IF you want one this looks a good price. Says free P&P but it is for Amazon prime I think, so if you are one of those unsufferable peole that are not on Prime you might have to pay.

Could be OK but the trouble is so many cheap nasty Chinese products like this on Amazon that it's sometimes hard to tell which are actually safe and reliable versus those that look safe but are likely go have unsafe sockets, unreliable USB chargers and unsafe illegal plugs. There are many hundreds of potentially disastrous and outright illegal to sell in the UK products on there. For power strips/extensions and such like I stick to branded products or source from another supplier as Amazon and Ebay has no standards or cares about such matters.

Decent cord length too - with a lot of items having “brick” plugs I wonder if you would have issues as the sockets look close together

Charger ports aren't to bad. Most new phones need more amps to charge at full speed tho

If you don't need 4 usb sockets, this one woth 2 usb sockets is £10.48 cpc.farnell.com/pro…407

Yeh, I voted hot as it's a good price but must admit I'm quite hesitant to buy. Think I'll fork out a bit more for something 'safer' - said with quotation marks as tbh they probably originate from the same factory just with different branding...

Haven't got a clue about this one but I have been aware of other multi plug extension leads which also include multi USB port charging of having some limitations beyond that of their rating. For me this one seems to have the mains plugs quite close to each other, and do not swivel, which might be an issue depending on what you are plugging in.

It does state that each USB port should be capable of up to 2.1A at 5v.

On a different brand we had I found that when using a Drok USB Electronic Load Tester (and others) I have found it suffered from voltage spikes and fluctuations the closer it got to its maximum rated Amp usage. When the second port was also being used the first port then gave voltage fluctuations with much lower Amp draw. It was beyond the 4.5v - 5.5v, which is supposed to be acceptable. Not sure how much would be considered ok in such variation before any damage could occur with what you are plugging in.

Up to now I had better consistency when using multi port type charging with either Anker or Ravpower products.

I tend to keep multiple mains plug extensions just for mains plugs.

A lot!


Think he's still got a nokia 3310 :-D

after buying "cube" extension I would never go back to this type. It's enough to plug into it anything of irregular size and between 2-5 ports are blocked

I don't give false information tho..... Sometimes you have to own up when your wrong or keep quiet about something you know nothing about
