Can you replace a 10 amp 125 volt extension cord with a 10 amp 250 volt extension cord?

Yes the rated voltage is a maximum. A 250 v cord might be slightly thicker than one for 125 v. <<>> The voltage rating of an electrical extension cord is the insulation factor of the cord. These cords come in two insulation ratings, 300 volts and 600 volts. If the voltage rating is within the parameters of the cord maximums then it is safe to use it on that voltage. The amperage of the cord is based on the wire size of the cord's conductor. The rating of 10 amps will fall within the #14 cord size. Remember the longer the cord the larger the wire size should be to prevent voltage drop at the connected load end.
