Is it just me or is this design stupid? Why not rotate the sockets 90 degrees so the tail of one plug doesn't hinder plugging something else in?
Good price though as these are usually £30-35

Yup BD, bad design.

Try this one, only £31.99 with additional 20%

I looked at that one originally and looks better but I wanted the cheapest, it's also only available in one store.

Funnily enough when I just collected mine they gave me that one by mistake even though it said they had no stock! No complaints.

I think its designed to hang, so if the plugs were 90 degrees rotated and it was hanging, any water would probably capillary along the cable towards the socket, however with this design gravity will win!

Still, looks like a decent price! might get this to power garden lights when it comes to party time!

Thanks. Wanted a 'proper' one of these for a while.

Wanted the one in post 3 but no stock near me, one in the op is fine though.

The design could be based on a mainland European unit, where the plug tail runs from the top of the plug and not from the side. Maybe the design wasn't properly adapted for the UK market.

Design is good... Most effective way to stop water ingress.

It doesn't say the sockets are IP rated so they shouldn't be going anywhere near water

Not sure why people keep mentioning water..isnt it the other end (commando plug end) that should be anywhere near water.

still a good deal though these are usually nearer £40

These are generally priced between £35 and £40 so this is a bargain, and it includes a storage bag which is often extra.

Should go Hot!

That's what I thought. Socket end should be in the tent?

yes lead should be long enough so sockets are inside the tent.

Does anyone know what the trip current of the MCB is please?

Edit: it appears to be 10A. I was hoping it would handle 16A. Fine for most purposes but not mine.
