Today for review I’ve got a product that I wouldn’t exactly call exciting but it’s one of those types of things that everyone has and needs at on time or another, it’s a power strip. This strip has six standard outlets but it also has two UBS ports located at the bottom of the strip to charge your devices. The addition of the UBS ports is certainly handy, as long as you have your USB cable you shouldn’t need the power adapter. Read on to learn more..

Let’s start with a quick video unboxing:
The power strip comes in everyone’s favorite sealed plastic clamshell style package. It’s clear so you can see everything and there’s plenty of information listed for you on the back about the power strip.
The power strip itself is made of plastic just like most are. The power cord is heavy duty and it’s about 1.5 feet long
The main power switch is the rocker style and it does have an LED in it to indicate when power is turned on.
There are six standard three prong outlets on the strip. For the most part the strip is unremarkable.
What makes the strip interesting is the addition of two USB ports located at the bottom, these are 2.1amp so they should provide a fast charge for most devices.
The back is plain just some technical data. What’s missing though is holes to be able to hang the strip if you wanted to. This isn’t a big issue, it’s just nice to have the option to hang the strip.
For testing I plugged stuff into the power outlets and the USB ports and everything worked perfectly fine.
This power strip has the welcome addition of two USB ports which I’m sure will come in handy for most people as it seems most things are charged via USB these days.
The power strip is inexpensive at about $15.
So it’s a power strip with USB ports, there’s not much more to say really. It does what it’s supposed to do, provide power to your stuff and it also provides power to USB devices.
