The KS Premier employs two forms of welding to fuse the conductor to the machined prong: cold and hot.
Cold welding exerts thousands of pounds of pressure supplied through the force of a hydraulic press to squeeze the two metals together such that the metal structure of the two pieces actually fuse together.
To further insure a perfect connection, we then solder each of the machined prongs with high silver content solder in a hot welding technique that creates the perfect bond.
Hermetically sealed for protection
To address the issue of long term conductivity and eliminate problems such as oxidation, KS Power engineers designed an outer shell that is molded over the machined, cold and hot welded connectors.
This molding process, which also incorporates a built in strain relief, keeps the outer elements away from the all-important fusion of the prongs to the conductors.
Why didn't I think of that?
One of the most useful innovations with the Kingsnake Power series and Premier power cable is a removable ground pin. The ground pin on a power cable is there to tie the ground of the AC receptacle to your equipment. However, in some cases, this ground pin can create a ground loop and cause hum and buzz in your system.
To neutralize the ground loop, audio and theater enthusiasts have traditionally used what is known as a heater plug? A cheater plug is an inexpensive three-prong to two-prong adapter
