Review: Echogear Rotating Plug Surge Protector
An organizational dream come true
For years, the organization of cords behind my TV has been the bane of my existence. Don’t get me wrong, it is a great problem to have. I have been very fortunate to own multiple game consoles in my life. But trying to organize the placement of plugs along a surge protector has always been a problem for me. Just look at the mess behind my TV –
When I was given the opportunity to check out Echogear’s rotating plug surge protector, I immediately jumped at the chance. This 8 plug protector has a lot going on, including 2160 J surge protection, lights to indicate if it is grounded and protected, an 8-foot cord, wall hanging slots, and hooks to help manage your cords. But that’s not the best part. The best part is the rotating plugs.
On this unit, 6 of the plugs can rotate 160 degrees. This may not be a big deal if you have standard plugs, but that’s not always the case. Plugs for TVs, antennas, and game consoles come in all shapes and sizes. It can become a Tetris game when you try to fit everything in. It’s not a problem at all with this surge protector. If you have any plugs that are large or have an unusual shape, then you can rotate a plug to either side of the protector in order to fit everything.
Besides the 6 rotating plugs, you also have 2 fixed outlets that can be used. In my life, I am usually plugging and unplugging my Nintendo Switch dock on a frequent basis. With the Echogear surge protector, I can save a side plug for my Switch, so I don’t need to worry about trying to untangle it from a bunch of cords. In the end, this is what the back of my TV looks like, and I couldn’t be happier –
It’s an amazing feeling being able to organize all of your living room electronics in a way that is safe and works with the different size cords. If you are in need of some organization, and in need of a safe and reliable surge protector, then look no further.
The Echogear rotating plug surge protector is available now for $29.99 on their website.
