There are still a few months before the ad releases begin ramping up for the beginning fo the Christmas shopping season But we will begin posting the items available at a big discount here as soon as we learn they will be on sale for either Black Friday or Cyber Monday 2018. There should be plenty of big savings on power strips at the large electronics stores and websites like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and more. And we will do our very best to make sure there are options with long cards, USB ports, some perfect for computers and with the right number of outlets that you need.


If you’re looking to save some energy, grab a smart power strip! These new power strips have an outlet or two that always draws power (we have our cable box and wifi router plugged into them) and the rest of the outlets only pull power when you turn the device on, preventing”vampire energy,” or the continual pull of power by devices that are turned off but not unplugged. There are a few different ways the strip shuts down power – some have a remote, others use motion sensors or other technology. The smart power strip is fantastic behind your entertainment system or other places where you may not be able to unplug devices easily. Smart power strips could help you reduce your household enery consumption by about 5 to 10 percent.

There are more different surge protectors than ever before. Whether you need a standard six foot, seven outlet power strip for your computer or television entertainment system, or a wall mount surge protector with swivel outlets, or battery backup, you will be able to find it in stores or online over Thanksgiving weekend.
