- High Quality- epoxy filled plug and fireproof cable
- The gold standard among charging cables- robust and solid- built to last for many years to come.
Mennekes® is the German company that developed and designed what we call the ¨type 2¨ plug/ contact which is used in newer electric vehicles. The charging cable is manufactured in Germany and is of very high quality. It fits all electric cars and plug-in hybrids (PHEV) that have a type 2 charging inlet (eg Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Volkswagen, etc.).
The charging cable is supplied with a rubber cap on the type 2 charging plug. It is connected to the car to protect it from dirt, water and dust while not in use and stored.
Robust and Flexible Cable
Mennekes® has the market's most flexible and mechanically durable cable. It contains internal cable routing cushions, filling the negative space within the cable- which protects the conductors when the cable is being bent or twisted. The optimal insulation thickness and rubber compound provides exceptionally long durability, increased safety and maximum flexibility.
Quality at All Levels
The charging station is manufactured in Germany and follows strict quality control.
Fully Cast Type 2 Plug
The fully molded plugs are filled with epoxy creating a solid mass that fills the entire plug, thus spreading heat evenly. This avoids overheating of the charging contact. It also seals and protects the conductors, making it waterproof. The rubber handle provides a better grip while in use.
Mennekes' charging cable fits all electric cars and plug-in hybrids with a type 1 charging inlet(e.g. Nissan LEAF before 2018, Kia Soul Ev and Outlander PHEV) and fits charging stations with a type 2 outlet/connector. The charging cable is secured against theft and supports both auto lock. The charging cable will also lock on the charging station during charging and cannot be detached by unauthorized persons. The charging cable has a unique rubber compound that has been tested in various climates and remains soft and easy to handle even in sub-zero temperatures. At the same time it is robust and can withstand being run over.
Suitable for e.g. electric cars and plug-in hybrids (PHEV) such as:
- Citroen Berlingo EV
- Citroen C-Zero
- Ford Focus Electric
- Kia Soul EV / Electric
- Nissan LEAF
- Nissan e-NV200
- Mitsubishi I-Miev
- Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
- Opel Ampera
- Peugoet Ion
- Peugeot Partner Electric
- Renault Fluence
- Renault Kangoo ZE
- Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid

Questions and Answers
Do I need a type 2 to type 1 cable?
The need depends on your usage pattern and whether you live around places that have installed charging points with a type 2 outlet. There are beginning to be more of these in Oslo because it provides increased security. At the same time, there is a lot of wear and tear, increased maintenance and more use of the schuko contact. Thus it is only a matter of time before the majority of charging points in the capital consist of type 2 connectors. If you have both this cable and mode 2 charging cable (e.g. the supplied charging cable) in the car, you can charge your car in most places.
How do I use the type 2 to type 2 charging cable?
The video for the Oslo City Environment Agency shows how to use these new charging stations.
Which amperage of the charging cable should I choose? 32A or 16A?
Generally speaking, we would recommend a 32A charging cable, as this is more future-oriented if you should change your electric car or plug-in hybrid at a later time.
Will a 32A charging cable work with 16A charging stations and cars with a maximum 16A charger in the car?
Yes, it is backwards compatible and a 32A charging cable will work with 16A charging stations. Cars with maximum 16A on-board charger will also work with a 32A charging cable, but will only charge with maximum 16A.
