This shielded cable is a highly effective and economical way to reduce electric field and "dirty electricity" (a component of the electric field) which normally emanates from all energized wiring. Energized wiring includes all of the wiring inside walls/ceilings/floors, and especially the wiring closest to our bodies - electric cords plugged-in. Lamp cords, computer power cords, alarm clocks, extension cords, everything.
This 6 foot cable has a standard plug on one end - 3-prong plug that plugs into the outlet. On the other end is the computer power style hookup. So this cord can directly replace any and all computer power cables for desktop computers, and most/many monitors/computer screens, some TVs, stereos, and other things.
For devices that do not have this type of hookup, or devices that are hard-wired, a modification can be made to this cable. The rubber end with the computer style hookup can be cut, the plastic jacket stripped back, wires separated, and this can be hard-wired into devices to offer shielding. This work should be done by a certified electrician or electronics repair person.
We use these all around the office and home to replace ordinary non-shielded cords. Great for metal body lamps - ground the ground wire securely to the metal body of the lamp to further shield it. Lighting stores or a lamp repair person can usually do this.
