I feel we are missing something here. Tin does not oxidize due to moisture. In fact tin coating is used in some cables to prevent the oxidation of other metals like copper.Josh,
That is really interesting ... I guess you might be right.
Mumbai's humidity in the monsoon is very high and could be the reason.
Something to keep in ming with the unshielded Duelands I guess.
So 1. Not sure if the issue is due to oxidation and
2. That such oxidation could be caused due to moisture
Also the cable description itself says it has high affinity for moisture and cable would not have static charges because of it.
