If you were to use 1 iron in this then You have reached Your limit 13 Amps-3000 watts
But Put All The following In At The Same Time - Xbox, TV - DVD Player - Sky Box You have reached 3 Amps-600 Watts. So still plenty to go at.
Basically its intended purpose You will be safe.
So?
Is there any doubt?
It's fitted with a 13 amp fuse, you can't draw more than that of course. As with any extension lead.

I got one of these a while ago. It seems like an odd design flaw but is fairly obvious if you look on the photos of the product, basically the switches are set too close to the socket. They work fine to plug in a standard 13A plug but anything that has a transformer built into the plug will either hit the switch when you plug it in or obscure the switch so that you can't turn it on or off.
Might not bother some people but really frustrating for me as I installed it in the kitchen right where I want to plug in my radio but it won't fit.
Also the switch operation feels really cheap on these, really stands out compared to the rest of the sockets in the house which are all MK or Schneider.

thank you very much for this insight

Active circuitry in walls is not for me, also I am dubious of the quality of the output of these too. Would be good to get one on a scope to measure. However comparison to others offering the same it's a good deal.
They do have BS 5733 & BS 1363 kitemarks on the £8 ones, suspiciously missing from the £6 ones

Ohh dear:(, I wonder why they failed or maybe they just didn't bother applying?

stupid question. What is the "twin earth"?

I bought a pack of the argos 2.1amp ones the other week (just installed this weekend gone), and it had a single earth connection. But installing it in existing socket#1 and I had 2 of each wire type (screwed in together of course), but on the socket#2 downstairs, I'm pretty sure there was only 1 of each wire....does that mean it would not work if only a single wire setup?

Are these easy to swap in new build homes? Just quick swap or needs new holes etc?

Standard fitment, straight swap, at worst you may need a paint touch up around the socket but doubt it very much.
They say 'fits a 25mm backbox' which is about as small as backboxes go. I would never use a 25mm backbox with any half decent socket.
Personally, I don't think they're a good idea anyway

i think this has expired, the code no longer works.
4% QUIDCO too which works with the B17WT04 15% code
I had only noticed the one here but when I went to the site decided on two sets. I thought I had seen both listings but could not find the other one. Also I have now just ordered the toolbox separately. Just a pity I can't get everything in the one branch.

Just a comment here, I ordered two different sets using the code but instead of getting 15% off I only got 7.5% off.
I did mention in another thread about about purchasing multiple sets as separate resevations. I will also update this one for clarity.

I did not notice at the time but I have just gone in and placed two separate orders and got the 15% off each. Weird but fortunately one branch is near work and the other is where I will be passing by tomorrow, so the one from work will get returned next week.

