As we know NZ is metric.
So why are places selling cable in gauge (totally meaningless) and AWG (of very little meaning) in NZ?
As they are not defined in the weights and measures act, I could sell anything as 10gauge cable so long as somewhere in the listing I had the actual mm^2 cross section, right?
Since there is a hell of a lot of dodgey speaker cables out there with "gauge" measurements that mean nothing, why are sellers of them allowed to get away without providing the true cross sectional area of the cables?
Who covers this type of stuff in NZ. If I buy some "10 gauge" cable off someone and it ends up being lamp cable, would I have any right of complaint if they had not listed any mm^2 area in the listing?
