    My Smart ED was supplied with a Mercedes 22kW charging cable yet the Smart does not have the optional 22kW charger fitted. Accordingly would like to swap my well overspecified (and more expensive) cable for a more modest but longer alternative, ideally 10M or even 15M.

    Located South Oxfordshire.

    TIA - GeoffT.

    Hi Geoff,
    I have a Tesla MS arriving next week and looking for a type s- type 2 cable, if you can't or haven't found a swap I am looking to buy such a cable for my home charger.
    Thought I would ask as you may wish to sell then buy your other cable?

    That certainly sounds good to me. Let me check the length of my 22kW cable and I'll look into relative prices.

    Thankyou Geoff, my spelling mistake above, I meant a Female Type 2 - Male Type 2 for the MS, due in this Thursday (my home Chargemaster is 32a single phase unit)

    That cable is only single phase. "5P+N" is 3 phase.

    So it's not a 22kW cable only 7kW

    Thanks Jack, ironically that is exactly what I need, 7kW and 32a single phase :)
