Saxony 1-Foot Extension Power Cable 5-Pack – Item of the Day

plugsEvery day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Saxony 1-Foot Extension Power Cable 5-Pack. What in the world do you need a 1 foot extension cable for?  How about this, you get a power strip or UPS for your computer, monitor, router, modem, speakers, etc.  You look and half of them are big old honking plugs!

Now one plug takes up three spaces on a power strip, next thing you know you are daisy chaining 3-4 strips and have a giant mess under your desk.  Instead you take a few of these and plug the big plug into one end and these into your strip, UPS or outlet.  Simple no?

These have made my life a lot easier and the underside of my desk and back of my TV a lot more organized.  At 10.44 for a 5 pack with free shipping they are very cost effective as well.

Remember you can always see the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop online you help support TSP and the work we do here.

  1. Great item, used them for years

  2. Here’s another awesome set of short extension cords: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BSHI92/ (Ziotek ZT1212590 Flat 18-Inch Power Strip Liberator, 5-Pack)

    While they’re almost twice as expensive as the Saxony item above, what I like about this set is that the plug is flat and right-angle, so they’re perfect for going behind bureaus, desks, anywhere where horizontal space is tight.

    They also line up nice and organized on your typical power strip. I’ve ordered at least two bundles of these for my home and office and can’t say enough good things about them.

  3. That’s not a bad idea. Hell I’ve got power cords coming out he wazo. Zip tie to keep them short.

    I use a 4 foot long power strip glued to the back of my desk. 12 outlets with enough spacing in between where nothing gets blocked.

  4. And one other option: ClearMax 3-prong Y-Splitter 1-ft Extension Cable – 16AWG (http://amzn.to/2s6S182).

    This one gives you 6 plugs for 3 receptacles. Note that splitting the single receptacle into 2 halves the amount of AMPS that can go through the plug. But that SHOULDN’T be an issue for you if you’ve already got it plugged into a power strip/UPS. (For the folks who think 4/6 is bigger than 5/6, that’s because the power strip is already limited in amperage by it’s own breaker and the circuit breaker in the wall receptacle circuit). If you’re using it in an emergency power situation, pay attention to your ampacity.

    Just moved offices and have a beautiful old-school oak desk. The extra foot allows me to have multiple monitors on a desk that was designed before people had monitors.
