Any time I used this I plugged it into my P3 P4460 Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor to keep track of how much I used it and how much current it was drawing and I was impressed. On a 120V circuit, the car draws a maximum of 12 amps, which comes out to 1,440 watts. The P3 P4460 typically showed about 118V and 11.6-11.7 amps, so over 50 feet this extension cord really did well.
In very low temperatures, below maybe 20 degrees, the cord did get pretty stiff, but never so stiff that it cracked, broke, or was difficult to coil up or un-coil. The connectors on each end also seem very well made and feel very sturdy.
After using this the way I did, charging for sometimes 10-15 hours on end, with so little current drop and lasting the way it did, I would certainly buy this again if I needed to.
If you need to run high-current tools on an extension cord, this is your answer. My previous cord (admittedly, it was 14 gauge) would get warm due to the higher resistance combined with high load, whenever I used tools like a circular saw, or especially if I ever plugged in a space heater. This cord never gets warm; the 15A breaker will trip before the cord becomes the bottleneck in the electrical path.
Bought this cord for the chainsaw and air compressor. I can run both of them at the same time on this cord -- it carries that many amps.
US Wire Heavy Duty cord is just what it advertises to be -- a top quality, made in America extension cord that will give you years and years of service. You cannot beat the price for this quality of extension cord. I actually found something made like things back in the days when manufacturers actually cared what they produced. Buy this -- you will not be disappointed.
I am very happy with my purchase.
The only drawback is not with the product but with my lawn mower chord holder (I can't think of the exact wording, but it's the thing that keeps your cord from getting unplugged but holding the cord), The cord holder is too small so I just make a knot on the handle.
Good deal, don't hesitate to buy.
