It works because I ordered mine and received within a week - very handy!

Thanks to Pinkmelonsmr2 !

nice find for 50p

Saw this in the paper but having just gone through looking at surge protection, I'd only use these cheap ones as quasi extension leads and not for high value electronics. I would not be putting my LCD, PC and stereo through it if you know what I mean but it would be ok with a hair drier etc.

Agreed. I just picked them up for general household use. At 50p, things can't be that bad...lol

So what would you recommend? I have stereo / PS3 / Freeview / HD TV currently sharing one of these without the individual switches I basically want one thats safe and has individual switches..

Hmm - I'd do the opposite. The problem with bad contacts on cheap extension leads is fire caused by high-current devices such as hairdryers. Maybe in the case of a hairdryer it's not so bad because you'd notice the thing bursting into flames, but devices with heaters left unattended I would worry much more about.

I've yet to see any evidence that "surge protection" is anything more than a complete marketing gimmick. I wouldn't worry about it.

I misread the title and thought it meant individually switched sockets - been and bought one and obviously they're not. Just a heads-up for anyone who misreads it like me :oops:

And just out of interest, the one I bought has an Argos product code (982/7796) on the back!

You can get individual switched sockets but not this one. Sorry if any confusion dude,

I think these will be hard to find, as these were part of an electricals clearance about a month ago. It included bulbs and light/power switches/ fuses and adapters. I bought one for £2 then which was 75% off.

Do you know of any cases of successful claims on such insurance?
