I am just very disappointed by the quality of this. We had another outdoor cord that lasted many years, until someone accidentally short circuited it and melted the plug. Never have I seen the sheathing torn so easily - look for another brand unless you want to buy another one soon.
1. All ratings are very conservative, as they were tested based on the worse conditions anyone would expect to occur and then some.
2. Current (Amps) limitations are to prevent fire, due to heat build up. Dissapating heat is a major concern, hence all the vents you see and fans you hear in your PCs and other devices.
With that said a cable laying on the ground, outside, and not coiled up, is going to disapate heat much more easily than a cable coiled up or inside a wall, the later being a worst case scenario and one basis for the ampere ratings. More amps more heat. Note that the ratings are based on 30°C (86°F), thankfully fall is much cooler.
From NEC Table 400.5(A)(1) Allowable Ampacity for Flexible Cords and Cables [Based on Ambient Temperature of 30 °C (86 °F).
Lists 16 gauge wire for;
Condition A* = 10A (listed rating of this cord)
Condition B* = 13A
*Condition A: The allowable currents apply to 3-conductor cords and other multiconductor cords connected to utilization equipment so that only 3 conductors are current-carrying.
*Condition B: The allowable currents apply to 2-conductor cords and other multiconductor cords connected to utilization equipment so that only 2 conductors are current-carrying.
The 3rd conductor is ground and does not carry current under normal conditions, thus this cable would more accurately fall under Class B (13A). This would certify 12A use.
There is another factor, the voltage drop in the cable. This voltage is not available to the load (e.g, leaf blower) and, if too great, would affect it's operation. The voltage drop in the wire can be predicted using Ohm's Law (Volts= current x resistance).
So now we need the resistance of the cable.
The AWG (American Wire Gauge) lists 16 gauge wire having a resistance of 4.016 ohms per 1000ft. That converts to 0.4016 ohms for our 100ft cable.
Aplying Ohm's Law the voltage drop in the cable will be - 0.4016 ohms × 12 Amps = 4.82 volts.
This leaves 120v - 4.82v or 115.18v for the load. More than enough for normal operation.
Yes, this is sized correctly and will work for 12A use without issue. Good to go!
One final note on extension cords in general, especially if using a cord reel;
Regardless of current demand (12A, 10A, 8A, etc.), to prevent heat build-up that could very possibly melt the insulation and create a fire hazzard;
=============》 !!! UNWIND ENTIRE CABLE BEFORE USE!!! 《=============
Also, the plastic cover gets twisted after a while, making it really hard to store it tidly.
