Great item, surge protection for a fantastic price!
on 19 March 2012
I recently bought two of these for my home recording studio, looking to replace the other ones I had which did not have surge protection (and unfortunately broke my drum machine when I did get a power surge!). These are fantastic for the price they just work.
There are lights that indicate different things on them - the amber light shows when electric is flowing to the sockets (i.e. power on) and the green light indicates that the surge protection is working.
If, for whatever reason, you get a power surge, the writing on the packaging claims that a maximum surge will stop the extension lead from working and will need to be replaced - this is the only negative thing I can think of but considering its such a good price one can hardly complain!
Some people have claimed that theirs have arrived with one or two sockets not working... mine are all fine they must just have been unlucky.
One small other note - if the power supply for an item is within the plug itself (resulting in the plug being very bulky and large), then it may cause problems when you want to plug something in next to it (they may not be able to fit in). Again another minor flaw in an otherwise brilliant product.
A great buy, highly recommended!
