We've ALL been there- you get your new computer on your desk where you want it, get everything arranged to your liking, and then go to plug it in and you scream- you're 4 inches from outlet.
Or you unbox your new printer and put it on the nice credenza you bought for it, and go to plug it in, and find the cord is about 2 feet too short to reach your nice surge protector.
Solid Cordz has the answer for you: their 6 foot Universal Power Cord!
This standard power cord is designed to work with most PCs, monitors, scanners, printers and other devices that use the 3-pin shroud power connector. The cords are fully rated for 125 volt/10 Amp applications, to easily supply power to your equipment, with greater flexibility of moving it to where you really want it!.
The cords feature an AC style plug (NEMA 5-15P) on one end and a computer style receptacle (IEC-320-C13) on the other end. The female connector plugs directly into the device while the male connector plugs into a standard outlet. The cords are simply remove your cord and replace with the Solid Cordz Extension Cord! Easy peasy!
In my case, I needed to be able to move my printer from in front of the window ac to the opposite end of the credenza. With the new 6 ft cord, it was easy peasy! Now it's not blocking part of the ac return - win win for everybody!
Another product that has been a HUGE help in the kitchen is the Solid Cordz 6 foot extension cable is the solution to your electronics and power equipment reaching problems. This sturdy and long-lasting 72-inch length extension wire can give your room a clean and organized look. The cable is thicker than the usual which houses a 16 AWG wire.
FYI, basing upon the AWG, the lower the number of the gauge, the thicker the wire and the more energy the cord is able to carry. This means that a gauge 12 wire is thicker and has larger wattage than a gauge 14 wire. SO now you know!
The purpose of the Premium 6 Foot Extension Cord is to make unreachable outlets accessible and at range at all times. With its bendable property, reaching power strips and outlets are easily made possible. Our product has easy grip ends which ensures no grounding problems and proven safe. The cables are fully rated for 125 volt/13 Amp applications.
Ever wonder why kitchen appliances have such SHORT cords nowadays? It's because modern kitchens have MORE outlets, closer together, so you don't need long cords.
But what about us with older houses, and lucky if we have 2 outlets at all?
For example, we have coffee pot and toaster on one outlet, stove plugged into another, and the other has the phone and mixer/crock pot. With counter space also at a bare minimum, a 8-10 inch appliance
cord, is NOT going to work in our kitchen.
With the Solid Cordz 6 foot extension cable, I can plug my coffee bean grinder or iced coffee maker into the cable, and be able to have more than enough length with the cable to reach the outlet! Now I don't have to MOVE everything around to try to reach the outlet, and have to use an appliance, UNDER the counter! WHEW! These cords have been life savers in the kitchen!
We have also used one with the vacuum cleaner, as we have a triangle section of the living room that can only be reached by using an outlet in a far corner, that is behind the heavy sofa. By plugging in one of these extensions, we can make use of that outlet and really vacuum that corner well now! No spots are missed. Plus we can now add a corner light, where before we couldn't reach the outlet. YEAH!
Here is another extension cord tidbit: as the cord gets longer, the current carrying capacity of the cord gets lower. For example: a gauge 16 extension cord less than 50 feet in length can power a 1625 watt (W) appliance while a gauge 16 extension cord longer than 50 feet can only power an appliance up to 1250 watts.
