The use of electric vehicles has increased over the years, leading to changes in the operation of electric vehicle chargers. Due to its extensive use, most people require cables that are capable of charging the vehicle at a faster rate. This requirement has led the global market for charging cables for electric vehicles to grow rapidly.

Whether you want to charge your electric vehicle at home, at work, or at a public terminal, one choice is critical: the plug in the charging station must match the plug in your car.  More precisely, the electric charging cables that depend on the charging station of your vehicle must have the correct plug for the two to return. That makes sense, doesn't it? There are four types of outlets, two for alternating current (AC) that allow charging up to 43 kW and two for direct current (DC) that allow fast charging up to 350 kW.


Let's start with AC. There are two types of AC outlets:

  • Type 1 charging cable is a single-phase outlet and is standard for American and Asian electric vehicles. It allows you to charge your car at a speed of up to 7.4 kW, depending on the charging power of your car and the capacity of the network.

  • Type 2 outputs are 3-phase outputs because they have three additional wires to pass current. So naturally they can charge your car faster. At home, the highest charging power rate of Type 2 car charging cable is 22kW, while public charging stations can have a charging power of up to 43 kW, always depending on the charging power of your car and the capacity of the network charging sockets for electric cars.

There are two types of outlets for DC charging:

  • CHAdeMO: This fast charging system was developed in Japan and allows very high charging capacities as well as bi-directional charging. Currently, Asian manufacturers are leading the way by offering compatible electric cars at a CHAdeMO price.  It allows charger up to 100 kW.


  • CCS - The CCS socket is an improved version of the Type 2 socket, with two additional power contacts for fast charging. Supports AC and DC charging. It allows charging at a speed of up to 350 kW.
