Prysmian 6242YH Twin Brown Cable 1.5mmÂ² x 50m Grey
Lack of knowledge - fatal
A number of reviewers have rated this product poorly, due to a lack of knowledge on the subject.
Twin & E brown cable is an ideal choice for switch wires, as both can be live, one will always be live. The earth wire is to preserve earth continuity from the loop circuit to the switch.
This is an excellent product, as with everything electrical you need to know what to use. I would always use this for switch wires. It saves having to identify with a sleve that a blue is a brown.

It is what it should be
I don't know why previous reviewers are rating this poorly for being brown/brown and not blue brown. The product title and description seem clear enough to me and this is ideal for what it's required for - light switching where both cores are line, a CPC is required and there is no neutral. It comes on a handy dispenser reel and does what it's supposed to. If you don't know how to use this product properly, call a domestic electrician. If he doesn't know either, call a better domestic electrician!

Not for DIY!!!!
My sparky gave me the item number for this cable... So I purchased it and installed it.. When he came to do the 1st fix he said that it should be Blue and Brown twin and earth... Not Brown/Brown.
This can still do the job but requires a tester at each section to know what is Live and What is Neutral. From what i'm aware this is the ONLY Brown/Brown cable all the others are Blue/Brown. See the other review for correct number...
