Great find. Better than stringing cheaper 4-gang extensions together.

i bought one of these last it it was posted on here. nice piece of kit. buttons are nice and sturdy too.

Good deal especially as it comes with free delivery from CPC.:)

wish they would do longer cable as you cant very well hide these but great price for this

It's easy enough to swap it, just buy 5m of flex from an electrical shop and Bob's your uncle.

Will come in handy when the boiler breaks down in winter and the kids want a bath.

Anybody know of some cheap kettles?

Thanks OP

You can pay £13.78 for the exact same product if it makes you feel safer.

Look at top right on linked page.

That's right yes, because there's no regulation of British Standards in place to ensure the quality and safety of electrical items in this country is there? Perhaps the government ought to set one up. Wonder why it's never been thought of before?

Ordered, great deal

Are these the guys who send 6 inch thick catalogues the moment you buy anything off them?

Naa, you can opt in to receive their brochures if you want though. But they're on the website anyway.

I bought 2 of these last time and they are great quality and I've had no issues up till now.

Anyone know whether these have wall mounting holes on the back?

Thanks

Good price, looks same as the one I paid £11 for on ebay.

Well said! I just wish that there was a basic literacy test before people would be allowed to breed, vote, or use forums.

Ordered, thanks.

What is a surge, and what happens if one... happens?

Are these safe to leave on 24 hrs? I usualy switch all my extension off at the wall incase of a fire while im out.

Same here, I bought when last posted too. Great piece of kit from a reputable retailer.

[quote=ThisName]What is a surge, and what happens if one... happens?

Oh dear!
A surge is .... "A sudden powerful forward or upward movement, especially by a crowd or by a natural force such as the tide"

sometimes lights will go bright and dim or flick off then back on then everything blows up... boooooom!!!
So Ive now converted my house to run on gas and candles and have abandoned all electrical items its much safer.

I didn't realise HUKD was such a massive breading ground for fascists and pedants. Well done for having an education, I salute you.

I've got two of the 10 gang and one 8 gang and they work perfectly. Lights are pretty bright though but you can cover them with stickers or black tape if it's gonna be a problem
