MasterPlug Extension Cord Reels

according to the specs and this chart, these cords appear woefully undersized/overrated.

The 50ft Metal Reel for $75 is 15A and has 12 gauge wire. Which is the last row of your little table. The 3rd column says that is the recommended gauge.

Woot needs to try harder. The 80ft reel, $59.99 here, is $62.99 at the mothership - from a third-party (no sales tax, 5.3% in Bristol VA) and fulfilled by Amazon with one-day Prime shipping for me, even though I am not in a big city. 18 cents less and I get it sooner.


On the “lead only “ reels, How many feet of 12 gauge extension cord will it hold?

I have 75 feet of #12 on the metal one. It should hold a full 100’. The reel is ok overall. But don’t expect anything heavy duty.

  • AWG 14 Gauge Cable (12 Gauge Cable on both the USB and metal models)

So, is the 50’ w USB 12 Ga. cable? Amazon lists it as 14 Ga.

I got one on an open box deal before and it doesn’t hold all of mine. I don’t know how long it is exactly but I would estimate only about 30ft fit on the reel
