Soft and flexible powercable
February 17, 2016 09:29AM
I have been googling a lot, chating with support on cable reseller sites, with no luck.

I mean my falttening iron has a pretty descent cable, my extensioncord in the garage is much easier to handle than those supplied with my 3D printer, PC, Laptop etc...

Is there no such thing as powercords of higher grade plastic/rubber and a lot of bendy bendy copper filaments?

If you are talking about single cables then take a look at the silicone-sleeve cable used by radio-control builders. It's very flexible, has a high current-carrying capacity, and not too expensive.

For example: HobbyKing cable

This is just an example - any place that sell parts for radio-controlled electric aircraft, boats and vehicles will sell this stuff.

Good tip but I want ready made cable. IEC C7 and IEC C14 connectors (as far as I know) are not avaliable separately to make your own cable. And if they were they would be too bulky.
