Video Of The Lucid Mobile Charging Cable In Action

June 16, 2022

All Lucid Air EVs currently come with a Lucid mobile charging cable in the trunk. It is located in the front left section of the trunk in a cute nicely fitted bag. You can use this to charge both on a NEMA 14-50 outlet or on a standard NEMA 5-15 outlet (a typical household plug). The NEMA 14-50 charges much faster than the NEMA 5-15 outlet, as you would imagine.

In any event, @Tesla2Lucid posted on Twitter a video of his Lucid charging with this Lucid mobile charging cable. I think he is using the typical household plug, the NEMA 5-15 outlet, and getting what EV owners call a “trickle charge.” You get about four mile per hour of charge over the NEMA 5-15 outlet, whereas you get about 40 miles per hour with the NEMA 14-50, I believe.

Here is that video:

Here is a diagram of what is included with this cable:

Obviously for the NEMA 14-50 to work, you need to have a NEMA 14-50 outlet in your garage. I installed one recently but I also will be using a Wallbox and I will keep this Lucid mobile charger in my car, just in case. I hear plugging in and out the mobile charger will eventually wear on the NEMA 14-50 outlet, so it is best to just keep it plugged in. So that is why people keep the mobile charger in their car and buy a third party level 2 charger for their home.
