Thanks
I'd been toying with the idea of this just last night, but reviews gave mixed feedback about the USB power rating. Good spot/post though. Shame my prime ran out. Heheh...
If anyone has a genuine experience of this particular item and can shed light on the USB charge rating, I'd be happy to hear!
Very interesting and useful. Nice to have an all in one solution when travelling. Should see the amount of electronics we take with us now, even for a short break. Recent one week trip: laptop, two phones, car GPS, two GPS watches, two headtorches, electric shaver, power bank, PS4 pad (only think I would have done without in retrospect).

All the leads and chargers and adapters for all that stuff was a nightmare. All carried on board too.

Have ordered a couple of sets, so can't personally comment. From reviews at various sites, its 2.4A shared over the two ports. So a full 2.4 if you use one port, less if you are using both. This is usually the way these type of Belkin products work.

Thanks, good price. Seen good reviews on popular tech YouTube channels

price now is £17.98
I think this one is a better buy (but not currently on offer)

Mainly because it has an extention cable, an actual 'off' switch and the USB chargers are higher power. Worth the extra in my opinion

I suppose that depends on if you need a 'travel' socket or a normal one. I would also trust a branded surge protector over one of those non brands, plus the Belkin one has a £25,000 protected equipment guarantee.
I like this one that is often on offer for around £12:

Nice find although it's not 2 X 2.4A.

​I don't doubt the added peace of mind a branded one gives, but that doesn't really make it more fit for purpose. I was more focused on the features than that particular example I used to make a point that there are more versatile options for not much more money (now for the same amount since the offer is expired).

Just the extension cable alone makes it better for travel and normal use in most circumstances. Personally, I think the lower specced USB chargers on the belkin are deal breakers as I'd end up just plugging in my device's stock charger anyway.

I do like the Belkin's connected equipment warranty you mentioned. I wasn't aware of that and curious to know how easy/difficult it would be to claim if things were to go wrong. I would normally use contents insurance, but not everyone has that.

But that's not a travel adapter?
Thanks OP, ordered
I've seen this on offer a few times, and it's kept me wondering; will it surge protect devices connected to a non-surge protected socket extension, if the extension is plugged in through this?

I bought a couple of 8 gang extension strips when they were posted on here last year for no more than a few quid from Homebase, but I haven't used them on account of the lack of surge protection, and all the tech I hook up to my current 6 gang surge strip.

I can't see why it wouldn't work, but maybe some of you HUKDers can pick a hole in that particular bodged setup.
Any pictures or video? Would be nice to know how it folds. I have a Mu System which is good for USB devices however on occasion I carry my full-size laptop and this could be handy.

Strangely can't find any pictures of it's backside.

It's the line 'Easy-to-fold plugs for ultimate portability when used On-The-Go or between Home/Office' that I'm interested in. Not sure there's anything folding about this product.

I think the socket pins fold in/out. I have an old (non Belkin) travel socket and it has folding pins, so might be similar.
Or get one of these:-

amazon.co.uk/gp/…1_7?qid=1455363972&sr=8-7π=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=powercube
Please note the PowerCube is NOT surge-protected, so it's not suitable if that is a must for you.
Ermmm one of the two star reviews on Amazon shows a photo of the back. It has only a UK three pin plug on the back. The "travel" element is the fact the three pins fold flat. If you want to use it abroad then you need to carry an appropriate adapter! This is also confirmed by some of the questions and answers on Amazon.
how do you get if for £12? I have prime but it is no showing at that price. thanks
It's now £16.34, can be seen on the right hand side in Amazon
