    Fills a needed niche-but not as well as it should

    THE GOOD: Plugs everywhere!, dark color, 2 usbs, right angle plugUSB port limited to 1.1amp, 13 plugs not realistic, SHORT warranty, no $$ guarantee, cheap feel Relatively affordable option for someone needing more outlets and a USB charger but I have one issue and one concern that stops me from recommending this device. THE BAD: USB ports are a limited to 1.1 amp reguardless of if both are used. Usually chargers will output full amps if only one USB is used. This has a stated output of 2.1 amps. I only own one USB V/A tester so I can't confirm total output other than it will not push over 1.1-1.2 Amps on either port. CONCERNS: short warranty is not reassuring (90 days) since the primary reason most will buy this is the USB ports and they will be the first to fail. The build quality and weight makes it feel very cheap, again not reassuring. In the past I have had good luck with dynex products. Also, the 13 outlets are only nice if you need the plug position variety. I wouldn't try to max out capacity unless you had small plugs and mounted this device down. VERDICT: Id say if your buying this over other devices and the USB ports are a primary concern (especially if you plan on charging tablets) I'd say definitely pass on this. Id return if I didn't buy this primarily trying to use up RZ certificates. Take away the USB ports and you can better deal on a higher quality device, especially sale items.

    I bought this because i have a lot of big adapters. Although it offers 12 outlets, the ones in the middle get crowded out by my big adapters so they can't be used at the same time. there are only 4 widely spaced outlets to accommodate large adapters. However i do like the 2 charging usb ports and the price was great as i researched and found outlet strips with widely spaced outlets are hard to find and quite expensive when you do find them.

    Works as expected, but they mounting holes are unusually small (smaller than a drywall screw head) if you want to mount it on the wall it the back of entrainment unit. And it doesn't come with screws, at least mine didn't. But good spacing between plugs for wall wart transformer plugs.

    I need a unit like this because I had so many different size transformers and wanted USB capabilities. It would have been much nicer if they had spaced the outlets even further apart. Plus the outlets themselves seemed a little sloppy for being new.

    Just a surge protector

    It’s a basic surge protector and covers up to 1000 joules. For the past month I’ve used it with small electronics. Wish it had a warranty coverage of a certain amount for your electronics. If it did it would get a five star

    The product is great. It is convenient to have usb charging outlets built in. I withheld two stars because of the condition of the product I received. It appeared to be an older return/open box item. That deters me from buying from Best Buy's website again.

    Usb is only 1.0 so charging a note 9 phone will take for ever using the usb, plug wise for being cheap is actually awesome i can fit 12 of my cords on it at 1 time

    Not the best, but got at a decent price on a daily deal. Some of the grey sliding plug covers have come off. Don’t think I would recommend even at this price point.

    the outlets work fine but most of them are to close together so your not able to plug ac adapters next to each other.usb plug ins are a good addition though

    I needed a power strip with more outlets that were spaced out to allow for the varying sizes of plug ins. This fit the bill.

    This meets the need, a plethora of sockets to plug in all your devices and a couple usb sockets to charge my phones too. Perfect in every way.

    I don't know why all these outlets list so tightly, which make you cann't use all of them.
