Q: Hello Jim. Question:What is the sheathing on the 30 amp 4 prong,25ft. power cord made of? Is similar to the very flexible rubber sheath found on some extension cords or is it made of the not so flexible plastic sheathing found on basic home wiring romex?
by Anthony from New York on February 14, 2013

A: The outer jacketing on the generator power cords are SJTW type.

S: Service Grade
J: 300 Volts or Less
T: Thermoplastic Material
W: Weather Resistant, Sun Resistant & Wet Locations

This is a heavy duty cord but very flexible for a cord this thick.

by Mike, Product Expert

Q: My generator is 8kW. The manual calls for a "NEMA L14-30" cord, but the specs on this cord say "7500 watt max". Why? Will this cord work?
by Richard from Connecticut on December 05, 2012

A: The outlet on your generator that you will be plugging into will be 30A with a maximum wattage output capacity of 7500 watts. So, the overall generator output size doesn't matter.

All 30A connections, cords, inlet boxes and switches are rated for a maximum of 7500 watts due to Ohms Law (Amps x Volts = Watts).

30A cord ratings are 30A x 250V = 7500W

30A outlet ratings are 30A x 250V = 7500W

30A switch ratings are 30A x 250V = 7500W

Yes, this cord will work with your 8000 watt generator.


by Mike, Product Expert

Q: I have 7KW generator at about 35' from the box. Would I be able to connect two cables in order to extend the line without loosing much voltage/ power or risking performance in any way? Is 25' the only length available? Thank you!
by Ivo from New Jersey on September 26, 2012

A: It is not recommended to connect two generator cords together, one length is best.

These cords are available in longer lengths...click link below for models available....

30A Power Cords

by Mike, Product Expert

Q: I have a GP7500e generac purchased from EGD - Now looking for power cable. 30 amp Cent. Wire & Cable (25ft) listed without max wattage? Also most other 30 amp cables at 7200 max watt. Does this restrict my 7500 watt genrator in any way?? What other options do I have??
by Robert Peemes from New Jersey on July 21, 2012

A: Yes, the maximum wattage on this model is 7500 watts which matches perfectly with the Generac GP7500E since you are connecting to the 30A outlet which also has a maximum wattage capacity of 7500 watts.

All 30A connections, outlets, cords, inlet boxes and switches have a maximum wattage capacity of 7500 watts due to Ohms Law - Amps x Volts = Watts.

by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Will the Century Wire & Cable (4-prong 25 ft) generator power cord work with a Briggs & Stratton 8000 watt generator (30471) and Reliance Controls 30 amp power inlet box?

by Rob from Kentucky on June 22, 2012

A: Yes, this is the perfect cord to work with the 30471 8000 watt generator. Even though the cord and inlet box have a maximum wattage capacity of 7500 watts, you are still connecting to the 30A outlet on the generator which also has the same 7500 watt max output.

The rule of thumb when sizing a generator it so size it to 80% of the running capacity so the unit has the flexibility to handle starting loads without overloading the generator.

An 8kW unit is the perfect size when connecting to 30A equipment.

by Mike, Product Expert

Q: JIm,

I have a Generac xp8000e generator. I want to buy a 25' 4 prong cable but see that they are only rated up to 7500 wats. For the 8000 watt with 10k w surge on the xp8000e, does this matter? If so, which cable should I get.

by Bob from New York on March 11, 2012

A: You will never realize a full load of 7500 watts at any one time, therefore the Century Wire & Cable model D13011025 or any other power cord rated at 30 amps with the NEMA# L14-30R plug would be more than sufficient for you.
by Mike, Product Expert

Q: I have generator 7000 watts. Can I use cable 30- Amps?
by Mike T. from Connecticut on October 11, 2011

A: A 7000 watt generator normally has a 30A outlet on it which is rated at 7500 watts which is the same as the cord. Just double check the connections in our specs section on the product page.

by Mike, Product Expert

Q: Hi Jim! We are going to getup a manual transfer switch with an out side box to accept the cord from our portable generator.

We want to get everything to handle 50 amp service but will be using a 5000 watt/20amp generator with a twist lock plug (L14-20R) for some time until we can upgrade it to a larger model.

Question: How can we 'adapt' a 50amp cord to our L14-20R plug so that we don't have to rewire or replace the cable when we upgrade our generator?

Thanks for you help!

by Devin from Illinois on July 23, 2011

A: You would have to contact a certified electrician for that type of modification to specifically designed equipment. We do not offer recommendations on altering equipment. Sorry.

Power Equipment Direct Recommended

For the price and 25ft length, this power cord is a good deal. For the price it earns our better spot.

This product will allow you to connect a generator to a transfer switch. This power cord allows you to power 120V and 240V. It has 10 gauge wire and male and female twistlock plugs.

Frustrating Problem
The female end had an odd manufacturing defect. The ground contact was bent in such a way that made it very difficult to plug in to the male contacts in the power inlet. Finally got it to work after 30 mins. or so of frustration. No fun.

I think it is probably a rare problem, so that's why I said I'd buy it again.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Difficult To Use

"Personnel told me my shipping price and when It could be delivered it went out on the same day ordered revived the following day late in afternoon. I went shopping in stores around my area no one in area had power cords or generators due to 800,000 people being without power southeastern Michigan wind storm in March 2017."

This cord had the added surprise of an LED light built into the plug to show you had a good connection. Already used it for a couple hours and had no issues.

Great Product And Great Purchase
Went to Home Depot first bought a similar item at same price. After using it for one storm was very disappointed. It would not stay attached to the reliance power inlet, it did NOT have a twist lock & would fall out of the receptacle. The century cable from electric generator direct has a twist lock & fit tight as could be, this baby did not flinch once Connected. Excellent product.
Pros: Durable, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

The GP 6500 Generac generator, Reliance manual transfer switch, and outlet box, with the Century power cable that I purchased from Electric Generators Direct have met all of my expectations. My Electricians were impressed especially with the Century power cable, which they thought was well made, better than what you can buy at Home Depot or Lowe's. I recommend the products and the service that you recieve from Electric Generators Direct.

Looking For Generator Equipment
Being an electrician in Connecticut, all supply houses are back-ordered months on generator equipment. Generators are a hot ticket these days do to 3 major power outages from Hurricane Irene and snow storms. I was referred to "Generators Direct" from another electrician & I was relieved this site has a lot of the brand name equipment I'd normally use in the field. Prices are fair, shipping time is good. I'd recommend this site to anyone who is an electrician in need for parts,... more

Emergency Power
With a combination like this power outages are no longer a worry, after super storm Sandy we lost power for 5 days, I was lucky, no property damage however with cold temperatures and no heat I felt the need to be better prepared should an event like that ever happen again. This combination will provide all basic needs heat, refrigeration, lighting and a couple of other non essentials such as TV and computer use. I work for a utility company so i could not be home with my family during the storm... more
