Anyone know what the spec of the EX30 is? I can't seem to find info on whether the car/cable charging is monophasic or triphasic. I only ask as I've started to see charging points popping up that say to not use monophasic cables.

Since the Ultra has three-phase charging surely it's a suitable cable?

One would assume so but curious if there's away to tell by looking at it.

I would assume the EX30 is triphasic as it can AC charge over 7kw upto 22kw, which you need a 3 phase cable for.

Why is when you search the terms monophasic and triphasic it only returns information on contraceptive pills? Not seen those terms on any chargers in the UK?

ya it's weird I can't really find information on this technical detail, but I think it's because it's called "three phase" instead of triphasic.
I am 98% certain that the EX30 uses a 3 phase system but was just curious how one would tell .
