Seems good, but not quite as expected
on July 7, 2012
It gives 3 outlets out of one, and they are fairly well spaced. If you plan to use it for multiple cell-phone chargers or big plugs like that, this may not be big enough. The outlets are not too tight, so it's not really hard to plug things in it. It says it's heavy-duty and it tolerates up to 15 amps, which is kind of standard. Nevertheless, 15 amps is not that much, so it will really only hold up to 3 devices, so I wouldn't recommend stacking it or putting other stuff on it to get more outlets through it. If you use it on a kitchen, for instance, a microwave oven at full power, a decent blender at full power and a coffee maker brewing all at the same time is already a bit too much for this thing. Then again, it would be too much for a lot of home wires too. Also, the color really is extremely different from what you see on amazon (i.e.: not white/ivory at all)! It's so dark it's almost brown!! I'm posting pictures in an attempt to make this color problem more visible (I'm not sure it's any better...).
