I was looking for a (potentially portable) power strip that had both USB and AC outlets and wasn't flush against the wall. (This one even has USB C!) My main bedroom outlet was between my bedpost and my wall, which ended up damaging many of my charging cords, so I needed something that wouldn't force my cord to bend. After scouring Amazon for an hour, I opted for this affordable option. I like how there's a light that lets you know if the strip is overloaded and two separate buttons to turn off the USB and/or AC side. It's enough to charge all my devices plus my MacBook Pro and light enough to carry it on the road if I need to. Am definitely going to purchase another one soon!
