Available in four lengths and an impressive 12 different colors, this cable is designed to match the decor of any user while also being extremely useful. Not only does this cord provide power to any device with a standard grounded cord, but also offers two high-speed USB ports to directly charge smartphones and other USB powered devices. Braided cord casing is tough enough to stand up to heavy use without wear.
The head of the cord is bulky, and may not fit well into outlets tucked away behind furniture or other objects.
We love the innovative space-saving features on this model, especially the rotating plug that allows users to thread the cord from another direction if one path to the outlet is blocked by furniture or other obstacles. With three available outlets for standard grounded power cords, it can handle users with several devices. Flat cord design can go under or around obstacles where other extension cables do not fit.
Designed to be as compact as possible, this 1' cord is shorter than many extension cables, and may not meet the length needs of some users.
This GE cord is available in black and white. Braided nylon cord casing looks great while being durable enough to avoid tangles and wear, even with frequent use. Many extension cords do not double as surge protectors, but this one does, so users can plug in high power devices like computers and televisions. Cord is longer and more durable than most surge protectors, meaning those devices can be plugged into outlets that are harder to reach without sacrificing safety.
Outlets are spaced more closely than on some surge protectors, which may cause a space issue for users with multiple power cords with large heads.
Folds easily for easy transport, making it useful in multiple rooms or for transporting small appliances like stereos to different locations. Works with any appliance with a standard two-pronged ungrounded power cord, freeing up surge protectors for use with more high-powered devices. Cord is available in multiple lengths, including up to an impressive 25', allowing users who need to power an appliance across an entire room to meet their needs.
Users who primarily need outlets for three-pronged grounded cords may not find this cord useful.
The vinyl casing offers protection from outdoor elements including rain, wind, dirt, and debris. Since outdoor extension cables are often used with corded power tools and exterior lights, the 20' provided by this cord can meet those needs. Casing is reinforced to prevent accidental bending or breaking.
Like many outdoor extension cables, the casing on this product contains lead, and indoor use should be avoided.
