I need to extend a double plug socket cable by 1-2m, will it be safe to use this 6mm cable for that as i have some left over ?

Asked by: ajs89
HI, we would advise you consult with a qualified electrician for guidance in this area. Guidance in Appendix 15 of BS7671, advises a 2.5mm² for socket extensions. We don't believe a 6mm² should be used for your application, but you should seek professional advice.

can I use a 3 pin plug with this?

for a electric oven
Asked by: jaybird24
No, this is for cookers, showers and car chargers etc. You don't need a 6mm core cable if you're terminating with a 13amp plug. You shouldn't really be putting a plug on any kind of solid core cable.

What cable is more appropriate for Electric Hob (6 KW) connection? The TWIN & EARTH CABLE 6MM² (Product Code: 29733) or TWIN & EARTH CABLE 10MM² (Product Code: 69495)?

Asked by: Bben
You need to refer to the manufacturer of the hob. It may be given in the handbook. For your information a 6KW load will pull 26 amps and you can find the data sheet for the products on the Prysmian web site (search for whyprysmian). However you still need to refer to the manufacturer for this application.

Is this Suitable for use in a Ring Main

I need to replace a stretch of socket ring main as the cable is slightly damaged (not exposed) should this cable be sufficient?
Asked by: glennda37
Generally speaking for 32Amp ring main 2.5sqmm 6242Y is used & the same size is recommended throughout the ring. Standard 13Amp sockets will only take up to 10sqmm total into each terminal so you may have trouble terminating depending on how many cables are going into the socket. Regards Peter Fox
