For IP66 protection (better protection against water, still needs to be raised) and includes a two socket extension, this would be safer,

You do come up with some unusual deals pennyfarthing.
This is a good price, but it worries me slightly when I see a 4G socket with no flex attached inside a weatherproof box - most likely for use outside. Someone out there will connect it to an ordinary piece of cable or flex and plug in into a 13A socket with no fault protection.

The vast majority of these boxes are IP54 including the masterplug brand which incidentally scores well from reviews.

I wouldn't get too hung up on IP ratings for these as providing you don't bury it in a garden pond or swimming pool I think you'll find it's perfectly fine for outdoor use.

I fitted an ip54 rated socket / light switch.. the hinge is on top guess where the water got in :) and blew the rcd..

IP66 all the way.

You can think what you like - that doesn't make it safe.

I do think what I like and I don't need you to say so! If you believe this isn't safe don't buy one - simple isn't it really' perhaps like you! ;)

Bought one in August and put it in garden for pump and air pumps for fish ponds, no problem whatsoever. Have opened to checked and there was a drop of water got inside. Good price but not a good deal, price is permanent, not reduced in anyway, so no vote for me.

typo * there wasn't a drop of water

Isn't that just a plastic box?
