The problem with typical power strips is that the receptacles are stacked on top of each other, and large plugs often block other receptacles, making them unusable. This 5-outlet indoor/outdoor power hub from Ridgid is designed with ample space for large plugs, so none of the receptacles will be blocked. The hub illuminates when it has power, and the circuit breaker will trip if it is overloaded.

It is available at The Home Depot.
