necessary.Use of improper extension cord could result in risk of
fire, electric shock, or electrocution.
•An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or
American Wire Gauge) for safety.The smaller the gauge number
of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cable, that is 16 gauge
has more capacity than 18 gauge. When using more than one
extension to make up the total length, be sure each individual
extension contains at least the minimum wire size.
