I Traveled 3 miles to a polar rapid in london shoreditch to be found iced aswell as a tesla driver waiting too, nothing could be done so i whipped out my cable from the boot of the zoe and connected the type 2 cable to the polar type machine cable and made like a 3 meter extension cord. I THINK it would have worked but this particular machine doesn't charge my zoe 80% i dont no why it just never charged or charged for 10 mins and then stops(charging impossible) but ALL other polar machines work fine 100%. check my video link to see, anyone tried this and it worked?

Nice try, but it won't work. Type 2 cables can not be extended as it would defeat the safety mechanisms. Which is just as well as your Q model could take 44kW, but your cable is only rated 22kW :rolleyes:
