Simple electricity question

  1. We gonna start growning some nice buds in our little garden outhouse far down the back of the section.

    Just a question, if we run a 15 meter extension cord down to the outhouse to run 1 600w light from a normal wall outlet.

    Will everything be sweet or is it gonna overload on the extension cable or something??

  2. 1 x 600 w light on a 15 m extention plugged into a 13 amp socket should cause no probs but I would recoment armoured cable and run it through a 13 amp RCB as the cable is running outside.

    Don't use a normal cheap plug in type timer, contacts can fuse together causing lights to stay on. Use a proper rated relay.

    Hope this info useful
