Extension Cord Tips

Extension Cord Tips

Extension cords come in all shapes and sizes, and are meant for all sorts of work. It is wise to be as careful as possible in selecting the best ones. Extension cords can be meant for indoor only usage and the packaging does not always clearly say this. Usually a sticker on the cord itself will give the information needed.

Additionally, the amount of electricity an extension cord can handle is important. If you plan to have heavy duty lighting, or large numbers of connected devices, you will want a heavy duty cord. In that case, both the length and the gauge are important. The higher the gauge, the thinner the wire or cord, and the less amperage it can safely handle. Also, the longer a wire becomes, the less amperage it can hold as well. So always use the shortest possible extension cords you can if doing some large scale lighting.
