Ford focus electric convenience cord gives owners easy handle on recharging

When Ford Motor Company debuts its all-new Focus Electric in late 2011, customers will learn a new way of “refueling” – plugging in instead of gassing up.

the 120 cord set that comes with the FOCUS needs to be improved. It's 16 awg wire is barely capable of handling the 12 amps charging or cooling. If you look at the LEAF unit it's twice as good and made by Panasonic. You need to improve it.

In fact it could become a safety factor as they get so hot on a long charge. If someone uses an extension cord with it the problem is even worse. You should over build this simple little unit.
