Is this good for out door christmas decorations ?

Asked by Bob November 22, 2020
4
Answers

Yes, that’s exactly what I use mine for. The only outdoor outlets I have are in the back of the house but my decorations go out front. So I plug it in using an outlet in the back and it wraps around the side of my 1500 sf house with plenty of cord to spare. I’ve been using this cord for a few years now with no problems whatsoever.

Can this cord be buried 2 ft underground?

Asked by Steven October 30, 2020

Answers

Can't bury an extension cord. Need to get a building permit and follow the building code and get anything buried inspected by your city or county before you bury it to make sure it follows code. The cable would have to be approved for in ground use and would need to be protected by the appropriate circuit breaker or fuse for the gauge of wire you are using when you are dealing with high voltages such as 115 volts.

what is the warranty from manufacturer?

I have no idea. It still works after 2 years but I bought it to run the snow blower and we have had no significant snow, so I check it once a year. I never remember having an extension cord that failed on its own accord.Usually, the insulation tears and I wrap electrical tape around it.

does this work for 15 amp 1800 watt chainsaw?

Asked by flow September 14, 2020

Answers

No. For an 1800 watt motor on a 100 foot extension cord, you would need 12 gauge wire or heavier. For longer life on large motors like this, I prefer 10 gauge or 8 gauge wire for this distance. Otherwise the start up current will cause a voltage drop at the saw and that put extra wear on the motor. The longer the wire, the greater the voltage drop for a 15 amp motor. Not just start up current, but current draw under heavy load on a wire too long/thin will cause voltage drop and the motor will run too slow and overheat. This cord works best for lights and small motors like what is common in a weed whacker. Not for saws, shop vacs, or compressors. I don't remember the load rating, but think it should work for motor loads up to about 5 amps and perhaps a couple more amps for lights.

Wire color codes

I assume you are replacing the plug or the other end. I have done that on these extension cords and they work fine. The white wire should be the ground although the white could return excess power to the source.. The black is definitely the main hot wire.

I would be surprised if the lights draw 10 Amps. Check the lighting amperage. I found this on the web. "christmas light strands are wired with 22 gauge (awg) wiring, which has a total ampacity rating of about 5 amps. A strand of 150 incandescent mini lamps at 36 watts total is only pulling 0.3 amps.Nov 30, 2010." 10 amps is a lot of current.

When can I get a couple of these at the HILO location??? Please let me know

Keep checking directly at the store John. The Q and A online is delayed and you may miss your chance in Hilo if you wait.

Can I connect two of these cords together?

Asked by Rick August 11, 2020

Answers

It may not be recommended, but I do this routinely as I have a large lot. There may be q very small loss of power when you increase the distance between the outlet and whatever you are running.

Will this work with an indoor bissell carpet vacuum cleaner or do I need 14 gauge or 12 gauge.

YES, IT WILL WORK JUST FINE.

Home Depot showed this extension cord as what I should buy to go along with the PowerSmart 18 in. 15 Amp Corded Electric Snow Blower which I purchased. This is not the correct extension cord for this snow blower. There video for this extension cord shows that a 15 amp 100 foot cord needs to be 12 guage wire (heavy duty). This is light duty. This extension cord will work for light duty purposes like outdoor lighting but not for heavy duty purposes.

I purchased the 20 inch Black and Decker chainsaw online to do some light duty work around my house and the website suggested I purchase this extension cord along with it. I wasn't sure at first if it was going to work and not blow fuses, but I've used them in combination several times now and have to say they make a great team. The saw is light and sturdy and so is the extension cord. At one hundred feet, it gives me the length I need to reach the jobs that need to be completed, it's light and easy to coil up and I've got the perfect drawer in my garage to store it. I'd highly recommend this extension cord for those little projects that arise when you own a home.

I've bought two of these cords now. First one burnt out, the end of the plug went black. Also I am not sure if the large prong slot is the right size or not, but i've had TWO products get stuck and cannot remove from the extension cord. In both cases the equipment was ruined.

It was a great deal at the time I bought it. Elsewhere, this length cord would be twice the price. It fits perfectly on my Coleman Cables 4 outlet Retractable Extension Cord Reel. Now, it is easily transportable, allows me to plug four things in at the same time and retracts neatly after use. On this reel I can just let out the length I need, instead of having to have to untangle and stretch out the entire cord for just a short distance of use. I recommend this cord for anyone who wants a long cord for light duty indoor/outdoor use..

It's for outdoor/indoor use, rated at 10 amps being 16 gauge, and handles a 2.8 amp electric pole hedger swimmingly. Put it in a storage/dispensing unit as shown and you will have a new buddy. Oh-it's a great value too.
