What do I need this adapter for?
In the event that you want to charge at a charging point with a fixed cable with a type 1 plug, you cannot normally use this with a type 2 car. With this adapter you can convert the type 1 plug of fixed cable on the charging point side to a type 2 plug. With this you can still load your type 2 vehicle.
How fast can this adapter charge?
Because the type 1 plug side can charge a maximum of 1 phase 32 Ampere, the entire adapter speed is also a maximum of 1 phase 32A. This amounts to approximately 7.4 kW continuous power. An electric car can drive an average of 5.5 km on one kWh of energy stored in the battery. So if the car is charging with 7.4kW, this means that it can charge 7.4 kWh (kilo Watt hour) in one hour, which is approximately 40 km of energy for the car. We call this maximum loading speed of 40 km / hour. Please note that the actual charging speed also depends on the supporting charging speed of the car's built-in charger.
