Review: Coleman Cable 02309 16/3 Vinyl Outdoor Extension Cord
There are useful electric tools for every project in and around your home. But if you're going to be working with electric tools outside the home, then you need an extension cord that's specifically designated for outdoor use. With some extension cords, you have to forever keep stopping whatever you're doing to go back and plug up the connection again because it keeps coming loose. That's such a hassle. So if you have work to do and you hate wasting time, you need a cord that's tough - and one that will stay connected to whatever you attach it to. You need one like the Coleman Cable 02309 16/3 Vinyl Outdoor Extension Cord that has a snug fit into the outlet so that it won't keep disconnecting on either end. Of course the same irritation can happen if you use a short cord, but this extension cord has enough length at 100 feet so that it's long enough to be used with electric tools all over the yard. By having that amount of length, you save time. You won't have to unplug or replug into various outdoor outlets as you move from one end of the yard to the next. This cord is also kink resistant, which is handy so you won't waste time when unrolling it - and it's tough enough to be used with any yard job no matter what the terrain of your lawn is like. Thanks to the tough outer material, this cord won't soak up water, either - even if it happens to lie on damp grass or even if your automatic sprinklers catch it. The extension cord is tough enough to withstand scrapes, so if it drags along the ground and gets caught up by a stick or tree root, it won't wear away easily in places like some cords do. It's tough enough to handle repeated exposure to the sun and it won't get damaged - even if it sits out in the hot sun. Since this is an all purpose cord, it can be used with any electric tool. So you could easily use it for your electric saw when working in your garage or workshop. Then you can turn right around and use it to run your electric mower or lawn edger. The ends of the cord where you make the connection to other tools is made to resist water - and the opposite end has blades that are reinforced so they won't bend or get out of shape.
