Is this the removable high Amp
Its what's usually called the UMC, it isn't really a wall connector, but some use it that way. Its intended to be plugged into an outlet and has a wide range of supported outlet types(but only one or two are supplied by default in the kit that comes with a 3).
Its limited to 32 amps, unlike the 48 amps supported by the hardwired 'real' wall connector.
[Edit]: it also looks like an older model UMC.
It better than the mobile connector that come with the car?
The UMC is the Universal Mobile Connector. The "hard wired" connector is better in that it can give you 48amps.
I need a spare UMC . Where can I find one used. Thanks
Ebay has dozens.
It should be noted that the Gen1 UMC could do 40 amps instead of the newer 32 amp limited ones. I'm not sure what else changed between them.
Ok thanks !
