for £6.95 you can get a 6 way switchable from most diy stores
i searched around for a 6 gang one a while back for use with a UPS so i wanted them all switchable, and didnt need the surge protection crap.... ended up getting one from argos !

would much prefered to have gotten a "named" brand one though, although that said, first thing i had to do was swap the cable out for a longer one with the right plug i needed on it !
£1.99 on ebuyer a while back maybe check there see if the offer still going?
yeah - missed the e buyer and not seen anything since.

£15 from places like B&Q and Maplin, can't see many for much less than that?

Other options:

Wilkinson - 6 Way Extension Lead Individually Switched 2m - £8.77 (£5.50 postage though)
Argos - 6 Socket Individually Switched 1m Extension Lead - £9.79
Did toy with the idea of this too - remote controlled - and reduced!


Not sure if they are reliable though
interestingly that is not the argos one i got, i think mine cost more than that, and each socket switch has its own neon indicator, not that i really wanted them !

only thing i find with it is if the switches are flicked with the pluged in item on, then it can ark a little and you see it through the case !

I would probably have gone for the wilkinson one had i seen it previously... as the lead is 2m long, 1m is jsut too short, so i had to change the lead as well as the plug for my needs ! the one i have seems to do the job ok though,

I saw that remote one earlier too and have to admit i was interested !

Found they were all that price excluding postage thats why I posted - but with the caveat that you have to collect - lucky if you live near a Halfords (maybe)...

fiver seems better to me....not everyone wants so many:roll:
And to conclude, when I got there they hadn't got the damned thing anyway. Thank you Halfords and feel free to vote cold!
