"We try our best to contribute to the local community. MG plans to partner 300 to 1000 hotels to introduce 1000 to 3000 charging stations in the next three years in Australia ... We will make these chargers for everyone to use, not just MG customers."
What do I need?
1. Type 2 Charging Cable or the Type 2 Stretcher. Some call them the Mennekes IEC 62196 (which won't come standard with your EV). These cables enable new EV drivers to charge on AC Type 2 Charging Stations that range from 7Kwh to 22Kwh charging speeds. A Type 2 Charging Cable is the most important tool for owning an EV and you'll need it to charge at most charging locations around Australia.
2. A Type 2 Portable Charger also known as a Portable EV Charger, which most EVs come standard with. Drivers don't realise, they'll need more than just one. The reason is you'll need one to leave at home and another for emergencies on the road. It enables new generation EVs sold in Australia Portable Charging on standard 240V outlets found almost anywhere 25+ million we estimate.
3. The Type 1 to Type 2 Adapter, also known as SAE J1772 to IEC 62196. It allows the use of older Type 1 Charging Stations for newer Type 2 EVs. This is one of the best ways to avoid a long EV Charging Queue for a free Type 2EV Charging Station.
