World’s first electric-car charging cable with integrated technology

Bosch’s new flexible smart charging cable with integrated control and safety technology also does without the usual “charging brick” – as the bulky in-cable control box is colloquially known – when charging at a 230-volt power socket.

This means the flexible smart charging cable, which will celebrate its world premiere at IAA Mobility 2021, weighs less than three kilograms. On average, this is a good 40 percent less than conventional charging cables with a control box. The high-tech cable saves not only weight but also space in the trunk. Because it comes with adapters for Type 2 and household plugs, drivers who want to be free to choose whether to recharge from a power socket at home or from a charging station on the road no longer need a second cable. In effect, recharging electric cars has never been so simple.
