Type 2 Mennekes Charging Cable 22kw for Electric Vehicles

Categorised as EV Accessories, EV Charging

Update 15 Dec 2023 – After 2yrs 3 months and 57,497kms, including several remote trips, I have found I use this cable regularly at many EV destination chargers in regional and rural towns. For example at Nhill and Rainbow in Victoria, the Linga chargers require you to bring your own Type 2 cable. In the Yarra Valley, at Healesville at the RACV Club, you need your own cable for their 3 Chargefox AC chargers. In western NSW at Euston the Vellocet EV destination chargers required your own cable. On the south coast the NSW Govt funded destination chargers at Moruya also need your own Type 2 EV cable. Intellihub are installing lots of AC chargers on power poles around the suburbs which I use and they need this cable.

Update 12-11-2021 – At home I park on the street, so after two months of driving, I have found I use this cable all the time. It makes it so easy to charge while you are out having a meal or going for a walk or shopping or working remotely at a library, university or park etc.

Places I have used this cable include the Exploren chargers at Pennant Hills and Ryde (Giffnock Ave), the EO chargers at Dee Why and Lane Cove (Little Street Car Park), the Chargefox Chargers at Macquarie Uni and the Chargefox chargers at St Ives and Dural. I find it really handy and was a good purchase.

I ordered a Type 2 cable online to use at non Tesla chargers. The Tesla Shop was out of stock at the time so I ordered mine from https://EVolutionAustralia.com.au and it arrived safely.  There are different strengths of cable, 7kw or 22 kw. For Tesla you need the 22 kw. It’s a Type 2 to Type 2 Mennekes Charging Cable 22kw 5m. They are expensive, but that’s because they have thick copper inside them and ruggedly insulated and built to last.

Here are the specs of the original German Mennekes cable https://www.mennekes.org/emobility/product-details/charging-cable-mode-3-type2-32a-3ph-75m-36247/

The Tesla online shop supplies the Mennekes Type 2 cable . They call it a MENNEKES Type 2 Adapter – 7.5m https://shop.tesla.com/en_au/product/mennekes-type-2-adapter—7_5m
