What is a power hose?

My girlfriend always refers to power cords and extension reels as power hoses. Is this normal?

    I always think of a power hose as being an aftermarket power cord available from such companies as Pangea or WAudio where they claim added clarity and better electrical transfer to your Audio or Home Theater equipment. Usually the thickness or diameter of these after market cords are greater than your standard power cord, also they claim the plugs or connectors are of a superior design also. They also cost more...sometimes a lot more.

    It's a fun idea, and not exactly wrong, either. 

    Her analogy is quite reasonable.
