what lenght do you think is the best for a type 2 cable? 3 or 5 meters?
5 meters for sure. It's not much more and will get you out of a bind quite often. You can't always park right next to the charging station; sometimes they are ICE'd. Many times you have to pull in forwards so the charge port is a long way from the station.
5 meters allows some extra "wiggle" room, good if you have to go around an. ICE car blocking the charger
none of them. the minimum is 7m to connect to a wallbox in fron of your car. the car alon is 5m.
i gave my 5m cable away for my 7m.
an extra 3m would be fine, if you back your car in.
Owners report that 10m or even 12m of cable are necessary for that use case.
What is this cable used for? Can you post a link to buy it? I am assuming I may need it as well.
the cable is for using at public type 2 chargers. At home i have the red three phase adapter that I will evaluate before deciding on any wallbox or similar at home... So the original question is for a type 2 cable for public charging stations like ikea etc.
Not sure type 2 is of any use in the US? its used a lot in Europe at public charging stations.
Sounds like 5 meters is the way to go for that need...
