Burnt Power Socket

Burnt Power Socket

Two of the sockets of my retractable power cable has burnt out, as you can see.

Both times, I was using this universal power adapter so I can plug my round-prong power plugs into it. My suspicion is that those universal power adapters I use are not meant to carry the high wattage of power tools.

Would anyone know of adapters that can withstand 250V, 15A to 20A?

One option for me is to replace all my round prong ones with flat prong plugs. But those Eagle or Omni high Amp power plugs I used before turn out not so heavy duty. The prong screws come off the sockets when I unplug from a tight socket. Would anyone know of some industrial grade replacement plugs?

Ding,

you can replace your socket with Kopez KM2202 unbreakable power strip. It has universal outlets. Cost about Php400 plus I think.

Thanks, Joey. I used that before and, after some time, the prongs get pulled out when the socket is tight.

I like that unbreakable power strip, Jun. Is Kopez a good brand? Am familiar with Eagle only.

Also, it has a rating of 1600W max. I have a Bosch saw rated at 2100W.

Kopez is a good brand, it also a lot better than the universal socket you are using. It should be able to.handle your 4100.

Thanks, Jun. I haven’t checked, but is that available in Wilcons, Handymans, or True Values? Or do I need to go to Chinatown for it?
