Luckily, smart power strips are now available, and they help improve energy-efficiency and prevent electronics from wasting too much power. Unlike traditional power strips, smart power strips are able to control power to each electrical outlet and some even automatically shut off household appliances after a certain period of inactivity. Aside from their saving energy, smart power strips are also integrated with additional features. Even with traditional power strips, the number of outlets is an important consideration. In addition, choose a power strip that has enough space for transformer plugs so you can maximise all the outlets. Carefully check if the outlet offers the same requirement for your appliance to avoid any mishaps.
I have 7 transformers that I need to plug in. I was thinking of getting an 8 outlet power strip from Belkin. I think it was rated at joules. What power rating power strip should I get??