and for gaming, amd has yet again produced garbage which is bad for us as intel can charge whatever they want.
And yet Intel has suddenly brought forward their new cpus & platforms by at least 3 months, implying price drops on current ones in due course...
Yep and already specs on yet another motherboard release with the 300 series, I don't know about you guys but I'm getting sick of intel releasing a new chipset motherboard every year with nothing but the most basic upgrades, it's become a joke it's like there grasping at straws while scalping joe public and now it just aggravates me to see another.
the complete blitz of z270 boards released overpriced pieces of junk blanketing the market with an obscene amount of boards with asus being the worst separating them by as little as a usb 3 header and Wi-Fi module, what a joke.
To be fair the mobo makers make very little on each board. Thats why ecs, abit and sapphire(mobo unit) went up in smoke.
Oh come on they're making plenty, built by machine using cheaply bough Chinese components running all day spinning out boards oh they're making plenty of money, profit is high but here's the thing right now on amazon most sales on the top 100 mobo's are for H series and B series both intel and amd, there are more z170 boards in the top 100 than there are z270 and that's just in the u.k. so that should tell them something.
The market is massively shrunk since the 2000s heyday. Note that i'm not talking about intel's desire to produce a new chipset per 2 cpu generations
Ye I agree with that, imo they brought it on themselves and there really doing themselves damage now prices are just to high and it pushes people to the used market and were all recycling old systems that are still just as good but now these companies make little to no money where if they'd priced better then it would not be worth shopping the used market, prices are up as a result sales are down and its there own fault for the greed increasing profit margins, there's enough used gear out there for us all and there's little innovation being done, plenty of greed and corruption but not much else.
Nvidia sales plummeted this year which is why all the price drops and promises of refreshes and volta this year hoping an injection or performance will make them money, blind to the fact that it's all about the money if the 1070 was priced better or the titan which should really only be a $500 card then I'd be buying graphics cards every gen, maybe not titans but 1070's at £250-£275 for sure the 1060/1160's should be the sweet spot card at £175-£200 yet is some cases there almost £300 asus at it again with 3 fans no less lol.
intel are also in trouble selling overpriced items people can't afford and issues with 10nm, now with amd upping the game they're in bad shape trying to push through x299 which will not be great and cost wattage with there lowest chip at around 125 watts where ryzen is 95w and still these morons haven't caught on nobody can buy these items the longer you charge these prices the less money you make we all buy used systems and are happy therefor we don't need to buy new even when they do drop prices.

I don't think personally consumer £250-300 mobo is warranted. Nvidia has massively overpriced their cards, nearly everything they have ever done outside their gfx cards has been a flop. Who remembers their nvtv card ?.. :D

the downward spiral of desktop, is down to tablets and smart phones.Yet, intel and nvidia jacked their prices up, which killed the sector even further. Old school economics.

21mm nuts on my car and although these wrenches are slightly better than the one the manufacturer issues they are no good whatsoever if the nuts have been tightened by an excited fitter with a new windy gun. The angle of the bar is all wrong and should be closer to 90 degrees for them to work more effectively. Ask any engineer. The tool has been designed by someone who was looking at cars from 50 years ago when cars had skinny tyres and were cloaked by the wheel arches. They are fine if the nuts are not too tight but I broke one of these trying to get the nuts undone on my son's Astra. Buy one by all means, take it to someone who has got a gas an air torch, heat it up and straighten the bar closer to 90 degrees and make sure it's dipped in oil to cool it down, not water. Then it may be just perfect as well as cheap.
I think you're using the wrong mechanic mate, mine uses a torque wrench on my wheels

There's the thing though. Tyre fitters are not mechanics. I stopped to give a young lad a hand once seeing him at the side of the road with a blow out. He had hit a large pot hole and blown his tyre. In the middle of nowhere. The tyre was brand new as he had just had a set fitted at garage in Hull. They used to do just tyres and exhausts but they do car servicing as well (allegedly). I was in my works van at the time and in all my time of changing wheels and doing my own car repairs I have never come across nuts as tight as these. I had my socket set if the van and a three foot breaker bar and had to jump on it to get the nuts off. I guess whoever did the tyres thought steel wheels had to be on tighter than alloys or perhaps they had forgotten to reset their gun from doing a truck as they do truck tyres as well. I told him to go back to the garage and get them to undo all the nuts and torque them down by hand.

these should come with a 21mm and 23mm socket as well i wonder how many people buy this then do not realize the socket does not fit the wheel studs on there car,so check to make sure your car wheel users 17mm or 19mm studs

Of course some cars do have 21 or 23, but mainly larger wheels. All of my cars have had either 17 or 19, also all of my vans are 19.... If you have a 21 or 23 this is obviously not for you

worth upgrading from a ASUS H81M Plus? I know nothing about motherboards. I was going buy DoW 3 so I might just get this also as this seems like a good deal for essentially £120 or so

They are a different socket I believe so you would also need a processor and DDR4 RAM.

Careful of Ebuyer, as much as I use them, was left more than just a bit dissapointed at a previous deal like this when the headphones didn't turn up. Apparently somewhere in the small print it says "whilst stock is available" or similar. I thought I had ordered fairly quick so they can't have had many in, bit cheeky if you ask me. Needless to say I returned the item out of principle.
Hot otherwise!
Wow thats really sneaky :(

It's not really sneaky as it's quite common for these sorts of offers to be limited by stock number or date.
Disappointing when it happens so best to ask before buying to reduce the chance of that.
Good luck.

Wish I had seen this sooner! I bought https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001D4PSUY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for £12.57 a few days ago (now cheaper!!).

Thanks for the tips on making sure it's fully unwound - will be using it for TV, games console and Sky box.
Brought, can I use for connecting multiple consoles and a tv?
Dodge62
Be aware that generally you can only use the full amps rating when fully unwound. When wound, it will tend to overheat (not quite sure why, probably due to induction) if used at max rating. Looks like this has an overheat sensor (the red button to reset) which is certainly better than it catching fire.
Yes, make sure you unwind it if you are approaching maximum capacity. It is because having the cable in close proximity to itself does not allow the heat to dissipate, and clearly this cable is made to a price point, which means it will get warm.

And remember that this cable does not have a residual current device, so it should not be used outside. Do not use it with a lawn mower - that is outright dangerous.

I could but I would be using it for my electric vehicle Charging. Which is rated 13amp and pulls at max load for 6 hrs, rather than a few secs peak load. Only once did I use a 13a extension roll and after 10 minutes I stopped as the whole reel was very hot. Although on the second attempt I completely unwinded it and it got warm instead of melting hot.

What ev are u charging. Nissan Leaf chargers are 10amp rated. They reduce the amp from 2014. Also can buy evse charger that u can adjust the amp all the way down to 6amp .
SFconvert
I really wish they wouldn't sell 10amp extension leads, people don't know enough about current to use these safely. Pulling 13amp through one over more than a few minutes will result in them getting very hot. There are lots of appliances over 10amps (eg garden shredders) that people will try to use things like this with. Yes the fuse will likely blow, but too many people will just replace a 10amp fuse with 13 amp one. And with more people using these for charging electric vehicles (which can draw a pretty constant 13amps over a long period of time), expect lots more electrical fires....

That won't happen, this extension lead has thermal cut out safety feature!

These are extremely dangerous, PLEASE make sure when you use them you pull all the cable out otherwise they can get too hot and burst into flames.
Does depend on what you are powering, the thermal cut out should prevent overheating though. Being only 5 metres though it shouldnt get too hot even at 10amp.
Will they extend this deal?

Was going to buy it but it's £24.99 now.
Is it 2.1A per USB port, or shared between 4 ports?
I bought one of these for about £22 and they're great. So bought another.
Worth your pennies
I have had this for 6 months or so and its great, the USB charges 2 iPad Pros very quickly and 2 iPhones at the same time with no problems.

FYI, its £24.99 now

extremely stupid question here so i apologise - i am looking at getting a hot tub for outside but have no outside plug sockets, how would I go about sorting that out? Is it something the ordinary person can do or will it require an electrician?
Thanks
If you were to hard wire it then it would be notifiable under Part P and you would need a qualified electrician to do it. If you simply wired it to a plug and then plugged that into an existing socket (using an RCD plug would be highly recommended) then it could be argued it isn't fixed wiring and simply an extension lead and hence you could do it yourself. My recommendation, however, is that you put it in the hands of a professional. They will then also check your fixed wiring and ensure earth continuity, lop resistance etc. No point saving a few quid and risking a life.
This is great advice. You're spending a good bit on the hot tub. It is wet and has electric running it. Spend a little more and make sure you and your family are safe. Get a Part P registered qualified electrician to do it. Make sure they certify it too
Fully agree.
Being a sparky, my take on it is that if you're having to ask, you shouldn't be doing it.

Fellow sparky. I'm sure we're all biased. But what people ask for advice on would make my hair curl... if I had any
Just out of curiosity what's a ball park figure for fitting an external socket? Please.

There are more variables than you think, which means the price could differ greatly from one property to another. As already stated, proximity and ease of installation is one, but also age and condition of existing installation is another. If you have a 17th edition compliant distribution board, and your bonding is adequate, and the installation would just be drilling straight out from an existing socket, then price would be quite cheap as the level of work and materials required is low. You'd ideally need to get someone to have a look.
It would depend upon the proximity of existing power to take the power from. If it was close and not much running cable around the house to get to s power source. Also where in the country. In greater London £95 upwards

These are fantastic. The waterproofing at the very bottom of the socket where the cables come out is very tight and it makes it hard to push the bottom of the plug in properly where there's a thick cable, but you can safely leave things plugged in when it's sealed. Heat added.

Absolute danger, avoid like the plague there have been attempts to ban them.
As per other posts, not needed due to UK socket design. Putting something in a socket that opens the shutters to 'protect' kids isn't great...
ScottyMelotty
There are arguements to say these can be more dangerous than not having them. An arguement I'm not going to get into. Just google "Are plug socket covers safe?" You will find a range of opinions


Agree British sockets are arguably the safest in the world and compromised by these types of thing which give a perfect way to defeat the safety measures
UK sockets have shutters to stop this from happening...snapping one of these in half allows someone to them insert into the earth pin socket to reveal the live socket below, allowing a means to open the otherwise shuttered socket. A somewhat pointless invention I feel. Curious children are more likely to fiddle about with this plastic thing than the socket I suspect.

Literally no point ever buying this CPU. I can't even think of one reason why.
Only reason would be if you've already got an AM3 setup (with sufficient PSU and cooler) and this gives you the extra performance you need now which may make £149 better immediate value than switching to Intel or even Ryzen when you will also have to factor in new mboard + new DDR4.
There was really only one use for these and that is virtualisation (well and possible some media encoding as long as it's not AVX2 or FPU heavy). That is sometimes having 8 integer cores is useful. But for those of these usages, the 8320E is a far better value than this pre-overclocked processor. However, AM3+ is a totally dead socket.
Of course, 8+ core Ryzen or Intel HEDT perform a lot better that these tasks but even Ryzen 7 costs at least twice of this.

poison3k
You can get a g4xx for half the price which outperforms this cpu, for the same money you can pick up an i5 which is twice as good.
At single-threaded stuff? Sure, but for the two niche usage cases above (virtualisation and media encoding) 2C/4T is often not enough.
What's the best AMD cpu for purely desktop speed. As in internet browsing and office programs. No real graphics. For under £100?
This is in the wrong section .. should be in Household - heating - this is cheap for a heater of this power.. could use it in a greenhouse AND do some folding on the side...

I was about to get the smaller sl25. Think it is worth buying this larger set, suppose it is doubling the price for 46 instead of 25 but you do get extra ratchets and extension bars.

I probably only own about 6 tools as it is so could be handy.

