This is an ideal shop cord. If you’re like most people, you already have a 50' or 100' heavy-gauge extension cord, purchased on the premise that a long cord can be used in place of a short cord, while the converse is not true. But, in most shops, even a 50' cord is unnecessarily long and can get underfoot. At 15' in length, this one is the right size for most indoor applications.
The heavy-duty 12 gauge cord is ideal for use with heavy or continuous draws, and inexpensive enough to dedicate to individual tools. Rated to 15 amps, 125 volts, it is usable indoors or out, accepts two- or three-prong plugs, and has an abrasion-resistant sheathing that remains flexible in temperatures as low as -31°F (-35°C). It is cETLus listed and as an added safety feature, the outlet glows orange when live.
