4.6m extension cable (5 amp) for use with new Optimate 4 and Optimate 6
on 29 November 2012
Cable ordered on 27 Nov 2012 and arrived in new and pristine condition today (2 days later). Thank you Quad Bikes Wales (Amazon shipped?)
Item is a Tecmate SAE-73STD extension cable, 4.6m long, which is rated at 5 amp max, down to temp of -20 degrees C (actual measured length is 4.65m including the plastic "boot" sleeve on one end)
Cable received new and unused in a shipping envelope, in it's plastic cylinder packaging. Package (200mm x 54mm) will be useful for storing the cable when it is not in use. Cable now in use with an Optimate 4 battery charger/conditioner.
There is a "waterproof" (or splashproof?) connector "boot" sleeve that fits onto/over the Optimate 0.50m "croc-clip fly lead" (connected to the battery).
The cable feels good quality if a little inflexible in this cold weather. I like these Tecmate products as they appear well-made - - but as always "time will tell" how good they really are.
Same good quality cable and connectors (unsurprisingly) as the cables on the new Optimate 4 and Optimate 6 battery chargers.
Any problems and I will update this review.
