Product Description

Length: 3 Feet/0.91 Meters

This outlet saver cord keeps your surge strip and UPS outlets from being blocked by bulky AC transformers. It is designed to work with power transformers, computers, monitors, scanners, printers, and other devices that use the 3-pin male-to-female shroud power connector. Plus this heavy duty 18 AWG cord features a fully molded design for maximum durability and long life.

The female connector plugs directly into the device power cable while the male connector plugs into a standard outlet.

Connector 1: (1) NEMA 5-15 Female

Connector 2: (1) NEMA 5-15 Male

Size Name: 1 Feet/0.30 Meters Verified Purchase
This product is fine if you are just using it to free up space on your surge protector or UPS that would otherwise be used by A/C adapters for cell phones, speakers, etc.

However, this cord is only rated for 10 amps. Unfortunately that is not disclosed anywhere in the promotional materials. This means you can only use it for electrical loads of up to 10x125 volts = 1,250 watts. So if you were intending to use this with a Kill-A-Watt to measure, for example, how much electricity your refrigerator or microwave uses, well, don't do it because those appliances may draw more than 1250 watts and overheat the wire, possibly causing a fire.

What is needed for use with the Kill-A-Watt is an extension cord that is rated for 15 amps or more. That will allow safe transmission of the electricity over the extension cord without overloading it.

Size Name: 1 Feet/0.30 Meters Verified Purchase
The description includes "NEMA 5-15." This indicates it is rated as 15 Amps (and 1875 Watts at 125 Volts); the "15" in "NEMA 5-15" refers to the amperage rating. (See the chart at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NEMA_connector#NEMA_nomenclature.) However, the item I received has a tag attached that says it is rated at only 10 Amps. See my two images.

To examine the cable it would seem to be well made and good quality. But the attached "10A" tag means the inferior quality is in the gauge of the conductors. The cable is stamped "18 AWG," i.e., 18 gauge, the maximum safe load of which in this type of three-conductor cable is 10 Amps. The specification "18 AWG" does appear in the description, but is not directly recognizable as implying the 10-Amp limit and is easy to overlook and/or disregard (as I did) in the presence of the immediately recognizable spec "NEMA 5-15" that indicates 15 Amps directly.

(NOTE: There's no simple chart for current capacity because there are many factors to be considered, including conductor material and gauge, insulation, ambient temperature, number of conductors bundled together, and application circumstances. Caution must be exercised in simplifying, but generally in typical household usage an 18 AWG three-conductor extension cord such as this has a rating of 10 Amps, as the attached tag says. For a rating of 15 Amps it would need to be at least 14 AWG. See, e.g.:

This extension cord is only rated for 13A, so be cautious when plugging devices into it (most other extension cords & power strips are rated 15A). Other than that it is exactly as advertised.

Size Name: 3 Feet/0.91 Meters Verified Purchase
I purchased a "Kill-A-Watt EZ" and use this 3' extension cable in conjunction with that. For background, the Kill a Watt EZ measures power consumption of anything plugged into it and displays watts consumed and if you enter your local utility's cost per Kw it will tell you what it costs to operate on a per day, per month, per year basis. The only issue is that you plug it into the wall and then the electricity consuming device into it, after, you have to get down on your hands and knees to view the reading. Kind of a pain to do. In using the unit with the CTG 3' Outlet Saver Power Cord I find it much easier to use.

What can you say about a 3' extension cord...It's a well constructed cord for the money and does the job intended.

Size Name: 1 Feet/0.30 Meters Verified Purchase
I ordered two of these to free up outlets on my UPS that had transformers plugged into it. It seems to be a good quality extension cord, and it says made in China. But it is not one foot in length. When it said 1 foot, I was thinking the actual cord was 1 foot long(from plug to plug). It is not! The actual cord length, not measuring the plugs, is exactly nine inches long. Other than that, it serves its purpose.

I decided to run the cables from my wall mounted tv through the wall only to find that the power cord for my tv was a little short.

So I got this, tapped them together with electrical tape so they didn't come apart, and finished up my project.

Cables were a bit thicker than what I'd expected for the price. They look more that solid for extending the short power chord for my big screen TV. They been plugged in for a few months now. I couldn't find them at Lowe's or Home Depot, but these are better than they look in the picture. Seller was fast with delivery.
