Outdoor Cables, Power Cables, Power Cords


There are different types of power cords for different types of functions, and it might be intimidating trying to figure out which one it is that you really need. Is your power cable safe for use outdoors? Cables.com manufactures outdoor cables that are sure to withstand the toughest weather. 

While leaving your extension cords unplugged out in the rain might not ruin them, the added wear and tear will render your extension cord unusable in only a short time. There’s also the risk of fire or electrocution if a wet cable is handled before the plug is allowed to dry. Whether you’re powering your hobby or your livelihood, it’s important to invest in safe, reliable cables like the ones you can find on Cables.com that are intended particularly for outdoor use.

Water-Resistant Outdoor Power Cables

Watertight power cord sets are available for use in virtually any situation where cords need to be connected to equipment that is outside or subject to wet conditions such as water leaks, rain, snow, and flooding. In some situations, such as outdoor lighting or agricultural irrigation an outlet is desired that isn't dependent on a building for protection from moisture. In other scenarios, simply running a power cord through damp soil or snow can cause damage to the cord. In either case, a watertight power cord provides peace of mind and an extra level of protection against moisture-related problems.

An outdoor power cord like our L6-20 Watertight Extension Cable, for example, is rated for 20 amps and 250 volts. Manufactured explicitly for use outdoors, it's sure to hold up even in dire weather. 

However, if you’re looking for something that can take a little more power, consider sizing up to an L5-20 extension cable rated for 20 amps, capable of handling 250V and available between six and 100 feet in length on Cables.com. If it’s an L5-30 watertight power cord you need for the job, you can stay right here for a solid extension cord just as resistant to oil, water, and dirt as the others you’ll find on Cables.com. For 30A and 250V between six and a hundred feet in length, capable of withstanding the worst weather your patio can throw at you, you won’t find a better deal.
