A very heavy duty and well made product.
Fred Zendell
So if you only plug in equipment to the 120V outlets, you really only have a 2500 watt generator.
RJB
Better to have it, and not need it.... Great Product!

This cord/splitter item is critical to make full use of many 120/240V home use generators. Say you have a 5000 Watt 120/240V generator. This means it has two separate 2500 Watt 120V windings. Many generators give you a single 240V outlet and two or three 120V outlets. However, all the 120V outlets are wired to the same winding on the generator. So if you only plug in equipment to the 120V outlets, you really only have a 2500 watt generator. If you load it up with too many connected items, it won't stall... but the single 120V winding in use will eventually melt/fail. Using this L14-30P 4 prong plug with 2 - 120V outlets allows you to use the 240V outlet on your generator and convert it to two 120V oulets, but each one is now connected to a different winding on your generator. You can take power from both windings in your generator and use the unit to its full capacity. Using this cord with a couple of "triple taps" would allow you to plug in 6 household items and spread that load evenly over both windings in your generator.

Ace Heavy Duty Triple Tap (FA-148/15)

Is it unfair that you have to buy this somewhat (~$25) expensive (but very sturdy) "cord" to fully utilize your generator that you paid so much for in the first place ? Maybe so....but at least it solves the problem easily! You can check your generator's owner manual to see if all the 120V outlets are attached to only one winding. Some more expensive units may have 120V outlets on both windings. However, I have a fairly expensive Yamaha 6600, and all my 120V outlets are on one winding / one breaker.

This splitter has a L14-30P plug that connects to the 240V/30 Amp socket on my PowerMax/DuraMax XP4400E generator. The other end is a Y-adapter that has two NEMA 5-15 or 5-20 120V outlets that can be used to draw 15 Amps (5-15) or 20 Amps (5-20). There is an LED in each of the outlets, so you know when it is live.

As stated my RJB "Engineer at Large" in his excellent review of this product, using the 240V/30A output from the generator is the best way to ensure that both windings on the generator are used equally.

The only thing I want to add to his review is the Y-adapter is built well, has 10-gauge wire at the L14-30P end (necessary/required for 30A), but has 12-gauge wire at the 5-15/20 end, which is sufficient for 20A.

This is a great buy and solves the power problem. this splits the 240 1ph to two 110v stnd house plug ins. Now I can run two 18 amp grinders off the generator and not blow the breaker. it takes 110v from each side of the windings on the genset.
Results in more power!! arh arh arh! This is the only cord you need for portable power. Great price too

This adapter is solidly built and fits perfectly in the DuroMax Elite MX4500 generator's (also purchased thru Amazon) 4-prong 250V female socket. Allows use of the generator's two 125V windings to take full potential of the generator's max output. Adapter is a little stiff when first used due to the heavy gauge wire construction. Lighted 15/20 Amp female connectors (when current flows) are a nice touch. Would purchase again.

Due to flooding and power outages this year I decided to invest in a portable generator. I need to run two sump pumps during heavy downpours. This splitter allows me to do that. Yes, it works.

i seldom write reviews but though i would in this case because
their is so much confusion concerning Home Power Generators and
their accessories.. the Conntek Y adapter is in use on my Honda
6500is generator and allows me to convert the 240volt 4 wire
receptacle to 2 seperate 20amp receptacles by simply pushing
the 120/240 rocker switch to 240 only ..This leaves the 30amp
R.V 3 wire receptacle and 2 20amp receptacles open.Esentially the
adapter allows the user full use of the generators power. However
you must balance the generators load because their are 2 seperate
electrical circuits on this type of generator..A simialr option
can be done through the 30amp receptacle which is a 3 wire plug
with-out the load balance problem ..In any case , you can't beat
the price for the quality. For those interested in a Home Power
Generator that works flawlessly and is incredibly quiet, This is
it ..I did make 1 change to the generator by converting it to a
Tri-fuel setup so i could use Propane which is so much cleaner &
Safer & cheaper than gasoline...Anyway , Goodluck with the plug,
StaySafe..

These Y-adapter cords can be very expensive and very difficult to fabricate yourself. This one was about $18.00 and too good to not get. It is built very solidly and worked great.
