Probably not a good cord selection for that.

What's the current rating on the aerator?

100' copper cord continuous load with 5% voltage drop:
1-6A - 16AWG
7-11A - 14AWG
12-18A - 12AWG

If you really need 100ft of outdoor cord get something thicker than this. I would get at least 12 or 10g for such a long length. It probably wouldn't be safe to use this for anything but the lowest power draws. Harbor freight has good prices.
This person has no idea what they are talking about. If you run an excessively high amp draw on too thin of a wire, the wire heats up and can melt the insulation.

There is a safety concern using too small of a wire. Don't exceed about 10A with this cord. Lights and many single power tools are fine. An electric pressure washer or big miter saw is asking too much.
For LED Christmas lights it should be absolutely fine as long as you aren't trying to power some huge display.

Lighting is one of the best use cases for a thin cord like this.

At 500' with a 16AWG cord you shouldn't exceed about 1 amp to have less than a 5% voltage drop.
You can get a Kill-A-Watt meter to easily see how much current is being drawn.

Don't go over the 10a it's rated for and it has enough surface area not to break the 75c heat rating of the jacket. Although since it's an extension cord and not rated for permanent installation I definitely wouldn't run 10a through it 24/7 and you are looking at a 7-12 percent voltage drop depending on what amalgamation of metals they used in their wires, since I'm sure it's not Ofc. So if using something that's voltage dependant you could lose some power there... Think like a 10a circular saw trying to cut 1.5in plywood... But you typically wouldn't need 100ft of extension cord for such a thing.
All things considered it has its own place and purpose. Electric weed whacking is the first thing that comes to mind.

I agree that if you're going to spend money on an outdoor extension cord that's 100 ft, I would not go any thinner than a 12 gauge. If possible I would get a 10 gauge. Sure this then Court could be useful for a very small fan at the end of a hundred foot, but if you have an extension cord it's nice to be able to plug in your electric weed eater or lawn mower or power saw or whatever it is that you want and not have to worry about....
when I was at Sam's Club last, they had some 12 gauge 100 ft same brand yellow jacket for about 40 bucks. that's really cheap...

Can anyone give me an opinion on using this outdoors for Xmas lights? It would be about 5x100 light strands, per cord.

I don't completely buy that there is no safety hazard but I do know that you can damage your equipment on the other end if there is not enough power.

There should really be a disclaimer with these long thin cords when they sell them and when people post deals for them.

As someone who learned this the hard way running a leaf blower off a thinner extension cord, definitely agree. I found out when I started seeing arcing and burn marks where the blower was plugged to to the cord. Threw out both afterward out of caution.
