I was looking for an extension cord to make a long run for my xmas lights and saw that Walmart.com has red, 14/3 WorkChoice extension cords on clearance. They are ETL listed.

If you don't know the difference between 16/3 cord and 14/3 cord, the following is for your reading pleasure:

Probably wouldn't try it with 14/3 @ 100ft, but 14 gauge should be adequate if you only need 50ft.

Problem is, this isn't a cold weather cord so it's most likely going to get stiff as hell below freezing.

Yea it still says recommended for indoors. It looks like it would be very stiff. Great for lights as mentioned.

In for 2 if each. See you on the front page!

It was a little over $48 shipped for both.

We have only two 100' cords coming from amazon and they were almost $42 just the two of them....

Valid points. However if the cord is stored indoors it would work for a fairly short job. While the snow blower was on it would slightly heat the cord and keep it somewhat movable.

Definitely do not store outdoors. That would lead to this most likely cracking and deteriorating. Not bending could be the smallest problem.

This would provide better power than a 16 gage cord.

16 wire is not thick enough for a lot of wattage. 14 is sufficient for almost anything. It has to do with how thick the wire is. House wiring is 14 gage for 15 amp circuits 12 gage for 20 Amp 10 gage for 30 Amp like a Water Heater. 16 gage not used except for speakers if those are wired.

You lose power over the length of the wire. So the longer the cord the thicker it should be. 100' should be 14 gage for almost anything except christmas lights. This would not be good for them as it is not outdoors. Even a corded drill will work better with 14 gage than 16 gage.

I wouldn't run any kind of significant power tool with this cord (even the 50'), especially those with longer-duration runs. So, leaf blowers, snow blowers, heck even sanders, grinders. I'm not even sure I'd run a circular saw. You risk motor and/or cord damage all because you cheaped out on the cord.
