Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect for outside installs I bought this after my fire was burnt down, and am in process of setting up my new shed which is going to be more of a workshop, so needed to upgrade my former 2.5 armoured cable, and in turn have bought RCBO (COMBINED RCD AND MCB TOGETHER) FOR ADDED SECURITY, Though you must mind when measuring your length required, to add at least another 2 meter which will allow for burial of this cable at the minimum depth of 1/2 a meter deep to be within the electrical installation 17 edition regulations, and best to earth the armoured shielding cable too, this helping not only as backup /emergency earth addition, but will help protect it should it get cut, which in turn will activate the RCBO due to the Breakage in turn coursing Earth Leakage. which in turn triggers the safety breaker 20 Mar 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really needed! This was bought because I was advised [correctly??] that this type of cable was needed for the supply to garage. It might be great stuff but it IS difficult to handle, difficult to cut and now I have been told that I need to have it sunk into the ground between house & garage by 450mm!!!!!!! So... it does the job it is intended for it is just AWKWARD!!!!! 25 Apr 2013

If we assume a single phase load then the current drawn is about 5 amps. You don't mention how the cable is installed but a clipped direct rating from the wiring regulations is 49 amps for this cable.
