      The plan is to buy a 12 gauge extension cord with a single outlet to power the fridge for an hour and then switch to the freezer for an hour.
      Thats fine. 12 gauge is appropriate for the load.

      Unless your fridge and freezer are ancient, you can plug both of them in at the same time no problem.

      Get a triple tap 2 ft extension cord adapter, and that way you only have to run one cord into the house. You can use the other two outlets to charge your devices.

      Thanks bubba, I actually have a 12 gauge extension cord already purchased and a triple tap 2’ adapter, lol.
      Just wasn’t sure it would power everything from one cord.
      The refrigerator was just purchased last summer, it’s pretty efficient. The deep freezer is about 10 yo.
      The reason I asked is my wife purchased me an extension cord for a stocking-stuffer (trying to be helpful) but it’s a 16 gauge, wasn’t sure if it was strong enough to power the coffee maker, a lamp, and charge a couple of cell phones.
      I have read some where that it’s best to split the load on a generator on the 2 outlets. Thinking 1 outlet would be just fridge and freezer on 1 cord and the coffee maker/lamp/cell phones on another cord from the other outlet.
      Not necessary?
