Great deal. It is better to get something like this from CPC rather than on eBay where you might get a cheaper one but a chinese import that hasn't had the required testing/certifications to ensure it is safe.

Not surge protected so i wouldn't plug lots of stuff into it anyway.
Amazon reviews also state its a bit wobbly too so may want to make sure any heavier plugs are at the base.

Good price I suppose, tenner on Amazon

Bought one of these from CPC 5 years ago for the living room. It has had 7 devices plugged in constantly with the other 3 used irregularly and never had a problem.

MOST of the items sold in British shops come from CHINA, DODGY European or other third world countries because our "TRUSTY" politicians have encouraged the SELL OFF AND GIVE AWAY of Britain to others to make the rich RICHER.
lol, they've destroyed our PROUD heritage and tradition OF extension lead manufacturing.

Why not? In Britain we used to manufacture basic household goods to a very high standard, and it wasn't seen as joke when that was the case.. It's OK I know you're only joking but, see my point, manufacturing was something Britain was proud of.. and people would proudly take apprenticeships, be part of the trade of producing items like this that people use in their homes.. if you could project back, the humourous element of comments like that would get a "huh?" reaction, as it would be lost on people dismayed by the cost of housing, inequality, superfluous consumer garbage people surround themselves with, and all the other consequences of exploiting cheap overseas labour at the expense of quality and our own economy..

I'm tempted by the price of this, but I've seen teardowns of cheap chinese extensions and quite shocking the build quality, and I don't know if this is one of those dodgy ones or built to a better standard..

Presumably it has to meet the very basic EU standards.. for now.. :|

And it would have cost at least 45 quid in today's money. When I was at college in the early 80's, beer in the college bar was 50p a pint and a four-way extension lead cost the best part of a tenner. What do you want, cheap stuff or British jobs? For most people, cheap stuff wins - sad as it might be.

And I'd dispute that the stuff we made was that good in any case. Look at Lucas car electrics - way inferior to anything coming out of far eastern plants today. Or cars in general - shoddy finishing, steel that started rotting two years after purchase, and engines that needed a rebuild after 50,000 miles.

Firstly, that is a fallacy argument as you've painted it as a black and white scenario. Britains manufacture base should (have) been retained in the areas where we have the natural resources and/or skills and infrastructure (most of the latter two have been sold off).

I studied externalisation of costs in economics - the externalised costs of cheap Chinese products are HUGE. These are invisible costs, supplementary to the £price ticket, that include intellectual property costs, costs to the environment, damage to our economy, infrastructure and labour force. Furthermore the cheapness relates to economies of scale, servitude, deplorable environmental and working standards (endemic in China) and exploitation of workers.

Secondly the cost you cite is no doubt a guess but it's probably on the cheap side. However if we had retained our industry it wouldn't' be £45. It would be more than £6.60, but as many of the population are slowly realising in the long term, it's a FALSE economy to export work, and import products, and it's wreaked havoc in the UK. In real terms, the cost may be £20-30 more to the British economy, than the ticket price, but externalised costs are not calculated and displayed to the public.

Again, fallacy argument. You're talking about decades past. If people were prepared to pay prices that are relative to what they are buying, British manufacturing would have improved technologically with other nations.

I could easily point you at a lot of market sectors where we were as good as the ROW.. but to put it another way - Germany does not depend on exploitation of a developing country to produce products that are well made. If Britain had invested in it's infrastructure rather than sold it off, we could too.

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a tower like this but with individual switches? Seems impossible to find in a tower....

I have a couple of these, the tower slots into the base, so you do not have to have it vertical, you can have it lying down flat on the floor . You can always plug it into a surge protector, if that's what you want.
You can never have too many sockets.The government are good at passing useless or unnecessary laws, well a it is about time they passed some useful ones and force all new builds to have a minimum number of sockets in each room , instead of the bare minimum they get away with nowadays.
