vanity outlets

We would like to put an outlet in a pull out vanity drawer. There will be a junction box in the wall and outlet in the drawer. What type of wire do I use to get from the junction box to the outlet? I understand there may be some type of flexible wire (like a telephone cord) but don't know what it is called or where to find it.

jocrow,

I've had receptacles installed inside cabinets for rechargeable toothbrushes so they are out of sight, but I do not recommend what you intend to do.

Not sure of your intentions, but regardless, running a wire from a receptacle attached to the drawer back then to a wall junction-box is a fire waiting to happen.

if i was gonna do this in my house id would use a cord rated for that.. it will be very flexible and wont break over time.
