    Got my table from v.Hive last saturday, will arrive tomorow late afternoon, so wondering... now my wiring is going to be a headache. I need a lot of extension points but there's none near my computer, what I'm doing is I'll pull 2 extension from my bed room using a seperator (or what you call that) to a single socket and use.

    Just wondering how safe is it?

    Cos now the case is going to be:

    - Speakers (2.1)
    - Dry Cabinet
    - LCD display (can run off serial/DVI power, but I'm plugging into a socket)
    - 350W PSU
    - Epson R210
    - Linksys Wireless Router
    - Scanner (spoilt but might replace)
    - 2 x spare sockets for Battery Chargers / Notebooks.


    That's 9 sockets in total. Might get a 5 port extension and plug those splitters for the other 4.

    Problem is, will it 'blow' ? I'm not engineering type, so I have no idea about power drainage and etc.

    Any kind advice?

    Grp yr "high power" sucking device like 350PSU on 1 socket will do.
    other things eg. dry cab.. can put 2 to 3 in 1 socket.

    The only high-powered is the 350W I guess.

    The ones that must be left on 24/7 are:

    - Printer
    - SCV modem (forgot about this impt thing)
    - Wireless Router
    - Dry Cabinet

    the rest can be switched off when not in use.

    Yo ESPN,
    Take a calculator and add up all the current rating for your electrical appliances and make sure they dun exceed 13A.
    Another way you can do is to tap from another source, check your circuit breaker for a spare point,MCB and divert some appliances there.... DO NOT CONNECT ALL AND PLUG INTO 1 POINT...confirm sure to burn yr fuse....

    best bet, take 2 points.... put computer system and low current appliances together. the other point use for the rest. You would not want yr PC to switch off before saving right?

    hope this helps....

    Get an approved electrician and have him setup another mains point near your computer?

    Actually, I've been doing that all along but now wondering if I should carry on doing it.

    Wall -> 2 extentions -> 1 extension extends another one.

    It's, unfortunately, standard practise..
    When you're expecting a delivery (NO! NOT PREGNANCY! DUH!), just rent a couple of DVD's & buy some chips...
    Have a bout of couchpotatotitis for a day and wait...

    Also, they do display their Sitoca products in exhibition in Suntec or Expo sometimes.
