It turns your indoor outlet into a anywhere (within 50ft) outlet.

What can I say about a humble extension cord that hasn’t been said already. This Amazon Basics one is just as functional as any other cord.
It arrived loosely wrapped but in good condition. No bent prongs and contained all the “This will hurt you if you play with it wrong” labels. Those are always helpful. It's UL listed so you probably won’t be electrocuted if you walked on it (disclaimer: your mileage may vary). This baby has all those sweet bells and whistles, but wait! There's more.
My family is forgetful and accident prone. We have left this bad boy outside during a hurricane, parked our car on it, my kids have been behaving better since its arrival, it’s been caught in doors, drawers, windows, hooks, couches, rails, and nails and yet, it still performs as intended. Has powered everything from drills, electric weed eaters, miter saws, circular saws, and even my phone charger when I needed a little extra reach to my bed while searching for more house projects for my husband to complete or when my husband has been hiding from my projects with Reddit while in the bathroom for 2 hours.
It’s your classic bright orange color which is easy to find in your junk corner, closet, or workshop. It doesn't fit in your junk drawer however. I was going to take a star for that but couldn't be bothered, just like I can't be bothered to clean the junk drawer. You can wrap it up neatly, and as all good quality cords will do, it will promptly tangle itself all over again. Probably the only item I’ve purchased for the fact that it is 50ft long, but that I'm willing to settle for 15ft, over the fact I can’t be bothered to untangle it when I’m in a hurry to finish a project.
Excellent purchase. Fair price. Gives you power everywhere you need it most and doesn’t give you a hard time if you occasionally forget about it. I mean, there really isn't much to say about an extension cord. It’s a household, nostalgically bright orange, staple to keep on hand, in your truck, or next to your bed if your wife's into that kind of thing.
Solid purchase. 10/10 would recommend.
