We've come across all manner of uniquely-designed power strips but not all of them are perfect. Sometimes it's hard to justify the extra cost associated with power strip, but then again we never have enough of them. Usually one power strip gets plugged into another one and they generate a lot of cables that are usually entangled. Thankfully for the most part, these power strips remain hidden behind furniture. But there must be better ways of dealing with that situation? Read on to find out more about five great power strips that we found.

1. Socket Sense Adjustable Power Strip
The Socket Sense enables you to adjust the amount of space for each socket, making sure that you will be able to use all of them correctly. This makes perfect sense once you think about it.

2. Swivel Socket
Swivel Socket transforms your usual 2 outlets into 6. It also lets you get 90 degree swivel action for each 3-plug part. It maximizes the amount of wall sockets, but doesn't ensure that you can use all of them. Still, it's cheap and works well.

3. Tributaries T12 Power Strip
Some say that the T12 is a bit of overkill, but then again, we never seem to run out of things that need to be plugged in. It features a total of 12 outlets, including 8 that rotate. That should be enough to power all of your needs, perfect for a home theater room or home office.

4. Rotating Power Strip
This power strip has rotating power sockets, which make it perfect for some places that need a lot of power. The stick-like design makes it also great to stash standing up or on the floor.

5. Philips Rotating Outlet
This nice and simple outlet from Philips has rotating sockets, making it easy to use all of them. Each one of the outlets is rotating, making it great to use.
