The charging cable must not be used if any part of it is damaged - there is then the risk of electric shock and serious personal injury.

A damaged or inoperative charging cable must only be repaired by a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.


Never unplug the charging cable from the 230 VAC socket while charging is in progress - there is then a risk of damaging the 230 VAC socket. Always stop charging first, and then disconnect the charging cable.

Multiple plugs, overvoltage protection or similar devices must not be used together with the charging cable since this may involve a risk of fire, electric shocks, etc.

An adapter between the 230 VAC socket and charging cable may only be used if the adapter is marked with approval in accordance with IEC 61851 and IEC 62196.


The charging cable will remember the last setting of the charging current. It is therefore important to adjust the setting if another 230 VAC socket is used at the next charging.
