6 way Belkin Surge Protector with phone and aerial outputs - £7 instore @ Homebase

16
Found 8th May 2012
Went into Homebase Loughborough yesterday, and they have a stack of these. Original around £25.00, then reduced to £14.97.

They have a switch on the plug "base" itself, input/outputs for tv aerial and phoneline also. The bottom 2 sockets also swivel 90 degress to accomodate larger plugs. Also come with £100,000 warranty for any damage caused if surge protection fails.

They now have a sticker on saying £7.00 - "reason-Discontinued Item" - (next to this reduced priced stack, was a stack of full priced boxes with the same product in, but the new version - from what i can tell, they are EXACTLY the same socket wise, but the new ones DO NOT have the tv aerial input/output. So the new ones are full price and less features)

They had these, 6 way ones for £7.00

and 8 way ones for £10.00.

I spoke to the lady on the till, and she said they have been selling well and the deal is accross all stores.

Good deal for a 6-way even on its own, but with the surge protection it's a bit of a steal. Heat added.
Hot from me Just hope the local has some in stock!
will nip up to my local later for a look, hopefully they have it
Sockets don't have independent switches?

no
Not having individual switches will mean the money you save will be wasted in the long run through eletricity wastige.

I have never met anyone who has encountered a surge.... Make you wonder what the odds are.

I think the odds are quite low, although a few weeks ago we had a bad lightning storm which fried my router - a Netgear DGND3700. All of a sudden there was this massive flash and the biggest bang i've ever heard, house shook, brothers told me the internet is out, went to check router - Dead. Luckily it was still under warranty and I got it replaced, but I didn't have it plugged into a surge protector. Nothing else in the house was damaged, so my guess is the surge came through the phone line.
good price although i prefer the switched ones for this price it has to be hot
I have seen similar ones with a couple of ethernet ports in it, what exactly is the point of that?

Not 100% sure, but they have ethernet in/out so maybe to extend it.

oh, ok. thanks for the info. Must be useful for some people then I suppose oO
The ethernet ports are there to surge protect your network from the router onwards. Belkin have a lifetime warranty and insurance on all their surge protectors (£35,000 for the cheapest to £unlimited for the top of the range surge protector) if your unfortunate enough like Necrotix to have a lighting /near strike (does not have to hit the line if it is near it will damage whatever equiplment you have connected to the phone line, 2 near strikes at my brothers house meant 2 new mini telephone sytems £250 a time !. Have used 2 belkin surge protectors like above to protect it now no damage over the laste 6 years fingers crossed. Also if they go wrong they will replace them for you. All you have to do if you do get hit and the surge protector fails to protect the connected equipment is fill out the claim form and send in the surge protector.
Looks identical to ones I got a couple of years ago from 7dayshop which have been good. The swivel plugs are very handy for things like routers which have large mains adapter plugs. No individual switches but I just use my one for items that are always left plugged in, Sky box, router, TV, PS3. Just switch off your TV at the front rather than leave it on standby if your worried about energy consumption.
None in Reading or Abingdon, and they don't stock any other Belkins either! Has any one else actually found any??
None in Southampton (Millbrook) too
