Twist locks
« on: December 19, 2017, 12:49:54 AM »
Finishing up on my electric rebuild, converting from 110v too 220v. I'm about to put my twist lock recpticles in and realized I oversees on buying two L6's, I bought one L6 and one L5. Being as it is for a personal project and not normal use, can anyone give me a good reason not to use an L5? Its rated for 30amp.

You technically could use it even though L5-30 is marked as 125v. Since you are using it within "your" system and as long as the receptacle/plug configurations match, it should function on 220v.

It could cause some other unknown issue at a later point should you choose to make changes as you would need to make sure device configurations match or they will not mate.
