In the 21st century, households have accumulated a lot of electrical hardware and devices. Not just general household ‘white goods’ but audio-visual kit and now multiple computers and smart phones. The average home doesn’t have enough places to plug them all into. That’s where extension sockets come in handy.
We love the design of the PowerCube – useful AND beautiful – it’s perfect for sitting atop a work desk to power your computer, printer, mobile phone, tablet etc.
If you’re going for the traditional, white extension sockets the Masterplug is a great choice. Especially if you’re like us and lots of hard-to-reach sockets behind furniture and appliances. It comes with a little remote control to save you having to stretch to reach behind the back of a bulky fridge freezer, washing machine or hi-fi system.
If you’re just after a ‘cheap & cheerful option’, you don’t get much more cheerful than these coloured ones. They’re available in pink, blue, purple and red.
