Easly able to handle low power stuff like this.

An xbox for example is not even 1amp, you could plug in 13 of them and not hit the 13amp fuse limit.

If you are worried always check the power draw for each device. electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/gui…ts/

This looks like the box you're talking about:
screwfix.com/p/m…169
It has an interior width of 22cm

The extension cable is probably about 30cm wide (thought the description doesn't give dimensions)
So, no, probably not.

Thanks for the clarification, I’ve always wondered this.
Thanks op. Bought one.
Isn't using all that begging to burn down your house? Be careful. Follow fire service advice to avoid socket overloading. Think of the heat given off by plugs as well.
Great price, thanks Op
@Lionyone see my post below. It all depends on the power draw. You are right to watch out for it. However, if you are sensible more sockets doesn't mean burning anything.

Thanks for posting, we have added this to the Highlights section
Good deal this. Thanks
Be aware:

You can't plug power pack type plugs in without blocking the opposite socket.
For instance a Fire TV and Hue light hub take up 4 sockets.

It gets annoying!
Anything with a shorter cable? 2m seems a bit excessive..
Anyone aware of a 10 way switched for a decent price? I've looked before, but never found anything with individual switches.

It's actually physically impossible to burn down your house/start a fire even if you overload a socket like this!
This is the reason plugs have fuses in them, it prevents people from demanding more current then the cable and extension can safely carry.

The worse that will happen if you overload an extension buy plugging in and simultaneously using multiple high current devices is that the fuse will blow.

What is an actual fire risk is electrical arching where plugs are not correctly and fully inserted. This is why the fire brigade hate and discourage the use of them silly extension blocks/cubes. I fully agree with them, they should be banned tbh.
