U still have to pay for goods/services U agreed to — even if U did so only unconsciously.

So how is this a hot deal exactly?

I agree don’t feel it’s a hot deal looking at the cord. It does not look like it is rated for extreme cold weather either. Some say remain flexible but simply means it will not explode when it gets bellow -20.

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

Please explain what you mean by "exploding" and find a better price from a reliable retailer.
There is nowhere else to post deals other than here.

Ist has no cold rating.
2nd is a good price and comparable but picture shows 50 ft but lists as 30 metres.
Neither also don't mention if Resistant to oil and grease which is important for our usage.
Thanks

Home hardware shipping to store near our nothern getaway. More convenient as I or someone else can PU next journey.

Satisfied?
Even qualifies for free shipping if you don't want to pick it up.
Edit: sorry forgot oil and grease resistance. It's coated in rubber. What kind of corrosive grease is your outdoors covered in?

No amp, Cold ratings and likely not oil or grease resistant. Hardly similar!

No mention of oil and grease resistance.
Requires Costco membership and Home Hardware is Canadian unlike any other postings.
Thanks

I am sure the costco one is just as "oil and grease resistant" as the home hardware one.
I'm sure that you know someone with a costco card that can take you shopping there.
If not I would be more than happy to go with you so you can get the better extension cable at Costco

On the label it says flexible from -40°C to 75°C.

It also says 10 AMP 125 Volt so you can assume this is 16 AWG just like your cord above.

It's made of vinyl so it will resist oil and grease.

16 gauge wire at over 50' length is only rated for 10 amps. Standard house circuit is 15 amps. Depending on what you plug into it you might have a safety issue before it's even near loaded enough to trip the breaker.

One resource (or find others):
https://www.stayonline.com/product-reso ... pacity.asp

I highly recommend getting 12 gauge. This one's 12/3, outdoor rated, water resistant, 100', $55 including shipping, and you don't need a Costco card to order it online:
https://www.costco.ca/Prime-SJTW-123-10 ... 17480.html

Or if you do need oil resistance, more shopping required.

16/3 at this length (or really any length) is garbage. This is not a good deal.

Hopping into my time machine, back in december 2017 my local walmart had 50ft stanley 16/3 for 6$.
Needless to say I bought a few and while they aren't as long it was a better deal imo.

Is it a date?
Take your subjective word for it. But prefer to see the proof rather than speculation.
Why would anyself respecting rational person subject themselves to warehouses full of rampaging hordes risking injury?
