Not all Electric Dryer Power Cords are Created Equal
One of the last things most people think about when selecting an electric dryer is also one of the most crucial: the power cord. While electric dryers have changed considerably over the years, the power cords that feed power to them have stayed the same. Until now.
Introducing Monster’s PowerDryer™ Power Cord: Designed for High Current Power Transfer, Convenience & Durability
Clothes dryers draw power. Loads of power. Constructed with large-gauge conductors composed of high-purity, fine copper strands, Monster PowerDryer cords efficiently transfer all the current your power-hungry dryer needs.
Monster Duraflex™ Jacketing for Greater Flexibility and Reliability
When was the last time you looked closely at your electric dryer’s power cord? Considering most are tucked away behind the appliance, you’d be hard-pressed to tell if it has been torn, damaged or become loose. With years of lint build-up, detergent, chlorine spills (and worse) lurking behind your dryer, you’ll appreciate the peace of mind you get with the protection of a high-quality Monster PowerDryer power cord.
Monster surrounds the PowerDryer power cord with heavy-duty conductors in ultra-flexible, kink and tear-resistant Duraflex material. Snags or rips that can expose dangerous, live high-voltage electrical conductors are minimized. The Duraflex jacket is also designed to resist a wide variety of corrosive chemicals commonly found in laundry areas.
When Your Dryer Stops Working, Monster’s Exclusive PowerFlow™ Diagnostic Indicator Helps You Troubleshoot the Problem
When a major appliance stops working, the first thing most people do is scratch their heads and wonder “Is it the appliance, or the power?” One glance at the PowerFlow Indicator and you’ll know if it’s time to check the circuit breaker or call a repair technician. If the light is glowing, you know the outlet is “live” and the problem lies with your dryer. If there is no light, check the circuit breaker or call an electrician. It’s that easy and convenient.
Monsterous 24k Gold Contact Connections: Essential in a Highly Corrosive Environment
Everyone knows that common brass tarnishes over time. Not so with Monster’s 24k gold contact connections. Gold contacts optimize power transfer while resisting corrosion that the laundry room environment may cause.
Dual-Pvoint Strain Relief Stops the Tension that Can Damage Your Cord
Monster’s StressGuard ™ strain relief designed into the heavy-duty injection molded plug reduces harmful stress when pulled. The metal strain relief included in the PowerDryer kit keeps the dryer-side connections from coming loose when the cord is jostled – like when cleaning lint build-up. A special plating resists corrosion as well. Get Monster PowerDryer power cord – a quality connection for today’s quality appliances.
