When my house was built in 1954, the builder never dreamed that anyone could have 20 things that need to be powered in just the living room! If it weren’t for surge protectors, I’d be like Ralphie’s dad in A Christmas Story – constantly unplugging something so I could plug in something else. ThinkGeek has an adapter that converts a single wall outlet into two AC outlets and two USB outlets. The Pivot Power Mini Wall Plug works well at home, and it folds up so you can throw it into your gear bag for travel. The Pivot Power Mini is $24.99.
