The Duronic surge tower extension lead will help you cut the clutter under your desk. Our customers range from home users and corporate companies, everyone looking for the same simple solution of tidying the computer setup.
Our range of towers have all had engineering done here in the UK to make sure they all meet the strict guidelines we have in the UK to make sure they are safe to use and they actually do the job. <br />
This model is engineered to tell you when it's surge protected and when it's not. Not all surge products have 2 neon lights. One for power indicator and one specifically for surge. The surge neon is assurance to the user that it is protecting your appliances and has not failed. In simple English, it means the surge function is working. A product without this function will never be able to tell the user the surge function is working or not. <br />

ST8B and ST8W: 8 Sockets
ST10B and ST10W: 10 Sockets

2m distance between the tower and the cable plug. <br />

Not only does it protect your electricals, the 10-way Tower tidies up the wiring mess that a typical 4-way creates.
I totally recommend this to anyone reading this review and assure you that you wont be disappointed with the product or the price.
OK so this plug extension unit comes packaged in a cardboard box and contains a very small instruction leaflet, which amongst other things usefully reminds us not to immerse it in water (I noticed this as nowhere on the amazon website description does it clearly state that this cannot be used in water - phew saved me some bath time shenanigans).
I am not an electrician and not even an electrical expert so take anything written here with that in mind.
At the bottom of the instruction leaflet it states that total wattage for all sockets must not exceed 3000W… I have little idea what that means exactly - apart from don’t plug loads of power hungry stuff into it or you may burn your house down or break things. Having read other reviews I think it’s a little unfair to complain when this device, designed to run of a single wall socket, fails to power your whole house, electric heater and kettle etc… I plan to use it for my lounge electrical entertainment (TV, DVD player, Satellite TV unit, wifi router etc…). I probably wont use anywhere near all 10 sockets.
The product itself feels rather light and is a little thicker than expected (see my photos), although in retrospect if it has to fit plugs in either side (with their 2cm prongs) therefore it should be no surprise that its 5cm thick.
It looks fine and the lights (power and surge protector) are at the bottom, important if you want to hide it behind a unit as lights at the top might be more easily seen. I also opted for the white one – as unless it’s a display piece in a modern room, or it’s for your friend the Goth who has black walls, white blends into the background a little better.
All in all it works and seems good quality, furthermore its relatively in expensive – I’ll keep you posted as our relationship develops.
In the unlikely event that the green light
goes out it means that the special internal
Thermal Fusing has performed its task and
the surge protection is no longer operational.
The unit must therefore be replaced."
In other words, if you're unlucky enough to have an electrical surge and the protector does its job, you then have a doorstop and not a surge protector. I know this is not an expensive product, but there is nothing in the product description that tells you it's a one time only surge protector. I think I might send it back and look for a surge protector that would work more than once, like a Belkin which guarantees its products for life. Might be a bit more expensive, but it would wind up costing the same if you did have a surge and had to keep replacing the protector.
However, a while back someone mentioned that the protection is a single time surge protector, this wasn't something i noticed nor do i care about too much, its a nice feature and if it works, albeit only once, it still protected my attached devices - which if there are 10 connect could quite easily mount up in value. I would much rather pay £15 again for another socket than £1000 in electrical damages.
If you are unlucky enough to have a lot of surges or spikes - then perhaps you would be better investing in a UPS, a battery backup system. I would be interested to know though how many spikes and surges you would normally assume to get - I don't believe i have ever had one where i live.
My only real gripe, and it is not specific to this unit, but all electrical gang leads is that the sockets are always close together, which is great for standard plugs, but with so many devices having transformers on the plugs - Switches, Modems, Routers and these such devices, they still take up almost 2 sockets of space per plug, which gets annoying and limits some plugs to less - without really squeezing them in next to each other.
