Have you ever had to plug a large black cube type of plug into a surge strip? The size of the black cube takes up two or possibly three outlets on the strip. That’s not fair, is it? So, what can be done about this outlet injustice? Well, take look at the Socket Sense Surge Strip and this problem looks to be solved by the clever folks at Ideative. The outlets on the strip are not only angled, but they can also be moved to accomodate bulky black plugs. From Ideative:
The Socket Sense surge protector handles all power adapters with ease. Simply expand or contract the movable sockets to adjust for the best fit. Compare this to a typical surge strip where power adapters typically block one or more sockets. Socket Sense can do the job of two ordinary surge strips.
Instead of using two surge protectors or possibly swapping plugs in and out of your surge strip, this looks like a very useful and innovative alternative in the war on cable clutter.
