Bought something similar a while back and was disappointed because it struggled with oversized plugs/adaptors that come with today's equipment. The taller plugs would block access to the sockets on the opposite side almost turning it into a 4 gang extension. Great for standard plugs and a good deal!

Great I've always wanted a 3 way


Surge protected? I've mentioned in the description you can get similar things from Poundland.

That was a good price indeed. Now £9.99, I think the 5 ways BenRoss is also £9.99 at TJ Hughes but did not look, I needed 3 ways, the space is really awkward where I need it.

Ta Sam. Heat.


Cold. Got it 1p cheaper a couple of weeks ago! Heat really (y) I think the 10 socket was posted back then but I opted for this and it's been fine - no surges so can't test that but it's tidied things up a bit and replaced two other extension leads.

Fuses for domestic plug tops come in 3/5/10/13 amps. I have never seen a 3 or 5 amp extension lead but plenty of 10 amp ones exist. Check out Argos or screwfix. I guess a 10 amp one is a little cheaper to make as it can use a smaller diameter cable but I am not a fan. I have personal experience of a cable reel getting warm and tripping the thermal protection device even though it was half unwound.


All plugs should now be fused at 13 amps or 3 amps. So there should be either a 13 amp fuse or a 3 amp in the plug connected to the flexible cable. I don't think I've ever seen an extension plug with a 3 amp fuse in it. If it had that would mean you could only draw about 700 watts of power from all the sockets before the fuse went 'bang' :) IMO it's very unlikely that the flexible cable could overheat if wound but apparently it has happened however the one here is very short (2 metres) so you haven't got much to wind round anything :) . You should read the manufacturer's specifications of course.


This is gangsta


Some extensions are less than 13amps. 13a = 3120w at 240v 10a = 2400w at 240v Power rating can also be reduced if the cable is wound to prevent overheating. Always read the manufacturers specifications.


3 KW as with any extension lead of any type however many sockets

re: child plug guards. I've seen these ubiquitous bits of plastic in every parents household, but I think there is some herd fear thing going on because whenever I point out the obvious, nothing changes. "They sell them in Mothercare, it must be the thing to do..." As a former idiot child, I can confirm that we will stick metal objects in these things regardless of shrouding (cheeky)


Looks pretty good quality so i did vote hot, and thanks :) Might be able to put surge protected in the title (but not 100% sure but seems to say it is)

Surge protected 4w 2m - £4 instore @ ASDA

Another spot in asda, a very good price for a surge protected plug, hope this helps someone
Get dealGet deal

I would be personally buying a surge protector that actually offers reimbursement if it causes your devices to spontaneously combust,.


Just to point out "Surge protected" usually refers to an semiconductor component (MOV) that has a finite life, when it eventually fails it'll either catch fire, or more commonly just stop working. If you think you need some level of protection, maybe do some research first


Tks will try my local


Are they that hard to find they had so many in Docklands I think it said switched on the packaging

LondonsRichestTramp: You're not supposed to plug things in while they are on. Turn off the switch, plug it in, then switch it on. No sparks no danger Yeah right, until you move the cord it just loves to sparkle because the materials inside are very thin and the case as cheap as possible.. (horror) I have a verrrrry old one it looks so so... i usually hide it but i trust it the most because i have taken it apart and it is evident that there was no expense spared back then..


It's NOT a fire hazard with regards to current draw because the 13A fuse in the plug makes it impossible for devices to draw more current then the CSA of the cable can safely carry. What IS a fire hazard though is electrical arching as fuses and even RCD/RCBO's can't protect from this, just make sure all plugs are fully and correctly inserted and all is cool. (This is why the fire brigade warn against using those multi block adaptors as the extra weight can cause plugs to partially pull out from sockets creating the perfect conditions for electrical arching!)


Can never have enough of these.


You're not supposed to plug things in while they are on. Turn off the switch, plug it in, then switch it on. No sparks no danger


Daisy chaining is perfectly safe. It just depends on what you plug into the further extension. Anything with low power draw is fine.

