Wonder if anyone has managed to get/use a 3 pin charger for the e-nero? I'm currently staying in the middle of nowhere with only 22kw chargers anywhere near, all of which have a 4 hour max usage (took an hour to get 6% charge yesterday) . As I have electricity where I'm at, a 3 pin charger might have come in handy as I could plug in overnight as a last resort.

I only got my car yesterday, but it came with a 13amp charger in the boot.

The e-niro UK specification includes a 3-pin charger as standard. If you don't have one try a search on "e-niro portable charge cable". They're not cheap though and at only 2.3KW it takes a long time to charge a full 64KWh battery.

I know this is an old post, but as nobody has answered, I will. A new e Niro comes with a 3-pin cable, buried in the second layer down in the boot ..... remove the semicircular black foam layer to find it. I have used mine in similar circumstances for a full charge in 30 hours or so.
