Rated 4 out of 5 by Extension reel I found it to be a well made, light extension reel that unwound very easily. The rcd plugs into the mains and then I plug it into one of the four reel sockets to transport it. There is a cable guide consisting of two wires forming a loop that you slide the wire between but I found it was little help as any slack in the wire and it gets a mind of its own causing tangles. Gave it 4 stars as I will probably sort out tangle issue as I get used to it. Reliability unknown. 5 Mar 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Switched 4 Socket with RCD Bonus to have switch at point of work rather than back to source. Not the best at rewind but can be forgiven for compact size. Is it reliable - who knows at this early stage in the purchase? 24 Dec 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value Bought this because of the RCD permanently attached. Prevents the chance that when I forget the separate RCD I have I use my other extensions with no protection on them. 29 Oct 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by HIGHLY RECOMMENDED This is now my second one of these , first going strong running power to shed, needed second to extend power round garden as first is trunked under soil. Just has every thing you need...rcd plug end + power switch on reel , easily visible cable , rcd is as easy as opening a plug if you wish to run the cable as I did with first. 4 sockets and a great length...Definitely recommend for anyone ! 24 Sep 2015

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
None of the Masterplug cable reels has RCD protection built into the reel, as this would leave the cable from the mains socket unprotected.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
This product uses 10A rated cable so you are correct that the fully unwound maximum load should read 2,400W.
The RCD which is supplied, however, does have a 13A rating so a maximum load of 3,120W.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
This cable reel has a cable rated for a maximum constant current flow of 10A, which means a maximum of 2,400W of power consumption.
If your garden tool runs at less than 2,400W (2.4kW) then this reel will be suitable, if not then you will need a 13A rated reel instead.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
The Safety RCD Plug shown attached to reel 77639 is the standard Masterplug model so yes will be the same one.

Answer: 
HI, thank you for your product enquiry.
Best practice would dictate than any extension cable is for temporary use only, for longer term connections a more permanent solution using Steel Wire Armoured (SWA) cable with an appropriate current carrying capacity for the intended application should be considered.
