What is a Type 2 charging cable? Mennekes Type 2 Explained

In this video, I explain how useful the Mennekes Type 2 EV charging cable that you get with your Tesla is.

If you have a Model 3 or Model Y, this cable will allow you to use AC charging stations and get up to 11kW.

It’s not as fast as DC charging but when you don’t have DC fast charging available, this is your quickest option to top up your battery.

I think pretty much every electric vehicle in the last few years has a Type 2 port and so it can use a Type 2 charging cable.

For more information, please watch the full video. Recharge Mennekes connector is possible at a Type 2 charger and they’ve been getting more and more common.
