Car dealers and car owners trust our business, and know that we didn't just pop up when the rebate was announced. Selling electric vehicle charging products looks like an easy thing to do. We have seen an increase in the number of copycat businesses. Look out for sellers offering cheap products from a residential address hoping to copy established businesses and cash in on a growing industry. Buyer beware!

IS MY EV/PHEV A TYPE 1 OR TYPE 2?
If you don't know which Type EV/PHEV you have then compare your car's charging port to the picture below. If your charging port is the shape of a 'D' lying on its side then your car is a Type 2. If you are unsure then get in touch Monday - Friday Phone 03 365 2666 freephone (0508 6362 8346)
This charging port is a CCS Combo Type 2. It will accept a normal AC Type 2 cable and the two additional (DC) contacts allow high-power DC fast charging from a public tethered cable. The car is still a Type 2.
TERMINOLOGY - DO I NEED A TYPE 1 OR TYPE 2 CABLE?
Many people get confused about product names and what to buy.
