land Rover have had to retest emmisons so I think it's delayed the release.

I had a test Volvo XC60 recharge which was a nice drive, very powerful. The prestige of land rover won though.

Third Rock Energy have advertised on here. They have 10m granny, type 2 for £200. They supply most EV cable needs.

As far as I'm aware Jaguar land rover charge for cables but I'm getting a public cable via the lease company

I've just bought the same lead from Argos (more expensive than Screwfix sadly). It seems good quality, comes with an inbuilt display showing volts/amps and total kwh drawn while charging too.

evconnectors.com may only do 8m max now, but their charger is good. The 13A plug version can be set to 6,8,10,13,16A ! They do a commando-socket version which is where the 16A is safe to use, they now have their own custom male<->female plug&socket inline in the 13A end so you can swap whatever connector you want. But note that mine lasted 5 years then blew up big-time internally; I'd been using 13A a bit, should have been safe forever, but these things have zero ventilation, so the pcbs get quite a lot of thermal stressing they will wear out. Prob a good idea to get these opened up after 3 years heavy use, and get all the heavy-duty solder joints resoldered to prevent metal fatigue. On mine the relay inside acting as Contactor wore out after 4 years, but I was able to unsolder that & put a new one in for that final year of its life!
