Furutech Powerflux Power Cord is crazy expensive

Do you ever sometimes feel less than intelligent? Perhaps you think you have a rudimentary grasp of science and technology but one day when you’re faced with something particularly complex, you feel a bit inadequate and question your own intelligence. Yeah, that’s where I am now after seeing the Furutech Powerflux Power Cord. It costs $1,800 and while the company provides ample reason for the high price tag, I can’t say I understand a bit of it.

For instance, the “conductors are 68-strand α (Alpha) OCC twisted around μ–conductor strands with a special-grade PE insulation or dielectric.” Um, okay! They go on to explain that the conductors are OCC wire that have been treated with the the company’s Alpha Cryogenic and Demagnetizing process.

There’s RoHS-compliant PVC, carbon powder, braid shields and more. There’s even an outer sheath of PVC that has a Nylon braid jacket. And the connectors are a part of the Piezo Ceramic series that feature carbon fiber and acetal copolymer with nonmagnetic stainless steel bands surrounding it. And I don’t think I can go on. It’s too much. Brain may explode.
