Am about to order a cable to connect the car to the wallbox as the wallbox model fitted is not tethered. I will go for a tri phase to future proof it. I am wondering whether to get a 7m cable so that I could use that in the car enabling me to front park if I want to rather than having to reverse into parking spaces or give some additional range if a stupid ICE driver is parked in the e car spot by the charger. I know the cables are heavy and a bit cumbersome anyone got any thoughts and recommendations? It is about 30 euro more over a 5m cable. I am hoping the car supplied 4m cable will be useable at home 7m is longer than I need 5 is the compromise there. I would hate to get the longer one and then find it is a pain to use.

I think Mercedes have a 5m one now. Longer is better if not sure in my experience anyway. If too long you can I guess use velcro to tie the extra in a loop and this will help keep it from puddles on ground too, though I think it better to leave the loop on the ground if there will be a strain on the cable plugs. Also watch out for any heating of the cable if coiled. Let us know how you get on

Thanks for replying will order the longer 7m. Am getting a greencell one and as our dear friends Amazon have a prime day coming up I shall wait to see if this is on offer so will order next week now.
