Most Popular Portable Power Strip: Belkin SurgePlus 3-Outlet

Portable power strips keep you working when outlets are scarce, and keep your phone charged while you wait at the airport or work at the library. Last week we asked you for your picks. Then we rounded up the five best portable power strips. Now we’re back to crown your favorite.

Most Popular Portable Power Strip: Belkin SurgePlus 3-Outlet

Far and away the Belkin SurgePlus 3-Outlet Mini Travel Swivel Charger and Surge Protector took the top spot, pulling in over 65% of the votes cast. That’s a huge margin, despite some of the issues some of you shared about it in the discussions and nomination thread. It’s sturdy construction, swivel base, and compact size—not to mention the upgraded USB charging ports on the new model—earned your approval.

Second place and over 12% of the vote went to the much simpler GE Heavy Duty 3-Outlet Tap, a simple plug that turns one outlet into three via a splitter—no fancy features, no USB charging, no surge protection, but dead cheap. In third place, the Monoprice 3 Outlet Power Surge Protector Wall Tap w/ 2 Built-In USB Charger brought in 8% of the votes cast thanks to its dual-sided design, surge protection, and USB charging ports. Fourth place and over 7% of the vote went to the Monster MP OTG400 BK Outlets To Go Power Strip, and bringing up the rear in fifth with just under 7% of the vote was the Tripp Lite 3 Outlet Portable Surge Protector with 2 USB Charging Ports.
