Wallbox with charging socket – what does that mean?
Advantage of a wallbox with socket: more damage protection
Advantage of wallbox with cable: more comfort
Note the cable length as you make your purchase
When you buy your wallbox with a fixed cable, pay attention to its length. It is usually between 4 and 6 metres. If the wallbox is well-positioned, a shorter charging cable is sufficient. But if your next e-vehicle has its charge port at a different position (e.g. a front port is about 5 metres from a port on the rear flank), the cable might already be too short. This could make your initial idea to save money quite costly in the long run.
