These days it’s easy to have upwards of 10 devices that need to be charged in your house at any given time, but that means using up tons of outlets to get them recharged. Stop using all the outlets in your house and unplugging lamps and other electronics just to charge something else, and instead invest in some power strips. Right now you can pick up one of CyberPower’s options for as little as $7.95 at Amazon.
You can pick between two great options. The first, which happens to have the lower price, has the ability to charge six devices at the same time and has swiveling outlets and is about $2 less than normal. If you have outlets that are hard to use because they are behind bookcases, dressers, or other furniture, the ability to turn these to the side to use is priceless. The other option, which comes in at $13.63 (a $5 savings), is more of a conventional power strip. It has a heavy-duty metal casing, 8 outlets, and features an automatic shut down if it detects an overload.
Neither option has any surge protection, but B&H Photo currently has one from APC with a 1680 Joules surge rating for just $12.49 right now.
