Quirky debuts readjustable Pivot Power surge protector

Quirky certainly lives up to its name with its latest creation. Normally surge protectors are a long solid strip that can some times pose a problem if their nonconforming shapes don't fit with your office layout nor cannot host multiple bulky adapters.

Not so with the Pivot Power strip, which is designed to be flexed and twisted in between each of the six electrical sockets. And based on the photo above, it looks like powering up several gadgets with large adapters at one time shouldn't be a problem anymore. Available in either 110v or European 240v versions, there's also an off/reset button for extra control.

Plus with the blue gradient design, it's aesthetically pleasing without being too boring or too much.

According to the press release, the Pivot Power strip is available for pre-order now for $23 each (normally $25). A bit steep for a surge protector, but this one isn't ordinary.
