Just to add 50ft is basically the limit for low amp devices on 16g wire. If tour looking to say handle 12 amp and below for 50-100ft get 14g.

OP deal seems good but I would not trust this in winter. seems like the same cheap stuff menards sells on black friday/holidays as flexible to negative 40c. When harbor freight is more flexible in the same weather your kind of bottom of the barrel. Imo having 100ft of 14g is best for low amp devices that need good range to reach front and back yard from one outlet (all your common stuff; blower/vac/mulcher, edger, drill, most mowers, etc.). If you try to go only with 12g (smart on paper since it handles everything basically) the weight and size become an issue (standard reel handles 150ft 16g, 100ft 14g, or 50ft 12g, so you need tow reels for 2x50ft@12g or a really big one for 100ft 12g).

16 gauge 50 foot cords are good to 13 amps and 100 ft electrical cords are good for up to 10 amps, which will cover 90% of the average homeowner's tools.. short bursts of over 10 amps won't kill anything, it's the extended use of higher amperage that will cause the cord to melt and burn.. items that consume more power like a table saws will be a bit lethargic but still functional cutting lighter things.

14 gauge it's 18 amps up 50 foot and 13 amps up to 100 ft.. if you wish to utilize the full potential of an outlet you'll need 10 gauge cord at 100 foot.

Thats why you normally have to refer to your instructions that came with the item (as you said table saw wont perform optimally and noted short bursts... typically people wont mow a lawn or edge or vacuum leaves in short bursts). I have not seen any mfg ship 10 amp products stating you can use 16 gauge at 100ft. They have a wire Gauge ft calculator that's more specific to the device (again optimal or them being safe, i trust they know what they are doing vs trying to make you buy a bigger cable lol).

For instance the devices i noted mentioned not using 16 gauge at 100ft and none of those exceed 12 amps with most being 10 amps. Notice I did not include table saw but a 12 gauge wire at 50ft only should handle 15 amps fine without needing to go to 10 gauge. 10 gauge is less common, but of course with the internet you can find it easy, but walk onto walmart and it wont be there on the shelf for good reason.

last thing was finding 16 gauge wire at 100ft seemed more unlikely. if harbor freight wont carry it (they have heavy arse electric fly swatters for gosh sakes lol) than I think its utility is way more limited for good reason.

...this is an in store clearance deal, not available online. That's why there's a brickseek link to check local inventory.

How about 5k btu window unit off of a generator? I would like to run a unit in the opposite end of the house when in a blackout.

Here since I'm just an ignorant maintenance electrician I'll let Home Depot correct you http://www.homedepot.com/c/factor...s_HT_BG_EL

100 ft of 12ga can handle 14-15amps, I live in the country and even in nearby towns we don't mow our lawns with electric mowers.. the battery/electric thing are big city fads.

So you can dance all around it and throw out tons of examples but in the end common sense goes a long ways, if the cord gets hot near the outlet then you need a larger gauge cord.. if it catches on fire outside it's most likely not going to hurt much.

Not sure what the issue is or where you think I said the THICKER 12 GAUGE is bad at 100ft for 15 amps.

I said 16 gauge is not useful over 50ft and many 10amp devices state not to use 16guage over 50ft...

again the link you provide is not what the mfg will spec out. i also don't see them noting to use 16gauge over 50 ft for anything really useful, and even than your better off with 14 Gauge unless its a specific purpose. so what was your point in correcting me again? you said originally 16guage over 50ft is fine and I am contesting its not per mfg documentations I have read.

Home depot wont handle the warranty claim so they can give generalizations all they want.

edit to add.

so this will work with a 16 gauge at 100ft. 7.5 amps. a lpt pn home depots search results show 12 amps though

http://www.homedepot.com/p/BLACK-.../203630127

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Greenw.../203240634

the lost goes on. 16 gauge is very limited and some of the 'light duty' examples literally come often in much higher amos. if you have xmas lights that need a 100ft run I guess that will save you cash and be good for that exclusively.

For anyone who is looking at having one good for all extension cords I recommend 100ft 12guage. more practically a 50ft 12 gauge and 100ft 14gauge will cover pretty much anything you would want to do normally that requires a tear down end of day. 14 gauge will be much easier to handle for the majority of your long runs and provide adequate power to not worry about hurting the components with insufficient power.

seriously not sure at all why you would cheap out on the cord/gauge to run MULTIPLE pieces of equipment. the equipment could suck pr ne top pf the line but the cord should not change so thats where investing more is good vs being 'ok' with 16 gauge. but lets lump Christmas lights with a lawn mower and blower/vac/mulcher to prove our awesome electrician knowledge point lol. I have no clue how people in the biz agree cutting corners is the way to go. further they readily tell others thats the way to go. some smhucks going to have a dead mower and wonder why all their electrical equipment keeps 'burning up'. they will buy higher end and still have 'issues' but some electrician said its A-OK! It must be since they are a pro! lmao.
