Why is the emergency charging cable that comes with the car only made 8 A?

Many people may wonder why the charger cable that comes with the electric car only gives 8 A, although the On-Board Charger of the car supports up to 16 A or some cars may go up to 32 A. The answer is safety and fire prevention.



There are 2 sizes of household power plugs available in the market: 10 A and 16A, so we can't be sure of the plug we're going to plug in to charge, which might be at a friend's house. Or other places will support the charging current? Overcharging the plug will cause heat and cause a fire. Standard of the supplied emergency charging cable as standard therefore has a maximum current of only 8 A to order an emergency charging cable that is sold on the Web site with high power therefore not safe



However, for charging trains at home with regular charging. Frequent plugging in and out can cause the plug to come loose. This is another source of heat, although the plug may handle high currents, so we recommend charging with a properly engineered wall charger.
