Hi. Does anyone know if a tethered cable on a DC charger is a regulatory requirement (anywhere) ?
I don't know if tethered is a requirement, but the thickness of the cable necessary will make it difficult to run un-tethered. If you're thinking of lower currents there is a physical limit to how low the current can be and still deliver a charge.

Tetehered DC at useful power levels isn't very practical, e.g. I would expect tethered cables to have temperature sensing in the plug. Higher powered ones have liquid cooling inside the cable.
Does a cable-mounted female DC connector even exist?
