I've noticed that some Mains 120/240V Voltage plugs are a gold color and some are a silver cover. I'm talking about the kind of plug pins on something that plugs into a standard 15A/20A receptacle. Are plug pins made of brass or is it something else? If it is brass, can any brass work or are there certain properties to the material that make it electrical grade?
I don't want an entire plug, just the pins. I'm hoping for plug pins that could work for a variety of devices (computer charger, cell phone charger, night light, toaster, microwave, etc...). I want something standard, obviously electrical grade, that can handle that kind of pull. How do I know what material my plug pins need to be made of?
As I have tried to search, the only companies that show up are based in India and there seems to be no way to just order some plug pins without doing a huge bulk order. Where can they be purchased?
