Extension lead for a vending machine

Post by DarthVendor »

Hi,

Just wanted to ask if it is OK to power a tabletop coffee vending machine through a single socket (gang) 10m extension lead as the wall socket is not close to where the machine has been placed?

Does anyone power their vending machines through an extension lead?

Thanks
