    Slim surge protector, but measure!

    After searching for some time, I decided to go with this surge protector. I actually ordered a clearanced one for store pickup, but once I arrived to the store I swung by to look at the other available products. Of course I decided on this one instead of the clearanced model. I have a 65 LG OLED tv with the special LG OTW150 Tilting Wall Mount. Due to the slimness of the mount and tv, this surge protector worked great. However, due to the location of the outlet and where the mount is located, when installed and the mount is all the wall flush with the wall, the surge proctor does not allow the mount to tilt. Therefore, make sure you have the clearance you need below the electrical outlet to fully articulate and tilt your mount with the surge protector plugged in. I gave it 4 stars due to the amount it hangs below the outlet. Other than that a great product. Let's hope it never has to do its job.

    This little surge strip is a convenience and a piece of mind. I like how small it is and minimal. I have it out of sight with my modem and router plugged in with also a lamp. It also has the convenience of two usb plugs that I can use to change my iPhone. I purchased a 6 ft long charging cord that reaches from it behind the couch to reach where I'm sitting. It's the little things that make the difference. Also, the usb power outlet is just about a little more powerful than the power block that an iPad needs for charging. Works well.

    I bought this because it was economical (aka cheap). Bad move... for something this important I should have spent more on a better unit. This is a one star unit. I liked it because it was black and matched the counter and backsplash in the kitchen. It was handy for guests to charge phones from the USB port. I think I never plugged anything into the AC outlets...except maybe once when I bought it, just to test it. I just noticed that the "Protected" light is off. The unit still functions but may not be protected- the instructions say to replace it. Of course, a few days out of warranty.... and probably 12 months since I first powered it up...hmmm.

    Excellent Low Cost Option

    Based on the existing reviews, I decided to purchase this surge protector and am very satisfied with my decision. It's an excellent utilitarian option whose cost makes it a far better option than most other wall mounted offerings. It works in tight spaces because the USB and outlet connections are on the edges of it. I purchased several of them to place around the house in areas where major appliances need to be protected from unexpected surges and have not experienced any issues. I suggest waiting until they're on sale during a 1 day sale-pick up a few. You will be very happy you did.

    This was exactly what I was looking for. I needed something that I could use to plug in from the side. and the USB ports were a bonus for me, I use them more often then I thought I would. The only negative thing I could say is about the blue light. At first I thought it was nice, however it took less than 24 hours to realize it is bright and lights up the room at night. I put a couple pieces of electrical tape over the light to remedy the problem. It may not bother others. I just like it completely dark when I sleep. With that said I would still purchase this again.

    I bought this solely as it was on sale, otherwise I probably would have passed on this. That being said I am very glad that I did. I already have several phone charger bases but felt that this would come in handy since I do not have to keep track of a charger base. It has 2 USB ports for your phone and/ or accessories and electrical outlets on the sides so you don't lose any electrical outlets by using it. It doesn't come with any power cords for your phone, so you will have to use your existing one or buy a new one to go along with it. I noticed that it also seems to charger my cell phone much faster as well.

    Rocketfish 4-Outlet/2USB Wall Tap Surger Protector

    I've had this about 3 months now and it works fine in my 70 year old home. It is a super way to reduce the bulk at the outlet with the USB ports on top and the sockets coming out the side. All the cords/plugs don't stick out from the wall and we can move items back against it if needed. Slim and nice design. We have had several storms lately bringing multiple power surges and outages and everything seems in order and working well. I would highly recommend this unit.

    We hung a TV above a dresser and with the outlet now up behind the TV, this nifty box shaped surge protector hides perfectly behind the TV and we don't have to look at cords running down the wall between the tv and dresser! The little blue light let's you know it's working but doesn't glare at you because it's behind the set. Plan to use another in the kitchen area since it won't take up any counter space!

    Rocket fish Wall Surge Protector

    I purchased this on a whim because I needed to replace a defective unit (non - rocket fish). I like that the outlets are oriented on the sides of the charger vs. on the front. It makes for a nice fit behind furniture. And the two USB adapters seem to be charging my phone and watch without issue. Also, it has a really cool blue indicator, I think everything is going to some sort of blue lighting.

