“Power strips are going to disappear, here is the invention that will soon replace them”

This device will soon replace power strips. Minimalist in appearance, it includes three USB ports and allows you to charge phones wirelessly.

A power strip is a device that consists of a cable with several power outlets arranged in a line and a switch, which allows to plug in several devices (a computer and a lamp, for example) à a single power source. They are widely used in both homes and offices.

But we must admit that these accessories are ugly. And the manufacturers have worked hard to achieve this. to replace them with prettier and less bulky objects. It was at Leroy Merlin that we were able to find this new generation power strip designed by Simon, also from Leroy Merlin. nestable on the web. First here is his photo:

It is a sort of white cube, much more minimalist (and aesthetic) than a traditional power strip. Thus, its first advantage is aesthetics. It includes three outlets, as well as three USB ports that can be used à charge cell phones. In addition, the smartphone can also be charged. in a simpler way: just place it on the cube, which has wireless charging. 

However, some specialists also highlight the weaknesses of this device. "Very practical that the cables come out on each sideé instead of being all arranged in the same place, one quips ironically. "I stick the multiple socket to the wall, hidden and I plug everything in, with this new base I would necessarily have to put it on a table, it would take up space", relates, in the same vein, another. Additionally, others believe that price is an important factor, as they assume that the cube will sell for much more than a traditional power strip.

In fact, these improved power strips can be purchased at home. from around 25 ' 30 euros in Leroy Merlin stores but also on online resellers like Amazon. “Power strips have evolved” from the simple adapters that we used à Plug in more devices in the same area and power outlet in one room up to 100 meters away. “offer many other benefits,” the manufacturer states on its website. "Indeed, they have gradually integrated into new protection and safety elements, as well as greater energy savings, ;#39;also adapting to other types of connections, such as USB ports, which are widely used on a daily basis currently and even starting to become available. éestablish the use of power strips for wireless charging", they add.
