I live in a very old home, over 110 years old with limited electrical outlets. I literally have heavy duty extension cords stapled around the bottom of the walls mostly masked by wood molding with surge protectors sticking out behind furniture.
The problem with this is, as you know almost all plugs are different sizes and on a surge protector with 6 outlets you may only be able to use 4 or 5 depending on how much space the plugs take.
Well ACCELL has solved that problem with the Power Genius Rotating 6-Outlet Surge Protector. The PowerGenius rotates to the left, right and straight up. Allowing you to use all of your outlets regardless of the size of the plug. The only issue I had was with really large plugs used on my train sets. But these things are literally 5 inches long and 4 inches wide. But for everything else they worked perfectly. Check out my setup below. It’s a bit messy but it’s hidden behind some furniture.
The surge protector works great. I haven’t had any power outages so I haven’t been able to test that functionality of tit. However, all my items are now plugged in. In the spot pictured above, I had two six outlet surge protectors, with 4 devices plugged into each. With the PowerGenius I have all those same devices connected. Two connected to the USB ports,
The ACCELL PowerGenius will save you money and space, I actually need to buy at least 3 more.
Amazon has the PowerGenius 6-Outlet Surge protector for $24.99 The 4 port version is also available for $23.90.
