I have a long time affinity for Metz flash since my years of wonderful past and current good experience with my 60CT-4 powerhouse flash with dry fit power pack. I now use 58AF-2 on my canon camera(with P76 power pack). The 58AF-2 is not a pro workhorse flash. period. It's good and I've gotten used to it and all in all I like it more than 580 EXII. So I depend on this power cable/cord since I want the power and fast recycling of the P76. The cord is relatively expensive and it does not last very long in heavy use before malfunctioning. I believe that before and after the in-line 'overheating' "fuse" is where the cable's inner wires must break and disconnect. I now use black vinyl electrician's tape at these two points to "shore up" these two weak points. Maybe this will make it last longer. The end which connects to the battery gets 'loose' and disconnects periodically also, (some 'lock' is needed). Metz needs to improve this flash/pack combo to be a more pro workhorse instrument. They also need an East coast( US) repair partner.
