Yet again my housekeeper keeps complaining that she cannot plug in her kettle, toaster, mini muffin oven, 55" 4K TV and Karcher pressure washer and charge her Moto G phone and Go Pro4 all at the same time. Having had enough of her complaints and furious to find her using this as excuse to not bake muffins I have instructed my purchasing team to aquire a solution and this is the best value they could find that would meet my stringent quality requirements (so I won't burn down the mansion)

I present to you the 5 way super socket multi USB charger solution.

My electrical consultant has advised me to not use all those appliances at once but I am assured the fusing in the plug will prevail should Mrs Blenkinsop overlead the lead.
EDIT: no surge protection in these models. Thanks to Melted for pointing this out, apt name in this case

I got sent a weekly deals leaflet from CPC and found it in there.
The interesting thing is CPC sometimes have 2 prices for the same identical product, you'll notice if you remove the last 2 digits of this product code it lists the usual price.

Now if only a search site could check this for you...... wait there is such a site and it's banned from here so I can't list the name but those that are smart could Google something like, um I don't know, maybe cpc check now and maybe they'd find the rather amerturish looking site... note the site often doesn't work for hours on end so be patient.

You will need to add a 10p (eg FF0290269) item to get the price above £6 then you get free postage. I wasn't clear on this until TuShae reminded me you have to spend £6 to get free post.

Cheers, ordered one in each colour, it'll save me two plugs as well running smart devices off the usb ports.
Cheers
How did you find this part code? This is an incredible deal. The part code from the catalogue they send out was £1 more

Re-edit: This isn't identical at all, it doesn't have surge protection. Well worth it for an extra £1

Thank you, that's very helpful. Mine had a totally different code but exactly the same specification sheet. Either way, I've just bought five of these to replace non-usb non-surgeP ones that are being used in various places. Won't ever have to worry about losing track of USB chargers now.

Just as well that you don't like surge because these models don't afford Surge any protection.

check the product images or the data sheet SURGE PROTECTION DATA (PL15144 & PL15145 only)

You need the models posted in the other deal for that:- hotukdeals.com/dea…664

Ah well, If he comes around uninvited, providing you MOV quickly, you can tie him up with your extension lead to prevent him busting your telly

Thanks for that. The other product is superior due to the surge protection and I would have missed it due to all the cold votes it has.
really at the MIN you need individually swtiched for a non-surge protected cheap extension thingy. But its a good price for 2 usb 2amps to be fair. I was actually going to buy it but then realised its not Indv switched! no can do.

Yes although he's a fidget and very resistive to being tied up.
anyone know if these are moulded or can you change the flex for a longer cable?

Spec sheet says non rewireable so guess they're rivetted together / glued.

This was the best price I could find for individually switched, surge protected and usb ports if it helps anybody. Bit more to pay at £11.99 >>> amazon.co.uk/Inn…ead

It also states there is no gold anywhere! A fact known by the entire planet Earth it is like the best stuff and waay better colour than boring B&W! Once again, I am disappointed by your choice of employ to conduct proper research.

Only fools buy gold plated mains extension leads, everyone knows the best conductors are diamonds and they look the most blingy alongside my Faberge eggs.

I hate to disagree old chap, diamonds are insulators and might be hard and blingy but gold (colour) still wins in conductivity stakes - so there!

Hmm I'll have to get my investigation team to look into my electronics team, clearly their diamond conductivity cable tests to improve estate powerline efficiency are some ellaborate scheme to extract more money from me, curse those nerdy cads.
