Indeed, and a related problem that kind of irks me is how 13A plugs are
supplied with a 13A fuse so people wiring plugs assume it is correct and
fit something that should have a 3A with a 13A.
If I had a quid for every time I have seen something that really only
needed a 1A fuse fitted with a 13A, I'd be very weathy by now :)
Mind I believe that was the reason behind mandating that all new
electrical equipment be supplied with the plug pre-fitted, preferably
molded on and with the correct fuse.
