By "e-hose" (like a gas hose and nozzle at a gas station), I was referring to a particular type of drive-over tested, 4-conductor cable, connected to an EVSE at one end and with a J1772 plug at the other end, used for providing "e-fuel" to (charging) an EV, not just any wires, sometimes enclosed-in-insulation (telephone cable, under-sea cable, RF cable, message sent by wire, etc).
Perhaps a better term will emerge.
Some might like using the more general terms "charger", "cable", and "plug" or "connector".
ok, then EVSE cable, it is a cable and it is NOT a hose. "e-fuel" is another term you made up, but it bothers me less because electricity could be argued to be a fuel, but it again just seems easier to use the existing term of fuel or electricity rather than e-fuel. Why this need to create new names?
