USB + Power Socket extension lead query

Found 3rd Jan
Wondering if anyone knows of any extension leads that has several plug sockets on as well as a number of USB sockets for charging. I've seen the MasterPlug ones but they're not powerful to charge say an iPad and iPhone at the same time. I honestly don't seem to see one that looks nice and does a decent job.

I have a Xiaomi one that's amazing it will charge all sorts at once but obviously doesn't have UK sockets on it and I don't really have any use for it anymore as I've bought mostly UK-plug products now.

Buy adaptor for type of plug you have on current extension or cut off current plug and fit standard UK plug, job done.

It doesn't take UK plugs in the sockets, essentially everything but which is annoying

Probably the limiting factor here will be the manufacturer being economical with the USB spec. Respected supplier CPC will shift you 4-way extensions with USB (example 2m 4-way 2xUSB £8.90 delivered) but the USB spec PER PORT is unclear at a stated "USB ports rated at 2.4A, 5V". Compare to Amazon-fulfilled items that quote individual USB current per port that will more than meet your dual i-tat requirement amazon.co.uk/dp/…KC/ or amazon.co.uk/dp/…WK/ and others.

Not best practice to use original / adapters as no earth continuity.
