The IEC (C13) to UK 3 pin 13A mains cable, is more commonly know as a kettle lead and is used for powering a variety of electrical appliances such as PC base units, monitors, printers & photocopiers and a whole host of other equipment.

Cables with IEC C13 sockets such as this are sometimes known by the generic term 'kettle lead'. Even though this term is commonly used, technically it is incorrect as a kettle requires special IEC C15/16 connectors rated at 120 degrees. So, although they look similar, a 'real' kettle lead features a connector with a cut out on the top. Standard IEC C13 cables cannot be plugged into kettles!

The PVC connectors are BS1363 Compliant and sonically welded to provide a high quality cable which is perfect for home or office use.

We rely on electrical devices more than ever, so power leads and adapters are an essential part of modern life. Older houses often don’t have enough sockets, but extension leads increase capacity so you can plug in all your computing or hifi equipment.

Extension Leads and Mains Conditioners

Our 4, 6 and 10 gang mains extension leads are great when you need extra sockets for your equipment. These come in a range of cable lengths, some surge protected.

Power Cables, Adapters and Converter Plugs

Another potential problem with power cables is having the wrong connector type or plug. Sometimes you have a figure 8 power cord for your laptop charger when you need an IEC or clover leaf design. We have a huge variety of cables to suit any situation, whether you need a lead with a plug or not.
