DealExtreme: Line Filter with 5 universal outlets and switches Individual and Universal Plug Adapter w / U.S. standard.

Hello everybody, I speak today of two more products DealExtreme, at Line Filter with 5 made universal and individual switches (5-Outlet Electric AC Power Bar Strip Splitter with Switch (250In)) and an Universal Plug Adapter w / North American padrão (Universal US Travel Power Adapter Plug). This needed a power strip (Also known as power strip) to link computer equipments alguns, all sources with the U.S. standard (two pins plans), that has always been the most common in computer equipment in Brazil.

It turns out that the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT) decided to standardize plugs in Brazil and completely ignored all the plugs that were already used in Brazil, creating a pattern incompatible with virtually all. I've bitched enough that decision here, and keep saying something that is not understood, because this decision only served to warm enough market adapters, which must be approved by INMETRO and cost £ absurd 6,00 a R$ 7,00 each in some of the best computer stores.

Thanks to this, buy a power strip in Brazil has become an extremely complicated task, It is no longer allowed to manufacture filters made compatible with the standards of what we have already taken, all filters must be manufactured with standard ABNT that made us swallow the force. In Brazil there are only two alternatives: find a store with old stock of line filters (increasingly difficult), or buy a power strip in standard ABNT, along with half a dozen adapters, one for each outlet of the filter and the other to turn the filter itself in the socket on the UPS or surge. With filters costing in the range of U.S. $ 25,00 and adapters costing £ 6,00 each one, we reached a total of approximately U.S. $ 60,00, almost triple what you would pay before ABNT ruin everything. And pior, a fortune it takes for a solution filled adapters all gambiarrenta.

There must be a third alternative, we can not be held hostage by crazy ideas of an association that defends the interests of who knows whom (the manufacturers may adapters?). And that's when I remembered a product I had ever seen in DealExtreme, that is Line Filter with 5 made universal and individual switches (5-Outlet Electric AC Power Bar Strip Splitter with Switch (250In)), also versions which has 3 taken or 4 taken for those who may prefer.

This Line Filter with 5 made universal and individual switches has universal outlets that accept various types of plugs without adapter, including plugs of U.S. standard and European standard that are most common here. Another advantage is that the outlets are well spaced, in other words, those sources which tend to block the huge two neighboring sockets on the filters are not common problem. Each outlet has a switch individual, so that you can turn on or off each outlet individually without complications. Want to disconnect and reconnect that switch router that has? No more taking the outlet or remove the power plug, simply disconnect and reconnect the switch individual. Furthermore it is safer to leave off the jacks that are not being used, avoiding something there and fall short circuit. Each outlet also has a single LED that indicates whether it is enabled or not.

The Line Filter with 5 made universal and individual switches has a fairly thick wire, and supports up to 10A and 250V, providing an output of 2000W by. There is a resettable fuse on the side. The only drawback is that this plug Line Filter is the standard Australian, which is somewhat unusual in Brazilian pre-made imposition of ABNT. To solve this using an Universal Plug Adapter w / North American padrão (Universal US Travel Power Adapter Plug), that converts the jack for the standard U.S., what is present in the output of my UPS. This adapter also supports 10A and 250V.

As I said at the beginning, the cost of the solution adopted by ABNT would be about $ 60,00. This solution Line Filter with 5 made universal + Universal Plug Adapter w / North American padrão have cost less than £ 30,00, and yet offers the advantages of individual outlets with individual switches and well spaced, something never seen in national filters.

As I had DX Points to acquire sufficient Line Filter with 5 made universal, used resolved to the. I have mentioned on other occasions to rescue products with DX Points you must have an application open, then just bought the Universal Plug Adapter w / North American padrão to have the application open a ticket and sent it to include the Line Filter with 5 made universal com os DX points, and this was done.

The request was made in 08/08/2010 and shipped the day following. Both the product you paid for (Universal Plug Adapter) as what rescued with DX Points (Line Filter with 5 made universal) costing less than $15 USD (U.S. dollars two), but the sum of both would give a value slightly larger, and thus DealExtreme made with the shipping record (rastreamento number). The Hong Kong Post indicates that the package went to Brazil in 14/08. The Post Office indicate that the packet was received in Brazil 20/08 and on day 24/08 he was given, always tributos. Delivery in two weeks is excellent, I wish it were always so. The description of the package contents DealExtreme came as “TRAVELLING NEEDS – 34G – 1.38” and “PLUGS / ADAPTEORS – 504G – 11.00”, for a total of $12,38 HKD (Hong Kong dollars).

You can connect directly taken from the new standard in-line filter? There seems to be, the hole in the middle (Earth) seems to be a bit away from the other 2…

You can turn it perfectly into 110V outlets, once it has voltage 250V?
Desculpe to ignorance, but because I do not understand ANYTHING electricity! 🙂
