Watertight Weather Resistant Power Extension Cable
Whether you’re operating your power tools for some overdue landscaping out in the front yard or putting in some work on that old boat on the dock, it’s important to be using the right power cord.

Is it safe to use your extension cables outside? Most extension cables are built for indoor use only. While leaving them unplugged out in the rain won’t 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.
Whether you’re operating your power tools for some overdue landscaping out in the front yard or putting in some work on that old boat on the dock, it’s important to be using the right power cord. Light-duty extension cords are intended only for use inside the home, and extensive exposure to the elements adds to the wear and tear on your equipment. A proper outdoor extension cable is essential if you intend to get the most out of your gear, and for playing it safe besides, reducing the odds of fire or electrocution. It's important to exercise caution when working with electronics in wet environments, and just as important to make sure your tools are the right ones for the job. Before you get down to work on that big project, shop at Cables.com for watertight extension power cords in a variety of lengths and voltages.
L5 Extension Cords
You can start your search by taking a look at our bright yellow and easy-to-spot L5-15 15A watertight extension cords, suitable for many indoor and outdoor home projects. These cords are available on Cables.com at affordable rates based on length. These extension cables feature a NEMA L5-15 3-prong locking power plug and are available in lengths from six to fifty feet long. The NEMA 5-15 power receptacle is the most common in North America, so this extension cable should be capable of handling most everyday needs.
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.
L6 and L7 Extension Cords
Is it an L6 or an L7 rather than an L5 power cord extension you need? Cables.com carries those as well! Like with our L5 cables, you can find L6 power cables suitable for 15, 20, and 30 Amps. Our L6-15 and L7-15 can be purchased in lengths of 6, 10, 15, 25, and 50 feet for an affordable 250V.
