For some reason companies/inventors keep tweaking and tuning the boring old power strip surge protector. I guess there must be a market for this type of thing. The Powramid Surge Protector seems to make sense. The Powramid is compact but still manages to have large spacing between outlets. This is nice when you have to plug in the larger sized wall warts or transformers. The Powramid comes in black and white for around $25.
