Plug Power Dongle Frees Up Some Power Bar Space

By David Ponce

Bulky transformers are bad power bar neighbours. They’re bulky because physics dictates that they must be so, despite manufacturer’s best efforts to trim them down and shape them in ways that are more accommodating to other simpler transformer-less plugs. The Plug Power dongle you see above tries to alleviate the issue. It’s essentially a mini extension cord that lets you plug in your bulky transformer away from the main power bar. When not in use, you simply plug it into itself to make it compact and easy to transport.

It’s in the Quirky production pipeline and is expected to sell for $5. Yet another one of those essential road warrior accessories.
