Your Guide to Identifying Premium Long Extension Cords
In the world of extension cords, longer is always better. By choosing a bigger length, you’ll enjoy more versatility and the chance to use the same product in the completion of numerous projects. But what does it take to select the best long extension cord out there?
At Bad Ass Extension Cords, we know a thing or two about quality. Here’s what to look for if you want to get top quality at a reasonable price.
Starting with the Obvious: Length
A long extension cord is first and foremost characterized by its length.
If you know what size you need on a regular basis, choose one that’s slightly bigger (or even a lot bigger) than that. That’s how you ensure versatility, no matter what kind of equipment the situation calls for.
In our collection, you’ll find products that reach up to 100 feet. Numerous 50-foot and 75-foot choices are also available. Just browse through the product selection to compare and pinpoint the one that’s best suited to your needs.
Insulation and Jacketing
Depending on the intended use, the quality of the jacketing is probably THE BIGGEST safety consideration.
But don’t worry, we have you covered, no matter what your plan entails. Our industrial grade PVC insulation and jacket remain intact and highly flexible in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit. If you plan to use the product at a temperature even lower than that, opt for a Pro Lock cord with an elastomer jacketing that’s super flexible to temperatures of -58 degrees Fahrenheit.
Additional Safety Features
Working with electricity means you have to be extra-vigilant at all times. The best options give you access to safety features that will further reduce the risk of accidents.
Take our patented continuous ground monitoring system as an example. The male end of each product will glow amber to indicate that it is powered. The female end glows green to provide indication of safe grounding. If any of the light indicators go out, you’ll need to do a check. Also, they are always brightly colored to prevent trips, slips and other kinds of accidents.
Tough, Molded Connectors
Finally, pay attention to the quality of connectors, if you want a very sturdy and safe product.
Every connector used is equipped with reinforced, nickel-plated prongs. Nickel guarantees conductivity while also keeping the connector from corroding. This is the biggest difference between our products and standard copper-plated prongs. In addition, our connectors are molded on and they’ll never pull away from the body of the item.
