Monster Outlets To Go Power Strip


Packable power strip

I travel to the developing world a lot and always carry several power adapters, but each only provides a single outlet. Using Monster’s mini-strip in tandem with an adapter, I get four outlets instead of one, useful for plugging in my laptop, Backberry, iPhone and/or iPod and charger for camera batteries. This compact power strip plugs into itself to maintain its minimal profile (6.25 x 2.25 x 1.8 inches, the cord is 12 inches fully extended) when not in use, so it easily fits into a laptop bag and is considerably smaller than a standard power strip. I have not been without it for more than two years, and it’s kept me off my knees hunting for power outlets on several continents.
