LocalFound 28th Dec 2017
Homebase is discounting the "6 Outlet Master/Slave Extension Lead". I picked up three earlier and there appeared to be lots on stock.
Just to note this is a ‘Smart’ extension lead that when the ‘Master’ socket drawing power the slave sockets automatically switches on.

There is a 15% off that may also work.

A ‘Smart’ extension lead that detects when the power in the ‘Master’ socket is On/Off and automatically switches the four slave sockets into the same state. This saves energy by reducing standby energy consumption of the appliances in the ‘Slave’ sockets to zero when the ‘Master’ is not in use.

They had these 6-gang 'smart' extensions instore but with 2 USB slots as well (looks like an item not stocked online).

Bought one of these - has annoying high pitch whining when plugged in. Going straight back.

Just got home with 3 of these and they all have this annoying, pretty unbearable, buzzing noise, which gets even worse with anything plugged in to them. They'll all be going back tomorrow.

Horrible, isn't it? Thanks for confirming. Might be part of the reason this brand is getting so heavily discounted, or discontinued.
