Tip from a pro:

I love short extension cords. I keep one in the boxes of my most-used tools, like my circular saw and Sawzall. The short cords dont reach the nearest outlet every time, but often enough to justify taking up space in the box. I make sure to buy 14-gauge, and I prefer the ones that have a couple extra receptacles, like this 9-footer here. Chris Petersen, contractor
