If you've recently become the proud owner of an Audi e-tron® vehicle, you're probably looking forward to leaving gas stations and oil changes behind. While reduced maintenance and the ability to forgo fuel stops are great advantages, there are a few EV-specific services you'll want to keep in mind. One such task is caring for your Audi e-tron® at-home socket and charger. Keeping your at-home charging station in your Santa Clara garage in great shape is the best way to ensure you'll always have the power you need to take on your commutes from Milpitas to Newark. Below, the Audi Fremont team will review the service expectations for your Audi e-tron® charging cable and socket.

When to Inspect the Audi e-tron® Charging Socket & Cable

Your Audi e-tron® charging socket and cable are to be inspected once every 2 years or 20,000 miles, whichever comes first. During this inspection, our Audi service experts will check for damage and contamination. Audi engineers design your Audi e-tron® at-home socket and charger to stand the test of time, so it's not often that our tests will reveal any damage.

What Leads to Audi e-tron® Charging Cable & Socket Damage?

As previously mentioned, it's uncommon that you'll have to deal with any damage to your Audi e-tron® at-home socket or charging cable. That said, it's still wise to understand the common causes of Audi e-tron® charging socket and cable damage so you can work to avoid it:

  • Extreme weather exposure including high temperatures, humidity, and precipitation, can eventually lead to mechanical issues with your Audi e-tron® charging system.
  • Poor ventilation also contributes to Audi e-tron® charging socket and cable damage.

How to Protect Your Audi e-tron® Charging Cable & Socket

While minor wear and tear caused by usage will accrue with any automotive component, there are steps you can take to minimize the risk of damaging your Audi e-tron® at-home socket and cable:

  • Have your at-home charger installed in a well-ventilated area that also offers protection from the elements. 
  • Once you're done charging, store your cable neatly. Avoid leaving your cable on the ground where you might accidentally step on or run over it.
