- Better Organization
Due to the flexible Pivot power, you have better access to each of the outlets. With long extension cords many people struggle to reach the outlets which are furthest back. When you place long extension cords flush against the wall they tend to be placed behind the piece of furniture such as a television stand or a desk.
This means that you cannot access them without trying to squeeze your way behind that piece of furniture and align the plug just right with the outlet. Instead of dealing with that hassle you can curve the Pivot power around something such as a corner, a furniture foot, or a table stand and reach each of the outlets easily every time.
How It Works
This unique power strip works by allowing flexibility that other extension cords cannot. With this power cord you have for specific outlets which create a C-shaped. Said C-shape can be altered in any direction. You can swivel or pivot one of the plugs to the opposite side or simply curve everything ever so slightly.
In doing so you allow room in between each outlet for bulkier things to plug and sit. Bulkier items Such as a telephone plug, internet router plug, or any other charging device for electronics can fit perfectly side-by-side without taking up too much room or accidentally covering even partially another outlet. This allows you to use every outlet available to you and save space. Instead of trying to keep a straight power strip under your desk you can curl this power strip around a desk leg or table leg.
- The Pivot Power Flexible Strip
The Pivot Power flexible power strip looks almost exactly the same as this one. With an almost in discernible difference between the two, the biggest difference is that Pivot power flexible power strip has six outlets into which your devices can fit rather than four. Additionally this unit has a flat plug so that when you plug it in it is flush with the wall. This saves space.
When plugged into an outlet the power cord is situated at an angle so that the location where the power cord and the plug meet does not prevent other items from using the second outlet. This is particularly beneficial for people who do not have outlets to spare.
How it's Different from Competitors
Compared to regular extension cords, this one is much better. The other option is a generic extension cord. Generic extension cords come in a variety of lengths designed to fit multiple spaces. Some power strips have three extra outlets while others are heavy duty and come with up to nine extra outlets.
The problem with these is that some of the outlets are designed so that they are concave and that means only certain things will fit down into the outlet. Large electronics such as computer battery chargers or phones have bulky battery sections attached to the plug so they won't fit. In certain places where they do fit on a flat power strip or extension cord, they are so large that without the ability to pivot. These large items and up taking one or two full outlet spaces.
