Here’s a great little travel gadget from Belkin. You always use a surge protector with your laptop at home, so you should use one when you travel. Most surge protector strips are too big to fit easily in your laptop bag, but the Mini Surge Protector with USB Charger fits in with room to spare. It has three standard power outlets and 2 USB power outlets – all surge protected. (The USB outlets are for power only; they cannot be used as a hub or for data transmission.) The power plug rotates 360 degrees, with 4 locking positions, so you can fit it on any outlet. It comes with 1 mini USB cable. It also comes with a lifetime product and $75,000 connected equipment warranties. You can purchase the Mini Surge Protector with USB Charger at Belkin for about $25 or at Amazon at a discount.
