Masterplug 10 Socket Tower Extension Lead - 1m £9.99 (Half Price) from Argos

Found 26th Jul 2013
Seems like a decent deal for a 10 socket tower. Should be £19.99.
Gets really good reviews.

Guess it'd work well at the back of a tele or computer desk.

Product summary

•10 sockets with 1m extension cable.
•13 amps.
•Child resistant sockets.
•Integrated cable management system.
•Suitable for indoor use.

Edit: Just had a good thought. None of these sockets seem to face each other and are set at an angle. I've got this issue where all my chargers and lots of plugs are so big I'd have to leave an empty socket opposite using many extensions. So this has suddenly become even hotter for me that i oringinally thought.

There is a decent priced surge protected one here:

robertdyas.co.uk/P~1…oms which is £11.99 (Was £17.99) but delivery is £4.99 on orders under £40.

I'm looking for one with individual switches and surge protection any ideas?

Bought this one from Argos a few months ago when it was offer. Great piece of kit - so would probably go with it again over the Argos one.

There's a load of well price switch surge extensions on Amazon but it's proving hard to find in tower form.

Seems like a good choice. Pity it's not a tower but you can't win em all. Personally I like the extensions with individual switches. Just gives more flexibility.

Yeah a lot better with switches saves time from unplugging it every time and saves money by switches the ones you want on

I have a few of these, they seem quite robust...

That's a really good find. Only issue is that the sockets face each other.

I've got this issue where all my chargers and lots of plugs are so big I'd have to leave an empty socket opposite.

You should create a separate deal for that. £11.99 for this Masterplug is well cheap - it costs £29.99 at Argos!

Have been looking for a decent switched extender with USB for ever, they never seem to go down to a reasonable price though

Good deal but you can cheaper, 4 shockets for only 99p from any
pound shop

Another Argos ghost for me this week:
Sorry, this item is currently out of stock
to pick up at your 10 nearest stores

For 99p a shocket is probably what you'd get!!

Besides I'd need to buy two and a half of them and then need two and a half sockets at home to plug them into to equal the 10 sockets in this deal.

I think the guy meant a tower standing one although I'm sure he is thankful for your effort and someone else may find it useful too

As I was scrolling, at a glance, the product picture looked so rude oO

They are in Aldi as well, £10, in Coventry (walsgrave) anyway

just reserved it with a half price cable management tidy for £14.98 for the pair,heat added!.

OOS

Can't find a good deal for a surge-protected and switched extension tower anywhere, ideally with angled sockets. Also, anyone know a good solution for a common problem: spaghetti mania? I've bought those cable tidiers in the past. They're okay I suppose, not great.

this is sold out in NW London

I have one of these powering my many living room devices, never had any trouble with it and had it over a year, don't know what else to put that may help other people.

Thanks Op

Just picked one of these up from Middleton. One left

Sorry but nobody posted here seems to know Aldi had advertised last week that for its weekly Special Buys from 25th July they are selling a 10 sockets tower extension (2m cable) with Surge Protection as well. https://www.aldi.co.uk/en/specialbuys/thursday-specialbuys-25th-july/product-detail/ps/p/surge-protected-extension-lead/
Which may explain the price cut reported here as it is selling for £9.99!
The sockets are also angled. Bought one on Thursday. It's branded SMJ.

Are these safe enough to plug adapters and mobile phone chargers into?

Expired, good post but bare in mind 1M only so robert dyas one is much better at 2m and telecoms. etc
