IMO, you won’t accomplish anything by going up to 12ga from 14ga other than spending more money, particularly on a permanent fixed cord that will only be used for that purpose. 14ga can do [email protected] easily up to 50 feet (you could actually get by with 16ga!). At 50ft, 14ga would have approx. a 1.9v drop, 12ga would be approx. 1.2v. For a 10-15 foot cord, there is virtually no difference between the two (~1/4 of a volt or so).

Cheers,
Brad
