Just FYI the link leads to a 2-pack making this an even better deal. You should add that to the title.

Too bad this doesn’t have surge suppression or USB, but the price and the flat plug for those receptacles behind furniture get this deal a green light.

Thanks OP, upvoted!

You can see the UL mark on the plug in the pictures. The C and US on each side of it indicates it meets standards for both countries.

Coincidentally I needed one of these last week, and I checked all the local dollar stores, including Dollarama. Nothing like this one, with a flat plug to fit behind furniture and 3 x 3-prong outlets.

I have been looking for a long time, nothing at $4dollarama. I'm okay paying for this though as I need it sooner rather than later.

First pic from the two pack.
No context on whether it's an issue with what they plugged in or if it's an issue with the power cord.

i would suspect they tried to plug in items that drew too much current its only rated for 13Amps or 1625 Watts

This is now the image that shows up when this thread is linked to from social lol.

Was going to buy this until I saw your picture. I have a feeling they plugged in a very high amperage device using an extension cord that was not made for it (like an AC). But still, without context better safe than sorry.

Warm deal IMO. IKEA and Canada Computer usually sell similar (or perhaps better) ones.

This is rated for 13 amps, as is the Home Depot version, presumably because of the 16 gauge wire. But some appliances can need 15 amps. Even so, it shouldn't catch fire and burn out - that would be due to poor quality internal connections.

The no-name dollar store electrical plugs with fake certifications are sometimes pretty scary if you open them up to take a look, but you'd think Amazon would have done reasonable QA on their AmazaonBasics supplier.
