    The quantity of outlets and USB ports combined with dual rotating, three-outlet feature adds functionality. The only drawback to the unit is that it doesn't stay in the wall outlet securely, especially when trying to remove plugged-in items. So, I wouldn't recommend this item for people who plan to use this as a temporary charging station power source; however, I would recommend it for more permanently plugged in use.

    Would be great if it stayed in place

    One of the side swivels doesn't stay in place and constantly wants to maintain a 45 degree angle between the forward and side position. Would stay if something was propped against it but I bought this for the outlet behind my bed that has a movable foundation so now every time I raise/lower the bed I need to adjust the surge protector...pretty annoying. Hopefully I just got a dud

    Charging ability

    The outlet is a unique one. It allows you to plug in appliances and swivel the outlets so you can place signature closer to the wall. It also has USB outlets to charge phones, laptops and other mobile devices. However, the USB outlet does not charge mobile devices sufficiently. When charging, it causes the device to cut in and out of its charging cycle.

    Functional but one flaw

    As an outlet it works great. The rotating plugs can be very helpful. The Joules rating on the surge protection is not very high. But the main flaw is you cannot screw it onto the outlet. Therefore when you have plugs facing forward and want to unplug something, it pulls away from the wall outlet. Other ones often have screw to the wall outlet to prevent this.

    Charges my Iphkne and watch & still has 6 recpticles. Only con is I wish it had a screw for a better hold to the wall with multiple outlets plugged. It has never fallen out, but I could see that it could possible have potential to do that. Other than that- great product!

    Slow charge

    The USB ports are a slow charge type, good if you keep a device plugged in all the time. Also instead of there being two plugs to fill the outlet, there is only one and just a plastic plug to stabilize it. My purchased was based on it being able to turn the outlets to the side.

    In ground-pin-up setups, this wall tap doesn't hold well at all. There's only a very small plastic prong on the second wall plug that doesn't help it much. Also the swivel sides seem to move on their own, they won't stay in place.

    It only has one plug in the back to go into the wall. It would be more stable if it had two plugs in the back. I've used it on kitchen appliances and my smartphones with no problem. Just not stable as I would like.

    Fits into 1 outlet?

    Unlike other units we’ve had, this one covers an entire double outlet yet only plugs into one outlet. This makes the unit a bit loose and we have to make sure to not accidentally unplug it. Love the pivoting feature.

    Swivels can be useful

    Cons: 1) USB ports are low powered, 2) If you try to pull a plug out, the surge protector may be pulled out of the socket because there is nothing (no screw) holding it in.

    This product is pretty good besides the fact that I wish it had a screw to attach to the wall. Everytime we take a plug out the whole thing comes out. So you just have to hold it while you take it out.

    Good product does what it’s supposed too, the only thing is that at night there is a very bright blue display light that is annoying.

    Fits well behind entertainment center but is very easy to pull loose from outlet. A simple screw hole for using existing outlet cover plate hole would have been great

    I LIKE THE STYLE, BUT IT IS ON THE HEAVY SIDE. MAY NEED A LEDGE OR SHELF FOR BETTER SUPPORT. ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE PETS THAT CAN KNOCK IT OUT OF THE WALL SOCKET OR TODDLER,

    Little Heavy for the Wall Socket

    If you can get it to stay in the wall socket without coming out then it's great but since it is so heavy it has to be positioned just right so it won't fall out.

    Works ok, but not so good for big plugs. I would find something else if you don’t have just normal plugs.

    This is a good looking outlet, but I only gave it 3 stars due to the cost of it. There are other brands that are just as attractive and work just as well for a lower cost.
