12 Outlet Power Surge Protector w/ 2 Built-In USB Charger Ports - 3420Joules
Protect your electronic equipment from damaging voltage and current spikes with this Monoprice surge protector.
This model includes twelve protected power outlets, 4 of which are positioned for AC power adapters, and a 2-port 2.1A USB charger. The clear plastic tabs on the sides of the unit illuminate green to indicate when the surge protector is providing protection to your equipment and when a proper ground is detected.
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. When the grounded tab is not illuminated it indicates that there is a problem with the house wiring and that the ground is not properly connected to the power outlet.
The surge protector has 4 keyholes on the back, allowing it to be secured to a wall or other surface.

PROS: I really like the USB charging ports in the middle. Helps me avoid using those sometimes bulky converters that come with the products. And the spacing of the AC ports allows me to use the bulky AC/DC converters for other products without covering up any other ports, but isn't so big it become unweildy.
CONS: The green lights on the side are really bright if they are in the same room you're trying to sleep in. I ended up putting duct tape on them. Enough light comes through for me to see them when I want to, but I don't have that green glow lighting up that entire part of my room at night.
PROS: smooth finish, easily wiped clean, plenty of outlets, slim (thin) design
CONS: None at all.
PROS: Plentiful and well spaced plugs with room for those w/charging transformers at the plug end. Two usb charging ports. This is a well thought out surge protector.
CONS: A 90 degree power plug would help when wall plugs are behind furniture. I had to purchase an adapter for my situation. The green lights are large and emit too much light for a bedroom setting. They need a switch or if they could simply be pushed in to darken it would be great.
PROS: -12 ports
-2 usb ports for charging devices
-Greatly spaced out
-Has covers/sliders to close ports that arent used
CONS: -LED is really bright annoying if its in your room
-angled plug would be nice for those tight to reach spaces and not have to worry about it getting unplugged.
PROS: plenty of surge protected outlets
plenty of grounded outlets
extra space for wall warts (2 surge & 2 grounded)
two 2.1 amp USB chargers
able to mount flat on the wall
CONS: green LED power lamps very bright
power cord plug sticks out from wall
I have to figure out how to block the green LED lights.
They light up the otherwise darkened room.
PROS: Room for big fat wall warts, without blocking any outlets.
CONS: The green LED lights.
They light up an otherwise darkened room.
PROS: Charges iPad (3rd gen) fine
CONS: Green "Grounded" light too bright
For my needs this is the best size of power strip one of whose most important features is the extra space around plug-ins to accommodate bulky A/C adapters. The adapters not only have enough 'elbow room', they have 'tail room' too: The cords can bus down the centre of the strip, they don't need to hang over the sides. (Where there's no issue of conflict between EMF this helps keep the work area tidy.)
As well, the adapters plug-in from the sides.
Both the length of the power cord and the visual appearance of the board are mature and considerate. (If you're wondering why I use those words look around your workspace: How many glowing, glaring, shining, flashing, short-corded and otherwise short-sighted devices aren't simply mature and considerate? I want a workspace not a pinball arcade.)
For the job this power strip does I probably wouldn't have trusted it if its regular retail price were less.
PROS: Devices can plug into the strip from the sides rather than in a row in line with the power cord.
Bulkier A/C adapters have room to sit side-by-side.
'Cooperative' visual appearance.
The only things I'd change are the bright LEDs, easy enough to cover if required. And where I have mine placed you can't see them anyhow.
We bought two of these, one of them does not sit perfectly flat on our floor. Not really a problem.
Would love to see these in a black finish, preferably flat black.
PROS: Lots of sockets spaced in a logical pattern, especially the two sockets on each end.
CONS: Bright Green LED
