    Tight Spots

    This strip has a lot of outlets , which is very nice. The downside is that it's good mostly for the small footprint plugs, when you use bigger footprint "chargers", it overshadow the adjacent ports making them unusable, especially, the middle row ones. The USBs are working fine. The surge protector didn't trip until now since I've never had power surge yet, neither I overloaded it. The price was reasonable since it was on sale. It also was delivered faster than I normally expect with BestBuy, good job, Thanks.

    works well but a little tight with the plug-ins

    so many power options out there to choose from. I picked this one as it had 2 usb connections and a rather high 1200 joule rating. I am happy I bought it but the plug-ins are a tad close so that any "brick" plugged in cant help but block one of the other outlets. So planning what should go where is a must. Also if everything is plugged in the usbs are a tad hard to get to. Not an issue if you just leave the cords plugged in but if switching out components all the time can get tiresome fitting them in. Overall nicely built. Cant speak to its protection as it has not been "tripped" but I am sure it is safe.

    I have been using this surge protector strip for about a month. So, I haven't had it tested in a storm. It is working well for managing several cords for my TV, antenna, converter box, etc. I have not used it for the USB ports. I like that it has space for larger plugs and has some going different directions in order to accommodate different needs. I also like the right-angle plug that allows it to lie flatter against the wall outlet. The strip is wider than I would like, but that is to accommodate all of the needs.

    Pros and Cons about this product. The joule rating is mediocre for this power strip to be used as a surge protector but 12 outlet is fairly good feature if your power adapters are not all too big. 2-USB help too, although amp is not high so dont expect fast on charging speed. 90day warranty is sub-standard but who will spend time claiming warranty for a $14 power strip? Workmanship is not great but acceptable. Will recommend if you can get this in a reasonable price.

    Great surge protector, hard to find

    This surge protector is exactly as advertised but loses a star because it was basically hidden in the store. There were three sections of different surge protectors all of which were more expensive than this one by at least $10. So to save that money I had to hunt around the store to find this one. It was on one of those little racks in the aisle between phones and computers. Good luck finding it!

    Well laid out power strip with good cord length

    First. right angled plug is a must for these. Cored length is 5' which is a nice length. Outlets are well arranged, these are always hit and miss based on your power connectors but there is plenty of room around each one. Like others said the USB shares the 2.1 Amps so real slow charging if using both. Warranty is too short at 90 days.

    If you're like me and most other people today, you never have enough outlets. With so many things to plug in at one location, this multi-outlet surge protector fits the bill. It's a little bulky and it would be better if the outlets could swivel to allow for larger plugs, but other than that it's a great buy.

    works well as a surge protector and usb charger, however the layout of the switch along with slightly shorter than expected cable has resulted in one of the 3 units I bought turning off due to hitting a shelf that it just barely makes it to if the cable gets pulled even the smallest amount

    The USB doesn't have a significantly more amount of power compared to the usual wall outlet block. Turbopower wasn't activated from a direct connection. It still charges well though, so it will do. Definitely saves 2 of the ports, so that's good.

    great product for the price, feels a little lite, and cheaply made, but it does everything I need it to, the usb ports work to charge my phone I was able to organize my under computer desk area and eliminate a power strip thanks to the plugins running both directions, Id probably buy another one if I had a need for it

    like 4 of the poorest at the bottom by the USB plug ins are like so close together you're pretty limited to what you can connect there definitely through my organization off. that being said its A LOT of connection in one and it has two usb so I cant complain too much.

    I replaced two (2) surge strips with this one device and it's working great. Love the twin USB charge ports...an added bonus over my old power strips. Just be careful of overall amp draw...so as to not have any overload problems/issues.

    I have a location in my den next to my recliner that was overwhelmed with plug in devices. The lamps, my Google Home, my iPhone charger and iPad charger. This power strip offered ample outlets (AC & USB) as well as surge protection all for a great price.

    I bought this and I must admit I thought it would be a return item but to my surprise it isn't. The only problem I have is the plastic covers that close the sockets when not in use comes out when I unplug an appliance. Other that that its great.

    With all the electronics nowadays that you have plugged into the walls to run, charge, amplify, etc., I thought a few of these may be helpful. In more ways then one. And at the price on "Deal of the day" I couldn't pass up.

    what you expect from a power strip lol - but, I love the sliding detail to cover part of the unused plugins. I wish it had a sliding cover for the usb ports aswell. I haven't used the usb plugs yet, but since the rest of it is working well I'm sure they're good too.

    Devices that have transformers built into the plug fit nicely due to the spacing between receptacles. Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is it is only offered in black. White would look nicer in some places in the house.

    Tho is a pretty good surge protector so far. I love the USB ports on them as I use to charge my ps4 controllers and the spaced plugs were good enough for all of my big plugs that normally take up 2 spots.

    There are many outlets with different directions, to serve different sizes of plugs. Additionally, the USB current is consistent and provides a fast charge for the phones and controllers plugged in.

    I purchased two of these surge protectors and they do a wonderful job. 12 outlets & two usb ports for $17.99 is a steal. I have so much room & the wires are not all over the place. Definitely a must buy for anyone who has a lot of entertainment or electronic devices.
