    Convenient Multi Outlet with Surge Protection

    I’ve bought 3 of these “on sale” over the last 2 years. They have lots of neat features, including 6 sockets that can point forward or sideways, 2 USB ports, 2100 joules of surge protection, and electrical noise conditioning. I have one in the bedroom I use to charge my phone overnight, in addition to providing power to a lamp, clock, and air cleaner. I have one in the bathroom so I can charge my electric razor and toothbrush while leaving my hair dryer and a lamp plugged in, and still have 2 free outlets. The swivel of the outlets is very convenient when hooking up multiple “bulky” chargers. I also placed one in the kitchen for extra outlets and USB charging ports. They are well made and offer lots of flexibility. I certainly am happy with them.

    I purchased this to replace an older, multiple outlet plug in that did not have surge protection. My older home has fewer power outlets but we have to ensure not to overload sockets. This was perfect. Because of its slim design, I was able to place it behind a piece of furniture, swivel the outlet plugs outward and use as needed. My furniture piece was able to be pushed closer to the wall than with the previous plug. Love that this has the 2 usb ports at the top, very convenient if you have the longer usb cords and hide the outlet behind something like I have. With the surge protection, I feel safer plugging in my cell phone and ipad. Rocketfish doesn't disappoint!

    Very Clean Looking

    Great surge protector to significantly reduce the space between the wall and the back of the furniture that holds the TV and the rest of the equipment. The previous surge protector sat on the floor and the furniture would only go so far back to the wall and created a noticeable gap. The fact that the outlets on the side of this protector swivel is a great feature and even more of a space reducer. The USB connections are also great as they actually reduce the number of iOS devices that I need an outlet for to charge overnight since I can now connect them right to the USB connections. My wife wishes that they came in white for the other two that I bought that aren't as hidden and would blend in with the wall a bit more.

    Gives power

    This is simply amazing. I can plug something into it, and it gives that device power. A must have if you want power to something and need more than two plugs. This little slice of heaven is not like a power box from the 70s. I have never tripped over it, and my house has not started on fire. The installation is super easy once you know what to look for: 1) Find outlet on wall 2) Plug into outlet 3) Plug device into unit 4) POWER!!! Truly an amazing invention and definite must have!!

    Surge protection and easy USB charging!

    We use this in our kitchen for a few small countertop appliances and for getting a quick phone charge during the morning routine. It's pretty darn convenient. My one gripe is that the plastic stabilizer plugs on the back didn't quite fit in our GFCI outlet near the sink so I had to saw those off, but the surge protector still sits very stable and works just the same. Highly recommend for any home or office, but is especially convenient for all the smart home devices these days!

    What a great space saver

    I like the design of it fitting flush against the wall. Our previous power strip/surge suppressor was the typical design that was placed on the floor. I used it for my tv and other audio video equipment and was placed on the floor behind an audio video cabinet. The width of a typical power strip with 6-8 outlets is about 4 inches wide, so I wasn't able to push my AV cabinet close to the wall. But with this wall mounted power strip, the cabinet is nearly flush to the wall improving the appearance.

    Great compact surge protector

    Needed a small compact surge protector to protect internet cable modem, WiFi router, phone base unit and cell phone charger with high level of joules due to constant power failures in my area. This unit met all my criteria and then some. Twist feature allows space for all the power conversion blocks to easily plug in. Also don't have to deal with everything being on the floor since it plug directly into the power socket. Thinking about putting one in every room in the house.

    Outstanding for the price! The swiveling outlets are an amazing feature and I have found that I use them a lot. They are perfect for "behind the nightstand" outlets since they won't stick out when you are using them. Another plus for "behind the nightstand" use is the USB ports located on the top. Perfect for plugging in your phone while you're asleep. Nothing negative to report a this point and I have had this for probably 6 months. Outstanding unit!

    Rocketfish is Rocking My World

    I HATE cords all over the floor or valuable items not being protected properly without surge protection. And we have a lot of electrical storms here in Iowa. The problem is that MOST surge protectors are not flexible or old fashioned and unattractive. THIS ONE is a stylish Gamechanger! It is sleek and even sexy! It IS flexible so the larger plugs can fit in neatly no matter what without sacrificing too many plug spots. It protects your gear but looks great and stays in the wall nicely also!

