Customer Review

Reviewed in Australia on 14 January 2021
Was annoyed by the blue LED on the switch and decided to replace it with a red one so I opened it. While I was opening it, I was curious why it was using special anti-tampering screws (triangle screw driver needed) but yeah I do have the required screw driver. After opened it, I was completely amazed by the quality of it. The cable was simply fixed in position in the cable hole by some spikes and thus the cable can easily be pulled out with fairly low force. Most worrying parts were the contacts. Before this one, it doesn't matter how cheap the power boards were, they all tried to make a surface contact by putting two pieces of copper spring blades on the two larges surface on each of the plug poles. This one was done in a genius way that for each pole there was only one copper blade and a narrow gap was cut in the middle and the plug pole will go into the gap orthogonally, which in turn making the contact to be thread-contact if not point contact. I probably would have started a fire if I put RATED 10A load on it. Look at the main circuit board, lots of empty soldering points, I guess everyone knows what does that mean. Irony enough, the 10A circuit breaker seems to be a legit one and there was even a diode for the red LED on the other end.
