RE: Meneques adapter ?

I must admit I wasn't aware that there was such a cable to connect a Fluence to Menekes but having done a search yes, there is one available on Ebay. However a word of caution. Are you prepared to try it and risk damage? I don't think I'd risk it unless renault explicitly told me it was safe to use. Price is reasonable at 245 + 10 p&p

Yes, i see what you mean. I am not aware of anyone who has attempted to change the connector on the car, i don't think it would be easy to change the built in connector and Renault do not approve of using adaptors as these are liable to not fit well and overheat with bad results. let's see what other forum members have to say.

RE: Meneques adapter ?

I think it'd be quite easy to change the socket actually. I have commented on the possibility before (perhaps not on this forum?). All the protocols are the same.

However, the rapid charge Mennekes is a 3-phase system, and it may (I do not know) expect a 3 phase charger at the end of it in the car. It will also operate at 400V, and I do not know if Fluence is only expecting a 230V supply. The 'Type 2 system' should be compatible, for both voltage and phases, but whether it is or not is an unknown

It was my understanding that these charge stations will still have a Type 2 1-phase socket to plug into, but ecotricity have also confirmed they will drop support for 'slow' chargers.

If you have a need to go a long distance and take a charge on the motorway, basically the Fluence is the wrong tool for the job.
