Customer Questions & Answers

What makes it a "cold weather" cord?

Asked by: Karlomagno
The "cold weather" rating is due to the claim that this stays flexible down to -58 degrees F. I've only had a chance to use it to 40F (above freezing). While it is still flexible at that temp, it does retain some curls which makes it hard to coil neatly. It's better that some of my cords in cool weather, but not as good as a couple I have that are only 10 years old, so this doesn't appear to be the best cold-weather cord.

Can this be used outside in the snow?

Asked by: Nate
Yes. That is what it is made for.

100 ft. 12/3 (-50 Degree) Cold Weather Extension Cord is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible, Tough Cord This is a well made quality cord. It remains flexible in freezing weather. To get an honest assessment and review for this cord under cold conditions, I placed the cord in our freezer for 24 hours. The freezer is set to -10 degrees. I removed the cord and began using it in a normal fashion right away. The cord remained very flexible and easy to work with. I was able to uncoil and recoil with ease. I would say this is an ideal cord for not only winter use, but for all seasons. The cord ends are molded. The cord is heavy due to the gauge of the wire. 12 gauge will run a variety of equipment at one time. I ran an air compressor (8-gallon), battery charger and twin 500w halogen construction light at the same time with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Gauge for the Cold Stage It's pretty unbelievable what a heavy duty extension cord can cost, but this one is worth it. First off, it's 100 foot length is more than ample for running a power tool from the front house outlet out to the backyard. The heavy gauge wire used allows you to run high amp pulling equipment like powerful leaf blowers or large circular saws. The cord itself feels robust, well insulated, and flexible, albeit heavy from the thick gauge used. I couldn't test the cold weather capability in Florida, but I'm sure this product is up to the test. I'm very pleased to own this extension cord and can't wait to use it for all of my heavy duty home projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High-Visibility 100' Cold Weather 12 Gauge/3 Conductor Extension Cord After struggling with a 50 foot 12/3 extension cord last winter while using my electric snow blower to clear my driveway, I decided I had to do one of two things for the next winter. Either get a much longer cord or replace my snow blower with a gas or battery-powered model. Well, seeing as how I'm still poor ha ha, I figured I'd go the longer cord route. This cord is solidly built with a striking solid blue sheath along the length of the cord that should prove more visible than the red and black striped 50 foot cord I used last year in the dark. Honestly though, beyond the specifications of the extension cord and a visual inspection, there isn't really a whole lot to test other than powering a tool on it. But I've never had an issue with an extension cord powering a tool other than when the sheath has been completely cut through, so I feel confident recommending this product to home and business owners alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cord This cord is a nice heavy gauge and is insulated well. The 25’ length is perfect for my garage / shop. I run a lot of power tools and needed a cord that would handle the load requirements for large power tools and this cord is perfect for that. Having the proper size cord is very important for safe operation of electrical devices and this one being a 12 gauge is good for 20 amps of continuous current. I have also used to to supply power to my RV. I ran the air conditioner with no issues at all. Additionally it is weatherproof making it good for all situations. Very nice extension cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Medium Duty Cord Made In USA With 3 Year Warranty This cord is medium duty which means that it can power things like a engine block heater to a electric snow blower,hedge trimmers,generators etc.... The cord is 12 gauge which means that it uses a larger size wire so it will power items that use higher amperage without the cord getting hot. The three prong plug means that it is grounded threw the wall socket for safety. The cord will get stiff in cold weather but is is listed at -50 below zero so if you live in Alaska and need to power a engine block heater this should work fine ( LOL )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue This was delivered on a 23 Degree day. It sat on the porch for a few hours. When I opened it, the cord showed no stiffness. It is rated to -50 Degrees, but I highly doubt I will be testing that. 12/3, at 100', will handle up to 15A, which covers any tool I will be using with an extension cord; I already have a 10/3, for my back-up generator, or if using more than one tool. In case you forget; like most cords, it is stamped with its rating (see pic). It has a limited 3 year warranty; which I hope I will not need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Weather Extension Cord Need to replace my extension cord when the ground prong broke off. I needed a 12 gauge wire 50’ extension cord. This is for indoor and outdoor use. It made for cold weather, here in Southern California it doesn’t get very. It stays flexible from -58 degree F to 167 degree F. The extension cord is for medium use and it is kink free. The maximum watts is 1875 and maximum 20 amps. I using it in the garage running my power tools. Comes with 3 year warranty. The cord is really flexible. Made in the USA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty and Flexible! This is a great extension cord for out in the garage, or for short runs outside in the yard. The bright blue color makes it easy to see, and the heavy 12 gauge conductor can handle heavy current draw from just about any 120V electric power tool. The cord stays very flexible in cold weather. I've used mine in temperatures down to 20°F, and it was still easy to bend and flex. I've used other lighter weight extension cords in the cold, and they start to stiffen up around 40°F, so this one has great cold weather performance. I've ran my table saw and 13" planer off of this cord with no noticeable difference in performance. I measured the resistance of the extension cord at 0.6 Ohms from one end to the other. That will correspond to a 9 volt drop for a tool pulling 15 Amps (remember, according to Dr. Ohm and his law, voltage = current*resistance). So your 120V wall supply will still be a respectable 111V by the time it gets to the tool.
