Is it safe to run your cables outside? Most extension cables and network patch cords are built for indoor use only. Attempting to use them outdoors can result to damaged cords or devices in the best case, and personal injury in the worst. Make sure you're purchasing watertight and weather resistant cables if you plan to install them outdoors.

Outdoor Power Cables

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 that are intended particularly for outdoor use.

An outdoor power cord like this L6-20 Watertight Extension Cable is rated for 20 amps and 250 volts.
