The next few days are going to feel like the holidays! After that whirlwind of a Prime Day sale, we're unboxing loads of new presents — smart TVs, tablets, streaming devices. There's a lot to unpack! But it's going to be fun — nothing beats the joy of plugging in a new device and watching it light up — and nothing beats the disappointment of not having enough outlets to plug it in. Cue the Amazon sale.

In addition to protection from power surges, this surge protector also acts as an outlet extender and features five AC outlet splitter and four USB ports.

This surge protector has already raked in more than 23,000 five-star reviews. People love that it's compact and stays out of the way.

"This product has really cleaned up the look of my outlets, the design is so clever," shared one rave reviewer. "Great space-saver. I especially love that it has a usb c port built in to charge my newer devices, along with the older, more traditional usb a ports. The angled AC outlets on each side are a genius decision and the unit feels quite secure once inserted into your wall. Going to immediately buy another one for a different area of my apartment!"

These surge protectors can each power up eight devices simultaneously — it has five AC outlets and three USB ports.

Another well-received power strip, this one has a slim design that shoppers like and comes in a two-pack.

"I bought these to adhere to inconspicuous places on my side tables and under my cabinets (used command strips to adhere) to leave as charging or plug ins for various appliances for easy access," shared one happy shopper. Another satisfied shopper called it a practical necessity. "This came in handy for all the electronics this household uses. With limited outlets, this was perfect for everyone's cell phone chargers and gaming equipment and great to be moved around in the house," they wrote.

One rave reviewer says it's not an eyesore. "I needed more plugs in my bathroom, as it only has one outlet. My husband mounted it on the wall," she wrote. "It does not stand out…screaming, Hi, I’m a power strip that had to settle here because there weren't enough outlets! 😆"
