1.0 out of 5 stars No lightning protection!! Be careful what you buy it for., 10 Sept. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Masterplug SRGDU62PW USB Charging Surge Protected 2 m Extension Lead Power Block with 6 Sockets (DIY & Tools)
In short: Do NOT buy this product if you want your items to be protected from any surge caused by lightning.

I purchased this product to see what the surge protection competitors to Belkin etc had to offer, plus it was nice and compact.

It looks great, but then I went to register it (you have to do this to have form of protection at all by the looks of the packaging).

In the small print during registration it's advised that one of the clauses for your claim is:

Damage has not been caused by accident or lightning.

However, an unlimited warranty is proudly proclaimed on the box, and they will replace ANY connected equipment regardless of cost.

I can appreciate the accident part, but the reason why I bought such an expensive extension lead rather than a £5 one from the high street is to get the benefit of its protection. Well, you live and learn! My one is going back to Amazon and hopefully Masterplug won't be able to con anybody else with their tricksty packaging terms. Just thought I'd try to help others!
