Improve FOCUS EV convinience charger cord

By Jim S.

The Focus EV is great. But it comes with a convenience charge connection so you can charge from any wall out let at 120 vac and it pull 12 amps. The wire size is only 18 gauge and gets cvery hot.

The National Electric code says it should be 14 gauge or larger. This should be changed before there is a fire .

The Plugin hybrid and others Ford vehicles also use this cord. I don't have that car so I can measure and test but I think they all are undersized and need to be corrected.
