I travel frequently, and I've been long looking for a product that:
- Compact and easily to fit in my laptop bag
- Has at least a couple (ideally 3-4) of USB ports with at least one that is ipad compatible (2.1 amp) so I can charge my ipad, iphone, and use a MiFi at the same time.
- An outlet passthru so I can use it on airplanes and the Amtrak Surfliner which only has one outlet per pair of seats

This comes much closer to fitting the bill that anything else I've seen:
- It's much smaller than I imagined from the picture. It's really quite compact. I previous bought a New - Belkin 3-Outlets Surge Suppressor with USB Charging - R35457, and was surprised how large it is. The Belkin is too large to use on the Amtrak Surfliner with the back of seat tray open. This is tiny in comparison and should fit with no problem.
- This has two 2.1 amp outlets. It charges my Ipad 2 and a mifi at the same time with no problems. I can plug my iphone into my laptop which is connected to one of the 110v outlets on the MediaBridge to charge all three.
- I didn't need 3 110v outlets. I'd rather trade that for another USB or an even smaller device. But it may prove helpful if a seatmate wants an outlet as well.
- The foldable 110v plug is a bonus for putting this in my bag. It kinda feels like these might break off if not folded carefully, but based on having this for 30 minutes so far, it's working well.
- This device is very lightweight--so much so that it feels flimsy/plasticy in comparison the Apple Ipad adapter which feels very solid. How it feels isn't a problem though if it holds up.

The USB ports were not working in the original device that was shipped to me. I received an email from Mediabridge asking for feedback about my purchase. I replied to the email and informed them that the USB ports were not working and they sent me a fully functional replacement product without any hassle. I didn't even need to waste time shipping the faulty surge protector back to them.

I am completely satisfied with the fully functional replacement that I received. The 3 prongs that plug into a power outlet can fold in for easier storage and they pop back out relatively easily. I can charge my Kindle Fire and my cell phone at the same time. This means that I don't need to travel with both AC adapters. Additionally, I have the benefit of surge protection in the 3 power outlets so I can protect my laptop while I'm traveling.

Mediabridge loves to send emails asking us to review products so, out of guilt, I'll do so :)

I like this surge protector, especially the 2A USB charger. I had a Belkin before this, but I believe the output was only .5A per port, which made charging things like my Kindle Fire a marathon rather than a sprint. With this device, my newer devices charge much more quickly. The additional AC outlets are also nice, though they won't necessarily accommodate the thicker AC adapters, since they are to the sides and only have a small amount of clearance with the wall.

The reason I dinged the adapter by one star is the lack of ability to re-orient the device. Because the three-pronged adapter is only oriented in one direction, the USB ports must always remain at the top. The problem with this is that as you plug in more devices and USB cables, the adapter tends to get a bit top-heavy and risks falling out of the wall socket. The advantage to the Belkin was that it allowed me to re-orient the plug in any of four directions (two vertical, two horizontal) to give me the maximum flexibility for the adapter. (I found that if it hanged down instead of up, it was easier to keep the plug from falling out of the wall.)

All in all, it's a solid product but it does run the risk of falling out of the socket if you have too many plugs and/or USB cords attached.

Mediabridge may be the only company that was actually looking to improve a standard, travel capable surge protector. It's the only one I've used that combines the features below, ALL of which I find very useful:
-TWO USB ports: I typically have more than one device I'd like to charge at once, and other travel surge protectors could only give me one port. This means that I would have to check periodically to see if device A was charged, then switch to device B--no fun when I'm looking to juice up my phone and kindle while I'm packing out of a hotel room on my way to the airport
-2.1A USB ports: speeds up charging
-Collapsible plug: I don't worry about prongs getting bent in my bag as luggage gets tossed about
-Outlets do not interfere with each other: The outlets point away from each other, letting me plug in larger (computer) power bricks. I've also used the fact that there are 3 of them to convince airport plug hoarders to share

Room for improvement (I guess in case mediabridge is reading this?):
-It would be nice if the USB ports could be timed to avoid vampire drain by already topped-off electronics. But this is a minor quibble at best

Personal preference:
-It's set up for 3-prong US/Canadian outlets. If you want to use it more internationally you'll need adaptors. Of course, if they had built those in it would be more bulky for most of my trips, so I like this choice.
