It is wise to place an over-current device (fuses or circuit breakers) in your pigtail, though.
-EDIT- Only if it's a 50A outlet. If you have 50A wiring on a 30A breaker you are quite safe.
As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

No reason not to as long as the wall outlet is the correct voltage. most are designed to be plugged into a 110v outlet.
Uh, because you left the switch on for what you had plugged in to the outlet.
Electricity gets to the TV through the wires that comes from the pole to the outlet the TV is plugged into.
The voltage is always present, but no current is flowing.
No, if nothing is plugged in pulling current then you are using no electricity by leaving the switch in the on position.
Can an apt. stove be plugged into a outlet
to many electrical cords plugged into one outlet
It is plugged into a wall outlet.
yes u can
Almost all sewing machines, with the exception of vintage hand crank machines, need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.
Yes, as long as the outlet is the correct voltage.
too many electrical cords plugged into one outlet
Generally, no. We usually try to avoid having a lot of things plugged into one outlet, which is the usual meaning of "octopus connection" when we talk about things electrical. If we get a lot of stuff plugged into one outlet or a single outlet strip, we could approach (or exceed) the current rating on the outlet and end up tripping a circuit breaker. Less things plugged in is better.
how many amps flow thruogh a 2400 watt appliance plugged into a 120 volt outlet
It doesn't matter either way. I personally keep mine plugged in when I don't need to bring it anywhere. When you have it plugged, make sure the whole charger is unplugged from the outlet so it isn't still sucking up energy even when the laptop isn't plugged in.
Can the magic jet be plugged in the electrical outlet without the internet.
Yes, a space heater can be plugged into any outlet. Depending on what else is drawing current on the circuit will govern whether the circuit will trip or not. If the heater is plugged in and the circuit does not trip it can be left plugged as long as it is needed. If the heater trips after a few seconds, then try another outlet.
I work At sears the highest BTU's we have is 15,000 that will use 110 outlet
It is likely broken if there is power to the outlet
You bet it will.
A fear of wires, plugs or anything that can be plugged into a wall or outlet.
Not unless it is plugged into a wall outlet.
If you already have 120v pwr to the box you simply pigtail all conductors to wire as single.
