EV Charging cable for Toyota Prius Prime

The Toyota Prius Prime has a Yazaki connection, so it requires a type 1 ev charging cable. The car has a 1-phase 3.7 kW charging capacity. It is therefore possible to use both a phase 3 and phase 1 ev charging cable, because a heavier cable has no influence on the charging capacity.

Wallbox for Toyota Prius Prime

The electric Toyota Prius Prime has a maximum charging power of 3.7 kW with an usable battery capacity of 8.8 kWh. This means that charging via a wallbox can be useful. A number of things could be important to keep in mind. A wallbox with a heavier charging capacity will not charge more than the maximum load capacity of your car, but it can't hurt either. Wallboxes have 4 charging capacities, provided that these cannot be adjusted yourself:

3.7 kW wallbox (1 phase of 16A): will charge a maximum of 3.7 kW for this car.
7.4 kW wallbox (1 phase of 32A): will charge a maximum of 3.7 kW for this car.
11 kW wallbox (3 phases of 16A): will charge a maximum of 3.7 kW for this car.
22 kW wallbox (3 phases of 32A): will charge a maximum of 3.7 kW for this car.

Fuse box connection for the wallbox
The choice of the best wallbox for your Toyota Prius Prime in this case does not depend on your fuse box. Almost every fuse box can handle the power of 16A / 3.7 kW, even if you still have a 1 phase connection. Keep in mind that sometimes there may not be enough space and the fuse box may need to be expanded. What may be wise to consider is an 11 kW wallbox of 3 phases if you already have a fuse box with a 3 phase connection. With such a wallbox you are immediately prepared for the future, because most fully electric cars have a charging capacity of 11 kW for which a 3 phase connection is required. If you expect a fully electric car in the future, then a wallbox with a 3.7 kW charging capacity will probably have too low a charging capacity. But keep in mind that the type 1 plug is hardly used for new electric cars so. Our advice is to take a wallbox with socket so you can use it for other cars too.

Mobile wallbox for Toyota Prius Prime

With a mobile wallbox (also called portable ev charger), you can charge your hybrid or electric car through a normal socket at home. So do the Toyota Prius Prime. Sockets at home have a power of about 220 volt, depending on your country. A mobile wallbox is equipped in such a way that it can be connected to that power grid. Often, charging at home via the socket is less fast, but for this battery capacity and charging speed, the difference is not very big. The most economical solution for the Toyota Prius Prime and still use the maximum charging capacity is therefore the mobile wallbox.

A mobile wallbox can usually charge 2.3 or 3.7 kW (10 or 16A), so you can also charge the car just as fast via a mobile wallbox. Make sure that you take into account the rest of the power consumption on the same group. 16A is more power than usual in your household consumed by a device, this can have nasty consequences. Also, you cannot put the portable ev charger on every extension cord, we also have special extension cables for that.
