It has happened once again. You and a bunch of your friends have gone on a trip together to “get away from it all” and have found that you are stuck with only one laptop that doesn’t have enough USB ports. It almost seems funny how dependent we are on our smartphones, tablets, and MP3 players, but you can watch a fun trip turn ugly if geeks don’t have their gear charged. We are capable of going without for an hour or so, but much past that we start to get twitchy.
Were it not for items like the USB Power Strip, there would likely be some quarreling over who gets port priority during every group venture. This strip can charge up four devices simultaneously, and will only cost you about $10. As it is quite small, it will easily fit into any travel bag. If you have this handy, you may end up being the hero that saved the entire vacation. Or something like that.
