Have any of you lengthen your charge side wire to say three feet or longer? If so have you had any trouble with charging?

I am thinking of putting longer wires on such as three feet.

Doubt you'd have any issues, go for it.

I gotta ask. Why would you want or need 3 foot of wire?

There are time I want to charge a battery all ready in my car and with the short wire on the T30 you have to move the charger to get it close enough. This way I can put the car out of the way and work on other things.

Make sure you extend both wires(big & thin) to get accurate readings.

Voltage sensing and current draw leads
The voltage sensing leads (small wires) are not dependant on length. You can make tem any length you want. They need to be connected to something that is soldered directly to the battery. That is why we make them separate from the current wires (large wires). There is a voltage drop at the point where the current jumps from the battery terminal to the current clip. If you solder them to the current clips, or attach them to the current clips, the voltage is being measured after the drop occurs. A typical error would be about .30 volts with a 30 amp discharge rate. That means your 6 cell pack will cut off at 5.70 volts instead of 5.40. The current carrying wires can be lengthened, but if you want to discharge single cells at 35 amps, the wires will need to be kept original length. The calibration of the unit is not dependant on wire length, but its ability to control current at the extremes may be compromised when a lot of wire is added.
