Mobile charging silly question?

probably a daft question but can we charge from an “ordinary” Type 2 charger like Polar and Ecotricity. NOT the CCS connector but usual Type 2?
Thanks

So I can’t use the tethered cable attached to the Polar charger? Sorry to be so naive!
Yes you can use the tethered cable. Or your own into an untethered.

just be aware it’s considered bad form if you slow charge on a rapid where you could be charging faster.

For example, charging on type 2 cable on a rapid because it gives you a few more hours before you need to disconnect is very frowned upon. Always uses the fastest you can.
