The list of Extension boards /Cord + Buying guide is also given below, must check buying guide before selecting and buying. All those products you can easily buy from Amazon or Flipkart.

For keeping electronic devices like smartphones and laptops charged all the time, it becomes an essential product. It is not possible to charge devices by plugging into the wall electric board all the time. So, an electric extension board is required for ease of power use. So, you can purchase any extension board from the list as per your choice and requirement.

Buying Guide for Extension Board – Main things to Consider

  • Check Brand: only brands do not matter; quality matters. Buy the product of those companies that providing the best quality. Some local companies provide cheap quality so, buy after checking product details or after reading reviews and watching videos.
  • What is your use: Are you need a normal extension board or a simple heavy-duty extension board, or a heavy-duty extension board? First, decide and then purchase any extension board. Must check the max load capacity (in watt) of that particular extension board and check your appliance power consumption (in watt), and then select that extension board that has load capacity more than that of appliance total power consumption (in watt).
  • Check Wire Length: How much wire length you need. Buy as per your requirement. Mostly heavy-duty extension board comes with a short wire because heavy-duty cables are costly, and mostly standard extension board comes with long wire because regular cables are cheaper. If you buy an extension board that comes with a heavy-duty long wire, that may be costlier.
  • Check Wire: Mostly extension board comes with copper wire. so must check what is the diameter of copper in mm because load capacity depends on wire diameter. Mostly copper wire comes in these sizes – 0.75 mm, 1mm,1.5mm,2.5mm,4mm,6mm, etc. 0.75 mm wire can take load safely up to 200-300W. 1mm wire can take load safely up to 500-600W. 1.5 mm wire can take load safely up to 1000-1500W. 2.5 mm wire can take load safely up to 2000W and, 4 mm wire can take load safely up to 3000W.
  • Check –Sockets and charging ports: check how many sockets are in the extension board and how many USB ports are in the extension board if any extension board comes with USB charging ports also. You can choose as per your requirement.
  • Check which USB port delivers how much Ampere: If any extension board comes with USB ports, you must check which USB port is giving how much Ampere. How much Ampere (power) gives a single USB port or how much Ampere is giving while using all USB ports at the same time. If you are getting 2A on every individual USB port while using all USB ports at the same time, then it is very nice, but it is very rare. Mostly, one USB port max delivers near about 2A. When you use all USB ports at the same time, power will get distributed in all USB ports and give power as per the allocation of power output on every individual USB port. When you use all USB ports at the same time, generally, you will get near about 1 Ampere power per USB port. Well, if any single USB port delivers power near about 2A/3A while using single USB ports at the same time, then that is perfect. If a single USB port giving 2A output, it means it not a super-fast charging port, but it is the same as a standard USB adapter charging port.
  • Check switch: & Power indicator: by using the switch, you can ON/OFF the power, and by seeing the indicator, you can check; power is coming in the extension board or not. A switch is an essential thing, so buy only those which come with at least one switch & one indicator. If you are getting an individual switch & Power indicator for every socket, then it is also very good.
  • Check what Protection Type offer: Note: fuse/surge protector is a lifesaver for electronic devices). When overheating, voltage fluctuations, Overload, overvoltage take place, then the extension board automatically stops working. In this way, it protects your expensive computers, smartphones, home appliances, and other electronics. Surge is an unexpected, temporary, uncontrolled increase in current or voltage in an electrical circuit. A power surge can occur for several reasons, such as lightning strikes, faulty electrical wiring, short circuit, etc. (Note: surge protector is a lifesaver for electronic devices). Two types of protection – (surge protector or either Fuse protector) generally given in the extension board. The first is a surge protector, and the other is a Fuse protector. In surge protection, a fuse is not required. Still, it is not good as per me in terms of extension board only because once damaged, it may costlier for you, but in fuse protector technology, there is only need to change the fuse if it blows; fuse is easily available on the market at a low price, you can change it if it blows. So, as per me, the first priority is to choose those boards which come with fuse protection technology.
  • Check Build quality & Design.
  • Check Is there is Child Safety Shutter in the sockets? : The extension board that comes with the feature protects people from getting an electric shock if they accidentally put their hands in the socket. Households with kids must look for this feature to ensure safety.
  • Is that extension board made with Fireproof material or high temperature-resistant material: – To ensure your safety, must buy that extension board that is made with Fireproof material or high temperature-resistant material. If you choose these types of extension boards, there is very little chance of catching fire on any surge/Short circuit.
  • Check – that is Value for Money extension board or not.

Conclusion: By using this information, you can get a better pick from the below-selected list or from anywhere. You can purchase any from the below list as per your choice and requirement.

My Personal Advice

My Experience: I am using this extension board (from 2020) – Everything is good, USB charging is also good, 3 pin socket is also good, the switch is also good, only the 2-pin socket has no use for me only, that is loose, any plug does not fit tightly, they came out, rest everything is very Nice (outstanding). It is also perfect for travelling, I personally also use it in travelling. I personally using this extension board from 1 year, no problem came out.

Definitely Buy it, if you need a small extension board for traveling and for normal purpose.

Frequently Asked Questions About Extension Boards

1.Difference between the Fuse protector and surge protector?

A Surge protector is a device in which the circuit breaks when voltage spikes (passing above that particular rated current) or Power surges happen. But in Fuse technology, you have to replace the fuse if it blows.

2.What is Surge?

Surge is an unexpected, temporary, uncontrolled increase in current or voltage in an electrical circuit. A power surge can occur for several reasons, such as lightning strikes, faulty electrical wiring, short circuit, etc. (Note: surge protector is a lifesaver for electronic devices)

3. What is Overload protection?

An electrical overload is a condition where too much current passes through an electric wire than a rated current (passing above that particular rated current). When overload occurs, wires heat and can melt, with the risk of starting a fire. For example, suppose you are using 5 /5 sockets of an extension board. And if the current passing through the wire of that extension board (from plug to extension board) is above that particular rated current (above max load of extension board), then wires heat and can melt, with the risk of starting a fire in the extension board.

So, we take the use of overload protection which cuts the circuit on overload and saves that device from damage. For more information, click here to watch the video.

4.For heavy appliances like AC, refrigerator, Induction cooktop, etc., which type of extension board is used???

Simply choose those extension boards which safely take load up to 3000 -4000W.

5.What is the ideal cord length for extension board?

Most of the boards come with 2 meters of cord, it is better to go for the cord length of at least two meters. You can also go for a longer wire as per your requirement.

6.Better to go for how many sockets?

It is totally up to your use, as per me, 3 socket is enough minimum and 5-7, if you have to run more appliances.

7. Is led light necessary in board?

Yes, it is advisable to go for the board that comes with at least 1 power indicator that will indicate the power supply.

8.Can I use high power appliances like an iron box and water heater on 1.5mm copper wire extension board?

Yes.
