An electrical cable known as a power cord, line cord, or mains cable temporarily connects a device to the mains electricity supply via a wall socket or extension cord.
The phrases are typically applied to cables that connect to a single-phase AC power supply at the local line voltage using a power plug.
Also used are the words power cable, mains lead, flex, and kettle lead. A lamp cord is a thin, single-insulated, ungrounded, two-wire cord that is used for modest loads like a table or floor lamp.
At each end of a cord set are connections that have been moulded onto the cord. The flexible cord has male and female electrical connectors at either end, and chord sets are removable from both the power source and the electrical equipment.
To avoid the chance of having an exposed live prong or pin that could result in an electric shock, the cable set normally has one end attached to a moulded electrical plug and the other to a moulded electrical receptacle.
While the male plug connects to the electrical outlet or receptacle, the female connection fastens to the piece of machinery or appliance.
The electrical cable used to use the generated electricity at the end-use location is known as a power cord. Power cords can be distinguished from one another by their differing load-carrying capacities, materials, and voltage ranges.
A network for overhead and underground cable laying is capable of installing these cables.
Three different cable types high voltage, medium voltage, and low voltage are used in power cords. In power utilities and other uses, power cords are primarily utilised for the transmission and distribution of electrical energy.
In addition to renewable energy uses, power cords are utilised in residential, commercial, oil & gas, power utility, mining, and other applications.
To fit a variety of gadgets and outlets, power cords are available in a variety of lengths, widths, and forms.
Depending on the distance between the power supply and the appliance, they can also differ in length.
Hence, technology developments may result in the creation of more effective and long-lasting power cords, which are crucial parts needed to power electronic devices.
To avoid electrical risks, it is crucial to select power cords that are suitable for the particular device and adhere to safety regulations.
The Global Power Cord Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The development of power transmission grids will result in improved electrical performances, lower costs, and greater environmental sustainability thanks to a new breakthrough cable technology that will be introduced by Prysmian Group, a global leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry.
The Group reports that its new P-Laser 600 kV cable system for High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) applications has undergone successful development and testing.
The latest fast charger from the South Korean electronics giant supports both USB Type A PD 3.0 Max 25W and USB Type C PD (power delivery) 3.0 Max 35W with Super Fast Charging.
The charger is compatible with a wide range of devices through various ports, including smartwatches, wireless chargers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and more.
Users can expect to charge two devices at once over the USB-C port at rates of 20W and 15W, respectively.
In India, Samsung has unveiled a brand-new dual-port fast-charging power adaptor.
One USB Type-A port and one USB Type-C port can be found on the 35W Power Adapter Duo manufactured by the firm.
The Samsung 35W Power Adapter Duo rapid charger is currently offered in India through the company’s numerous brick-and-mortar shops, accredited resellers, significant e-commerce sites, and even its own Indian websites.
A USB PD 3.0 charger with PPS compatibility, Samsung’s new 35W Power Adapter Duo can fast-charge Samsung devices as well as smartphones and tablets from other manufacturers that need PPS compatibility.
The USB Type-C port has a maximum power output of 35W compared to the USB Type-A port’s maximum power output of 15W.
The USB Type-A connection is also compatible with the Quick Charge 2.0 standard.
It allows for 27W fast charging, which may be used to swiftly recharge the iPhone 13 Pro.
Samsung also asserts that charging times for Galaxy devices can be cut in half. The business claims that Galaxy Note (Note 10 and higher) and Galaxy S series phones may be charged quickly with the charger.
In order to “help solve sustainable consumption issues and eliminate any pressure that consumers may feel towards obtaining unnecessary charging accessories with new phones,” Samsung has already announced that charger plugs and earphones will gradually be phased out of in-box device packaging.
The new charging adapter is available on Samsung.com as well as all other significant offline and online retailers in India.
