I recently set up a soldering station on my old desk in the corner of my room. However there are no power sockets near there so I had to daisy chain two extensions cords to deliver power to my solder station and fan. Is it a safe solution?
I read online that it is dangerous because you can overload the socket but I doubt that. I live in the UK and in every electrical appliance it is legally required to have a fuse, and just in case I made sure to check that every single appliance plugged in to the extension cords have a fuse. On every block of the power extension there is an additional fuse. I am also not exceeding the 13 amp limit of the plug, (double checked with a calculator). There is one more thing though, I am using the first power extension to power my desk (two monitors and pc) but that adding the current draw of that to my total current draw still does not exceed 13 amps. I live in the UK and the electrical system is pretty safe. A fuse for every plug, a fuse for every wall, safest plug in Europe (potentially the world) and an RCD that protects every socket in the house. Is it safe to do so?
