We had no idea how excited people out there get about cable management solutions. Seriously, it’s pretty crazy. We recently told our readers about an awesome device called the Sleek Socket, and they totally flipped out. As a matter of fact, thousands of BGR Deals readers swarmed to get their hands on this brilliant device. Power strips are popular on Amazon, but definitely not this popular. The Sleek Socket plugs into any standard wall outlet. Then, a single cable runs down to a power strip with four or more outlets. This way, you can eliminate all those cumbersome cables sticking out of your wall and hide them behind a piece of furniture. you can also do the same thing on your kitchen counter and hide the cable behind an appliance.
The Sleek Socket is awesome, but it’s not always perfect for every situation. The good news is that we managed to dig up another great solution called theOUTlet, and BGR Deals readers are definitely going to want to check it out.theOUTlet Basic - Permanent Outlet Extender, 4 Receptacles, Tamper Resistant, 15A, 125V Price:$39.99 Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
Amazon deal: More outlets, no power strip
This cool little gizmo comes in two different models that are both very affordable. TheOUTlet Basic includes four three-prong power outlets and as the name suggests, theOUTlet USB adds two USB power ports to the four standard three-prong power outlets on the base model. This way, you can charge your smartphones, tablets, eBook readers, and other gadgets.
Both models have the same brilliant design that you’ll wish you had in your home the whole time.
When it’s closed, theOUTlet has two power outlets. It looks just like any other three-prong outlet, but the plugs are turned sideways. Then, with a quick press of one button, the outlets pop open to expose another pair of plugs. That means you can plug in four different devices without a surge protector. And you can do it in the same space as a regular outlet that can only power two things. Or, in the case of theOUTlet USB, you’ll get six power connections in the space of two.
Installing theOUTlet is just as easy as installing any other duplex wall box. In fact, if you’re like me, the most difficult and time-consuming part might be finding the proper fuse to switch off before you start your installation. After that, it’s just a matter of disconnecting the old outlet and connecting theOUTlet in its place. That’s it!
Definitely check it out while both versions are $5 off.
