Hi all,

I bow to the knowledge of you all again as you've been so helpful in the past. As you may know I have a 2010 Mitsubishi I-Miev with a Type 1 domestic 3-pin cable for general charging and after much stress I have finally gotten that working for me okay. However I do not have a Type 2 fast charging cable and I think I might want to invest in one. Could anyone recommend where I may get a reliable cable and hopefully also send me a pic of one in use so I could see it in action? Also let me know if you have experienced any problems with these personally. Apologies if I sound clueless again, but admitedly that is why I'm here. ;)

Thanks in advance for any help.

I think there were some suggestions made in your first thread, weren't there? Have you read all the way through?

Is this a different car? Does the home charge cable for this car have an electronics "brick" in the cable or is it just a cable with a connector at each end?

Thanks.

Is that type 2 cable to be plugged into public stations?
You mention you have a granny cable with type 1 plug.
Assuming you are after a type 1 to type 2 cable for use in public stations you just need to google (or duckduckgo) for EV type 1 cable and you will find tonnes of it.

His last car was pre-evse, i.e. it couldnt do public type 2 charging, only public Chademo
Cheers

If you've not adapted your car to use an EVSE, you can't plug into one. Your only options would be your 3-pin plug cable and public rapid charge points, using the big CHAdeMO socket (no need to buy a cable, because they're all tethered to the charge points).

Anyone trying to be helpful should read Gary's post. This 2010 car does adhere to any charging protocols, it just plugs in live like s lawnmower or a Twist. Last time this was discussed we suggest getting a Twizy adaptor to allow for public charging.

I should clarify and say that I got myself an adapter from Symphony and mine works a treat. It works on lamposts (ubitricity) and also tricks the type 2 port on Source London chargers into working as well. I recommended the same to a friend of a friend but they complained that it didn't work for them. I wasn't sure if I was using the correct terminology with my questions/solutions. They have a japanese import, but as far as I'm aware the spec is the same as mine, or so I was told.
