Everything that had no home!
3rd May 2014
Are your precious electricals lacking in energy?
Mine usually are, totally starved and waiting hopefully in line for the next available socket. Then the mobile, tablet and Bluetooth joined the queue.
So I hunted for Something which would relieve the feeding-time at the zoo, sick of finding that every device was about to expire.
This neat power table hides away under a cupboard, safe and not a trap for unwary feet or curious kittens. The sockets have relieved the queue, and their design makes it easier to fit in those bulky transformer type plugs that like to take up two spaces. The usb sockets have solved the mini-problem, as they can take hubs (greedy) but best of all, the panel can be pulled out smoothly, no scratching floor, and then shoved away out of sight, or even mounted inside a cupboard if you are truly organised.
My favourite feature is that I no longer have to struggle to unplug or plug anything in - literally, as this sits flat on the floor, and it is soooo easy to push plugs home properly now! Removing the little beasts is easier too, just brace myself and pull, holding socket panel flat on the floor with my feet(truthfully). The usb cables sockets can be located by touch easily, as they sit neatly in the centre, and no tangled mess of cables, as the very design means that they generally spread out in spider shape, which also makes the panel very stable and much easier to locate the correct plug when needed.
I am one very happy person, my various gadgets are now able to find a space at the trough and I look at my old 'tower' versions with horror, wishing I had found these panels years ago. The lifetime warranty, well, The make is unequalled, the quality of the product, even the packaging, just make you know that it is going to be there for as long as it is needed, reassuringly safe and (relatively) tangle free, just getting on and helping with our tangled cabley homes.
To sum it up - BRILLIANT buy and whow, what value!
