HX850W 5 amps or 13 amps


Recommended Posts



I live in the UK and I have just moved house and all my power cables have got mixed up. I was hoping someone could help.


I have a HX 850 w power supply and I am not sure which power cable I should use.


I have either a 5 amp fuse or 13 amp fuse power cable that will fit the power supply.


If anyone can tell me if I should use a 5 amp fuse or 13 amp fuse cable that would be much appreciated.


I checked the user manual but it is not mentioned.

You should use the 13 amp fused cable if you have 110V AC in your area. It's interesting to note that at 110V the PS will draw ~8 amps maximum, but at 220V it would draw ~4 amps maximum. The same amount of power in watts flows through the cable, 880W. Do you know what the voltage rating of the 5 amp fused cable is? If it is 220V or more, and if you have 220V power in your new area, then you could use that cable, I believe.
