What is the optimal charging cable length?
If you use the charging cable in a place, such as your home or at work, choose the optimal length for your given situation. Usually it is 4 or 6 meters. If the cable is mainly used on the road or in different places (where another vehicle could be parked between the charging station and your vehicle), we recommend that you choose more length: 6 or 8 meters is a good choice in this case.
What is the weight of charging cables?
The weight of the charging cable can be calculated by adding half a kilo per meter and one kilo for the two connectors. An 8 meter charging cable weighs about 5 kilograms. The exact weight is displayed in the properties of each product.
How fast can this cable charge?
- An electric car can average 5.5 km drive on 1 kWh of stored energy in the battery.
- The maximum current for this charging cable is 32A with a maximum of 3 phases (400V). If this cable is connected to a charging point which can supply at least 3 phase 32A, this cable can supply about 22 kW continuous power.
- So, if the car is charging with the maximum 22kW, it means that it can charge 22 kWh (kilowatt hour) in one hours, which roughly corresponds to a range of 122 km (5.5 km x 22kWh).
- With this, the maximum charging speed of the cable is 122 km/hour (least connected to a charging point of at least 3 phase 32A).
Please note that the actual loading speed also depends on the charging speed of the car's AC built-in charger. Click here to see what AC charger your car has.
