Default Re: Another unusual plug and some other questions

I would consider it foolhardy to use old style UK round pin sockets for 24 volt DC if they were already used in the same premises for AC mains.

For relatively new or re-wired premises though, the old round pin 5 amp and 15 amp outlets are ideal for 24 volt DC supplies.
I have seen the 15 amp sockets used for intermittent loads of a lot more than 15 amps, not best practice but they never even got warm.
