Just be careful of the current rating for the lead and the requirements re earth potential differences. Try to keep any extension as short as possible.

Thanks for the comments, I didn't realise that the cable is going to cost almost as much as the original install was. The shortest most companies sell is 3mtr, ideally a 2mtr would be better for me. Anyone know of anyone who will custom make one to my spec or would I be able to make one myself?

I have the 5m version, my charger is tethered also. I have padlocked the extension cable to the wall to stop it going walkies should someone take a fancy to it, so worth considering a longer cable. Otherwise you're going to have to pack it away each time you use it.

Cheers Solarboy, where did you obtain the extension cable from?

Hopefully after our caravan has been sold, I wont need one as I will be able to get close enough but at the moment I am 2mtrs short......oops

Yes it can be used outside.

It's expensive but compared to the cost of the car, it's only a few quid.

Cheers for your help...
