you can see in the image it's got the ETL stamp. They're a standards body similar to CSA and UL.

thats a very light duty extension cord. be sure you really need 100 feet of cord before buying this because if you can get away with a 50 footer you will get much more usefulness out of the cord even though the rating is only 30% more current on the 50 footer. Longer really isn't better with extension cords, it just means less power makes it through and more birds nests to untangle unless you really need that length

ETL is a red flag to me. You'll find their stamp on shoddy products, either cause they failed CSA/UL or the company wanted to get the product to the market faster so they spent more $$$ to get it through with less rigorous testing (at least it seems)
I don't fail, I succeed at finding what doesn't work

These are perfect if you need to power some lights. 1250W can easily carry 12 100W incadescent bulbs ... even better if you have LEDs or even CFLs.
