How long is the new UMC cable in total? Looking to using it at my Dad’s house, want to make sure it is long enough to reach from his dryer plug!
Thanks!

I have carried a 50' UMC (I also own a 40 footer as well) for years. It was “stretched” with Mil-spec crimping by @TonyWilliams of quickchargepower.com. This eliminates some of the risks associated with excessive heat buildup at connection points as well as the risk of accidentally pulling too much amperage since many folks use an improperly terminated 14-50 extension cord that often requires manual intervention to set a safe charge rate and that also requires re-checking with every use since many cars in the past have “forgotten” after an update.

Good-luck!
