Hello.....my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question. My goal is to exceed your expectations on Just Answer!
1) Just to confirm, 2 of the lights will be 50 feet away from a plug-in receptacle and the 3rd light will be another 50 feet away totaling 100 feet from a receptacle?
1) Hello Lon...... thank you for your reply.
2) A standard 3-prong (with ground) extension cord using either 16 AWG copper or 14 or 12 AWG copper will work. Since your total connected load is only .6 amps, the voltage drop is next to nothing. Cost wise, using a 16 AWG standard 50 foot extension cord from Home Depot or Lowe's is perfectly acceptable and will work fine.
3) Just make sure that you plug the extension cord into a GFCI protected receptacle. I also recommend to use an "in-use" bubble cover at the GFCI receptacle where you intend to plug the extension cord into. This will keep the extension cord at the receptacle protected from the weather.
Hope this helps.........If you have any additional questions, let me know and I'll be glad to answer them for you.
