Well that sparkie got it wrong! The old rules (1991) specified 8 or 15
for a 16A circuit if protected by a HRC fuse or circuit breaker,
depending on the number of circuits, and doubles only counted as one.

The 2001 rules don't have an arbitrary limit on the number of socket
outlets per circuit.

assuming you're not drawwing more current than allowed from the socket,
only organisational ones

4 4-way pwer boards get you 13 uasble sockets
one 6 way and one 8-way would get you there too.  :^)

or buy a 12 socket power board from DSE, they are long as.

the trick is to not draw too much from one power board socket, if you
have big power items like a large tv and high power amp,scatter them
over random boards. thats really the only concern, a small one, but one
none the less.

But a 4 pack of 4 ways is usually much cheaper. In fact I've even seen 4*4
way PB's for $5!
(It's simply amazing what stuff can be made for in China these days.)

Half that price at Bunnings!

Yeah, it is amazing what you can get stuff for these days.
Stuff like a $35 DVD player. I can barely even buy a connector at
Farnell for that! :->

4*4

As you noted later, I'm talking $1.25 each for 4.
But even $10 usually beats all alternatives for price.

So true, and most kits have become a joke these days.
