Oddly enough, the mains voltage in the eastern hemisphere is 220-250; The part of the world electrified by Siemens instead of Westinghouse. Bosnia Herzogovina where the OP is posting from is in the Eastern Hemisphere. Thus 250 v rated plugs would at least match the mains voltage, if not any equipment bought there.

In continental Europe (230V +/- 5% mains V), all schuko power plugs and wall outlets for home use are stamped "250V, 16A".
As far as I can see, HBL8666V is labeled "250V, 15A". I opened my metal strip and on the back of the outlet is 250V, 15A label.

So I don't see any problem here.

Those sockets look rather like the ones we used to find distributing power inside the racks occupied by Digital Equipment PDP-11s etc. I assume they are used for internal power distribution in other equipment. Not really intended for powering 'portable' devices - for that you need to use whatever is legal in your country.
