Rated 5 out of 5 by Well Made Switched Socket Couldn't fault this. Has all you need for a switched weatherproof socket. Nearly a quarter of the price of similar items, but looks like it could even be better. Even has a neon to show it's connected. Brilliant! 9 Jul 2016

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Mounting this box so that it is lay down on a horizontal surface rather than upright on a vertical surface will be fine as long as the box will not be sitting in deep standing water or opened while being rained upon, as either of these scenarios might lead to unexpected water intrusion.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Due to the lid and surrounding enclosure, which need to be present and closed together to maintain the IP rating in wet conditions, you will not be able to fit anything larger than a standard 13A UK plug into the socket.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The Storm weatherproof range, of which this socket is a part, is designed to be outdoors constantly and is IP rated with the lid closed whether there is a lead plugged in or not.
Therefore if your lighting (or other accessories) are suitable to be left outdoors permanently then they can stay plugged into this socket without any problems being caused.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Yes, it is perfectly acceptable to wire this double socket to a length of cable and use a Safety RCD Plug on the end to allow it to be plugged into an available mains socket.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The standard cabling used for a UK socket ring is 2.5mm square Twin & Earth, which is suitable for constant current draws up to 32A (7,680W) and should be protected by a suitable 32A breaker to prevent overloading.
