If you're new to portable generators, working with the electrical equations may look as complicated as calculus.
Don't worry. You can put the math books and calculators away.
Selecting a generator power cord is simple if you follow two steps:
Basically, the larger the amps, the more electricity the cord can handle.
For example, a 50-amp power cord is a lot thicker than a 20-amp power cord. This allows it to handle a larger wattage.
You simply select a power cord that matches the most powerful outlet on your generator.
If you have a 50-amp outlet, you'll need a 50-amp power cord. If you have a 20-amp outlet, you'll need a 20-amp cord.
If you have a 30-amp or 50-amp outlet, pay special attention to the shape.
