It's 5m, the same as the normal charging lead. Oh yes, and it will only charge at a maximum of 10A (switchable to 8A and 6A), not the full 13A.

thanks AlunS. could I ask how you switch the charge rate ? this could be useful as I will be using solar charging.

There's a button on the back of the box. You press it to cycle through the 3 options, after you connect to the mains, but before you connect it to the car.
