2.5mm2 Is Not The Same As, Or Equal To A Cartridge Fuse

without comments

Some of my friends asked me to check their consumer unit, as all the power had gone out. There was no power coming to the board, so we figured out the main fuse had blown. We took out the old one to have a look at it, and it turned out that there wasn’t a fuse at all, just a bit of corroded, burnt-looking bit of 2.5mm2 wrapped around the terminals.

Bad landlord.
