The Type 1 plug is a single-phase plug which allows for charging power levels of up to 7.4 kW (230 V, 32 A). The standard is mainly used in car models from the Asian region, and is rare in Europe, which is why there are very few public type 1 charging stations.

Different charging cables and plugs are used depending on the electric car and the type of charging current types as AC or DC. In principle, the components of the charging cable that is plugged into the car inlet are called the charging connector.
The charging plug is the other end of a Mode 3 charging cable that is plugged into the charging station outlet if one is present.