    Sleek solution to a tangled mess

    Bought one of these to help manage my cables in my entertainment center. Bought a house with wall mounted power supply to mount my tv.. I had originally bought a regular old fashion power brick..that soon became a problem since all the connections would not allow my entertainment center to be flush (as possible) against the wall. The rocket fish unit has single axis outlets that pivot allowing power cords to be connected from the side instead of the front allowing my entertainment to be a flush as possible to the wall.

    Nightstand? No problem.

    Ran out of outlets behind my nightstand and decided to pick this up. The USB ports on the top are more than enough to charge my power hungry 5.7" smartphone and a nice bonus that frees up yet another outlet. The swiveling outlets serve their purpose well, and my nightstand is closer to the wall than ever. I know some people are put off by "store brands", but Rocketfish has put together some nice products, and this is definitely one of them. I've since gladly purchased another one for the outlet behind my dresser.

    Allows furniture to be pushed back

    Ever get frustrated with having to keep your furniture pulled away from the wall or bending or breaking power plugs. Devices like this one allow you to keep your outlets flat with the plugs coming out anywhere in a 90 degree range of motion. I have had some similar devices that would only work at the 2 stopping points either fully out the side or fully out the front. That isnt the case with this one with having the added ability of being a surge protector as well makes me feel more comfortable with my devices.

    I bought one and then bought three more !

    I just love this Rocketfish wall surge protector. I bought one, and then bought three more for other parts of the house. I use the two USB outlets to charge my phone and headset and don't have to use bulky adapters. I particularly like that the plug-ins swivel, so the whole thing lies flat against the wall. The only way I can see to improve them is to have them in white or beige, to match the wall paint. But that's a small thing, compared to how great these surge protectors are.

    Expensive refrigerator is protected from surges

    After buying all new kitchen appliances from Best Buy, the installer suggested I buy good quality surge protectors (1500 joules or better). I purchased the item to protect my expensive refrigerator. I had to replace the computer in my old refrigerator when my neighborhood experienced many surges due to new construction and the computer blew. Very easy to install - it gives me a lot of peace of mind knowing my refrigerator is now protected from electricity surges and the warranty is great.

    I really like the flat profile of this surge protector. I also like the size - it is smaller than most surge protectors so it takes up less space. Not as bulky as most of these devices. Fortunately, I have not had the opportunity to witness this protector in action! I’ll update this review in the future if power goes out unexpectedly!

    After owning three of these, it is safe to say that I find the swivel feature very handy especially if you have narrow space between the outlet and your furniture. Note... I did find that the device occasionally got bumped out by the dog of an outlet that had one of those protective covers. After replacing the protective cover with a standard one, no issues.

    It gives me peace of mind knowing I’m not going to start a fire because of all the stuff I have to plug in! I’ve got my tv, cable box, PS4, Xbox and Apple TV and router all hooked up and it’s nice knowing this thing is not only turning my wall outlet from 2 plugs to 6 but it’s also protecting my home as well!

    I was soooo tired of having a surge protector dangling from the wall causing even more more cable clutter. Then I stumbled onto this Rocketfish that fits the neatness factor. The only drawback that I see is that you cannot plug anything else into the 2nd outlet... but this is minor trade off for all the wires, I only wish they had had white. That color would have matched my decor better.

    Great surge protector for behind mounted TVs

    After purchasing a large TV to be mounted on the wall, i needed to make sure i could plug in all connected devices, but only had 2 outlets behind the TV. This surge protector allows me to plug in my power to the TV, power to the cable box, power to my sound bar, power to my netgear powerline box. All of this was achieved without having to invert the power outlet and I didn't have to keep the TV sticking out from the wall too far.

    This was suggested by the Best Buy TV manager who sold me 2 Sony Smart screen TVs. At first I couldn't understand why I would want to spend extra money on "plugs" and throw away my floor surg protectors. Once installed in the wall, I could see why. My wall hanging TVs look professionally hung, kept the wires off the floor and now my cats cannot chew on floor wires again. Thanks for the suggestion!
