Gets Rid of Wall-Warts - Tributaries Power Strip

T12-power-strip.jpg

Do you have unsightly wall-warts? I didn't even know I had this problem until I got the new T12 Power strip which replaces those bulky AC plugs, also known as wall-warts. Who knew?

This serious power strip offers great flexibility, as eight of the 12 plugs can be rotated up to 90 degrees. Handy (though Gizmodo calls it overkill) in one convenient package, the T12 offers a highly effective "4320 joules of surge suppression" and noise filtering for AC power, and signal-line protection for telecomm (RJ-11), network (RJ-45), and cable, antenna, and satellite (F-connector) signals.

Every bit as important, the Tributaries T12 delivers high-level protection from surge, overvoltage, and powerline noise or electromagnetic interference. Listen to this: "Surge protection is employed across all three legs of the AC circuit, with voltage-spike protection to 6 kilovolts and peak current-spike handling up to 192 kiloamps. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) noise filtering applies up to 58dB of power-cleaning suppression over a range from 150kHz to 100MHz." I feel safer just reading that.

As intimidating as this big boy may look, it's still consumer-friendly, incorporating a pair of LEDs indicating the status of its operation. The blue “Grounded” LED will illuminate when the electrical system is properly grounded; the red “Protected” LED, when lit, shows the AC surge protection is operating properly. Additionally, the T12 is rated for heavy duty use at 15 amps for up to 1875 watts of load, so perfect for those home theatre set ups.

MSRP is $120..
