Kia Charging Cables

Charging cables can be a bottleneck in the charging time of your Kia, so it’s important to make sure that you have a compatible high-quality cable. Both Kia EVs and PHEVs are compatible with type 2 charging cables.

At Smartly we stock a range of charging cables for Kia electric vehicles, including:

Smartly Type 2 to Type 2 cables
Smartly Tethered Charging cables

All our cables are manufactured using premium materials in the UK. If you are not sure what cables, chargers or accessories are compatible with your Kia, our vehicle selector tool.

Kia Chargers

For reliable, fast and cost-efficient charging, it’s important that you equip your home with a dedicated electric charger.

We offer a range of charger solutions for home installation, including:

Easee One 7.4kW Single Phase Charger
Myenergi Zappi Single or Three-Phase Charger
Wallbox Pulsar Max 7.4kW Single Phase Charger

Why Choose Smartly?

Opening electric vehicles and charging to more people is central to our mission at Smartly. We champion improving accessibility to electric vehicles by providing our customers with a range of quality products and easy-to-understand information, so you know exactly what you are purchasing.

All our cables are manufactured in the UK using premium grade materials and all our other products are sourced from high-quality European suppliers.

In addition to our quality products and services, we also take our responsibility as a carbon-neutral company seriously. That’s why every month we plant at least 30 trees to offset our carbon emissions by partnering with One Tree Planted.

Yes, like with most electric vehicles you can charge your Kia in emergencies using a 3-pin charger. However, this method of charging is extremely slow and inefficient, so we recommend using a dedicated charger instead. It will be significantly harder to charge a Kia EV with a 3-pin charger than a PHEV.
The precise cost to fully charge your Kia will depend on your energy prices and model, but it will typically cost around £8.35 for a full charge for an EV. For a PHEV, it will typically cost around £2.38-£3.
The time it takes to fully charge your Kia will depend on your model, your charger and the charging cable you are using.

In general, to charge your Kia EV from empty to full, it will take:
● Between 34.5 - 39 hours using a 3kW emergency 3-pin charger
● Between 9 – 10.5 hours using a 7kW charger
● Between 2.9 – 3.3 hours using a 22kW charger
● Between 1.2 -1.45 hours using a rapid 50kW charger

For a Kia PHEV it will take an average of:
● Between 4-6 hours using a 3kW emergency 3-pin charger
● Between 4-5 hours using a 7kW charger
● 4 hours using a 22kW charger

Note that Kia PHEVs are not compatible with rapid chargers.
No, Kia electric vehicles can be charged using standard electric vehicle charging cables with compatible connectors.
