  • Extension Cords - Is This Safe?

    Hey Guys,

    I am running a bunch of stage lights, foggers, audio gear, etc.

    I bought a large bulk lot of 12 gauge extension cords on eBay, so I figure I can use these to run all of my stuff. 

    Is it safe though to run 12 gauage extension cords to lighting and audio gear that might only be 2 or 3 amps? Can you do any harm running too thick of an extension cord to a low power device? Thanks!

    You can not have too thick a cable.  Too thin can be a problem.
