The origin of the type 3 charging cable
The type 3 charging cable comes from France and Italy, where it was developed to ensure optimum safety when using the charging cable. The charging cable has a cover that protects the inputs. The idea is that no objects reaches the electrical contacts.
However, it has been found that the charging cable is therefore less easy to use, as you will need to lift the cover first before you can insert the charging cable.
Typ 3 charging cables in Europe
In the meantime, it was found that there is a better solution for the type 3 charging cable with the slider. A so-called Mennekes plug was developed, which guarantees security at the same level and is easy to use.
As a result, the type 3 charging cable stayed only in France and Italy and was not used in other European countries. The Mennekes charging cable became the standard. However, a Mennekes cable is a type 2 charging cable, so it is not suitable for electric cars from France and Italy with a type 3 connector.
