Flip British Plug – Flip Quad

Flip British Plug – Flip Quad
· ·

I backed the Flip British Plug on Kickstarter on 22nd November 2015. The project was funded on 18th December 2015 after raising a total of £28,115 out of their initial goal of £15,000 from 1,140 backers.

I chose the £14 reward level and shipping to Singapore cost another £5. So in total, I paid £19 (S$38).

Bought a packet of 3 PowerPac Plug Keys from Challenger at Funan for S$0.90 (after 20% member’s discount is S$0.72). This Plug Key will convert your 3-pin plug socket to support a 2-pin plug power cable.

Since Singapore was once part of the British, we follow the British BS 1363 standard.

Bought a pack of 2 Taiyo 3-Pin Plug Adapters from Challenger at Funan for S$14.90 (after 10% member’s discount is S$13.41). I like it because it has individual switch to control power to each of the 3 3-pin sockets.

I find it weird that some countries do not have the concept of switching off an individual switch on a power strip but rather leaving all the switches always on, if you look at Belkin Surge Protectors, there is no on/off switch available.
