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.
