Those fishing magnets got me to wondering—if the magnet has 700 lbs. of holding strength, what happens if you latch onto a car body down there? Just cut your line and kiss your magnet goodbye?

Coupon only worked one time for me. I tried to buy a second and it did not apply the discount . Maybe you can buy multiples at once ?

Fishing magnets, meh. I’m sorry, I don’t care how powerful those neodymium magnets might be… they just won’t catch any fish! Silly

Steelhead maybe? Smile

Geeeez man…. It’s a $3.19 extension cord. I agree that alone does not make it a ‘good deal’ and I would not use this type ext cord in the rain, but its strange that everyone that actually bought it (unlike you) and took the time to review it thought it was a good buy. You might want to read what folks said that actually purchased it before calling it a POS. C’mon man, spend the $3.19 and THEN tell us what you think ……. Im guessing you simply have a case of ‘cancel culture’ flu and choose to be one of those “the light is bad and the wind is blowing the wrong way” folks.
BTW……. its ‘unavailable’ now, not because it is a POS, but because it keeps selling out as soon as they relist it at that price ….. just saying

Yeah, c’mon alright. This has nothin’ to do with me and a case of ‘cancel culture’ BS. I don’t need to buy it. I got plenty of indoor-rated cords.

I wouldn’t have called it a POS for indoor use. Butt when they claim it’s rugged suitable for outdoor use then a royal deceptive POS it is. It’s a fooking innate shock hazard, capeesh? Price here is irrelevant. It could be $.25 and it still wouldn’t be a good buy.

“I would not use this type ext cord in the rain,….”

Oh, so YOU wouldn’t use it. Well that’s great, Mr. Edison, butt not everyone else is necessarily you. Ya know how many people out there don’t know what the fook they’re doing with 120V outdoor electrical and rely on sketchy ‘reviews’? Electrical and outdoors – most don’t have a clue.

Can you without fail predict when it’s gonna rain? Without ya knowing about it beforehand wouldya want your family or plain anyone on your property unsuspectedly operating an obvious indoor-only switch design after it gets rained/submerged/hosed upon? How about barefoot to ground?

Yer promoting a deceptively-advertised dangerous non-outdoor-suitable POS becuz it’s a ‘bargain’. For indoor use only probably ok.. Ya might as well go to Dollar Tree and use one of their indoor rated cord extensions and save $2. That’s an even better bargain. I’m done. Cancel culture flu. LOL Shocked

@ nottawhackjob
Just to be clear, for $3.19 I never intended or expected to be able to use this in the rain or to plug in a generator, and neither should anyone else with ANY common sense.

Let’s try this….. show me a better ‘indoor’ extension cord at this price AFTER you have purchased it and I will buy it. Heck I cant even drive to Walmart 2 blocks away and sit in my car for that, much less go inside and find a ‘better deal’ that is NOT, as you say, a POS. I simply find it unreasonable for you to ‘bad mouth’ an item that you have not purchased or actually used.

It’s obvious you are mad at the seller(and maybe even me) for their “Designed for rugged indoor & outdoor use” comment but anyone without your common sense will obviously just have to suffer the consequences if they use it in a puddle of water.

It’s just an extension cord to plug a lamp, phone charger, etc into, that’s all and It is much better than any other ‘less than $20 indoor ext cords’ I have ever bought and used. I think several here may have purchased this item, maybe they will chime in when theirs arrive.
You said you are ‘done’ ….. so am I, so let’s drop it…..

This reminds me of the time I noticed a guy at Burger King had a huge fight with the cashier that the large fries put in the bag wasn’t totally filled. “It’s supposed to be brimming over and spilling into the bag, just like it did last time!” Facepalm

(disclaimer: This happened when I was in my 20’s. I don’t eat fast food any longer due to the inherent HEALTH RISKS of this type of food).

There is a local burger place that if you order fries for eat in, it’s full to the brim. Get the same for takeout and it’s always 80% full.

We had a Fat Boys or Fat Guys or something along those lines (chain/franchise) that did the same. I could order fries and make that my entire meal.

Burgers were otherwise good but way way way overcooked, per company policy. I asked… begged… to get a burger less “crispy”, but was told sorry, no can do. Hence the fries only.

Oh, free unshelled peanuts for the taking, too, so I’d load up on them, too. Saved some for the Angry Squirrels, too, so they wouldn’t murder me on my way home.

Got the Cold Steel Luzon today. Nice knife, flips open well. I wish the pocket clip was on the opposite end, but oh well. It feels heavy in the hand but not bothersome in the pocket. I like it!

Bluetooth headphones for $7

https://www.myvipon.com/product/8806492-60Hrs-Bluetooth-Headphones-Over-Headphones-with-amazon-coupons

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09BJ6YXZ7

There is one customer review on Amazon, and that person says that they're Mpow headphones.

I don't know if Mpow BH451B are any good (I didn't do any research), but Mpow are generally good.

Alright, after all the discussion regarding the extension cord, I had to get one. Big Smile I’ll make my own decision, but any cord for $3.19 sounds fair to me.

We have one of those. Same deal. tons of fries and beyond dry burgers.
Got another joint that will actually cook them so there is some pink inside – or red if you are brave enough and verify you really want it that way.

More holsters. 2 for $12.99 or $13.99. XTAR. Just a regular price.
Have flaps. Don’t have the keen 360 swivel thingy though.

Good price. I lose them but I have enough currently..

I swear, if I don’t start seeing more sizes I am going to make them. I would like to see leather holsters, but I haven’t seen any except edc size. Still using the deal from here. Soft but durable so far.

After receiving mine a few weeks ago at about the same price on an Olight sale (and waiting for shipping from China), I can't say that I'm all that jazzed about this little 16340 light, but it's well made.  Flash sale on Amazon for $45 with fast delivery...expires around 9:25pm EST.

Regarding that extension cord above....hard pass.  Looking at just the housing on the strip with those sprue holes suggests that it may not be a smart plastic choice in regard to arcing or overheating.  I've seen quite a few surge strip and extension cord failures with the ultra cheap China stuff.  Those certs/ratings are usually a hoax and they just imprint the products because they're "supposed to"...not all, but many of these cheapies do exactly that and there is zero testing or approval involved.  That switch looks super sketchy too, so the first thing I'd do is open that up for a peek.  I've seen similar cords that had line and neutral crossed, loose strands at terminals, really crappy quality conductors...etc.  I think it's high time that the US clamp down on electric cords and devices in regard to safety and certification...just way too many unsafe products in our market now either in design or construction & materials.  I know UL is super expensive and possibly somewhat archaic in its structure now, but we need to return to some safety standards and demand that of imported products. 

(before anyone accuses me of cancel-whatever, I am currently waiting on about eleven packages from Aliexpress, only one of which is flashlight related (Convoy)....it's just that this crap can be really important and until you see it matter, it won't matter to you.)

Agree. Don’t forget to stock up on real fire extinguishers. My buddy recently was able to save big scratch buying an off brand charger to charge his off brand cells for his vape thinggy. Sucks when the things light up your room at midnight when you are sleeping and you almost cook. 3 fire extinguishers was the number for him, but it was nip and tuck when the smoke is so thick you will die if you breath it in. (drop to the floor for a breath was his advice).

Besides, you’re saving $10 on the cord, whats the worst that will happen? I’m with you brother, go for it. But I want to see the “after” photos too:-) Buddy’s shots of a burned out bed and room looked pretty f**ing knarly. Dudes in great shape, and keeps an extinguisher right by his bed, which started the process and then he went through 2 more, or he likely wouldn’t have made it.
