Belkin Power Strip and USB Ports Wall Plate

June 11, 2014

Belkin SurgePlus 6-Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector with Dual USB PortsLoyal readers know I’m a big fan of wall plates that offer extra outlets and USB ports. Each time I look at the products offered, I find one I like even better.

The Belkin SurgePlus 6-Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector with Dual USB Ports shown at right delivers a lot of bang for a great price. Let’s first talk about the install. You simply unscrew the plastic wall plate currently in place. Plug in the SurgePlus and screw in the middle screw. It should be installed in less than a minute. For those who don’t want to mess with the screws, you can just plug it in.

It is a total of 2.5 inches thick, but remember that size includes the plugs sticking out the back. Realistically it will stick out of your wall about 1.5 inches. Instead of the two AC outlets you typically have, you’ll now have six AC outlets that are protected from electrical surges. On the top are two 2.1 amp USB ports for charging smartphones, tablets and other electronic doodads.

You certainly don’t need to replace every outlet in your home or business, but I think you’ll find it quite useful to install a few of these in strategic locations. If you charge your smartphone or tablet while in the office, where is the most convenient place to have the SurgePlus to make the charging task more convenient. At night, where do you charge your devices? That’s another perfect location for a SurgePlus. I’ve got a couple of them on order for myself and I have a feeling I’ll get some more in the near future.
