Crucifix power strip

"Power/Strip is a 12 outlet cruciform surge protector that easily accommodates oversize adapters while providing comprehensive protection from evil, power surges, and AC contamination." Designed by Alexander Pincus. Alas, it seems to be a proof of concept only at this time.

    1. The title of this post is utterly misleading. Disappointed.

      No worries, once you are done watching the power strip, at your power lunch, you can have a power nap.

  1. The thing is, this will sell like hotcakes should it actually hit the x-tian bookstores. “Is your power strip all powerful? Now it can be!”

    Wish I had thought of it.

    *pouts in corner*

    1. It’s not too late! Star of David power strips at stores by your local synagogue and you’ll be all set.

      1. Thanks for beating me to the punch. I was going to note that the strip is effective only against Xtian vamps, not Jewish, Islamic, or (nirvana forfend) Buddhist vamps. Hmm, a Buddhist vampire….

  2. Finally, a power strip form that reflects the natural facial expression of the outlet itself: a sudden onset of bewildered sadness.

    1. Actually, shouldn’t it be more like 1.5 days? The period from sunset on Friday to sunrise on Sunday is only about 36 hours.

      Just to be pedantic.

  3. Joking aside, this would actually be a useful device, as you can plug more wall-wart style devices into it, a category in which it seems half of the junk that I use falls into. I try to find surge protectors that put all of the plugs sideways for this reason, though they are harder to come by than the standard straight-down configuration.

    1. i thought the same thing. i could use an H shaped one even more since i have electronics i have extending into two directions.

  5. A strip only Judas could love. Having had to deal with wall-warts, a more practical design is two parallel rows of outlets each turned 90 degrees so a wall-wart will hang toward the edge rather than cover the next outlet. They’re available.

  6. If they are looking for a proof of concept I think they might try plugging more than one oversized item into it.

  7. Remember…THE ELECTRIC KOOLAID SURGE PROTECTING POWER OF GOD COMPELS YOU! THE ELECTRIC KOOLAID SURGE PROTECTING POWER OF GOD COMPELS YOU!

    And that’s that. All viruses running around the Internets are now CLEANSED!

    And that’s that. All viruses running around the Internets are now CLEANSED! You’re on your own for the pea soup stains.

  9. Ya I actually think this would be very practical. Funny looking, but fixes all the problems with power strip placement (though you can’t just shove this behind a desk or bookshelf).

  10. One fundamental flaw with this design, is that all the receptacles are oriented the same way. It would obviously be better if all the receptacles faced away from the center, so it could feed four large AC adapters on the ends without covering up other receptacles.

  11. The Power Squid is a better solution to the large adapter problem. Plus, it has the added advantage of being able to defend you if electronic Captain Nemo shows up.

    Personally, I just stopped using product that required so many fscking AC power adapters.
