These are surge protected so are better than the usual cheap ones found at similar price. The cable length is 1 metre. Ideal for Hi-Fi's, Computers, Televisions etc.

I think the original price said £5.49. I can't find them online so maybe just be an instore deal.

I bought a 6 socket extension lead a few days ago from Tesco for £2 - reduced from £4.39 I think.
Didn't see the above one in the store, and this was an 'Extra' Tesco store too.

Surge protected schmurge protected - don't be fooled by the marketing because there is no evidence that it is anything more than that. Anything you plug into it that can be affected by "surges" will have surge protectors anyway, and if it gets struck by lighning no amount of "surge protection" is going to help. Don't let them create things for you to worry about.

Personally, If I was hit by a big surge, I would prefer a surge strip to stop working in order to protect my expensive computer or HiFi. They are easier to replace. And yes it has happened to me.

its not just lightening though...

these are good if like me you have about 20 electrical items in your bedroom.......i have the need for 20 plugs, and if i used normal extension leads there is a bigger risk of somethign goign wrong....

more protected with a surge's in place...

I've been looking for a six socket plus surge protected, individually switched, extension lead at DIY stores but had no luck. Does anyone know where I could find one at a reasonable price?

So would I. But you are making the basic assumption that this will actually happen. It's just as likely that you are being duped by the marketing into buying something which will offer no practical protection at all. It's not like saying "this tin contains 500g of baked beans" - there is no specification to prove what it actually does. You could argue that ANY extension lead offers surge protection because the air gap between the live and other connections inside it will break down and arc across if there is enough voltage. There's no more to this than the outrageous claims made by suppliers of overpriced HDMI leads.

And yes it has happened to me.
What has - a "surge"? Tell me what happened.

Of course it isn't. But show me the specification provided for this extension lead that proves that it will do anything useful at all, in any circumstances.

Yes I tried HB a while ago but I'll check again see if they have any new stock. Will also try Wilko.
