8 Outlet Rotating Surge Strip - 2160 Joules
Protect your electronic equipment from damaging voltage and current spikes with this Monoprice surge protector!
This model features eight protected power outlets, six of which can rotate 180°, which makes them perfect for use with bulky AC power adapters, without blocking adjacent outlets. It is rated for 120V, 15A, 1800 watts and provides up to 2160 Joules of power protection. It can handle up to 144,000A current spikes.
An LED on top illuminates to indicate that the surge protector is providing protection to your equipment. When the protection circuitry has been fully consumed by power and current spikes, the protection light will no longer illuminate, indicating that the surge protector should be replaced. A second LED indicates that the surge protector is plugged into an outlet with a valid ground.
Questions and Answers
6 rotating sections don't seem to go quite the full 180 degrees, but it's close enough to not matter. Rotation action is pretty stiff, but in the end it's probably better that way so they don't turn when you don't want them to. Depending on your adaptors, you might have to plan a bit before plugging everything in, but I can't imagine a situation where you couldn't use every single plug.
A pair of little flip out bits on the "bottom" seem to be there as cable guides. They don't do a whole lot if your wires aren't the right weight or going in that direction. But you could certainly use them with a cable tie/wrap if you need it.
There is a wall mount screw slot on each end, slotted so that you can mount it horizontally, with the power cable on either end. The slots aren't suited for vertical mounting (though I'm sure there are those who could make it work).
Pretty happy with the result!
PROS: Hard to imagine a scenario where you couldn't fit 6 - 8 "wall wart" adaptors on this strip.
Clear, easy to see power indicator. Sturdy construction.
CONS: Wall mounting slots not suited for vertical alignment. Power button is a little fussy.
Rotation is a little chunky.
PROS: I was able to use every outlet, even with a bunch of big plugs that didn't all fit together on my old surge protector.
Outlets stay turned where put them, but are easy enough to move when you want.
Nice solid heft and feel.
CONS: None so far!
