Can I Use Medium Duty Appliance Extension Cord with 6 Outlet Power Bar?
Posted 21 February 2012 - 11:51 PM
The power bar properties is the same 125V 15A 14 gauge as the medium duty appliance extension cord. Can I simple plug these 2 together and plug the extension cord into the wall socket?
Thanks a lot for the help! It's better to be safe than sorry!

Im using this to plug my power bar light fixture in my rubbermaid tubs into the power bar /w with extension cord into the wall socket. Im using CFLs so its less than 200W for lights and a few pc fans... does this help u more with the total wattage?
Medium duty is fine for this low of a wattage. You really only need heavy duty for long distances and high amperage devices.

The power bar I have and the medium duty extension cord can be connected together by putting the 3 prong into the 3 socket "prong" thing on the extension cord so I won't have to strip the wires and connect them.
The gauge is the exact same 14 gauge for both.. would this still be okay??
So would I be safe to plug my 200W of lights into a power bar (this is my light fixture for my rubbermaid growbox) that is plugged into another power bar that is grounded that is connected to the medium duty extension cord to the wall socket?
