My curiosity has been piqued and I have to ask these questions, even though they may sound stupid.
1. Let us say we buy a Supra Lorad power cable. As fas as I can see, it comes with a UK plug. So what do we do? - do we cut the cable near the plug and replace it with an Indian plug, or do we buy a extension board that can take such plug types and use that? By doing this will we be degrading the cable's capabilities.
2. I have wired my whole house with Finolex 720 Flamegaurd wires. All my sockets are MK, and I have slowly replaced all the plugs in my appliances with MK plugs so that the fitment is perfect. Over the last 10 years, I have not had a single incident (touch wood) of any kind, except once when there was sustained lightning for half a day, and I forgot to unplug some devices. All I lost was a fuse on my TV that was easily replaced.
My question is this - If I buy a good quality IEC male, use Finolex cables and a MK plug, will I be creating a DIY equivalent of the Supra Lorad?
3. A Suhas has suggested in many places, what will happen if I buy a HP cable, and replace the plug with an MK plug.
I know these questions are stupid, but I have the urge to create new extension boxes and use MK plugs and sockets throughout for all my expensive electronics. I have great faith in the MK plugs and sockets.
I know these questions are stupid
Not a stupid question at all. A good contact can make a very very large difference. Although I have not experimented with it, many people claim to find a difference in sound with the change of wall outlets. All my cables have US style connectors (easier to buy and sell these online) and hence I use US wall outlets. I feel these give a very tight and excellent connection, while not costing much. I use the Pass & Seymour ones (Cryo treated) at the bottom of the following page. I paid 2/3 the price they are now listed for:I know these questions are stupid, but I have the urge to create new extension boxes and use MK plugs and sockets throughout for all my expensive electronics.
