Smj Black 13amp 1 Gang Rubber Ext Socket by SMJ
Ever since I was a youngster I've been making my own cables up for one reason or another. In that time the quality of the parts gets worse through time... I guess that's just the age we live in. I've always preferred over engineered parts... It was always good for reusing and recycling. I was expecting this unit to be rubberised due to its black chassis but its not and the plugs that fit into it are a bit on the loose side. That said, it still does the job without any issue. Fortunately it's not going to be bashed about in its use with me so I'll be ok. If you intend to use it in a mobile environment you will need a rubberised heavier duty version.

Frankly its only a matter of time before the iPhone gets damaged just by leaving it on any smooth surface with an inclination of any sort (without a cover) This was one of those purchases where you hoped it lived up to your expectations...

When i received it I was truly impressed with how good it really was. Its not as bulky as i thought it would but is very sturdy and it feels really secure in your hand. With iPhone covers you need silicone to get the unit in and out of easily. This does that but has the extra polycarbonate cover which covers the majority of the… Read more
