As someone who’s studied engineering, I should be able to answer this question. However, a quick search online has me confused.
Provided what I’m plugging in (a laptop drawing relatively little power) doesn’t exceed the extension cord rating, there should be no issue.
Advice online suggests otherwise. Is there something about consumer electronics I don’t know? Or, perhaps online advice is merely simplified (and presented inaccurately) to be foolproof.
I see a similar question here, but again I suspect those answers are inaccurate so as to be foolproof.
