    Default FS: Figure 8 Mains Cable

    I have a brand new Figure 8 mains cable for sale. It's shielded cable, 90cm long and fitted with a Permaplug mains plug with a 5 amp fuse and silver plated Figure 8 connector.

    I'm looking for £22.00 including postage.

    Why a 5a fuse? Low amp mains fuses are to protect small cables, not equipment.

    Don't remark on sales items.

    Can’t see why this question had such blunt response’s, seemed a ok question, and I’ve seen many questions and distractions on sales threads before, mainly they have been answered politely.

    As a rule of thumb, fuses are rated according to the power rating of the appliance.
