Power boards and leads are fundamental tools that you should own. You do not have to spend much on a basic power board, but it always pays to go for trusted names, such as Ultracharge.
When selecting a power board, choose one with overload protection, which is a mandatory feature. However, overload protection should also come with outlet protection. This way, if anything drops into the outlet, there is a lower risk of running into any problems.
Many power boards today have a general switch. When you plug it in, all the outlets are “live.” It may be better to go for a power board with switches for each outlet. This way, you only need to turn on the outlet that you need to use.
As for extension cords or leads, length, durability, and safety should be the criteria to follow when selecting the product.
