Have you tried finding a power strip (opens in new tab) or surge protector in a brick-and-mortar store lately? The choices are slim and expensive, and they're outdated too. One of the main ways people charge electronics these days is with a USB cable, but good luck finding a power strip in-store that has a USB port on it. On the other hand, Amazon has a good selection available from various manufacturers, though most aren't cheap. Today however, AUKEY's USB Power Strip Surge Protector (opens in new tab) is on sale for just $23.55 when you enter promo code 4JKEH4A8 during checkout. The code saves you nearly $15 off its regular cost there and is valid on both the Black and White models.
This surge-protecting power strip is equipped with eight AC outlets and two USB ports, giving you the ability to power up to ten devices simultaneously. The two USB charging ports can charge at up to 2.4A together while safety features keep your devices guarded against damaging power surges and spikes, overheating, and overcharging. AUKEY includes a 24-month warranty with its purchase.