Get dealGet deal

Anyone got a link to a good one?


Great deal, just bought one with Ann extra 10% off card they sent me in the post last week :)


Because the reel has a few layers of cable, they all tangle up and jam when rolling it back. I was surprised myself when this happened but I have this model and now have about 10m of cable that is always unwound as it will not roll back that far. I wish I had bought one that had a better mechanism instead of this model.


How hard can it be to roll it back


It's one cable that you're feeding back on the reel? Honestly not trying to troll you on this, just (having had similar reel) am puzzled. Are we saying the reel isn't big enough for the cable?

That ones does offer surge protection. The description says "Protect Electronics from Dangerous Surges, Rated to withstand a power surge of up to 900 J, and complete, 3-line AC protection can safeguard your laptop, desktop, printer."

I see where you are coming from but it is stated on these that they are for office equipment use only. This should also cover most low current domestic electrical devices etc. Although electric heaters or other high current appliances shouldn't be plugged into these type of extension leads really, modern domestic consumer units and correctly fused mains devices/appliances should be able to cope with the rather unlikely event potentially dangerous scenario picture you may be painting for this lead.


How well it works when connected to a safe load is quite interesting - but how well would it respond if, say, an electric heater plugged into it developed a short between heater element and (metal) case? In theory, a huge fault current should flow into the protective conductor (earth wire). This should near-instantly blow the fuse in the plugtop, clearing the fault and making everything safe. I've seen extension leads where the earth wire wasn't connected to anything. Others where the thin bendy metal making a brushing contact with the mains plug earth pin made so bad a connection that it just went open circuit when a large fault current tried to flow - leaving the equipment live and users unprotected. That's the problem with cheap imports (I'm not saying that this lead necessarily falls into that category) - how they respond when a fault happens, not how they work when all is well.


Wilkos ones are re-branded master plug ones, even have the mp name marked on the back somewhere. Not sure about pricing currently, but worth a look.


I bought this the other week and it is working fine - one thing to note is the power light (and one around the USBs) are bright... i'd intended to use this in the bedroom for charging phone overnight but had to rethink as it was lighting up the room. Could always put some masking tape over it i suppose.


Just the job for plugging everything in behind the tele. Great price

I'm more concerned about spikes on the electrical distribution system as I don't have phone lines near me (my neighbour is all over optical fibre).


These units only absorb energy spikes arriving over the electrical distribution system. Unless you have overhead lines running to your property, probably the least of your worries. Of far more concern is energy spikes arriving over a phone line, if you have an overhead phone line going to your property. Whilst the master socket will absorb spikes between the lines, thus protecting an isolated passive phone, it doesn't absorb spikes relative to ground. Those will go straight to anything that does have an earth (protective conductor) connection. Which could typically be a computer. Masterplug will not pay a penny towards that damage - as it won't have arrived via the mains. So, you need something, typically a mains adapter, that comes with phone line protection. A phone in and phone out. That will dump or absorb any spikes relative to ground.


I feel like my post is going cold but you can compare between brands only if they have the same specs. I'm no electrician, but for whoever buys cheaper alternatives (and therefore votes cold), please check the datasheet (if even it exists) and be careful!


Don't take me wrong, I like CPC but I still believe the Masterplug extensions leads are better than others. It says surge protected but it doesn't state how exactly. Another difference: Maximum surge current: 4,500A - The Masterplug is 13,500 Amps. The one here has a thermal cut as well. I don't normally care about having insurance either, but it's a good thing they trust the stuff they sell ;)


Massive amazon fan (Prime, 1000+ orders etc) but imo CPC Farnell are the go to people for these sort of products. I got 2 of these delivered for less than 50p more than this one costs.... and that's if you have prime.. https://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/2816sp/extension-lead-6g-surgeswitched/dp/PL10495 Edit: great minds! :D

Plus collecting locally also means it's easier to return if there are problems, and with christmas coming up, even prime doesn't necessarily mean next day delivery. I've had that problem a couple of times over teh years, so I rarely use prime nowadays.
