By chance have you bought one? The outlet looks well built. Great price!
I wonder what is used to reinforce the gold plated copper female contacts so they retain their holding pressure?
I was lucky enough to find one when it was first released before it was plated with gold or rhodium. I use the unplated version and the gold plated version. It's a HQ product, pretty much the same as Cardas, AudioQuest, and Pangea offer, with various base metals and plating schemes.
It's the first and only true low-cost Audio Grade AC outlet. Pretty much a near-perfect knock-off, but not at the performance-level as the Furutech design it's based upon.
The brass back strap is massive, far better than any hardware store AC outlet, and the polycarbonate body is very solid and rigid. From what I gather, the base metal is phosphor bronze with excellent grip, but the contacts don't dig into an AC plug blade like a hardware store AC outlet tends to do.
