What's the difference between a tethered and a socketed charge point?
Tethered charge points have a long cable and are available with either a Type 1 or Type 2 connector. Most new EVs come with a Type 2 connector, but it's always worth checking before getting a tethered charge point. A socketed charge point has no cable and is essentially a dedicated charging station. These are universal as they can charge any electric car with a fast charging cable.
