    Where can I get a power distribution unit?

    I realised the other day that our rackmount UPS (BlackBox ServSwitch UPS) can actually handle a lot more than the 2 switches that are plugged into it

    However there are only 2 outputs, so Im assuming I need a PDU to increase this?

    Problem is the outputs are standard C14 connectors (ie kettle leads) while all the PDU's seem to have C19 I think

    Anyone recommend one for under £100?

    According to APC, you can get C14->C19 cables, so it shouldn't be too difficult to get hold of the right cable and/or adapter you need.
