Default Looking for Extension cord for battery chargers

I am getting tired of sitting my charger in my engine compartment to charge batteries. Does anyone make an extension cord (Maybe 10') with banana/bullet connectors for this purpose? I wanted to try to make one from an extension cord but I cannot find inline female banana connectors that will take 14 gauge wire. Any help would be appreciated.


Thx


Scot

Can you solder?

You could cut the exisisting wire from you charger close to where it leaves the charger and solder a new (longer) wire to it.

I wound up taking an extension cord from Lowes that was 14/2 or 14/3 and soldered on bullit connectors. That seems to work for my application. I have not tried using it under high loads though.
