As above.

Bargain - worth ordering a couple at this price ( orders over £8 ex vat are delivered free )

If you can’t find anything else worth buying and want a couple of extensions add in 2 x fuses to get over the £8 min order...

What's the minimum cost to buy one OP? That should be in the title, …What's the minimum cost to buy one OP? That should be in the title, followed up with the explanation of how much you need to spend to get free delivery, as it's not possible to buy one of these on it's own for £4.73.


£8.93 ( if you click ‘get deal’ and add one to basket it’d tell you )
The deal is self explanatory really - hence the term ‘ see post ‘
I appreciate where you are coming from however buying a couple of these is a deal in itself when you consider your unlikely to buy one anywhere for near £8 let alone £4.73

Hope this helps.

Nice find OP, just ordered 3 for free delivery. Already had some of these a few years ago, very useful
What's the handling charge all about?
Very handy, thanks

Orders under £8 ex vat incur a handling charge hence you’ll need to get the order over £8

If your really struggling to find anything else but would buy a couple of these then here’s an item that will help you get over the £8 for free delivery...

So this will cost around 13 kwid for 2

Or as suggested add two of the fuses for 7p each (+VAT) to get free delivery.

£9.62 (inc VAT)for two

It is if you live local and collect from the store!

Nice these always come in handy and at that price I have got myself 3 to save on P&P as I needed some anyway so have some heat 🔥
Firstly, thanks for posting @PennyTrader. I'm shortly going to add this to the days 'Highlights'
Postage costs should always be included, hence why I included them in the thread title, but I take your point about buying 2 (or just taking your order over £8 to get free delivery). Anyway, fab find and much appreciated.
As a fire safety officer, I feel I should warn everyone not to overload these by plugging too many amps into one socket otherwise you’ll end up with a gang bang.

I’d be shocked if that ever happened to me

Great price but surge protectors don't work well with power line network extenders if you are using one around the house I've heard

Doesn't the fuse in the plug mean that regardless of what's plugged in, it couldn't draw any more than what the fuse is rated for without blowing the fuse?

Yes you are right - the only thing is that there might be a delay on when the fuse blows, which may give the flexes a chance to heat up and cause a fire.

How feasible is this scenario? I don't know, but I would err on the side of caution and comply with reasonable thinking. I.e. don't test the theory.
Given my last post - Ironically, I'm giving heat.

Just ordered 3 for my house - which I won't daisy-chain
Yet another product I didn't know I needed! Thanks HUKD, 3 ordered and on the way!

Absolutely, I've just seen people say these things are inherently dangerous because you can plug say 6 things into one socket, and their logic is that means 6x more power through it, which isn't really the case...
Nice find ...HOT
Thanks, ordered 4, just wish they were a little longer but no hassle to buy some flex from screwfix and extend them with that.
i had been wanting one to keep devices from standby unnecessarily and thereby to save power and hence save the planet - done deal today!
i was reluctant to buy from tesco when they had a promo for switch controlled ext. lead because i did not like the quality. hope this one is not bad
Sold out
Shocking the current deal has sold out.
No longer stocked!!!!
No stock
OOS

If the bus bars inside can handle 13A each to the common in coming from flex, then the fuse at the extension plug should blow, that's why there is a fuse to protect, these are be BS approved. In theory there should not be a problem, unless the appliance plug is dirty, in which case it would heat up the connection, this would be the same on a wall socket, but they are solid plastic, less risk of a fire.
Said 200 odd before i ordered, just got an email saying out of stock. Probably wont bother with that crowd again...

They’re not a bad crowd to be fair’ you’ll probably find the stock system wasn’t keeping up with the orders hence it’s been pulled.

Never mind’ consider it money saved
Paid now refund happening 😡
I ordered 2 plus some fuses for free delivery.

Had email to say the 6 gang is out of stock so we will send the other items.

Called to cancel entire order and they said it’s already been dispatched.
When questioned about free postage they said I have now been charged postage.

Shocking company to do this!

Really ? That’s shocking have you got a name and I’ll invite them to this thread!
Same here. They took payment and then cancelled my order. CPC used to be good but I would avoid them forever now
Hi all,
Sorry we had not noticed this sooner - at this time of year it can take a little time to notice back orders on a specific product until we have a significant volume of them.

As PennyTrader points out we do have a system that is not ideally suited to HUKD (especially the volumes it drives out of hours, to new accounts and in a short timeframe).
We are genuinely sorry to anyone who has placed an order we cannot support, we really do try to avoid this situation as it is poor for everyone..
As it has been a while since we have been badly caught out it seems a good point to explain why this happens.
We have a stock system that needs an order to be processed to allocate the stock, the system does this automatically for the majority of orders but for new accounts, orders that have issues or checks flagged against it we do need to manually push that order through - what that means is that we do not allocate stock for all the orders we have taken. It is really helpful for situations where a fraudster ordering 1000 of an item does not remove it from sale for our genuine customers but it is really poor for HUKD where we get a lot of new accounts ordering and a dis-proportionally high number of not-allocated stock vs. orders. We only see that we have a problem when we start our business day and start processing new accounts with back orders on.

We do not take any funds from anyone until an order is despatched, if we have cancelled an order the bank will drop that from your records as its only a pre-auth and we have not taken it.
If you have tacked on some smaller items to get over the handling threshold and they have gone out for you (it is really hard to stop the orders when that happens) we will not have charged any handling for the order.
If you did not really want the items ordered and would like to return them etc, please email social@cpc.co.uk and we can help you on there.

Again, sorry that this has happened.
Kind regards
The CPC Team.
