Please make sure that you are posting in the form of a question. Technology Today Advancements in technology have brought faster, higher definition products that are capable of processing large amounts of data but are also quite sensitive to the components that drive them. Too little power and these devices will not function at an optimum level, too much power and these devices can be damaged beyond repair.

A power strip also known as an extension blockpower boardpower barplug boardpivot plugtrailing gangtrailing socketplug bartrailer leadmulti-socketmulti-boxsuper plugmultiple socketmultiple outletpolysocket and by many other variations is a block of electrical sockets that attaches to the end of a flexible cable typically with a mains plug on the other endallowing multiple electrical devices to be powered from a single electrical socket. Power strips are often used when many electrical devices are in proximity, such as for audiovideocomputer systems, appliances, power toolsand lighting. Power strips often include a circuit breaker to interrupt the electric current in case of an overload or a short circuit. Some power strips provide protection against electrical power surges.
