How many power strips do you have at home? If you’re like me, then you have one too many. Then again, if you think about it, you can never have enough power strips if you have a plethora of gadgets at home. It is also a good idea to have a portable power strip that you can take with you when you go hang out at your favorite coffee shop. Trust me – the “neighbors” will love you for it when there is only one power outlet nearby.
There is, of course, the issue of power strips getting wet for one reason or another. Even if you’re not a klutz, one can’t help accidents from happening at times. That glass of water (or whatever beverage you normally drink) can always tip over, getting everything around it wet. Parties are a pain in the neck in this regard as well. And well, if you have a power strip with you at the cafe, the chances of spilling drinks might just be higher.
Truth be told, there are already many issues facing power strips – especially if you have them all over the place. If you have kids, you want the power strip to be fail proof so that the kids won’t accidentally stick their fingers in the sockets. There’s overheating. There’s the issue of power surges.
Here’s a gadget that can take care of all these worries – the Waterproof Power Strip from Wet Circuits. The name says it all, really. Many power strips out there have mechanisms that will protect you from common issues like children, overheating, power surges. With this new power strip, though, you can also rest assured that if you spill a glass or two of liquid, the strip will remain safe for use.
How does it work? Say you accidentally knock over that mug of coffee and spill its contents all over the floor – and the power strip. What happens then is that the power strip minimizes the flow of electricity. The benefits of this action are two-fold.
One, whatever is plugged in continues to work. Two, you are protected from the painful – and harmful, of course – effects of being electrocuted.
The Wet Circuits Waterproof Power Strip is perfect not only for indoor use but also for outdoors. Slight rain and snow will not be a problem because the strip is designed to work under these conditions! Now just don’t push your luck and use it underwater, too!
