    Hi,

    I was just given two amps, but unfortunately I don`t have the power cables for them and I am a complete noob so I don`t know which ones to buy. The manuals say they take IEC cables, but I am thrown off by the 2.5A and 4A fuses. The IEC C13 cable seems to be the most common power cable here in Australia so that would be my best bet, but they are 10A. Do I need to have power cables that are lower than the fuse ampere, or am I good to go with the IEC C13 cables like this?

    Here are photos of my amps power inputs:

    those are the cables you want. they're rated for "up to 10A"

    you want the fuse to be rated lower than the cable, otherwise your cable becomes the weak point, which is bad.
