My plan to house a new consumer unit just that bit further away from the meter these are ideal. Will be purchasing a consumer unit from screwfix very soon.

Item in 1 or 3 Mtr. Lengths could have done with a 2 in there. 1 wasted.

Handy if you don't want to buy three reels of cable. 3m is just the right length.
Most DNOs state that an internal meter must be within 2m of the CU, but that doesn't limit the length of the tails to 2m as you can have at least 0.5m in the CU.
For an external meter, the CU must be within 2m from the entry point, so 3m is the norm with 1m in the external box/meter/CU.
You can go much longer if a switchfuse is fitted to protect the cables.
The distance between the internal meter/entry point and the CU is at the descretion of the DNO.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Comptonbuilder Handy set of meter tails
Useful if you don't want to buy a whole reel of blue and brown meter tails. And you get the 16 mm earth which is also useful. Plenty of length and good quality.
