That's an oxymoron.

Hi All

Some more on extension leads

AS/NZS 3199 requires. Clauses 5.1 and 5.2 requires:
5.1 General
The plug and cord extension socket shall be each of the same current
rating and configuration, and in no case greater than the current- carrying
capacity of the flexible cord.
5.2 Plug
The plug shall be a three-pin flat-pin plug complying with AS/NZS 3112,
and have a current rating of not less than 10 A.

Hi All

 

 This post is due to some questions that developed on another forum recently

Where the use of Clipsal & Arlec type devises were being actively promoted at caravan shows  

Also a RVMMA handbook was being distributed illustrating their use

 

 

 

The section of the RVAMAA handbook dealing with electrical safety & in particular the use of Cipsal /Arlec type products for RCD protection &/or connection of  a 15amp plug to a 10amp socket is  NOT AN APPROVED USE


 
 I have made inquiries direct to the relevant authorities  
To date ,I have had three replies regarding the incorrect information in the RVMMA booklet
regarding the use of portable outlet boards
WA &TAS have confirmed that "epods " complying to AS/NZS 3105 ARE NOT APPROVED FOR THAT SITUATION[ie used  for connection to a van extension lead
The Qld SEI has confirmed that the info was supplied some 10years ago,IT IS OUT OF DATE
THEY have contacted the RVMMA
