Powramid™ Surge Protector

powramid-mainJust when you thought they couldn’t invent a surge protector in another shape. First came block-style surge suppressors, the kind that most of us have under our desks. Then came the round tabletop version for conference rooms. And believe it or not, there’s even one out there that looks like a squid. But up until now, there haven’t been any pyramids -at least not that I know of. But I found one! Meet the uniquely conical Powramid™, a 6-outlet surge protected PDU that gives you 360° power. Because it provides receptacles that face in all directions, it’s perfect for use on conference tables, or for any other situation in which you have a group of people who need to plug multiple devices into a central power source.

The Powramid’s™ design benefits don’t end with 360° power availability, though. It just so happens that it’s a lot easier to fit bulky plugs, adapters, and transformers into outlets that are configured like a pyramid. When you plug fat adapters into regular power strips or surge protectors that have their outlets placed side by side, you can run into a little problem: wasted outlets. Extra-wide adapters have a tendency to creep over the borders of the outlets that they’re plugged into and invade the space of neighboring receptacles, making them unusable for other devices. Call me crazy, but I think that if you pay for a certain number of outlets, you should be able to use them all.

The Powramid™ is crowned with a power switch that lights up when the unit is running, and allows you to switch the whole thing off when none of the devices plugged into it are being used. The switch is also covered with a removable plastic dome that prevents you from accidentally shutting the surge suppressor down while it’s in use.

  6. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Finding
    the time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t manage to
    get anything done.

  8. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but,
    I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog
    you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it
    grow over time.

  10. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
