Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Cerro with your product inquiry. It is not recommended to use NM-B wire outside, however we would suggest the UF wire which would work better for that application and usage.

Here is what NM-B means:
NM-B cable is the most common form of indoor residential electrical wiring. The “NM” stands for non-metallic, which refers to the flexible, generally PVC sheathing surrounding the cable. The “B” represents a heat rating of 194-degrees Fahrenheit. This rating ensures wires can operate at certain levels without overheating, melting the insulation and creating fire and safety Read More
Here is what NM-B means:
NM-B cable is the most common form of indoor residential electrical wiring. The “NM” stands for non-metallic, which refers to the flexible, generally PVC sheathing surrounding the cable. The “B” represents a heat rating of 194-degrees Fahrenheit. This rating ensures wires can operate at certain levels without overheating, melting the insulation and creating fire and safety hazards. Inside the sheathing are at least two thermoplastic insulated wires of the same gauge, though different cables can have different gauges. As with wire, all the information you need to know about NM-B cable is printed on the sheathing.
The 12/2 is the gauge of the wire. A 10/2 cable is thicker (higher gauge) and is meant for large appliances and such. 12/2 (and 14/2) are meant for residential use for standard electrical work. 12/2 is rated for 20A, while 14/2 is rated for 15A. In my example, 12 and 14 are the wire gauge, and the 2 is the number of wires inside the sheathing. Most electrical wiring also includes a ground, but it is just copper wiring (usually) and not the same gauge, which is fine. To be safe, if you are doing residential work, I would go with 12/2.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Actually required by my city I bought this as a replacement for 14-2 wiring after discovering that the city I live in actually requires 12-2 wiring for interior work. I needed to put in a new electrical outlet for a ceiling mounted projector, and this worked like a champ. The thicker gauge means it won't twist or tangle easily, and it lays flat over most surfaces. Additionally, I bought this on sale ($22) through HD's "special of the day" email, so the shipping was free. Great deal for a great product. January 13, 2015
