Rated 4 out of 5 by Outdoor switch Appears to be a well made product and comes with all the bits required except for a grommet for the cable entry. I was told this is due to the different types of cables so in order to provide a selection this would increase the price of the switch, but think and ordinary one would have been useful and very inexpensive. 11 Aug 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outside switch Great switch and easy to fit. Provides great value for money 16 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice looking product Does as the box says, looks great, price not too bad either, would recommend if you need a smart install that you don't have to go back in a year or so to change the switch. 4 May 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Product not same as picture I have fitted loads of these in the past BUT BG have recently changed the design from the one shown in the picture for the worse. There is no longer a rubber seal, the fixing screws are not stainless steel and the switch terminals are smaller and the terminal screws are pretty soft. The neutral block for the neon is too small to accept a 1.5mm cable, having fitted the tiny little covers over the screw holes it is impossible to remove them again without breaking them rendering them useless in the future. Way too early to comment on reliabilty. They have obviously redesigned to cut manufacturing costs but I am not impressed 21 Mar 2016

The description says that this is a 20A switch but the load is only 240W (which equates to 1A).
Can this switch take a 13A load for hours without frying?

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
Your calculation is correct, 240W would be only 1A at 240V so the total capacity for this switch is actually 4,800W (or 4.8kW).

Cable Access

Is there a cable access into the switch from the back of the box? I'd like to pass the cable direct through the wall so no cable is showing.

Answer: 
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry.
There is an optional 20mm diameter drill-out entry on the rear of the box, with a twin moulded ring around it for a bead of sealant to prevent leakage between the wall and the box.
