Charge All Models Of The Audi A3 e-tron With A 1 Phase 32A Commando / CEE Socket.
The Type 2 to 220V-240V (230V) Blue 32A Commando charger is capable of delivering a current of up to 7.4W.
It does not matter if your vehicle can handle more or less than 7.4kW, because the vehicle will dictate the maximum current it can draw from the EV charger.
This Commando socket charger is single phase. Also known as the industrial socket charger, camping socket charger and CEE charger.
The charger’s current can be adjusted to provide 10A, 16A, 26A, or 32A, and your chosen setting will be saved for the next time you charge your EV.
Check beforehand that your Commando socket is 1 Phase 32A. The socket will usually be blue. Are you looking for a Type 2 to 16A or 32A 3 Phase CEE charger, or a 16A 1 Phase CEE charger? Then please view our selection of Type 2 to CEE / Commando socket chargers.
Is This 32a Single Phase Commando Charger Suitable For The Audi A3?
Choosing The Right Charger
The 32A Commando plug can be used with a 1 Phase 32A Commando socket. You can identify the socket by its blue cover and the presence of three holes, along with the marking “32A” or “32”.
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, thus 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 a versatile EV charger 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 free canvas cable bag (suitable for cables up to 10M) to store this charger when not in use. You can also upgrade the bag to a cable case made from EVA material for enhanced waterproofing and impact protection. The EVA case has an elasticated strap in the bottom compartment and elasticated mesh pocket in the top. So it allows convenient storage of two cables. The EVA case can therefore carry 2 cables if each cable does not exceed 10 metres length (20M total length). You can replace the canvas bag with an EVA case by selecting the option in the basket or checkout page.
