Are these 2 power cables the same?

Hi,

I have a 3m power cable supplied with my LCD TV but needed a longer one (5m). So I went to the local shop who said that I could buy and extension, which I did. The only thing that worries me is making sure the two power cables are the same.

It is a kettle type cnnection (IEC ??) that plugs into the TV and has an ordinary plug on the other end.

The full details written on the cables are shown below:

Original supplied =
GFC-3R VDE KENA-KEUR <SEMKO><DEMKO><NEMKO><FIMKO><CEBEC618><oVE> +S+S+S NF-USE-1291-HO5VV-F 3G 0.75mm LONGWELL-P 2005

the (o section of <oVE> is actually a Scandanavian o..if that makes sense..with the 2 dots above it...but dont know if that makes a difference)

Extension =
HO5VV-F 3G1.0mm <VDE> N19626 CCC A03011G No.2003010105097406 2271EC 53(RVV) 300/500V 3x1.0mm HIGH PROJECT

Are they the same cable and therefore safe to use together?

Thanks in advance, :thumbsup:
Tommy

Tommy,

No problem there. The extension cable is slightly higher rated than the original which is as it should be.

Happy viewing!
