For better or worse, when many of us travel today, we bring along cell phones, cameras with rechargeable batteries, laptops, MP3 players, portable DVD players and more. These gadgets crave power and usually at the same time! When I travel, I’m usually unplugging lamps, clocks and other devices in the hotel room trying to make room to charge and power my tech. Often times it means sacrificing light in order to get my phone charged.
As I mentioned, Ted, one of my customers, said he recently received a tip from a fellow traveler that he never leaves home without a strip surge protector. Ding, ding, ding! What a great tip! Simple, not too bulky and certainly effective. I found one on Amazon that meets my criteria (pictured and linked); under one pound and at least four outlets.
