    Hi all, I'm looking to buy a long mains cable for my projector which is currently fixed in the ceiling. The mains cable supplied is only 1m-ish long and I dont fancy drilling an extension lead to the ceiling. Anyone know where I can buy a long IEC mains cable.

    Thanks

    You can buy the connector and some cable at lots of different places - try Maplins - and make a lead of any length you want in minutes.

    What's IEC? Is that like a kettle plug? I have a load of long PC cables. How long do you need as I could fire one off to FOC if I have one long enough.

    The IEC-320 type C13 (BS4491) line socket or Euroconnector is sometimes referred to as a 'kettle' connector - don't know why because it is used on just about every piece of mains operated equipment. why not call it a 'computer connector'

    If these connectors are used on kettles they should be of the specially designated 'HOT' type

    I didn't think an IEC would fit a kettle, as a true 'Kettle' lead has a groove in it.
