ROLINE Type2 charging cable for electric and hybrid cars

Electromobility is on the rise worldwide, and at the latest when you decide to buy an electric car, you need to know what kind of charging cable you need.

Whether you want to charge your electric car at home, at work or at one of the public stations: The socket of the charging station must match the corresponding plug of the cable just as the socket of your car matches the other plug.


1-/3-phase, alternating current with 250/480 V, up to 22 kW

Public charging stations - these are the ones you usually find at the side of the road or in city car parks - usually offer alternating current (AC) connection. This requires a charging cable - usually with Mode 3 - with a Type 2 plug. The charging capacity of these charging stations is limited to 22 kW, although some e-cars often only use 11 kW of this. Most often, you will charge your car at a wallbox at home or at your employer's, and there at a wallbox. The type 2 plug on a mode 3 charging cable is also common for this.

The type 2 plug is standard in the EU and provides a connection for three current conductors (phases). This allows a maximum charging capacity of 22 kW (400 V, 32 A) at the wallbox. The corresponding Mode 3 charging cables are available in different lengths, as smooth or spiral cables. The cables are available in single-phase and three-phase versions and for currents of 16 or 32 amperes. Unfortunately, the higher the possible amperage, the heavier the charging cable. You can see the charging capacity here:

  • 1-phase, 16 A: 3.7 kW
  • 1-phase, 32 A: 7.4 kW
  • 3-phase, 16 A: 11 kW
  • 3-phase, 32 A: 22 kW
