TOOLBOX: PowerSquid Outlet Multiplier

TOOLBOX: PowerSquid Outlet Multiplier

Power Squid-Inuse Most of us electronics obsessed folks know that the everyday power strip just doesn’t cut it. A typical 5-outlet strip might be able to accommodate two bulky power converters, so you end up needing three of them to connect your five devices. Definitely not a pretty picture. To solve this problem some brilliant person eliminated the actual strip and simply connected together five flexible outlets. Now your big square power converters can exist in peaceful harmony, all of them humming along in unison to the same lovely tune. [via] Link.

    Nice piece of hardware, but in the spirit of Make, why not use a few cheap male/female 110v plug set(s) and a short piece of 14/2 wire to solve the same problem?
