Unbranded power plug for Samsung TV?

Postby Heenak » Sun, 04 Sep 2016 8:14 pm

Hello,

We've recently moved to Singapore and bought a Samsung Curved TV. The TV comes with a metre long power cable which is not long enough.

I bought a 3 metre cord from Sim Lim square but am hesitant to use it inc ase it might harm the television. Any suggestions if the cord is safe to use??

Thanks :)

if your tv was bought legitimately in singapore (not for export use) and so was the extension cord (comes with a blue PSB approval sticker), i say plug it in and go nuts.

Since you won't post a picture, buy an extension cord.

Generally Sim Lim Square (not to be confused with Sim Lim Tower!) shops are quite safe. Nonetheless I won't buy/use anything electrical that's not got the local official Spring Safety mark.