    I bought this product because we had just bought a new washing machine and I wanted to make sure the computer couldn’t get burned out by a power surge. We like this surge protector because it has one light to show that it’s on and a second, different-colored light to indicate the the surge protector is activated. I haven’t had it long enough, yet, to know that it has prevented damage to my new machine, but it’s one less thing to worry about!

    Good adapter for the money

    This is a good overall outlet adapter giving multiple charging ports for both USB and standard 3 prong AC plugs. It is a little larger footprint than I had expected, but I was putting this under and behind things, so it is not a significant issue for me. If you are looking for a low profile option, I would just suggest an in-wall outlet with both USB and AC options (which I have also installed in parts of my house). This does offer the addition of surge protection which is a good bonus though. Overall a good product for what it is.

    Many people, including me, routinely have plugged their smart phones and tablets into electrical outlets directly without ever thinking what would be the dollars lost if there was an electrical surge due to a nearby lightning strike. I recently purchased a new Apple IPad and the thought of "what if" came to me as I was plugging it in to recharge. When I looked for a product that I could use to protect my investment, I found the Rocketfish 4 Plug Surge Protector to be just what I wanted. Now I confidently recharge my Smart Phone and IPad and feel totally protected.

    Needed Extra Outlets

    We needed extra outlets in the kitchen because I have our WiFi extender plugged in and it takes up the double plug. When we want to use the crockpot or the can opener, it is a pain in the neck and I got sick of listening to the husband complain about having to plug them in. This was a Daily Deal at Best Buy, I read the reviews, and liked the price. Not only did it extend my plugs, but has surge protection and iphone usb charger ports. It has worked great and we are all happy with the results.

    Nicely Designed Problem Solver

    If your home is like ours, you have mobile devices all around the house and need to keep them charged up. The best way to do that is with a surge-protected power source and this one is small enough to scatter a few around without spending much money. The design is nice also, because it lets you run the power cords parallel to the wall instead of sticking straight out. That way, if the power outlet is behind a piece of furniture you can put the furniture right against the wall. I give this handy little gadget 5 stars!

    This is a great convenience item. How many times have you had to move a piece of furniture because you needed to make room to plug in some device? This outlet helps solve that problem. It doesn't take up unreasonable space behind the furniture; and, more importantly, you can plug in one or more devices using a standard plug or USB cable from the side or top. I bought 2 on a Deal of the Day, and I am glad I did. Even if you don't get it on sale, the convenience it affords is worth the money.

    I bought this for my computer and scanner. The four outlets are just enough for the purpose I'm using it. I chose this over others because of the orientation of the outlets and that it plugs directly into the outlet so there is no cord involved. The outlets are on the sides, two each side. This allows for the desk I use to be placed much closer to the wall. It also has two USB charging outlets on the top, which are handy. I ended up buying another for a TV, cable box and blu ray player.

    Been on a few road trips and sleeping at hotels while carrying so many power blocks and cables was annoying. This thing doesnt take up space at all, looks sleek, can charge via USB cable or power block. I carry around my Garmin Fenix usb cable, an iPad power block, one usb type C to charge my portable battery/beats headphones and two lightning cables to charge my apple products. Takes up little space with all that gear vs a regular power strip surge protector.

    This is a very affordable product and works great. This is the second one I have bought and will definitely look at buying more later. The outlets are all placed great for convenience use no matter where it is plugged in. I have one behind my bed to plug in our phones and heated mattress cover. My daughter uses it next to her desk to plug in all of her devices.

    I have several different versions of these. Only one came with a center screw to anchor this to the plug so you aren't unplugging the whole unit from the wall when you unplug one cord. This unit has the outlets on the side so you aren't pulling it out of the wall like the others. Plus, the small blue protected lights are just the right size and brightness (not glaringly bright like some) and the glossy black unit looks great! Only four stars because it really should have the center screw anchor.

    Bought this as just a temporary surge protector and after using it realized it was a going to be a permanent choice. The plug-ins are on the side which is the best feature so you don't damage the power cords for your devices. The USB ports on to are an amazing feature; they allow me to charge my phone and also a game controller at the same time. Bottom line is; you can't go wrong with this product. It's priced perfectly and gives me everything I need in a surge protector
