    My UMC has seen better days, it won't consistently charge beyond 16 amps. I'm hoping someone out there wants to part with one at a reasonable price. Please let me know if you are interested.

    Thank You

    Gwagen28 had a mc240 for sale. Ask him if he still has it. It's bigger than a UMC, but not sure if you're just leaving it at home anyways.

    Old USA MC240 is locked to a specific charge rate (I think 24A for older, and 30A for newer), whereas the UMC was more flexible (different rates for different plug ends).
    So keep that in mind if you consider getting one of the older units.

    Thanks guys! At this point, I want to keep looking for the UMC that will charge up 40 amps. There are times when I need all the charge I can get, quickly. For the time being, I can still charge at 16 amps. If the UMC doesn't happen, then I'll go for the MC240.
