Sorry mate don't Know

I called the Lancaster and Preston stores and they don't have it in....and are not aware of it. Is this national at some point?
Might be a silly question, but.... is this surge protected?

I didn't see anything on the packaging about surge protection. so not sure.
None in Cumbernauld
Items in Home Bargains depend on store size and categories instore... Chances are if its not been seen in 3/4 stores but has been bought in Alfreton that this is a line stocked by the bigger ones(superstores)
If you look on the label on the bottom left if it says reg it's will be regular stock and in most stores if it says one its a one off so may not be in all stores
Got 3 at Auldhouse Retail Park. For some reason they weren't with the electricals but beside the Xmas decorations. Not too many left.

Probably not as the packaging didn't say anything, which in the end is why I never got one. The USB is also 2.1amp spread across both ports as I seem to remember the back saying 2x1amp.

I think we can be fairly sure: if it was surge protected, it would say "surge protected". They don't tend to keep quiet about that sort of thing - not that many of them are actually that much use; they just tend to lull people into a false sense of security: protection tends to be hit and miss, and unless you get one with some kind of visual indicator you also have no way of knowing whether they even have any protection left in them.

And the number of people who think they will protect their equipment from a lightning strike beggars belief...
You've got to be kidding me, that USB power supply is going to be left switched on all the time, take this thing apart and you'll probably see a house fire waiting to happen.
Please don't buy this and leave it under a desk and forget about it, make sure it gets turned off at night (or ideally whenever you leave the room...)
Just bought one at local home bargains (Upper Boat, Pontypridd) and have run a few quick tests using Ampere app on Android. Getting 1.4 - 1.5A on single USB and approx 1A + 1.2A on 2 USB with decent leads.

​i like how the 's' is lower case, though. obviously know how to turn the caps lock off....
Plenty in Home Bargains Harwich when I was there yesterday.
Some in Holderness ,Hull this afternoon.
They had some in Portishead store, but they are not with the electrical goods but actually with the xmas lights etc.
Good product with cheap price.
On Sunday had them in Belle Vale.
