    Heavy Duty Extension Lead

    Im after a heavy duty extension lead to run from kitchen to outside shed, approx 15-20m
    The lead will not me in any weather conditions as it backs onto the house by a covered roof

    It will run a chest freezer and occasionally a tumble dryer

    What would you recommend ?
    I was thinking something like this might do ?

    Not sure where that one is from but it looks like a Woodside make.

    If so, should be fine provided both ends are protected from the weather and an RCD protects it.

    This would be notifiable work though .

    Where are you going to feed it from @Rat ?

    I have one like this on the back wall of the house > LAP 13A 2-Gang DP Switched Plug Socket with Outboard Rocker | Outdoor Sockets | Screwfix.com

    Also handy for any garden tools & patio stuff

    Just make sure whatever you put out there is IP66 rated
