6 plug adaptor UK plug £3.99 with on/off switch @ Lidl

Found 4th Feb 2013
Been waiting for a cheap 6 plug adaptor and then mum comes home with one for me! Surprised at the price as I keep seeing them on here for £6 + and they go hot so maybe this will help someone. Not sure about how long they'll be in stock but Lidl usually keep an item for a week or so

Quidco!

One at Argos is better as it has individual switches and surge protection for £2 more , don't see the point of 1 switch

Don't see the point of any switches, anything I've got connected to extensions sockets need to be on. Nothing here has surge ptotection,

If you owned a Raspberry Pi, you'd probably change your tune... The Argos one is ideal for situations like that
Don't know what surge protection is. Is it really needed? Everything has a fuse which should prevent problems itself. I've never had issues

Of all the things to try and save a couple of quid on, this should be way, way down the list. In fact it shouldn't even be on the list.

Fair enough to bring out of the cupboard when you need additional plugs as a one-off.

But for sitting under or behind furniture with always-on kit plugged in? Get one with surge protection.

And arf at the unfortunate "...and they go hot" excerpt in the OP.

Good value, but when they're al this cheap, I'd go for the individually switched one too, unless Lidl is nearer than your local Argos
Argos would be great, if they had stock
Nationally there is the odd one or two at Argos. No chance of me travelling 135 miles to my nearest Argos with just 1 (according to istock check)
Can you plug a 6 plug adaptor into another 6 plug adaptor?

How the hell are some of you lot still alive?
These Lidl ones are superb quality, nice thick cable too.
I don't really get the problem with these. I've never had an extension cable cause me trouble
