Adaptors to use a UK EV granny charger in Europe

  • Sale
  • Regular price £13.99

This page brings together our adaptors to enable a UK granny charger to be used across most of Europe in one place, to help simplify ordering.

The electricity supply in Europe is 230v 50Hz, which is the same as the UK. The two most common domestic sockets look very similar:

 Schuko Socket (Type F)

2 pin socket, with the earth connected by the side contacts.

French Socket (Type E)

2 pin socket, with the earth connected by a pin which protrudes from the socket and inserts into the plug.

All of the adaptors on this page use a special plug which is compatible with both Schuko and French sockets.

It can therefore be used in any country coloured light blue or grey below, including Albania, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy (modern installations only), Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and Ukraine.

A range of adaptors are available on the EV page of the website for countries on the map which are not coloured light blue or grey. If you are not sure which adaptor you require, we're always happy to advise.

Typical Application
