What you are looking for is an extension cord or a power strip. I will not suggest MX. There is a brand called Oxygen. It is one of the best power cords I have come across. It does not have have anything except a external fuse. Power conditioning has to be done before the power strip.
Please check the following link where I have a photo of this.
You live in Chennai, right? You should be able to get it in Ritchie Street or even Mercy Electronics.
Thanks for the heads-up on Oxygen power strip, I was very close to buying MX today, actually. Yeah, live in Chennai, actually will be good if there is all-in-one power strip plus surge protector in Oxygen, will check in Ritchie, and Mercy at Velachery is small (where I live), heard there is a big one at Thiruvanmiyur, any idea ?
...Monster surge protector for 8k. Is it worth it?
Hi Vinod and anm,
Vinod since u have only one 3 pin socket as ur mains why not make an extension block by buying say 3 5amp anchor roma or equivalent sockets, and the clip on strip and box, and some finolex or polycab 2.5 sq.mm. 3 core cable, and 3 pin plug. Any decent electrician will make it for u in a jiffy and will cost u about Rs 500/-. IMO better than most extension strips in the market. Of course u get no surge or spike protection but then i wonder how these so called surge protect power strips actually work and whether they really protect your equipment at all.
Anm 8K can get u a 2KVA ARGO (pioneers and one of the best) servo stabilizer with overload cut off(170 to 270V range) and spike protection. This will work. Problem is it wont look as cool as the monster product!
