If you are like me, there are NEVER enough electrical outlets in a room IN THE RIGHT PLACE! SO I resort to surge protector strips and even the odd outlet "expander" (not sure what the right term this is but it's something you plug into one outlet that allows more than one plug to fit...). But are these safe? Can your circuitry handle them? Check out this article for reviews of five differnt kinds of plug-oin adpators that not only are safe but also save you energy ... AND which allow you to plug in all those television (or computer or...) preipherals in one wall socket!
