How to Pick the Perfect Winter Extension Cord

Flexible Outdoor Cords

Outdoor extension cords are handy to have around the house - until the temperature drops below freezing.

Your electric cord may have worked well with your string trimmer all summer long, but it's practically worthless in the winter.

If you get an electric snow blower, we strongly recommend getting an extension cord that literally won't freeze up.

Coleman claims their Polar/Solar outdoor extension cord can withstand temperatures as low as -67F, so we put it to the test.

Winter Extension Cords
Since it doesn't get that cold outside, we did the closest thing. We stuffed it inside the freezer for a week!

We were shocked and surprised by the results.

The cord stayed flexible. It felt just like an ordinary extension cord at room temperature. You won't lose any flexibility - even on the coldest days.

This Extreme cord is perfect for electric snow throwers. It comes in 50- and 100-foot lengths, so you can clear your driveway all the way to the curb.
