This is so much better than my current power strips, which are white and aren't nearly as generous in size and outlets. I love that I can charge my phone too! The black color will keep it from looking dirty while on the floor. Right now I have it on my nightstand so I can easily charge my tablet, but I plan to move it soon so I can plug in my alarm clock and fan, I'll still be able to charge my tablet and phone.
This is a top of the line power strip and I recommend it. I want to get another for my computer and TV.
Cool! Awesome! Lights up!
The most awesome power strip I own now! First of all, I LOVE how the clear sides of the power strip light up green with the words "protected" on one side and "grounded" on the other. I assume if they don't light up or turn red that you are either not protected or not grounded. It looks so cool! Aside from all the "technical" things this power strip is capable of I love it just for how it looks! It has a 6 foot cord and 2 spots to plug in USB devices. Here is the information on the technical part of the surge protector: 2-port 2.1A USB charger, 12 protected power outlets, 4320 Joules of protection, 2-in-1 Power/Circuit breaker switch, Built in EMI/RFI filter, and UL/cUL Rated. So basically you can plug in all your devices and they will be protected from any electrical surge AND it looks really really cool!
Prettiest power strip ever
This thing is cute. The green light on the sides that illuminate when this device is plugged in and turned on via the switch adds to the appeal. 12 outlets with 2 ports for USB chargers. Lightweight and portable. Three prong wall plugin. There is a sleek glass-looking plastic cover over a shiny, black casing. Highly recommend. Thank you to Walmart Spark Reviewer program for allowing me to try this necessary, and beautiful power strip. I have other power strips in my home. They are basic looking. Nothing special. This is fancy, compared to the others. I have had people comment on this power strip, asking how well it works, and how great it looks. No one ever commented on my other power strips. My phone charges faster on this strip, by the way. And I have never owned a power strip that also included USB ports. Very convenient. UL rated. 6 foot cord. Protect up to 4320 joules. Highly recommend. You cannot go wrong with this power strip.
Plugable 12 Outlet Strip - Great product!
This Plugable 12 Outlet Power Strip with 2 Port USB Charger is a great product. It is exactly what I needed to organize my electronics. This power strip has everything needed to get all those cords and outlets in one place.
The first thing is that it has a very attractive front cover. It is a modern, shiny black, hard plastic board with green squares around the outermost plugs. This board is grounded and has a circuit breaker switch.
The two USB chargers are located in the middle of the board with white printing so you can see where to plug in your electronics.
The best thing for me is that it has a 6-foot cord. I know that the one picture doesn't look so neat but my old set-up was, one surge protector plugged into another surge protector because the cord was not long enough and one surge protector did not have enough outlets for what I needed.
All-in-all, I really like this set-up and everything has an outlet with a couple extra to spare!
Lots of protection
This plugable has lots of protection. It protects electrical from damaging spikes of voltage. This model includes 12 protected power outlets with the 4 corner designed for AC power adapters plus it has a 2 port shared USB ports rated @ 2.1A. The specs are: Electric rating 120 V/60 HZ. The power capacity is 15A/ 1800 watts. Jules rating of 4320 Joules, It's clampling voltage is 330 Volts with a spike protection of 6000 Volts and a max spike current of 252,000A. A response time of a fast 1 nanosecond. The filter range is 150HZ - 100MHZ, the filter attenuation is 5dB. It also takes up lots of space, and it's definitely worth it. The measurements are 12" long 5 1/2" wide and 1 1/4 " thick. If you have electrical equipment that you really want protected this is the product for you.. The power cord is a #10 and 6 feet long, giving plenty of protection. I understand it is also available with a 20 foot AC cord. Yes it is UL/cUL rated. This is top of the line, the one you've probably always wanted.
This ain't no ordinary power strip
The first thing I noticed as soon as I took it out of the box was how nice and sleek looking it is. With a total of 12 outlets, it can power up plenty. The 4 outer corners are spaced separately for larger AC power adapters. It provides EMI/RFI filtering for "clean" electric. All of the power outlets have sliding covers which makes it more safe. It can support up to 15amp, 1800watts total power combined for all devices it's powering. With over 4200 joules of absorption and a clamping time of less than 1 nanosecond, anyone can feel their devices are truly safe. Another great feature is the edge illumination indicating your electrical outlet is properly grounded and the power strip "protection" is still able to do it's job. The cord is 6 feet long and is thick! The on/off switch doubles as a circuit breaker for the power strip. The integrated USB charger ports is a very nice addition but I would have preferred the capacity of 2.1 amp not being shared. Not a big deal but just increases charge time for some devices. Walmart has a great price for this and it is definitely one of the highest quality power strips we've ever come across. Specs are great and it also appears to be very well made. It makes some other power strips look like glorified extension cords.
Premium Power Strip
This is truly a premium power strip and surge protector all in one. I have this hooked up to a flat screen tv, roku streaming stick and also a wireless transmitter for my outdoor stereo system. As each individual device is plugged in the unit lights up in that area to verify proper grounding and also that it is being protected. It's very cool looking. The unit itself is heavy and everything about it seems to indicate a very high quality piece. The finish is very nice, the LED lighting looks good and the cord is 6 feet long and very robust. There are also slots on the back that if you wanted to mount this on a wall you could. It also has a separate on/off switch.
The design itself is very smart. There are 8 individual outlet plugs grouped in the middle on both sides. There are also 4 separate outlets at each corner for plugging in those large AC adapters that so many different things use. This is really a good feature because on a standard power strip you almost always have to give up using several of the outlets in order to plug the AC adapters in. This unit solves that problem.
As an added bonus, there are two direct USB charging ports. This is a big plus for our operation. We have this unit in our pool house. Yes, we get a lot of guests over the summer especially the grandkids who always seem to be looking for a plug to either charge phones or tablets. And, they almost never have the AC plug but somebody almost always has their USB cord. It's really a big plus having the USB charging ports built in.
I would definitely buy more of these as the need arises, and it's also a pretty potent surge protector for all those expensive electronics,

Plenty of outlets
The Plugable 12-Outlet Power Strip With 2-Port USB Charger is exactly what I have been needing. It has a six foot cord that allows me to place it where it is easily accessible. My bedroom has a TV, printer, PS3, speaker system and a fan and only 2 outlets that are usable for that area. Since my other tech devices are usually in there with me, that is where all the charging takes place as well. This outlet strip is perfect for helping me eliminate the need for extension cords. It also helps eliminate the need adapters for the phones and tablets when needing to charge them as well. With the USB charging ports included, I can easily charge my phone and tablet at the same time and have my other outlet in the room available for other uses. While this power strip allows for 12 items to be plugged in, I doubt that I would ever use that many devices or have that many plugged up at once on one outlet. This is great for anyone to use especially if they have cable devices, TV, Satellite receiver boxes, DVD players, home theater sound systems and gaming units to plug up. The four corner outlets allow plenty of room for larger adapter bricks to be plugged in. It also has sliding covers to keep debris from getting into unused outlets. It has a surge protection of 4320 Joules. It also has built-in EMI/RFI Filter. 2-in-1 power / circuit breaker switch and is UL/cUL Rated. It also lights up green on the sides which is nice. Overall, I am very happy with this device and plan on getting another one for my livingroom.
