AmazonBasics 6-Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip — $8, was $11

This 6-foot-long power cord comes with multiple outlets and surge protection. This means that no matter how much the voltage fluctuates or spikes, your plugged-in electronics will always be safe. There’s a built-in power switch as well making it easy to monitor all your devices attached to the power strip. You can also easily cut power to all your devices at once if you need to conserve energy. There’s also a surge protected LED indicator that lets you know when to replace it. Your LED indicator will light up when your devices are protected and when you see the light fade and go out, you’ll know it’s time to replace it.

The design isn’t bulky either. You can easily slide your power strip in tight corners or place it on an isolated area on your desk. The 6-foot power cord allows you to place your gadget in spots far away from a wall socket as well. If you’re still on the fence of purchasing this power strip, you’ll be happy to know that this gadget has over 22,000 ratings on Amazon, making it one of the most popular power strips currently available. It’s also lighter than most other power strips, weighing in below a pound so you can also easily carry your power strip around if you desire.

With multiple outlets, surge protection, and a compact design, it’ll be hard to find a better Prime Day power strip deal than this. Get ready for the holiday season now and plug all your Christmas lights into the AmazonBasics 6-Outlet Power Strip. Buy it now before stocks run out.
