Hi,
I bought some antminer z9's and I'm trying to figure out the best solution to power it. I'm looking at the APW3++ PSU and I'm trying to figure out if I can use the following cable with it.


https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bitmain-APW3-PSU-Power-Supply-Cord-for-Antminer-Bitcoin-Dash-BTC-L3-D3-S9-ETH/391998011172?epid=20013923288&hash=item5b44e6f724:g:uVIAAOSwfXFapUkY
Can I use that and plug it in a normal outlet or will there will issues?


I've seen these plugs as well, which I wouldn't be able to use which is the start of my concern.

I also looked at PSU, but I'm concerned about getting one that doesn't have enough cables to power the Antminer Z9.

Any advice on this issue is greatly appreciated.

maybe maybe not

are you usa based?

will you use 120 volts?  you will melt an 18 awg wire

will you use 240 volts? you may not melt  an 18 awg wire

 a 14 awg wire is dead solid zero issues

  with 120 volts  

or with 240 volts.

I never bother with 18 awg wires

and if it was up to me I would shut that link down since I know some will try to run that psu on 120 watts and melt the wire


buy these instead

Personally if you are in the USA I'd first check Overstock dot com for the simple reason being that they happily take BTC for payment.
