Hello all, I'm very new to this site and like to know if a 4 way Mains Power Extension will be fine pluged into a 10 way Surge or plug a 4 way Surge into a 10 way Surge? The thing is my two way wall socket as got two 10 way Surges on both off the left right socket parts. Both Surges are all filled up with my TV, Computer, Monitor, Game consoles and so on! And i don't have any more sockets to add 3 more game consoles what are a Gamecube, Wii U, PS3 super slim. So i like to know if pluging a 4 way Mains Power Extension or a 4 way Surge into a 10 way Surge will be fine or over doing it? It's not like i will be running all off the consoles at the sametime but i don't know if this is fine or not. I'm from the UK if that helps Thnak you :)

If you’re asking if you can plug one power strip into another, it’s generally frowned upon. But as long as you don’t have everything on at the same time you should be okay. At least from a electrical-loading perspective – can’t comment on the surge-protection aspect.

Just don't plug the surge protector into itself... Yes, that is a joke we Americans are familiar with. Common joke about idiots who buy computers and wonder why there is no power... "Well, the instructions said to plug the surge protector in..."
