    Need more outlets and charging ports for that dorm room?

    Meet the APC Wall Pivot-Plug Surge Protector. 

    It's perfect for the dorm room, or any room that need more outlets and more charging ports. The APC wall surge protector with USB charger ports offers you 4 outlets + two 3.4 Amp charging ports. A nice feature of this device are the rotating plugs, which you can turn outward to accept big transformer plugs.It also has an LED that let you know there's power in the line. It comes a 'Peace of mind $50,000 equipment protection policy' too. To install this you need to have a three-prong two plug outlet. You remove the one screw on the outlet cover and use that screw to secure thisdevice to the outlet. You turn two outlets into four and two charging ports + surge protection.  

    It was under $28 on Amazon on 8/13/19
