Lanshion 8 Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip with 4 USB Ports Desktop USB Charging Station – Item of the Day — 2 Comments

  1. According to the reviews, it has 4.5 Amps across the 4 USB ports, rather than 4.5 Amps to each one. The more you plug in, the less juice each one receives. So one device could be rapidly charged. However, four devices would bring it down to standard 1 Amp (slow) charging speed.

    Of course, you could always just plug any additional devices into one of 120V sockets and get the full amps, but it does take away a little of the utility from it, since you’re essentially limited to rapidly charging 2 devices, at most, from USB.

    Still a solid item, just wanted to throw that in to save other people from digging through all the reviews to try and clarify that point.

  2. Having the vertical outlets is nice for working in places where spills or dust might be hazardous. I once saw a Major take out a TOC with a coffee spill into a power strip. They all got vertically strapped to table legs after that.
