    So if I plug my Jesus nightlight into this thing, would that make it a crucifix?

    Woo, Electric Jesus!

    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.

    Needs ground spike for outdoor use.

    Cruciform yes, not crucifix, not without a figure affixed.

    I too find this compelling

    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.

    This solves the problem of the power strip falling over on its side!

    It also helps with devices that draw current even when turned off, aka “energy vampires”.

    Needs holes at wrists and feet for mounting.

    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*

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

        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….

    Frankly, I find it shocking.

  13. sk8rboi69 says:

    I follow the cruciform.

  14. pxlpig says:

    Now an upside down 12 outlet cruciform surge protector, that I would buy!

    Jesus-H.-Christ-on-powerstrip! Will wonders never cease?

    You could sell it as “The power and the glory.”

    It’s not a crucifix, it’s a cross. A crucifix has the body on it.

    Jesus Christ, this thing is useful.

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

    tag line: Plug into God with the Cruciform Surge Protector.

    Great, I got here to late and all the good jokes have been raptured…

  25. Brainspore says:

    The problem is the dang thing takes three days to reset.

    • foxtails says:

      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.

  26. gastronaut says:

    Perfect! I need a powerstrip to plug my Jesusonic (http://www.jesusonic.com/) into.

    The power of Christ COMPELS you(r devices)!!!!!

    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.

    Now when I plug something I say “The Power of Christ compels you!” and behold, it works!

  31. foxtails says:

    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.

  32. Roy Trumbull says:

    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.

    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).

  34. Chocolatey Shatner says:

    That explains the lyrics of this old hymn. Truly there is wonder working power in the blood of the Lamb…

  35. RedShirt77 says:

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

    Would this disqualify my faith based agency from government funding?
