Socket Sense Expanding Power Strip

Here’s another clever solution to the problem of plugging large AC adapters into a power strip. To prevent the adapters from blocking other sockets like on a standard strip, the Socket Sense actually expands allowing it to accommodate a large adapter on every one. Brilliant! All the sockets are also angled at 45 degrees so that the Socket Sense doesn’t necessarily have to be expanded all the way, particularly for smaller adapters. And when you only have standard plugs to connect, you can collapse the strip down completely so that it takes up far less room. So far this is definitely the best solution I’ve seen for dealing with those annoying bricks.

You can get the Socket Sense from the IDEATIVE website for $39.99.
