Ouch! Didn't realise its 12A. Have you measured that yourself ?Hi there,
Just to add - i've had one of these cars, it is i-mievs from 09/10 that were "pre-evse", i.e. do not communicate on the pilot wire and just expect 240v applied to the charger. Your best bet is the "twizy adapter" mentioned above which will allow reliable charging at any type 2 post.
These cars charge at a fixed 12A, ie ~2.9kw so charging on an extension lead is particularly difficult with these early models. Also advisable to plug the car in BEFORE switching on the power because otherwise the pins on the type 1 adapter that goes into the car are live at mains voltage !!
In that case a Twizzy adaptor might struggle due to the 3 pin plug not really being designed for a continuous 12A over long periods of time that it takes to charge. So a custom cable that cuts out the additional 3 pin plug might be best... Hmm..
