Extension Cord: Electrical Extension Cords
Get the power you need no matter where you are with electrical extension cords from Office Depot. Whether you're installing a temporary display outside or trying to get power to your computer from across the room, our extension cords will lengthen your power source and get your electronics going.
What's the right extension cord for you?
- If you're only plugging in lamps, desk lights or similar appliances, you just need a basic extension cord with enough room for the number of electronic devices you're plugging in.
- When you're plugging in computer equipment and electronics that require a lot of power to operate, choose an extension cord with "surge protection" so that power surges are handled and so that cord itself can handle the amount of power running through it.
- Since extension cords come in a variety of colors, you need to figure out if you're going to be able to see the cord or not after you install it. If the answer is "yes", try to choose a cord that's pleasing to the eye given its surroundings.
- Extension cords come in a variety of sizes so you may want to choose one that leaves little room after it's installed. This makes your workplace safer, since it leaves less cord to trip on, get in the way, etc.
Extension cords can save you time, effort and money. One of the biggest ways they can save you money is that you don't have to call an electrician to come out and install yet another outlet in your office when there may be an outlet just out of reach of the electronic device you need to plug in.
