    I think it is good quality and fit my purpose very good.
    Tobie
    This was perfect to give me just a few inches needed to reach the power strip without having to use a full size extension cord.

    It works just fine, so I have no negatives to say about it.

    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.

    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.

    2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nuknuk TOP 100 REVIEWER on August 26, 2008
    Size Name: 1 Feet/0.30 Meters
    Simple but quite useful product.

    I have a UPS and a few powerstrips in the house. They are great by providing more outlets. But with all the power adapters that runs most of the gadgets today, even one of those power adapters can cover 2 to 3 outlets which defeats the purpose of having a powerstrip. The liberator solves that problem.

    Also, some power adapters can be huge and heavy that its weight alone tends to loosen it from the wall, the liberator serves as a little extension to prevent it from loosening up. Loose connections are dangerous, it can produce sparks that not only can ruin your equipments but can even starts a fire. Countertop receptacles can also be problematic where they are awkwardly situated sideways.

    Size Name: 1 Feet/0.30 Meters Verified Purchase
    I have about 20 of these in my home, all of them serving to connect AC outlets to a variety of chargers, power supplies, and so on. They are really handy and allow you to get those large power supplies (like for printers/scanners) off to the side, and out of the way from your power strips/surge protectors. This frees up more outlets on your power strip for other cords. I used one on my patio---the short (1 foot) extension cord allowed me connect a heavy timer and fasten it to the wall, away from the AC outlet.

    A ham radio operator told me once that if you place all those heavy power supplies (that are off to the side of the power strip) on an old aluminum cookie sheet--- e.g., about 9x12", it will act as a "heat sink," thereby dissipating the heat. This is especially wise when those bulky adapters/power supplies are on CARPET---they DO get pretty warm. In theory, they should last longer---heat is an electrical device's worst enemy. So maybe that tip will come in handy for you. As always, be sure to observe common-sense safety rules when using anything electrical like these short extension cords.
