The BMW i3s has a maximum charge rate of 32 amps. Our cables will automatically switch between 16 and 32 amps so our 16 amp cables can be safely used on a 32 amp charging station and vice versa.
There are subtle cosmetic changes with the i3s (sport) but the most important upgrade is the increased battery pack from 22kWh to 33kWh (94Ah). This means that the charging time of the i3s will be 50% longer charge times. We recommend installing a 32amp single phase or a 3 phase 16A or 32A charger.
Both the BMW i3 and i3s has a CCS type 2 charging socket which looks like this:
The top 7 pins are your standard Type 2 port and the lower pins are used for AC rapid charging which are installed at service stations. For home and fast charging, you will need a Type 2 to Type 2 cable of 16 or 32amps.
