I wouldn't say this ideal for outdoor power applications, it's not waterproof and there should be a rcd (residual current device) somewhere between it and the supply.
10A also not very useful
Damn ordered more expensive one two days ago. Typical.

Granted, but this is an 'extension' lead that's intended to supplement an existing, and hopefully rcd protected, power line.
great timing. just what I needed!

Does it never rain where you are then? A Rcd alone will prevent current leakage to earth but won't prevent a potentially rather unheathy flow between the poles

I agree it's a poorly worded description "Ideal for outdoor power applications" but then again common sense would/should prevail when using any electrical item whilst it's raining. It's a real pita using my hairdryer in a thunderstorm Taken as just an extension cable (rather than a permanent outdoor fixture) for £7.99 I think it represents reasonable value.

Pressure washers


If you absolutely must use an extension cable with a pressure washer then an IP65(min) housing is must. See here
Pretty much what Jasee was alluding to (for external electrical items that involve water/moisture) from the outset.
Alternatively get a longer pressure hose perhaps?

Unless you are spraying water into the power plugs, (which is just plain dumb), it is not a "must".

I believe "heavy duty" has been addressing the physical strength and not current carrying ability at 10A.

Does not mean that I would not put a 13A fuse in if it if I had to.
