Amazon. This for example. Handy to have as a last-resort 12v charging backup (it is unregulated i believe), but probably about the worst thing to use as a primary 12 v source from that genset.

I think what the OP is looking for in his first question is the cable set up HiTech posted for 12v charging.

The only confusion is I don't know which "plug" or which "receptacle" the OP is referring to in his second question as there are a couple possibilities so a clarification would help.

That looks like a 120 volt, 20 amp configuration. You might try Lowe's or Home Depot. Failing that, most medium to larger size towns have a wholesale electricians' supply house that carries all manner of such stuff. If you have to go there, you'll get a high quality one, but it'll probably be expensive. You might also check with your local Honda generator store.

Thanks.... I want to make up my own set of jumper cables.
More heavy duty and longer length... than what I can buy from Honda.
If it is unregulated 12 vdc? How do I fix this?

You could add regulation, but for the same price you could just buy a manual portable battery charger from somewhere like Harbor Freight to plug into the 120 v plug and it will charge batteries better and faster, using less gas.

Not only unregulated, its so little amperage its hardly worth the price of a plug. A 10 amp batt charger will do better.

Good idea on just using a battery charger.
So that would be better to charge my house batteries?

Only wanted to make my own plug, because the Honda setup looks kinda rinky dink.
And I thought for 15 bucks would be a fun project.

There probably isn't a easy or cheap fix for the unregulated portion of the 12v. What are your plans that require a heavier set of cables than Honda offers? I am asking out of interest not just to thrash your plans or ideas later.
