Power strips are commonly used to distribute a power input to multiple outlets, i.e., jacks, sockets, or female connectors. Power strips enable multiple electrical appliances and equipment to draw power from a single source such as a wall outlet. Power strips are useful when there are not enough built-in power outlets nearby to support all of the devices and equipment that need power. For example, power strips are commonly used in households to supply power to items such as televisions, stereos, compact disk (CD) players, lights, lamps, cable boxes, computers, computer monitors, computer printers, alarm clocks, sweepers, and other various types of household items. A typical power strip has an elongated housing with multiple receptacles uniformly disposed in a single row along a top surface of the strip. Each receptacle is configured to receive an electrical plug of an appliance or equipment. The inside of the power strip housing may further include a surge protection circuitry and/or other circuit breaking devices. An extension cable extends from inside the casing to for example a plug adapted to connect to the wall outlet for supply of electricity from the wall outlet to the power strip or the parts or elements mounted therein. Hot contact and neutral contact and/or ground contact are provided on the casing for each of the outlets to receive a plug therein. Optionally, each outlet in the power strip may include a third female contact receptacle which is electrically connected to the ground line of the power cable, the third female contact receptacle being disposed within the interior cavity and accessed through an associated opening formed in the top of the casing. In addition to the receptacles on the top surface, an ON/OFF power switch and LED indicators for power and surge protection may also be found.
