Has anyone noticed on the Vauxhall web site what they say about their type 2 charging cable... I quote:

Recharge your ampera Ampera from any public charging station with this charging set.
http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/vehicles/vauxhall-range/cars/ampera/accessories.html

Apart from the word "Ampera" being there twice it says it can be used at ANY public charging station... really? In fact, it can ONLY be used at type 2 charging stations.

I accept that the EU standard is moving towards type 2 but even so it could never be used at 13A/16A/32A socket charging stations of which there are many right now and at the moment possibly the majority. Neither can it be used at any DC charging station nor at a Tesla charging station.

I think Vauxhall should change that wording because it is highly misleading and if someone not familiar with EV charging were to take it at face value they would imagine that this cable allows them to charge anywhere.

I thought the ZCW price was plus VAT or has it come down?
