My System Specs

Default Lightweight and tough power AC cable extension

When travelling being mobile, I use a thick tough blue outdoor 3 prong extension cable. It is kinda heavy.

It is ten feet and just long enough for my needs.

I am looking for something lighter.

What do you guys use to power a laptop? Max 200wats I think is good

My System Specs


Walmart has a black stanley 3 plug (3 prong) extension that's not rated for appliances, but should be more than enough for a laptop. Added benefit is the flush mount socket design.

Depending on the connector, you could just get a longer cord?
