Can You Charge EV Battery Over Pavement? MG5 electric car charging with 3-pin charger in London


In this video I discuss whether it’s safe to charge your EV over pavement/sidewalk, why people do it, and whether it’s allowed by the government.

Products used:
Masterplug waterproof extension 15m:
Floor cable protector 2m:

Do you charge your car only using the home 3-pin socket/outlet charger? Is it safe, and do you think it’s the right way to charge you car?

My car is the MG5 EV, which is a relatively new car released in 2021 in the UK market. I really like this car being one of the only affordable estate (saloon) size cars that is also electric.
