I need a 10m cable to be able to hook up a wireless router and a dect phone
to the power supply - problem I've got at the moment, is that phone socket
is nowhere near an electricity socket. The option of running an extension
cable from the phone socket to a electric socket is not available.
For whatever reason, I seem to suffer from a lot of power surges and spikes
which in the past means I'm constantly changing light blubs, and I've had
problems of the transformer in my TV going pop when I turned the oven off
(even though its on a seperate circuit) and two PC PSUs going after not
particularly heavy or long use. These problems have not occured since
attached power surge protectors on almost everything and I've changed all my
light bulbs to low energy which don't rely on a fillament so less likely to
I would like to find a power surge device with a 10m cable but they just
don't seem available - only ones I've seen a big and bulky reels. Have
thought about simply buying a 2m cabled one and changing the cable to 10m,
but looking at the back of most of them, they appear impossible to be able
to get into, which is hardly surprising given the potential risk.
I've been looking at the power surge blocks (see link below) and wonder if I
can happily run a normal 10m extension cable off that. I appreciate that
the individual items on the extension cable won't be protected between each
other, but assume that the extension cable will be protected from potential
surges or spike that may occur from elsewhere on the wiring in my house
because of the block.
Anybody see any potential problem with that?
