    Hi guys,
    Just bought my first plug in, used car, I would like to say that i first started from Prius 1, then 2nd generation, and yesterday just arrived 3rd plug in gen. I am very thrilled.
    Well, I bought it from the The Netherlands, over there are abundance of Charging Stations, so the cable that came in is just a cord from J1772 type 1 to J1772 Type 2, so the OE charging cable i don't have.
    The OE charging cable is quite expensive, i saw in China that i can find charging cable with European Socket (Schuko). Still, I was wondering if i can do something to reduce my cost for the charging cable that I need.
    From the cord that i have (missing the control box) if i make or buy an adapter and plug it directly to 220V is ok?
    An adapter from J1772 Type 2 to European socket will it work?
    Thank you,

    You may want to post in the plug -n forum. Around here, we charge the traction battery with the ICE! :)

    yes, if you make or buy the correct adapter, it will work.
