Universal or Tethered?

Connects to all electric cars. No cable included

Tethered Solos have a charging cable permanently attached to them, which can be either Type 1 (4.8m) or Type 2 (7.5m) to match whichever connector your vehicle has. They’re the convenient option as you don’t have to supply a cable separately, but you can’t remove the cable and take it with you.

A universal Solo is more flexible, with you supplying the charging cable. They accept both Type 1 and Type 2 charging cables, so any vehicle can connect to them provided you have the right cable. You can also use this portable charging cable on compatible chargers on the Pod Point Network.
