Or that you could do that legally, but yung-li is a large manufacturer
of power cables that do have all the right marks and documents so the
chances are good that they would be legal. I still dont know if they
would be a declarable item tho. Risks are too high IMO that you would be
left with a whole lot of stuff that you cant move on legally and some
pencilpusher from ESS with a vendetta against you making it impossible.

Not really, many companies there build up racks etc to send out
overseas, just like in china all the foreign cables etc are easily
available, even legit ones with all the test results.
