Pros: Lots of outlets, with four nicely-spaced ones for wall-wart power adapters. Long cord.
Cons: The plug on this surge protector is very poorly designed, so you need to be extra careful when unplugging it from the wall socket. The plug is only a half-inch thick, so it is difficult to grab with your hand. Much worse, however, the plug is very slim with the cord angled in such a way that your finger and thumb are only 1/8-inch away from the hot and ground prongs. While you are struggling to pull out the slim, slippery plug, it would be easy to touch the partially-inserted prongs and get a nasty shock.
Manufacturer Response:Thanks for your feedback on the TLP1208TEL. This surge protector features a flat space-saving right angle plug. If you are concerned with the safety of the product we would recommend reaching out to our Chicago-based Tech Support Team at 773-869-1234 (M-F 7AM-6PM Central). We do offer a variety of surge protectors that do not have flat plugs. For assistance finding a surge protector with a plug that fits your needs please reach out to our Chicago-based Presales Applications Team at 773-869-1773 (M-F 8AM-6PM Central) or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Low Profile, Plenty of Plug Orientations, & Price Is Right!
Pros: - Cord "catchers" are handy for routing cords - Low profile keeps it out of the way of my feet - Two keyholes on back for hanging on wall, if desired. - 3780 joules is a good deal of protection. - Places to hook cable into for more protection.
Cons: - I had no issues with this unit.
Other Thoughts: - Bought this because I am using my older unit to protect my older computer as I ramp it up to play older games and experiment with Linux and other alternatives to Windows 10. - I would recommend this product. Plenty of plugs and the right assortment of different orientations makes it easy.

Very satisfied with this unit and wanted to order another one but was informaed after I chatted with customer service that the "promo code" send in the email offering a discount price was only avail
Pros: The unit I received was very inexpesive considering how well made it appeared to be and had all of the features that might have been wanted in a power strip. Sorry I can't get a second one (or maybe more) at the reduced price.
Cons: None that I can determine at this time. Only if something goes wrong with the unit and it stops operating then I'll complain.
Other Thoughts: I would definitedly recommend this product, but should warn customers that if you think you might want more than one of them at the discount price, order them in a SINGLE order because the discount "promo code" you received from Newegg will only be valid once for a SINGLE ORDER from any single customer acount.

Great for travel or a small convenient charging station.
Pros: This unit has traveled with me on business trips for years. It was inexpensive. It has done its job well charging usb devices and ensuring my laptop is safe. When it's not on the road with me, it serves as a convenience usb charging surge protection for my guests. Never a hiccup. My 2600 AH iphone charges while I sleep every time. It only has about 1 amp usb charging power. combined for two outlets.
Cons: It does take up the entire wall socket but that's one reason why it stays plugged into the wall
