332 of 364 people found the following review helpful Be careful if using with Kill-A-Watt - only rated for 10 amps!
By Glenn on December 19, 2008 Size: 1 Ft/.30 Meters
The product is okay if you're simply using it to release space in your surge protector or UPS that will otherwise be utilised by A/C adapters for mobile phones, Loudspeakers, ETC.
However, this cord is just rated for 10 amps. Regrettably that isn't disclosed any place in the marketing materials. Which means you are only able to apply it electrical loads as high as 10x125 volts = 1,250 W. If you were planning to make use of this having a Kill-A-Watt to determine, For instance, just how much electricity your refrigerator or microwave uses, well, don't do it because those appliances may draw more than 1250 W and overheat the wire, possibly creating a fire.
Precisely what it takes to be used using the Kill-A-Watt is definitely an extension cord that's rated for 15 amps or even more. That will permit safe transmission from the electricity within the extension cord without overloading it.20 Comments Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By WWJ on Next Month, 2013 Size: 1 Ft/.30 Meters
The outline includes "NEMA 5-15." This indicates it is rated as 15 Amps (and 1875 Watts at 125 Volts)the "15" in "NEMA 5-15" refers back to the amperage rating. (Begin to see the chart at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NEMA_connector#NEMA_nomenclature.) However, the product I received includes a tag attached that states it's with a rating of only 10 Amps. See my two images.
To look at the cable it might appear to become well-crafted and Top quality. However the attached "10A" tag means the inferior quality is incorporated in the gauge from the conductors. The cable is placed "18 AWG," i.e., 18 gauge, the utmost safe load which in this kind of three-conductor cable is 10 Amps. The specs "18 AWG" does come in the outline, but isn't directly recognizable as alluding to 10-Amp limit and is easy to overlook and/or disregard (when i did) in the existence of the immediately recognizable spec "NEMA 5-15" that signifies 15 Amps directly.
(Note: There is no simple chart for current capacity since there are many factors that need considerinG, including conductor material and Gauge, Insulation, ambient temperature, quantity of conductors bundled together, and Application conditions. Caution should be worked out in simplifyinG, but generally in typical household usage an 18 AWG three-conductor extension cord similar to this includes a rating of 10 Amps, because the attached tag states. For any rating of 15 Amps it will have to attend least 14 AWG. see, e.G.:

By Martin on September 23, 2011 Size: 6 ft/1.82 Meters
This extension cord is just rated for 13A, so be cautious when plugging devices into it (other electrical cords & power strips are rated 15A). Apart from that it's just as marketed.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback... Appreciate your feedback.If the review is inappropriate, Please tell us.

By Bbert73 on May 25, 2010 Size: 1 Ft/.30 Meters
I purchased a couple of those to release outlets on my small UPS which had transformers connected to it. It appears to become a top quality extension cord, and it states produced in China. But it's not just one feet long. If this stated 1 feet, I believed the particular cord was 1 feet lengthy(from plug to plug). It's not! The particular cord length, not calculating the plugs, is precisely nine inches lengthy. Apart from that, it serves its purpose.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Steve W on November 4, 2009 Size: 3 Ft/.91 Meters
I got myself a "Kill-A-Watt EZ" and make use of this 3' extension cable along with that. for background, the Kill a Watt EZ measures power use of anything connected to it and displays watts consumed and should you enter the local utility's cost per Kw it will explain what it is to function on the each day, monthly, each year basis. A possible problem is you plug it in to the wall and then your electricity consuming device in it, after, you need to get lower to deal with and knees to see the studying. A discomfort to complete. In making use of the system using the CTG 3' Outlet Saver Cord I've found it much simpler to make use of.
What else could you say in regards to a 3' extension cord...It is a well built cord your money can buy and will the job intended.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Nuk TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE on August 26, 2008 Size: 1 Ft/.30 Meters Simple but quite helpful product.
I've got a UPS and a couple of powerstrips in the home. They're great by supplying more outlets. But with the power adapters that runs the majority of the gadgets today, even certainly one of individuals power adapters can cover two to three outlets which defeats the objective of getting a powerstrip. The liberator solves this problem.
also, some power adapters could be huge and heavy that it is weight alone has a tendency to release it in the wall, the liberator works as a little extension to avoid it from loosening up. Loose connections are harmful, it may produce sparks that although ruin your equipments but may even starts a fireplace. Countertop receptacles may also be problematic where they're awkwardly situated sideways.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By healthcare advocate on Feb 3, 2008 Size: 1 Ft/.30 Meters
I've about 20 of those within my home, these serving for connecting AC outlets to a number of chargers, energy supplies, and the like. they are simply handy and allow you to get those large power supplies (like for printers/scanners) Off aside, and taken care of out of your power strips/surge protectors. This releases more outlets in your power strip for other cords. I used one on my patio---the short (1 feet) extension cord permitted me connect huge timer and Fasten it towards the wall, from the AC outlet.
A ham radio operator told me once that if you place all those heavy power supplies (which are off aside from the power strip) with an old aluminum cookie sheet--- e.G., about 9x12", it'll behave as a "heat sink," therefore dissipating heat. This is particularly wise when individuals bulky adapters/power supplies take presctiption CARPET---they are doing get pretty warm. theoretically, they ought to keep going longer---heat is definitely an electrical device's worst enemy. So perhaps that tip will be handy for you personally. of course, make sure to observe common-sense rules of safety when utilizing anything electrical such as these short electrical cords.Comment Was this review useful for you?
