Every 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 Cable Matters 6-Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector and it is one of my favorite little gadgets for making my life easier. It is available in both black and white depending on your preferences.
There are so many reasons I love this thing. First is my wife and her fricken air fresheners that plug in. She has them all over, and okay they smell nice but plug in one and you loose two outlets. This lets me take them back for more practical things like my favorite power failure lights. But I will admit those too take way an outlet and most of the time it doesn’t matter.
But then you are cooking and want to plug in your spice grinder or some other gadget, fricken outlet is blocked. By expanding dual boxes into quads or six ways you can still plug in another item or two.
Next there are the USB ports, these have two 2.4 amp charging ports for USB devices. While not as fast as 3.1 USB ports they are not snails either. I don’t really use them that much anyway because we have a charging station in the dining room. But there are times when the phone is low and say I am cooking, I want to plug it in but am listening to music and don’t want to walk to the other room to skip songs, etc.
The next thing I love is something that could be a problem for some folks or in some rooms, suffice to say I won’t put one of these in my bedrooms. Why? Well they have a green power indicator light on them. It is actually bright enough to be like a night light. So when you get up in the night you have enough light not to stub your toe. I am sure you could paint over part of this light to dim it down a bit if you wanted to.
Last but not least the entire unit is a surge protector that protects your electronic devices from surges. And to top it all off, they give you two micro USB charging cables with it for free, total cost, 17 bucks with free shipping on Prime.
Frankly I have looked at dozens of similar products and for the money nothing beats this one. So check out the Cable Matters 6-Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector today and take back your outlets!
