Testing recalled Infinity cables: outer insulation

Summary: Shows how the Infinity cables prematurely degrade when exposed to high temperatures.

Published: 22 September 2014

This Infinity cable has poor insulation that will degrade from 2016.

Bending this, you can see there’s no problem yet.

However, this sample has been in a test oven to predict its performance in hot spaces such as rooves. Bending it, the protective insulation breaks, exposing the inner wire.

Over time, this could be very dangerous.
