Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is is a 2-fer. Let’s start out with these 1-Foot Extension Power Cables in a 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 8.99 for a 5 pack with free shipping they are very cost effective as well.
Here is another use a few of our appliances have VERY short cords. Such as our crock pot and my Carey Canner. I have power run to the island in my kitchen, I don’t need or want a big cord to plug in these things but the stock cords are just short enough to be a pain in the ass when trying to plug them in. I just added one of these to them and leave it attached at all times. Now they are long enough to work with no headaches and no dangling cord for the dog to run into and pull the damn thing off the counter with. It is a simple and cheap solution to a problem, I always love those.
Now check out this other option, these are a hydra that creates a 4-way splitter function. Total length is just 1.5 feet. These are so much more flexible then solid splitters like this. Like the 1 foot individual ones they can make life under a desk or behind a TV a lot better. I use them for my charging station for all my power tools.
Neither of these little devices solves your problems for an end of the world scenario but both make life just a bit better on a daily basis. I always keep a few of both in the “junk drawer” in our kitchen and a couple in our Black Out Kit you never know what you will need them for until it pops up, and when it does you are grateful to have them.
