My friends over at Holsem sent me their new 8 plug power strip to review. Now the timing could not have come at a better time for me, since some of mine where at the end of their life span.

In the package they also send you not one but 4 double A battery’s. Which cam in handy since my kiddos hallway night light went out the day before.
The cord is a good 6 feet long and plenty thick enough that you won’t need to worry about it getting snagged or cut on accident. The device is white in color and so is the cord. It won’t stand out much if you have white walls. The Holsem power bar also has two USB charging plugs. They are 5v =2.4A style ports. The plug also has to plug that set away from the rest so you can plug in those bulky plugs that get in the way of the others.
Now I only used it to plug in my pc on for now. I did how ever test the USB plugs and they work well. You can see how I have mine setting on the floor with just my PC plugged in. You how ever could hang it from the wall or plug multiple things in. Which ever you chose please make sure you don’t go over the rated power limit.
The Holsem power strip is a nice color and design. This could be used in any home and for the price you cant go wrong. You get 8 plugs plus two USB plugs. Give you any option that you could need in this day and age. Like most power bars you get the option to hang it or just lay it on the ground what ever your choice is this bar should work for you. Just remember to never over load you bar or it will get hot and fail at some point.
