Seen loads at my local store in Glasgow. Not bad for a tenner, seen many on ebay for around £20+.

This is the extension cable which you unwind, its wound in a circular 'thingy' and it has 4 connections. Ideal for garden work or using electrical devices in a distance from your house/property.

25 metres, 13A, 4 connections.

Note: picture is for illustration purposes only, the one I am talking about is the same concept but it has 4 sockets.

Be useful if you added more info in the title, ie, what it's an extension cable for, for that reason I'm not voting.


This is what I am talking about. No, its not the same brand - the concept is exactly the same.

I know what you mean, but I meant add electical in the title, I clicked this thinking it was a phone extension cable.

Dam we our sorry for wasting 15seconds of your life by clicking on this post, the pick at fault group are here, GET A LIFE :roll:

:whistling: I think the picture gives you a clue ! when you use any mains leads like this if you fully load them up make sure they are fully unwound or else they generate heat within the coils and MELT (eddy currents) cheers - Stuart. :thumbsup:

:?whats eddies currants gotta do with it?:w00t::w00t:

Eddie's currants, or eddy currents for that matter, have nothing to do with it. It's simply that the cable can't get rid of the heat it generates because it's bunched up.

Some extension leads have a thermal cutout in the centre of the reel as an attempt to stop this happening. I don't know how effective these are.

Where I come from, "extension cable" is universal parlance for a UK 3 pin plug extension unless otherwise specified. Heat.

I have owned a JCB extension cable exactly the same as this several years. It is the worst product I have ever used. Without fail it constantly wraps the lead outside of where it is supposed to. This means that I have to spend 10 minutes untangling it. I dont know how I havent launched it into the main road for a well deserved "death by lorry". This is gradually being caught up though by a metal holder for kitchen utensils that my wife bought. It is shaped like a vase with no weight distribution. If I put a large spoon in it the spoon sticks out the side and it falls over. I have hit it with a hammer several times and it wont break it. I think I might have to get the wife to sit on it by accident.

Just a tip - these are a really good and have a steady unwind mechanism etc. but make sure its fully unwound. £10 its a steal (not literally)

cold from me...do a better one same money AT home bargins with thermal cut out and four sockets :)

If you care to read the opening posting you will see that this one has 4 sockets. Whether or not it has a thermal cutout isn't stated though.

What's "home bargins" by the way?

It's far more complicated than that my friend!!

Here I'll give you a clue

I suggest you do some research before commenting on stuff you clearly know nothing about, otherwise you will make yourself look stupid again!
#14
Ohh - how far can you **** up the wall today? :-D

You'll have to work that through for me I'm afraid. I'd be interested to know how much extra heat is generated in a coiled-up extension lead such as in this thread, than when it is uncoiled. Ignoring changes in resistance due to temperature, of course.

I'm waiting. Eddy current losses in air-cored inductors (bifilar or not) is a new one on me. After all, air doesn't conduct too well.

But then you obviously know better :whistling:

what is this? maths club

It's the Neumann formula for mutual inductance, according to Wikipedia. But he obviously didn't want you to know that for some reason, because instead of linking to the image in context, he lifted it and plonked it on an image sharing site. Perhaps he was worried that someone might ask him to explain its relevance to overheating coiled-up extension leads? :giggle:

Be useful if you look at the picture before posting negative comments.
Ever seen a phone with a 3 pin plug?

Aw shame, leftfield, "my friend", you seem to have abandoned this thread. :cry: Busy posting elsewhere but not here? Why ever could that be?

Was it because of your bombastic posturing with a picture of a mathematical equation and you suggestion that I do some research to stop me looking stupid? Classic! :giggle:
