I was looking for an extension lead and found this. This is a great deal for a highly rated surge protected 4 gang extension lead. Hopefully will help someone else too.

Shocking

I read the review. I certainly wouldn't risk one of these...
There seems to be a lot of electrically unsafe products on sale on Amazon and the likes. How are these sellers getting away with this? Aren't there minimum safety standards that are mandated by UK law. Surely these products are not passing those?

Also the reviewer stated "I am prepared to believe this is probably a one off and I have deducted two stars from an otherwise five-star product".

It has 24 4 & 5 star reviews otherwise.

I have 2 of these and not experienced any problems.

Take your general point, but regardless of how many reviews on Amazon there are, I would take them with a pinch of salt. They have an active reviewer program, as does HUKD these days....sadly! There’s even a website that you can use to scan Amazon reviews to look for the more-suspicious activity on product feedback!! Kind of tells you all you need to know about Amazon reviews.

It is one of the reviewers that posted the comments detailed above and so one would guess he won’t be getting any more reviews to do in the future!

Clearly these items were put together are not tested, otherwise how could you end up with a direct short and it not be picked up by quality control?!
I have a few of these 2 and 3 gang now. Its nice they can be mounted properly on the wall and overall I am very pleased with mine.

Show me any product that doesn't have at least some faults. Look at how many Dyson refurbs there are available, for example

"Fake" reviews are everywhere take John Lewis for example. 13 positive reviews of a microwave oven, all 13 were supplied free of charge by the manufacturer or John Lewis.

How many are there? Do they have dangerous electrical faults? Is this justification for purchasing an electrical item from an unknown Chinese manufacturer that clearly has no quality control!?

Agreed! But i would trust John Lewis every day of the week, over Amazon.

No, thanks.
Similar spec at B&M Ever Ready brand £4.99
Thanks but not thanks. This might turn out to be a very expensive £8.99 for me.
