Use A 380-415V 32A Commando Socket To Charge All Models Of The Audi A3 e-tron.
This 3 Phase 32A Commando charger is compatible with the Audi A3. The charger can deliver up to 22kW of current, but it will only provide the maximum current that the Onboard charger of the Audi A3 will allow.
A 3 Phase 32A Commando socket is also required to use this charger. The Commando socket is also known as the CEE socket and industrial socket.
The available current settings for this charger are 10A, 16A, 26A and 32A. If you require a 32A 3 Phase charger for use with a PV system (solar panels) at 6A or 8A, read on for information regarding our multi-adapter charger.
Is This 32A 3 Phase Commando Charger Suitable For The Audi A3?
Choosing The Right Charger
The 32A Commando plug will be compatible with your Commando socket if it is 3 Phase 32A, so please check that your socket has 5 pins and states “32A” or “32” on the socket. If your socket is 3 Phase 16A, you will need the 3 Phase 16A CEE charger.
For EV charging, it’s important to ensure the power socket is suitable. Therefore, we recommend a qualified electrician to certify that both the socket and supply are suitable for EV charging.
The Audi A3 has a Type 2 socket as standard, ensuring compatibility with this charger.
Please also check the information at the top of this page, “Please Read Before You Buy”, to help avoid the most common reasons for returning a charging cable.
Do You Want A Charger With Multiple Adapters?
If you’re in search of an EV charger that is compatible with various power sockets, then consider our multi-adapter charger. The charger supports charging from both 1 Phase and 3 Phase sockets, and provides a current range of 6A to 32A.
This charger allows connection to a variety of outlets. For instance, the 3 pin and 5 pin Commando sockets, the 13A mains socket, and the 16A Euro (Schuko) socket. You have the flexibility to choose the specific adapters you need for your charger. Furthermore, it incorporates a charging timer, enabling charging to start anywhere from 1 to 10 hours after being plugged in. When using the 3 pin UK plug adapter, the charger will automatically select a safe 10A charging mode.
For a detailed breakdown of the maximum currents provided by the multi-adapter charger when used with different adapter/power outlets, refer to the table below:
|Adapter & Outlet
|3 Phase CEE 32A
|3 Phase CEE 16A
|1 Phase CEE 32A
|1 Phase CEE 16A
The maximum current displayed in the above table will not necessarily align with the current that the EV/PHEV can accept. In other words, the vehicle can only accept up to the maximum current of its onboard charger (OBC).
EV Cable Bag And Case
We provide a canvas cable bag (suitable for cables up to 10M) to store this charger when not in use. The bag can also be upgraded to a cable carrier case made from EVA material, which has improved waterproof and impact protection. The EVA case has an elasticated strap in the bottom compartment and elasticated mesh pocket in the top to allow convenient storage of two cables. The EVA case can hold two cables, provided each cable is no longer than 10 meters (with a total combined length of 20 meters) and is neatly wound. You can replace the canvas cable bag with an EVA case by selecting the option available in the basket or on the checkout page.
