    Why do you ask?

    You need to be careful selecting MF products ................ wago's are only MF in certain situations.

    Personally I've used the Hager units for years.........

    I have only used the wagobox and I like it very much as a MF box.
    It is only the wagobox junction box that is classed as MF though not the wagobox light junction box.
    Also the wagobox is only classed as MF if it is fastened with a cable zip tie.

    I'm looking to spur off a ring.
    I can't chase the walls to existing sockets and can't think of another way around using a JB.

    Ok sounds like a good idea you may need 2 juction boxes if there not enough slack on the cable

    My own, it's for an extractor fan in the kitchen. The walls are tiled and I really don't want to have to re-tile if I can help it.

    Lighting circuit is a good idea, the extractor is only 140w.

    Yeh that JB and the socket thing (for the trainees thread) was all found in installation with massive faults and insane meter readings etc.

    Yes, an extractor fan is not a light, so don't connect it to a lighting circuit unless it is necessary to do so for it to meet regulatory requirements.
