Power strips are extremely important for any home office or home theater. They allow you to manage power efficiently. However, most power strips aren't equivalent. Some of them allow you just to do the basics, while others allow you to do even more. We all know that if you leave your equipment plugged in, it will continue to consume power, even when it's switched off. iGo has come up with a solution to this problem.
