have caution in buying this. a lot of devices that charge with a transformer in the plug have the power cable come out of the top of the plug and not the bottom. this design makes that often impossible to use all the sockets..

Every extension lead I have I cannot use all the sockets. Big transformers, wires coming out the tops or bottom. I have strips, towers, staggered. Unless you are using something bog standard it always wastes a space.
I think designers do it on purpose

I ended up buying a tower which has been designed to avoid this problem. only problem is it cost about £30 !!! it has three switches for each layer of sockets and the USB sockets are full output too and not shared :)

Not sure if the power button is big enough... oO

New Flats in London are smaller then the surge socket, not sure if it fits.

Better off buying one from CPC then you can choose the length of the lead. I needed a 5 metre one myself but didn't need 8 sockets so got the following one for £8.53.

No USB charging ports admittedly.

If this is put under a desk at work or something, I can see someone's foot hitting the on-off switch and turning everybody's computers off. Okay... I can see myself doing that X)

Yeah and since when do they power off USB?! In fact they were all made before USB was invented, even the ones still on sale :D

Occasionally I have to fax, but don't use a fax machine per se, rather our networked printer/scanner/copier with its fax function. Pretty sure it's not USB powered though!

You should really start using boxers now, so much more comfy!

Can't see point if this without individual switches. For those that are not electrically savvy . standard wall sockets rated at 15a. which means if you plug this into a standard wall socket assuming each device is rated at 3a you can only plug/use 5 devices any one time or less if any device pulls more than 3a otherwise you'll blow the fuse(s).

This is rated at 13 amps which is more than sufficient to run 2 computers 2 monitors 2 printers and 2 laptops without overloading.
If you used to run 1 iron then yes you've reached your safe capacity.
I do agree individual switches would be better.
This isn't really designed for anything other than protecting computer equipment and the likes Not Your domestic appliances.
This explains better
