I thought this would be a great idea for charging multiple gadgets while traveling. However, it has a major shortcoming. (Well, actually, several.) The biggest shortcoming is that the plug does not swivel. If you plug it into the top outlet, you block the bottom one. Sometimes the bottom outlet is on a switch, or has the clock plugged in. A second is that it sticks quite far out from the wall. If you have to move the night stand to plug it in, then you have to move it pretty far, and the night stand sits away from the wall for your entire stay. The third is that you have to reach behind the furniture to plug and unplug USB cables. Instead of this product, I am now using Outlets To Go Power Strip with USB - Black
, which is also available under Monster MP OTG400 BK Outlets To Go 4 Outlet Travel Power Strip (Black)
. Although the other product has a short cable, does not stand flat on the furniture and only has one USB port, it is much more versatile than this one.
