I do not have to continue to rearrange my plugs, hopelessly trying to make them all fit in my power strip. This pivoting power strip holds large adapters in every outlet. It has an adjustable form that bends and twists in multiple configurations. Comes with 110V power and surge protection up to 672 joules.

I purchased this outlet recently and love it. It has helped with power outages because of the surge protector. It has come in handy for all my appliances, computer, printer, tv, cell phone, ipod's, etc. I plan on ordering more in the future. It has become very practical and a necessity. It has also come in handy for holiday plugin items like tree lights, candles in windows, etc.

I no longer need extension cords or 3-prong plugs you have to add on. Gone also are all those nasty cords that show through furniture or hang in open space. And gone are those rigid surge protectors that many times didn't lay flat or fit where you needed them and that had cords that were too short. It seems so simple, but, yet took so long.

It seems like every other device these days plugs in with one of those big old AC adapters which try to take up all the space on your power strip. So some power strips started placing the outlets further apart or had a couple facing sideways but it seems like we always ended up with more adapters than spaces where they would fit. This Quirky Pivot Power outlet is a great solution. The strip is flexible so you can turn it every which way. We used this one under our kitchen desk. We charge our phones and other devices on top of the desk and so we end up with a lot of these adapters. We installed a small shelf under the back of the desk against the wall, about 6 inches beneath the desktop. We drilled a hole in the top of the desk to run the cords to the top. We placed this power outlet on the little shelf under the desk and turned the outlets so all the adapters fit in. (The power outlet is just above the desktop.)

We also plugged a couple of USB adapters 4 Port 2.1 Amp USB Wall Chargers into the Quirky Power Strip. Then we plugged the charging cords into the adapters and ran them up through the hole in the desk with. We put one of the Quirky Cordies Desktop Cord Clips and Anchor - Charcoal on top of the desk to hold all the charging cords. The desk looks so much neater now and we don't have to look at all the cords and chargers. I'm thinking about getting another one of these power strips to wind around the back of a planter in the family room where we have things plugged in. I think it will look a whole lot neater.

Just the device for a small space as it can be curled round a chair leg or woven round other furniture, rather than a straight extension cable.

Good 1 Nov 2011
By Daniel G. Lebryk - Published on Amazon.com
This outlet strip has to go down to the "why the heck didn't somebody make one of these before" category. The strip is simple and effective. The old solution was to space the outlets farther apart to accommodate wall warts.

This is sort of your normal every day outlet strip with six outlets. There is a nice white on off button beside the power cord. When turned on, the area around the button glows blue. The electrical cord is about six feet long and heavy duty. The electrical plug is one of those round flat plugs that is canted about 45 degrees, so when plugged in the wall the wire is on an angle pointing up the wall (no idea why the heck they do that, its annoying). The whole thing has a good heft to it. That's the normal every day part.

The cool part, this thing swivels. Each outlet has a rotator around it. There's one good thing, you can circle the wagons and have it wrap around a table leg. But that's not really the reason for the rotating (I've never needed to wrap my outlet strip around a table leg). The reason for the rotator is wall warts, those nasty AC adapters that take up two or three outlets on a power strip. With this little strip, it is possible to plug in six multi-outlet eating wall warts. Simply plug one wall wart in, and twist until it is out of the way of the adjacent outlet. Keep doing that for all the wall warts.

There is a limit for some wall warts. There are those big honking ones that actually take up three outlets, those really wide ones. Those can be twisted to only cover two outlets. Still not a bad deal.

The construction is decent. The plastic appears to be sturdy. 670 Joule surge protection is not massive, but still not bad. It does not have a UL approval. There is an ETL certification that apparently tests products to the UL standards. The product is stamped with 15A 110V AC capacity.

Overall, a good product that solves the problem of what to do with a zillion wall warts.

Quirky is a sort of social networking product development company. I found this outlet strip through an article in Engadget over a year ago. I preordered the outlet then, figuring it would arrive soon (the Quirky site said it was already going to the production phase). Well it took almost a year for them to ship these. I own three of them. I like the design and the functionality. If you like to watch products go from a rough idea sketch to a real live shipping product and want to influence that development, Quirky is a fun place. I have absolutely no financial interest in Quirky, nor do I work there. It's simply an interesting social networking experiment.

Ingenious Design; Bad "Connection" 16 Jan 2013
By Jerry Angert - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I now own three Quirky outlets; they all work well and really do accommodate those nasty AC "bricks". But it really comes up short where it counts the most--at the wall. Having a flat-head, right-angle plug connection will not go into the outlet if there is another plug above or below. It should have a straight-in plug. Better yet, maybe Mr. Zien could design rotating prongs that would work on a right-angled plug. That's worth five stars.

love all but the light 17 April 2012
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
I use this under my bed for my adjustable frame, air mattress, nighttable lamps, etc. All fit, no wasted sockets.

But it has a blue light signaling it's on that is as bright as any night light. First night it was more or less near the edge of the bed and the light was so strong I had to get up and shove it further under the bed. Second night I was so annoyed with the light I got some duct tape and had to cover it up.

I'd have given it 5 stars if that light wasn't so bright or if I wasn't using it in my bedroom.

Quirky Pivot Power 6 Outlet Flexible Surge Protector Power Strip 27 July 2013
By Marilyn Collins - Published on Amazon.com

One worked fine and the other was defective. Sparks was coming out when I put something in the socket. Plus I had to pay for shipping to return the defective product. Wasn't to happy about that. When a product is defective the company that sells it needs to pay for shipping.

Fire Hazard 12 May 2014
By Smweave 3 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
As soon as I plugged it in and turned it on, I heard a loud pop, followed by a flash around the power button. Soon after I noticed a very stong burning smell coming from the power strip. I immediately unplugged the unit. I'm not sure if it caused any damage to my outlet or electronics. Will be returning ASAP. I tried looking for a customer service number or email for Quirky to inform them of the hazard, but coun't find any contact info on the product packaging or website. Was very suprised since other reviews seemed good.
