The elusive “type 2” charging cable for Fast Charging has been found!

This means We (myself included) would be able to use the 7kw (32A) charging stations to charge my EV twice as fast.

instead of the usual 3.5kw (10miles of charge/hour) this can be charged at 7kw delivering0 miles per hour of charging.

Good Stuff!
