Especially if you are providing the extension reel so your granny can sit on the sofa with a 3kW electric fire at her feet.You probably know that if the extension comes on a reel, uncoil every inch of it and spread it about a bit if using anywhere near its rated power
The worst offenders of them all are high power long duration appliances like heaters. Rolled up extension leads get stinking hot, soft and floppy if you forget to unroll them.
