The MG can charge up to 11kw with ac charging. So you are best to get one of our 22kW Type 2 to Type 2 cables rather than limiting to the 7kw of other cables to make use of the faster charging. They are backwards compatible with the 7kW chargers. 

The majority of free public chargers use the Type 2 Socket, so this cable will allow you to use the chargers. Note Some public charges have a Type 2 hard wired so a cable is not needed 100% of the time.
