Important device in this globalized world – 5-Outlet Electric AC Power Bar Strip Splitter with Switch (250V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
-Nice universal sockets -Independent switches for every socket allow you to turn individual device on/off -fair space between the sockets
Cons:
-Universal sockets not that universal (It can't fit new models of brazilian power plugs, for example). But still will do the job for 95% of the plugs -Its external plug can only be in the australian standard, which demands another individual adapter
Other:
That's what I was looking for. Nowadays we deal with several types of plugs, specially when you are buying home appliances, electronics and gadgets from all the world. And nowadays it's becoming more and more difficult to find even regular american standard power bars here in Brazil, we can only find the new national standard, which is awful and useless.
Bottomline:
Just buy it. Despite of being too pricey, it's worth to be able to connect any gadget you have bought anywhere of the world, without worrying about where to find adaptors for that. Unfortunately it could be include more standards compatibilities, it would just make it useful than it already is.
