I like this form factor as the footprint is quite small. It has a small footprint compared to the bulky long power strips. It's compact enough that it doesn't take up much space on my desk.
The usb charger outlet works. It has more plugs than i will use and also 3 usb plus one apple that i use for my watch. It charges my phone and tablet at the same time.
The power strip tower has 12 100v outlet and 3 usb-a outlet. It has lots of safety features like short circuit protection, over-current. Plenty plug ins and usb plugs. Comes in especially handy at christmas with multiple items to plug in.
I keep it on my desk, whereas my old power strip stayed on the floor and i can't bend over too well due to back issues.
This is all good. Love this tower power strip. It is exactly what i wanted. Have purchased 2 times. Will buy it again.

I have a couple of lamps plugged into this outlet and i love saying, alexa, turn on/off outlet 1, and the lamp goes on or off depending on my request. This is perfect for my grow lights.

If you open the app, it pops an error message the first time. It constantly loses wifi connection, needs manual reset, it is virtually useless to me.
The individual outlets and usb are not addressable it seems. Telling google to turn it on and off will only ever toggle the first outlet. It is small enough to plug on top of any desk.
