The best 3-pin multiplug I've ever used
28 May 2019
Purchased set of 2, twice:
1. Seller: GM MODULAR PVT LTD at ₹360
2. Seller: SantEnt at ₹399
Both of them have delivered on time with good packaging.
GM is a trustworthy brand in electrical products and it shows very well in this multiplug. It has a 3-pin socket in the centre and two 2-pin sockets at the top and bottom surfaces. The bottom socket is angulated so that the plug attached to it doesn't override any switches below it. The fit and finish are really good and the ergonomics appreciable. The sockets snugly fit all sorts of plugs: Indian or international, without being too tight or overly loose. The tiny red light indicator is given at the lower right corner, and it shines like a night light in the darkness (I like it, some people might not). One of the four units I have has fallen to the floor from 5-feet height and is working without any scratches or loose parts inside. I don't know how well the surge protection works as I haven't faced such a situation yet.
2 things: the ergonomics and the price.
The unit is a bit too big vertically, it overrides the top portion of any switches beneath it (see the attached image), so I have to attach it loosely to the wall socket in order to operate the switches beneath it.
And the price, I feel is a bit too high at ₹399. Paying ₹200 for each of these feels like cheating to me. ₹100-130 per piece would've been more value-for-money.
Overall, it's a really well-made sturdy product whose price is a bit on the higher side. Go for it when the price is low at about ₹360 for both.
