I know some people will already know this but I feel it's worth providing a word of warning about overloading sockets. These should never be used with high power drain devices. Some are only rated to 10amps. With 10 devices plugged in and turned on its possible to overload these and your wall socket.

Well said. Thanks.

What's an example of high power drain devices? Is there a golden rule when judging what to connect or not?

​Things like electric heaters, oil filled radiator, kettle, irons, hairdryers etc.
The size of the fuse can often give you an indication of the current that could be drawn by the device. It's all about the wattage of the device the higher the wattage the more power it will draw and therefore the higher the current.
Personally I wouldnt have 10 devices plugged in and in use at the same time. Even lower wattage devices may overload the socket if they are all drawing at the same time.
Try to spread the load over as many wall sockets as possible.
A 10 socket seems like a good idea but personally I wouldn't use one that has more than 6. I also have surge protection multi sockets that have individual switches so you can turn off the devices you are not using without having to unplug them.

I'm using mine for TV, AV Receiver etc. In which case it should be fine. Plus I switch off everything at the mains overnight. I have another one which I leave connected. I use that for the stuff I need on overnight, Sky Box (for overnight recording), cordless phone etc.

If you only have a a few AV things plugged in you will be fine. Because I have 5 AV devices plugged into the same multi socket in my living room I plug my AV amp which is the highest wattage device into the wall directly.

not this price in Nottingham b&m
