I have 2 of these sockets outdoors, specs say 240watts power output, I also have 2 garden lamps with an output of 60w, so 600w total-13amp fuse safe?

Main socket spur to 13amp fuse box to 2 outdoor lamps with 120w combined power supply and outdoor socket rated 13amp, spur from this socket to a duplicate socket further down the garden is the 13amp fuse safe to stick with?
Asked by: Aspenn
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket (weatherproof) is rated for 240V & 13A per socket (assuming that the circuit it is wired to is capable of carrying this) so each socket can feed 3,120W out, but the sockets themselves do not consume any measurable level of power. Therefore what you have listed is roughly 120W of power consumption, which is well below the 3,120W capacity of a 13A fuse and cable.

Hi, Can I extend the length of cable on this product and if so how would I do that?

Does this come with a rubber base/gasket for the back face when mounting?

Asked by: Elsubstar
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This Storm weatherproof range BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket comes with an integrated gasket inside the rim of the front section, which seals against the protruding lip of the supplied back-box to make the installation IP rated (with the use of appropriate cable entry glands where necessary). Also included in the kit are rubber caps for the pre-moulded fixing screw points, to seal the unit from any possibility of fluid leaching in past the screw heads.

What is the depth of the back box on its own?

I want to fit one externally to my caravan. I'm wondering if I'd be able to fit the back box between the inner lining and outer wall so that just the flap and sockets at protruding?
Asked by: Thorpesecuritysystems
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The design of the enclosure for this BG 13A 2G DP Switched Socket has a retained gasket inside the rim of the front section, which is engaged with the lip of the back box to make the enclosure watertight, so installing the box between the skins of your caravan would not allow this engagement and hence the product would not be watertight. Also, as this would be against manufacturer installation guidelines and advice you would void any warranty by installing it in such a manner.
