PowerSquid Calamari Edition: Too Neat to Pass Up Beth Snyder July 3, 2012 It might look like just a power strip with a different design, but it’s so much more. Not to mention having a silly name and a neat design. Because while we all need somewhere to plug all of our stuff in, no one said it had to be boring. I’m in enough of a mood today that I can easily see myself getting several of these, and quite possibly naming them, to make my own little squid family. See…now I want calamari, and the one place in town that used to make it well discontinued it because apparently I am the only one who appreciates the tentacles. Anyway. On to the PowerSquid, which is in no way edible. It features 2160 Joules of surge protection and a 15 Amp breaker switch, and even comes with a $75,000 US equipment warranty in addition to the lifetime warranty on the PowerSquid itself. You get the standard six outlets, but each one is mounted on its own “arm”, allowing you to plug in even the bulkiest of power supplies without blocking access to the next outlet. Two of the outlets light up, in case finding power in the dark is an issue for you. In addition to the qualities you can find in your garden-variety power strip, this one provides protection for your cable and DSL lines, and also employs premium power filters in case your house, like mine, has dirty power. Its plug is a 360-degree swiveling flat style and has a six-foot cord, which allows you to plug it in regardless of whether your outlet is behind your desk or out in the open. If you don’t want it lying around, it also features mounting slots (just use your own screws or nails). All of this power goodness can be yours for $60.00 US, and it’s available now. You know what just occurred to me? Squid have eight arms. Product name fail. But I still want one. Source: Technabob Share This With The World!
