Hi Is this compatible with a german made cotton candy machine - 1030w 0r 1050w/ or 1100w, 220 volts? The european lead has caused my machine to fail a uk pat test due to earthing - 2 pins plug. I was told to buy a uk lead/plug and then should pass?

Asked by: Francesca
if your device uses a figure of 8 connector then this should be fine: This lead is rated at 250Volts AC, 2.5A and the 13A plug carries a 3A fuse.

Will this connect to a Panasonic TV ?

Asked by: Robin
It's hard to say without any specific details about the TV as different connection systems are used on different models. The cable is not brand specific, it utilises an industry standard connector known as "figure of 8" The end of the lead looks like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60320#/media/File:IEC60320_C7.jpg The socket it goes into looks like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60320#/media/File:IEC60320_C7_Socket.JPG As long as your TV has the "figure of 8" socket illustrated above then it will fit.