Seems to get a lot of good reviews, so is your comment from experience with this set Bilbo1968?
I know the saying "buy cheap, buy twice" is common here, but it wasn't cheap to start with.
My son had one and took it back after the ratchet slipped because the socket distorted while removing a 13mm bolt - and no the bolt was not particularly tight - spent 3 hours in a minor injury unit.
As with all these cheap socket sets made in China they aren't up to much in my experience, but I'm sure there will be loads of people who say it's a wonderful set so you pay's your money and you make your choice. :)
Are sure it was this set? as there is no 13 mm 1/2 drive socket .Just got this set and sockets seem very hard steel as well
Cant mark them with good quality punch would not think sockets would distort either
Actually surprised at quality of set even for £39 full price ratchets seem good as well
Sounds like you had different set to this as some of the Challenge socket sets at Argos are junk but
not this one .Does state chrome vanadium so dont think they would just be mild steel
Been in the engineering years so seen few tools used over priced snapon
In heavy engineering now my tools are supplied there Bahco and britool
These dont compare to Bahco britool snapon but there top quality budget tools
Yep - it was this one. As I said he may have had a faulty set who knows.
So was it the 13mm 1/4 got injured with
Was bit worried it would be junk after reading your comment,s
Been in garage attacking with hard punch and trying to break them on seized
nut n bolts only succeeded shearing of some bolts with not damage to tools
Yes - I believe so, but even 1/4 should not have distorted, do you not agree?
Distorted 13mm socket with 1/4 drive ratchet sounds bit of a pork pie lol (_;)
Then ended up in A&E using dinky little 1/4 drive ratchet X)
You're a bit weird and it wasn't funny - let's hope people don't laugh at you next time you're in casualty - enjoy punching your sockets oO
Just saying your little story does not ring true really no mention of it been tiny 1/4 drive ratchet as first
Till you found out set does not have 13mm 1/2 drive socket
Not saying accident did not happen but not with this set, any way you can carry on with your little story
if you like .May be you should have checked it had 13mm 1/2 socket before comment then even i would

Seems to get a lot of good reviews, so is your comment from experience with this set Bilbo1968?
I know the saying "buy cheap, buy twice" is common here, but it wasn't cheap to start with.
My son had one and took it back after the ratchet slipped because the socket distorted while removing a 13mm bolt - and no the bolt was not particularly tight - spent 3 hours in a minor injury unit.
As with all these cheap socket sets made in China they aren't up to much in my experience, but I'm sure there will be loads of people who say it's a wonderful set so you pay's your money and you make your choice. :)
Are sure it was this set? as there is no 13 mm 1/2 drive socket .Just got this set and sockets seem very hard steel as well
Cant mark them with good quality punch would not think sockets would distort either
Actually surprised at quality of set even for £39 full price ratchets seem good as well
Sounds like you had different set to this as some of the Challenge socket sets at Argos are junk but
not this one .Does state chrome vanadium so dont think they would just be mild steel
Been in the engineering years so seen few tools used over priced snapon
In heavy engineering now my tools are supplied there Bahco and britool
These dont compare to Bahco britool snapon but there top quality budget tools
Yep - it was this one. As I said he may have had a faulty set who knows.
So was it the 13mm 1/4 got injured with
Was bit worried it would be junk after reading your comment,s
Been in garage attacking with hard punch and trying to break them on seized
nut n bolts only succeeded shearing of some bolts with not damage to tools
Yes - I believe so, but even 1/4 should not have distorted, do you not agree?
Distorted 13mm socket with 1/4 drive ratchet sounds bit of a pork pie lol (_;)
Then ended up in A&E using dinky little 1/4 drive ratchet X)
You're a bit weird and it wasn't funny - let's hope people don't laugh at you next time you're in casualty - enjoy punching your sockets oO
Just saying your little story does not ring true really no mention of it been tiny 1/4 drive ratchet as first
Till you found out set does not have 13mm 1/2 drive socket
Not saying accident did not happen but not with this set, any way you can carry on with your little story
if you like .May be you should have checked it had 13mm 1/2 socket before comment then even i would
have believed it

Picked up this socket set yesterday seems really good quality even for full price
Ratchets extensions sockets ect all good quality
But can see why did not sell though as strangely they have omitted smaller sockets 10,11,12,13 mm ?
But on plus side it goes up to 32mm as most finish at 24mm

Better money wise yet but bottom of the barrel Chinese components, and not even worth the £100 just ask any electrical engineer friend of family member, they'll give you the heads up, it's the same with all boards made last few gens now just cheap crap with flash vanity attachments that's why failure rates are so high, asus msi, gigabyte etc are to blame here not so much intel or amd just greedy board manufacturers, my advice by used z97 or maybe find a decent z170 used but there failure rate was high.
Z97 and Z170 aren't even AM4 boards. What a bizarre comment? Heat added.
Ok, so to translate "buy a different board altogether to go with your completely different intel processor". Heat still added for this deal unless you want old technology.

