The Power Block Provides Another Way To Hide Your Tech-Heavy Lifestyle

For the tech addicted, there’s really nothing better than adding a new toy or gadget to the collection. But like most addictions, there’s a downside. Every new device needs someplace to plug in or charge, and that mountain of adapters and powercords by the wall soon becomes quite an eyesore.

So instead of hiding that mess of cables under a pile of coats, you can use the the Power Block which is basically a power bar with a shield on one side. Once all of your adapters are plugged in you just push the Power Block against the wall, and the angular shield will keep the cords hidden from sight.

Apparently though, adding a shield to a power bar is such a difficult feat of engineering that the final product ends up costing you about $165 from Absolument Design. I think I’ll just stick with my pile of coats thank-you.

    I wouldn’t think it would be that hard to come up with a template you can print off and use to cut cardboard into a shape that can be folded into this. And that would only cost $0.
    The main difficulty would be that you’d have to account for different sizes of power cords, but I don’t think that would be that big of an issue.

    keeping cell phone chargers and stuff like that plugged in when not in use is a bad idea. they drain power even though they aren’t doing anything. badbadbad
