It is only 14/3. I thought the cable was 12/3. I pass
same way i knew what cords were light and heavy duty as a kid... because my parents were parents and taught me.
doing the people around you a real disservice making things idiot proof.

light duty things are perfectly viable options and meant for what they're meant for. besides the jacketing is the more important bit here...
How can you control that someone in your family may use it as a piece of a long daisy chain of power cord extensions? I rather prevent it from happening right now by not buying it than any incident can happen.

I thought so too. They can get away with putting 15 Amp on a 25' 14/3 cord and be alright. But normally u see 15 am and more times than not it's 12/3

bulk SJTW 14/3 is rated to 18A, per UL62...
what are you worried about, especially at 25ft?

Agreed on these statements. I always knew this on thick or heavy cords and high/constant current tools vs longer cords etc. My dad had me feel cord ends for warmth.

Elaborate on jacketing. Curious. Seems important, just don't know differences.

25 ft 12 gauge is 19.98 at home depot

https://www.homedepot.com/p/25-ft.../319910706

if anyone thinks for 4 extra, 12 gauge is worth it

I've been using a 50' 14awg cable occasionally to run a weed whacker and a 6hp wet vac. From the research I've done, that should have been sufficient. Am I missing something or are the comments about 14awg cables only about safety when people who don't understand the cable guages and use the wrong one?

For a wet vac or weed whacker, 14awg would be sufficient and for most home appliances/tools. Using this for a table saw, miter saw or other high amperage tools (which this brand commonly is known for) would be pushing it past its limit.

So long as folks don't put more than 12A or 80% of 15A on this then 14/3 should be ok. Even 15A and even a bit more for a few minutes should be fine but best to play it safe and not go there. But the people who'll put a 3-way extender on this and plug in 2 space heaters and a mini fridge are the same people who'd do this with a 16/2 extension cord. Stupid is stupid and there's no known cure for it except the one that some stupid people impose on themselves by being stupid.

how much current are you drawing? issue is most people dont know how much current is being drawn and over load the cable. By NEC code, 15A circuit breaker will protect 14/AWG, and 20 ampere circuit breaker will protect 12/AWG. problem is, if you plug 14/AWG into 20A circuit breaker, say your cable will draw 19A, circuit breaker will not trip, your cable will burn cause current is above its rating. So now you gotta know if you are connecting to 15A breaker or 20A breaker. with 12 gauge, it does not matter, you are safe (15A or 20A breaker will trip before cable starts melting/fire). but with 14 gauge, you need to know which breaker you connecting to. bottom line, 12AWG is safe because average folk dont need to know which receptacle is 15A or 20A. with 14 AWG, need to be more careful. but as long as you understand what you are doing, you are safe with 14 AWG.

Any single device that draws more than 15A continuously will not plug into this because by law it'll have a 5-20P plug on its cord, unless you use an adapter, which is illegal and stupid. But, agreed that if you're going to use something that approaches 15A, you'd best use a shorter 14/3 cord or a 12/3 one for such a length.
