WAI shows off its EV charging cables durability

Date: Thursday 18 August 2022

As the electric vehicle (EV) market continues to increase rapidly, leading automotive parts supplier, WAI, has been testing the durability of its popular EV charging cables to prove the product’s long-lasting credentials.

WAI has carried out its own tests at the company’s HQ to show customers just how robust they are. The video shows WAI’s EV cables being dropped from a height, driven over, and the wire being cut – with the cable coming out unscathed. Proving that the cables are super durable and can withstand any number of things without being damaged.

The EV cables have also been gaining positive reviews from the automotive community. Paul Hadley, from Motor Verso, commented in his review on the thickness of the cable’s protective sleeve, saying: “WAI put it through a lot of torture testing. They’ve driven over this cable, thrown it about, and abused it in every way possible. So, no matter how often you have to charge your EV, it’ll always stay protected from anything you can throw at it.”

WAI’s latest EV charging cables range covers popular vehicle applications including Type 2 Female to Type 2 Male 32 Amp Single Phase and Three Phase, Type 2 Female to UK Plug (with controller) 16 Amp and 32 Amp, and Type 2 Female to EU Plug (with controller) 16 Amp and 32 Amp for Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Tesla, Jaguar, KIA, Mini, Hyundai, Nissan Leaf (2008), Renault, Smart, Tesla, Toyota, Volvo, Porsche, Range Rover P400e and Lucid Air.

The range also includes Type 1 Female to Type 2 Male 32 Amp, Type 1 Female to UK Plug (with controller) 16 Amp, and Type 1 Female to EU Plug (with controller) 16 Amp for Ford Focus Electric, Lia Soul EV, Citroen C-Zero, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Nissan Leaf (2012 – 2017), Toyota Prius, Renault Fluence and Peugeot iOn.

WAI’s EV cables are TUV Certified and available in a five-metre length and a 10-metre extension length.
