    Excess Of Three Pin Power Supply Leads

    We have surplus of three pin 'kettle leads' and I am reluctant to throw them away. We have given some to science to cut down for the students to practice wiring three pin plugs. Some have gone to Site Support. I have run out of ideas. What do you do?

    We have 4 boxes full of them in our cupboard doing nothing, just pick one out as and when required. Some old, some new, some borrowed but none are blue :P

    We got up to 5 boxes after replacing a load of computers. Our PAT testing guy did his nut!! Ended up throwing 3 boxes, giving a fair few to music (apparently people nick them for guitar amps), keeping 20 good ones in the server room and hiding a few more just in case.

    I'm sure they are breeding.

    We keep our supplies low as our LEA does the PAT testing and charges us for every lead sat in the cupboard

    Re: Excess Of Three Pin Power Supply Leads

    lol talking of pat testing thats my second job in the school so i dnt get charged for geting it done as i do it myself lol. and the course is only £75 but the machine is £800 and £40 for calabration but they decided it was cheaper the getting charged £1.50 per item desktop = 2 items kettle lead and box. if you got 100 pc thats £300 pounds thats not includind screen if that uses a kettle lead thats another £3 so for 100 pcs on av its about £600 per year thats why i do it myself now lol

    At this rate we could all send him one cable each and he'd still have some left over!

    Just to clarify: These are single outlet and not the 'Y' shape versions.

    Re: Excess Of Three Pin Power Supply Leads

    We keep 2 massive boxes in the office, one for singles one for doubles, and then hide the majority if we know the PAT tester is coming

    Ive got stacks of spares at home too as I just take home the excess ones
