I’ve got a short review for you of a product I bought for myself that I had to share as they’re just extremely useful. We all know what an extension cord is and they can be useful but these are only 1 foot or 12 inches long. You might wonder what could you do with such a short cord, well these help when plugging in multiple power adapters that are the large square kind into a power strip. If you’ve plugged these power blocks or wall warts into a power strip you’ll know they usually cover over one or more of the other plugs leaving you with unused outlets, these extension cords solve that problem by extending the outlets and not letting the power blocks overlap so you can use all the outlets in the power strip. You can also connect multiple cords together if need be. I love these, I think they’re just a great product really, well worth the price. The thing about these is that they’re well made, when buying a power cord or extension cord you need to make sure they’re quality as you don’t want bad cords as fire is bad. These are UL certified and you can really feel the quality of them, they’re thick and heavy duty. The cables are 16awg which means they’re nice and thick and able to handle up to 13amps which is good enough for most household items. Read on to learn more…

There are 10 of these cables that come in a nice looking box actually. Inside of the box you’ll find the cables inside of a plastic zip style bag which works fine to keep them together during shipping. The cables all have multiple tags on them with warnings, certifications and specs listed for you, you can remove these tags of course if you want as the larger one is rather unsightly and just really huge. Each cable is 12 inches long but you can connect them together if you want to make a longer extension cord which could come in handy. The cords are thick and slightly stiff but you can still bend them and maneuver them wherever you need to. I got these specifically to use with my entertainment center as having all sorts of entertainment and gaming equipment in one spot isn’t the best when it comes to power strips and having numerous wall warts plugged in.
Each cable comes with a plastic cap over the power connector which I think is a nice addition and they can be reused with other cables if you want to.
These cables are simple to use, truly plug and play and you can use them for virtually anything in your home really, you just may have to watch the amperage, but I don’t think it’s an issue as most people will be using these for similar to what I’m doing, small devices really.
This is one of those products that I absolutely love, they’re just so useful and versatile.
As far as price, I paid $20 for 10 of these which comes out to $2 each and I think they’re well worth it as they are well made cables but not only that, they’re just extremely useful, I just love them really.
I can highly recommend the Etekcity power extension cords.
