Top 5 FAQs
Should I choose a Universal or Tethered charger?
It depends on your preference:
- Convenience - Tethered chargers have a cable already attached which will either be Type 1 or Type 2.
- Flexibility - While you need to plug the cable into a universal charger, you can use both Type 1 and Type 2 cables.
Cable length - A tethered charger’s cable will be either 4.8m (Type 1) or 7.5m (Type 2) in length, whereas a universal charging cable can be up to 10m for either connector type.
Cost - Tethered chargers cost more upfront because they include the charging cable, whereas you can buy a universal charger without a cable.
Can I connect my Solo to a 3-pin plug socket?
It can’t be connected to a 3-pin plug socket; the Solo 3 needs to be connected to the main electrical supply.
What happens if my installation is non-standard?
Non-standard charger installations may incur an additional cost. Once your order is placed, we'll be in touch to better understand your requirements and produce a no-obligation quote for any additional works. If you decide not to proceed, you’ll receive a full refund.
