Turns any standard two socket outlet into 6. Small light on top is a nice touch, not too bright. Screws onto existing plate which make it's very sturdy, other wall strips only plug into existing socket which results in entire wall strip being removed when unplugging.
PROS: Turns any standard two socket outlet into 6. Small light on top is a nice touch, not too bright. Screws onto existing plate which make it's very sturdy, other wall strips only plug into existing socket which results in entire wall strip being removed when unplugging.
CONS: Sockets should have better spacing to accommodate bulky chargers.
I have no idea of its protection capabilities (and hope I never find out) but this looks and works great. The green light is about six feet from my bed but it doesn't bother me at all... just a nice night light.
I have an alarm clock and small lamp plugged in and I use the rest of the outlets for charging my phone and tablets, when needed. Because of the size of the plugs of the latter items, you really can't use all six outlets at once but I don't run into that problem simply because I don't need all of them at once. If you do, keep that in mind.
The bolt for the outlet provides a solid fit so that I can pull out plugs easily.
PROS: Solid fit Looks good
CONS: Outlets are close together so it is hard to use all 6
Works as described, bought a few for my home and some to send to past clients, they loves them. They seem to work great and the plugs are very firm, I was expecting a reset button but it has none. there is an very bright green light on it that says protected, I like it for my kitchen, it acts as a great night light but for my bedroom, I had to put about 3 layers of painters tape over it because it is so bright and annoying
I bought this surge protector to replace an aging corded protector, just to be on the safe side. I appreciate the now tidy appearance of six cords plugged in. Despite the brightness, I like the indicator light which confirms that the surge protection is active. Lastly, it's an attractive outlet, so it doesn't spoil the look of the room.
PROS: This surge protector comes with a long screw which fastens to the existing standard wall socket, ensuring a tight solid connection. Be aware, however, that "Decora" wall sockets do not have a centre screw, so this feature can't be utilized with them, though it doesn't prevent this surge protector from being used with them.
CONS: LED surge protection working light is a little too bright near sleeping areas. I've covered it with electricians tape. I suggest Monoprice re-design the product to have a small standard round LED, which is easily covered if need be.
PROS: Easy to install, increases number of outlets, working great so far, and you get a free nightlight which is awesome.
CONS: Works great until it heats up. Once it heats up it emits a horrid chemical smell and is almost unbearable for most people , I wouldn't recommend this surge protector in small confined areas such as exam rooms or anywhere there might be small children or people sensitive to chemical smells. For myself this is no problem because I enjoy the smell of overheating electronics.
