PowerSquid; $20-$85; www.powersquid.com
Jean Aw, Founder, Notcot
I don't know about you, but I've finally had it with the standard five-socket power strip. The bulky chargers for my PDA, laptop, Bluetooth headset, iPod, and digital camera hog at least two slots apiece, forcing me to clutter my office with multiple outlets.
But not anymore. The PowerSquid Power Multiplier has flexible rubber tentacles of different lengths so I can plug in all my gadgets--even those with unwieldy power sources--in one location. Each tentacle is three-pronged so devices lie flat, and the mouse-shaped power source easily tucks in the shelf next to my desk. My basic model has five sockets, but the top-of-the-line squid has six (plus surge protection). I'm so glad that staying connected no longer means having to rearrange my office.
