A very good quality item
23 October 2017
This is very well built but at the same time not heavy at all. I have a Cona 4+4 extension board which is also fairly good but this time I needed fewer sockets and shorter wire length to connect TV, settop box and have one more socket free. To be clear, I bought the Bull 3-socket one that comes with 1.5m wire (the Cona came with 5m long wire). The push button switches are what made me prefer this item instead of other brands like Cona, Anchor, GM, etc.
The sockets are very tight and we would need to apply some pressure to insert any plugs. Once the plugs go in completely, there would be no chance of them falling out even if held upside down. There's one indicator for the mains supply that lights whenever the mains is switched ON. Each socket gets its own indicator as well that lights up when we push the rocker switch down. When ON, this switch stays down and to switch OFF, we push it further that releases the switch back up - kind of like click pens. As the product images indicate, the sockets accept almost all types of plugs so there's no headache of buying pin adapters.
I want to hang this onto the wall so I needed keyhole slots at the back. This was missing in the Product Specs but I took a risk and bought it. Luckily there is but only on one side - the side the wire goes in. And it is not bidirectional so it can be used only to hang this thing horizontally (I uploaded a couple images for reference). The other side has a hang hole/clip that is visible in the product images - this can be used if you need to hang this vertically. For hanging it horizontally, we anyway need both but I would have preferred both at the back so that the screw heads are not visible.
Function-wise, there's not much to write about. It works well as expected and feels like it will last a good amount of time. Note that there is no surge or spike protection in this. And this is definitely a little pricier than say Cona or Anchor - I got the Cona 4+4 one with 5m wire for only ₹26 more than this. I am happy with both but if I have to pick only one, then I would go with Bull for its better build.
