Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 star cable Ok so I will explain the star ratings I gave this cable: Value: Reasonably priced and normally get a little bit off being an electrifix customer. Features: I love this one, you'll never believe it, it's got 3 cores it, 2 of which are 1.5csa. The other no one really cares about, it's just an earth so that's a little smaller (Ok messing I realise it's for a reason other than no one cares about it, it helps strip the t+e cable as the earth doesn't have its own sleeve. Performance: It carries electrons faster then I can so it wins! Cable was nice and easy to strip, not fighting woth it then scoring cores, can fold up cable for individual termination into screw terminals without it breaking (had poor quality cable that doesn't like this) Reliability: Lights still work so can't be bad! Seen reviews on here state this is good cable for large light circuits... don't listen, every circuit should be calculated correctly, you could have 1 50w light bulb on the end of this cable protected by a B6 breaker, but you run this cable through any insulation and you need to add the k factor. So the cable will be 50% larger hence why 1mm csa becomes 1.5mm csa. When it comes to cable always best to go over than under on size. 29 Dec 2015

Good Morning,
This is a very typical cable used for domestic lighting. Please ensure all aspects of the Wiring Regulations are complied with and that all installation work is made by a qualified electrician.
