Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Good product would definitely purchase again if needed again

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better Brands are available A good price if the cable was better manufactured. It was difficult to strip compared to other brands, probably due to a lack of French chalk within the outer sheath. Using a standard quality stripping tool, it was difficult and time consuming to remove the outer sheath, as it seemed unwilling to slide over the inner cores and therefore had to use alternative stripping method.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD VALUE....BUT My only criticism was my own fault. I ordered the 10m instead of 25m or 50m. In future I'll always buy the 50m rolls as they are so much cheaper. I only noticed I'd slipped up in buying the 10m after the event, and by then I was committed to getting something up and running, so had to go back for larger rolls.

Is this cable OK for cookers

Asked by: Nicandrus
It would depend on the amount of current that your cooker uses but 1mm cable is not usually a big enough cable for cookers. The general current carrying capacity of 1mm twin and earth is between 8 and 13A depending on it's method of installation so your load would have to fall in between these parameters.

is this cable suitable to use for wiring an extra socket from a spur from another socket ?

Asked by: Kevcopp
This size of cable is not suitable for wiring an extra socket unless it has been fused down. 2.5mm cable is the usual cable for extra sockets but it has to be supplied directly off of the ring and not from another spur.

USE AS EXTENSION LEAD ?

Would this be ok as an under-carpet-edge extension lead to power a 27 inch TV and Chromecast (bedroom) ?
Asked by: flier747
Flat cable like this is mainly used for fixed wiring in houses in the UK for sockets and lighting. It is usually buried in plaster or inside stud walls. Sometimes it is surface mounted and usually then in trunking. For power circuits it is usually 2.5mm² unless separately fused. It must terminate in a fixed socket on or in a wall. I would say this cable it is unsuitable for the purpose proposed. I would certainly not recommend running under the carpet edge; it would be better around the skirting in conduit or trunking. But please seek advice from a qualified electrician particularly with regards to fusing. Have you considered a standard proprietary flexible extension lead?
