Seems I needed at least 6 outlets and 6 USB ports for just my side of the bed. I had cords running everywhere. Real eye sore and fire hazard. I bought this along with a retractable surge protector extension cord. I was able to use this for my lamp and clock, then I had extra outlets to plug in the extension cord. The extension cord goes under my bed to plug in the rest so I no longer see cords everywhere. Very happy.
