I love how the ends light up to show that there is power.

Many national stores sell this product so it's easy to check it out before buying.

I have been using Woods yellow cords for a long time for mobile DJ use. I recently decided to upgrade my cords from 14/3 to 12/3 gauge to get a thicker cord. The 14 gauge cords are thinner and easier to handle than the 12 gauge cords so buy the size needed for your application. For light use with small items or simple household use, go with the 14/3 gauge. For power tools or anything heavy duty, go with these 12/3 cords. The ends are constructed very well and light up when power is present. Overall the cord is well made and very sturdy.

At first, I wasn't too sure that I had made a smart decision paying extra for this particular cord. But after having used it for a couple of months with my electric mower - I can now safely say, without equivocation, that it was one of my better decisions.

The cord is lighter and more flexible than your typical cord 12/3 cord. If you've ever had to drag a 100 feet of cord across your lawn, you know it can be quite a chore due to gravity and friction. You'd think it wouldn't matter - but after an hour or two - it does.

It certainly makes mowing that much less of a chore for me. I'm glad I spent a few more bucks.

I had to wire 2 new outdoor Fountains from my yard to a power outlet at my house. I was using an 18 year old 16 gauge cheapo and it scared me to death. Ordered this and expected an unyielding Cable but am surprised it is very pliable. It is over sized but with 3 12 gauge wires inside plus insulation I would HOPE so! Made in TAIWAN. Never thought I would be HAPPY to see that! But after all the pure crap from China that is flat out dangerous, well, I'm grateful. It is (the packaging so states) "designed to last 15 years with DAILY use". It comes with a lifetime warranty however so not to worry. At this price who cares anyway? And with my being 60 and married, I figure my wife will kill me before I have to worry about this thing anyway....
So after seeing this, I am tossing ALL my nearly 20 year old crap Home Depot 16 gauge cord and ordering more for whatever I may need them for. If I thought old age and an old woman were something to be afraid of, well, lets just say it's nothing compared to the shock I get when a cord goes bad!

Size Name: 100 Foot Verified Purchase
This is a basic HEAVY DUTY 100foot extension cord with a 12/3 wire size. For those new to extension cord wire sizes, the lower the first number, the better... so 10 is better than 12, and 8 is better than 10. When I say better, I mean that the lower gauge (lower numbered) cords actually use a thicker wire, which contains more metal, (hopefully copper!) and thus have a better ability to conduct electricity flow, which means more power to that item which is being supplied electricity by the cord. Many home power outlets supply a maximum of 15 amps of electricity, which is about 1875 watts, but in order to convey "all" of that electricity through an extension cord, without excessive losses, the cord must be a bit heftier than the 16/3 size 100ft. cords you buy for $20 to $30 at hardware stores, warehouse clubs, and various other stores.

You really don't need a cord this thick to power most home appliances, and tools. You can run almost any 120volt device with a 16/3 thickness extension cord; however there are some applications which call for a cord of this thickness. Once such application is an electric chainsaw I recently purchased which draws a full 15 amps of power. This was the minimum thickness of 100 foot cord that was advisable for said electric chainsaw.

Extension cords are not high on features. This one does have lighted ends, which are nice "let's say" if you have a power outage, and you turn on your generator, at night, and then run an extension cord from your generator into the house... at least you'll be able to see the female end of the cord, in the dark, so that you may plug a light into it, or instead plug in your TV if that has a higher priority.

Always know the amps and voltage you need and how much you are losing through the cord right up front.

In any job, whether we're talking money, time, materials, tools or power, always plan for overruns and for more than you think you will need. You will not be sorry.

In a medium-duty extension cord with #14 gauge wire with 15A rating, you will lose 9.1V or 7.6% of your power in 100 feet of cord.

In a heavy-duty extension cord like this Yellow Jacket with #12 gauge wire with 15A rating, you will lose only 5.7V or 4.8% of your power in 100 feet of cord.

In any given cord size and amps, voltage drop is directly porpotional to the length of cord. A 100 foot cord has twice the voltage drop as a 50 foot cord.

Regardless of how well I have planned a job, for some mysterious reason which probably can be traced back to the creation of man, I will need more power. In my case, the need for one more tool at the work sight is a given right up to the point where the job is completed and the clean up begins.

Thus far, I haven't been able to find an extension cord that will provide an extra pair of hands and a strong back.

I keep a Yellow Jacket 2882 12/3 15-Amp SJTW Contractor 2-Foot Extension Cord with Lighted Power Block handy so I'll have 2 extra recepticals for tools if needed.

The product description is accurate. A lifetime warranty and meeting OSHA specifications seals the deal.

As always, more power to you.
