O.k. the complete house installation is designed so that every part of it can handle the max power/amp that the installation can provide to that part.

Agreed?

Now why would it be wise to after the wall socket have equipment where a power supply can fully overload parts/wires behind it? Nobody cares if one connects a 2A power supply to a .5A piece of equipment since proper stuff can always handle some extra. But the internal safety's (if even there with cheap stuff) often can't handle 20 times higher like 10A, yes surely it will work, and if no faults appear it will work great for many yrs, but if faults appear things can go weird. You would not feed your vacuum cleaner over a 230V/125A wall socket since you know that your vacuum cleaner is completely toast if something happens, ceiling lamps have wires that will not melt when the lamp becomes faulty, and you don't use a 20A charger for your iPhone.

As for the remark from somebody else about building a computer, powers supplies for computer have a wide range of safety methods (SCP for short circuits for example), proper graphical cards have their own fuses etc.)

I already stated that the provided link shows a good supply for OP, I was talking in General, something which I also stated already in this discussion.

I think we all know what is good and what isn't but that we all kept our own idea about what the discussion was about which lead to people talking about different things in the same discussion.

Re: Equivalent plug question



haha, lots of chat, but I really don't know what I am talking about with this subject so I will follow the sage advice of taking it to the suggested store on Hohlstrasse next week!

Thanks a lot guys, I'll let you know how I get on. Otherwise I will somehow buy the euro alexa plug, I was just worried that german plug pins are larger than swiss and therefore don't fit in Swiss walls... but if you guys said it is good then I will keep that as a second option.

I'll update when I have a solution.

Cheers!

Re: Equivalent plug question

In short, the amount of current that can be sourced is irrelevant beyond the point that it is sufficient.

Clear?

Tom

P.S. This is why I am an Engineer, and you are NOT.
