From the Manufacturer
Traveling TodayWhen traveling today for pleasure or business the first thing you want to do when you arrive is relax. However, this is hard to do if you travel with electronic devices such as MP3 players, cell phones, and laptops that require charging after a long trip. Finding enough outlets to power your devices is not an easy task. Most hotel rooms provide limited access to outlets. Moving furniture and unplugging devices is the last thing you want to do when you arrive at your destination.
Sure you can carry an ordinary power strip, however they are bulky, cumbersome items with thick dangling cords and boxy dimensions that make carrying almost impossible
Extra Outlets Wherever You Need ThemDesigned for Travel from the ground up, Monster Outlets to Go 4 was created by an award winning design team to provide a truly portable power strip that is easy to pack, and easy to carry. Exclusive Monster Features provide the convenience and ease that you need: Wide Spaced Outlets lets you plug in bulky power adapters without blocking other outlets. Monster's Flatwrap™ cord management system folds over the outlets allowing for compact clutter free storage. The FlatProfile™ plug design allows for fitting behind furniture in even the tightest of spaces. Safe Charging for up to 4 devices and prevents overloads with a resettable circuit breaker. With Monster Outlets to Go you are never without the extra outlets you need for all of your electronic devices.

The cord is short at 10 inches. When I've used this at home, with (I'm assuming) standardly placed electrical outlets, the unit dangles. See photo here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/moV2XE1ZLFB4FM/B000F9YN2M/ref=cm_ciu_images_pl_link
I use this mostly for camera battery chargers, which don't have cords of their own. It makes me a little nervous to have that weight just hanging there, but if the cord were any longer the unit would be less portable. That's the half-complaint.
The full complaint is this: The plug has a LED that shines when the unit is plugged in to a live outlet. During the day, that's no big deal, but at night that thing is BRIGHT. As I tend to charge batteries overnight, this thing can keep me awake if there's not convenient furniture to put in front of it. The whole issue would be prevented with two inches of electrical tape, but who thinks of electrical tape when on vacation?
Still, I'd recommend this to everyone. It served me well in a South African game reserve with the use of a voltage and outlet converter, and in Amsterdam's airport with just the outlet adapter.
Having said that, this is a nice compact power strip that is well designed and met my need so I decided to go for it. The cord folds around the strip for easy storage and it's easy to use.
I'm with the other reviewers who mention the blue light. It's bright in a dark room and is totaly unecessary. It doesn't serve any purpose other than to tell you the outlet has electricity. This is the second one of these I received, the first one arrived DOA. The funny thing is, the blue light on that one worked when plugged into the wall, but none of the outlets on the strip worked. Either a short or a faulty product. The vendor accepted my return even without the packaging, which I had thrown away before I tested the product, no questions asked!!
For the people that commented that this will not work in Europe, I did personally contact Monster Customer Service and the representative assured me that this will work in the 220V environment in Europe. You need to buy a
US to Europe power adapter such as this VCT - PLUG ADAPTER - CONVERTS GROUNDED USA PLUGS TO EUROPE PLUG-GERMAN SHUCKO PLUG (VP 11W) in order for it to work and your electronics must be made for the 220V environment as well. (Look on the back of your device or the power transformer, most modern ones say 110~220V and therefore can be used on US or European electrical systems.)
I will add a follow up review when I return from Europe in a month.
I returned from Europe a couple months ago and I must say this was the single best piece of technology accessory I had with me! European (and US for that matter) hotel rooms are notoriously short on electrical outlets and this came in handy so many times! I had a cell phone, an iPod and and iPad with me and this worked for all the devices wonderfully. I also have a small set of travel speakers that worked fine. For those of us who travel with a C-Pap machine, I plugged it into this and had no problems either. I will reiterate, check the back of your device or on the transformer for voltage compatibility. All my products clearly say 110~220V and worked fine on European voltage.
One caveat; note the orientation of the 3rd prong. A lot of 3-prong outlets I've tried have the 3rd prong on the right, so the cord comes out downward from the plug. If the plug is very low to the floor, then the cord must quickly do a 90 degree turn from downward to outward. There have been times where I couldn't plug in because the outlet was TOO LOW to the floor, and there wasn't room for such a maneuver. But I'm not an electrician, so I don't know if there is a convention for 3rd prong orientation. I'm staring at one right now where the 3rd prong is on the bottom, which this baby would have no problem with, even if it were at floor level.