Whilst I agree with some of the comments pointed out about boards being overly expensive due to the use of 'bling' on them, there is a great deal more in terms of value add to try and compete with each other. Look at the integration of much better sound chips, these come at a cost, along with up-gradable amplifier modules, things like 5Gbps networking IC's and then the there is the addition of Wi-FI and other such addons, again these all odd physical and licensing costs.

Yes, some of the board manufacturers are taking the pee slightly, but now that there is some competition between the two largest CPU manufacturers again, then there will be competition to price motherboards more aggressively.

With regards to reliability, I would be surprised if there was a much larger than normal failure rate out of the box than that of any previous generations released, and much of that would be early batch (beta) issues, or BIOS problems rather than complete duff boards.

I also am a big fan of 1/4 inch as most of my work is the motorbike and bolts on old kawasakis are made of cheese.
Luckily I woke up a bit more before ordering. These are 3/8 not 1/4, and while I own both types of bahco kit my little SL25 kit gets way more use so 3/8 is probably not the best way for me to go. But then again I use that more as its portable, and the other kit is a lot heavier, but I'd rarely need these really unless I had my 'big' kit. Decisions!

Some other cheap bahco stuff on there too.
Why can't they say IF they are made of Chrome Vanadium steel
Really don't need them, but they match my socket set so....

halfords tools last forever, I bought a hammer 25 years ago and it's only had 2 new heads and 2 new handles.
So your 25 year old hammer has actualy been 3 hammers?
Full time sale, been half price for a long time. Still decent price
The 200 is currently £140 if you have the trade card.

They're great tools...I've rebuilt my RS4 with one...

Thanks for the replies, I ended up going for the 1/2". Didn't see your post Mr Bump until I had it bought

The tools are super value for money, it's just a shame that it doesn't have a proper case -- certainly nothing portable that you can tip sideways as the thin plastic lid is so flimsy that the bits cave it in and fall out. But for £21 it can't be faulted really.
That's because the tray is designed to fit in the drawer of a steel tool chest and not as its own tool box
Any further discount on the £25 price please ?

I need a pricision screwdriver set that's perfect for repairing anything from an xbox 360 controller to macbook. Any advice?
All those sound like low torque applications so you don't need anything massively expensive, just look on ebay and amazon for a set with torx bits, usually around 12-20 quid will get you a good set, you don't need to spend loads.

Would have been great value if it were metric only. Sadly.
Sadly Stanley no longer has the reputation it used to for quality. Stanley still make decent knives and manual planes (if people don't go for power planes) but ultimately they are now a budget tool manufacturer making a killing out of historical reputation.

Buying a Stanley screwdriver is a bit like buying a YSL t-shirt in JJB (although probably a bit more practical for removing screws I appreciate).

Silly question but if you leave the charging cable in the usb socket after charging, is there a risk of fire? at least with a plug you switch it off at the socket?
Check on You tube
How difficult is it to mount / connect it?
Is it a DIY sort of thing, replacing a regular socket?
Sorry if I sound very ignorant.

Bought one of these a year back, used the USB sockets once. Drawer junk ON YOUR WALL.
Proveright
You can buy extension leads with usb sockets included , so I don't need these/Op,s as I just plug the extension in the wall and turn it on when needed. An electrical device only draws the power that it needs so I cannot see that being a problem with charging phones.

What I dont understand is, if these are switched sockets , surely the switch controls the 3 pin and the usb ?
If not why not ? .


Yes on Amazon.
Make sure you have content and building insurance before going on holidays, in case if you forget to switch this thing off.

Not sure about these, but the ones I had the USB ports were always live. The switch only killed power to the 3-pin sockets.

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!
Yes its the same deal here. Except more like 10 times a day. Who needa emails

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
