          I use for charging batteries, laptops and you name it.

          For a frequent traveler, this COMPACT design is priceless! LOVE THIS.

          But don't expect a long cord out of this, that's not what its about!

              Comments about Targus Travel Power Outlets with Surge Protection:

              Plugging into 220V sockets will FRY this device. No fuse tripping, no warning.

              For a travel strip this is useless unless you are staying in North America or else plugging into a converter first.

              Given that most quality electronics now are able to use 100-240V inputs and all you need is a plug adapter this strip has very narrow application.

                Comments about Targus Travel Power Outlets with Surge Protection:

                First off, let me say that I have no idea how well it works as an actual surge protector. Hopefully it works as advertised, but as far as I know, I haven't been hit with a surge so I have no experience with its protective capabilities.

                That having been said, it is a PERFECT travel power strip. I have a client that flies me all over the United States shooting interviews and I love this thing. It has a flat plug to save space and the plug lights up so you can instantly tell if the outlet is hot. The plug plugs into itself at the end of the power strip and makes a really compact travel package. I was initially worried that the design would crimp the cable during travel, but the cable is flat rather than round and seems to want to plug into itself without crimping.

                The power cable is very short- less than a foot. I like that. I travel with an additional extension cord but it lets me choose how much cord I need rather than have the manufacturer arbitrarily choose a length. I've also found that separating the power strip from the extension cord gives me more flexibility when packing.

                The 4 outlets are widely spaced around the plug: 2 on one side, 1 on the other side and 1 on the end. You could plug 3 huge wall warts into it plus 1 smaller AC adapter or standard power cable.

                Anyway, I used to travel with a full-size strip surge protector in my bag taking up a ton of space- this little widget makes traveling for work a lot easier.

                  Small and easy to pack and carry. Placement of outlets on multiple sides allow for plugging in numerous transformers which often block adj outlets. No negative aspects.
