Stinger (20-Amp Edison)
Stingers, also called leads, power cords, extension cords, or extension cables, are available to rent in a variety of lengths, measured in feet.
All of our stingers have Edison ends (also called NEMA 5-15P and NEMA 5-15R), and are 12-gauge (#12 AWG) 3-conductor SJOW cable, designed for durability and flexibility, even in freezing temperatures. They are designed to work with the most common US household power outlets and many generators.
For electrical safety, we recommend using extension cords/stingers only for temporary use, and with the following distance/amperage limits:
for 12 AWG Cables
|up to 50 ft
|up to 100 ft
|up to 150 ft
We do not advise using standard stingers/extension cords for distances over 150 feet, due to voltage drop. For longer runs and more complex and powerful distribution needs, we carry a complete line of power distribution cables and equipment with Camlok and Bates connectors.
