Watt on earth

Safety resource


A 240 volt extension lead with waterproof socket, an additional socket has been added by use of Twin & Earth (6242Y) cable usually used for fixed wiring and lighting. This is poor practice in itself, but when you look at the earth wire (bare copper one) is not fixed and nearly touching the live.
