Tributaries Puts New Twist on Power Strip
Out of 10 protected outlets, five of the ones on the PWRS-T10 do something very funky -- and convenient.
The PWRS-T10 is also backed by a $25,000 warranty.

It’s hard to come up with something new to say about a power strip, let alone new features. Tributaries is trying to catch the eye of the consumer with the PWRS-T10.

See, five of the 10 outlets swivel, which allow it to accommodate some of those bulky AC plugs. I’ve thrown out my shoulder more than a few times trying to twist those into inconveniently placed outlets.

Aside from surge suppression and noise filtering for AC power, the unit also provides signal-line protection for telecomm (RJ-11), network (RJ-45), and cable, antenna, and satellite (F-connector) signals. It also boasts voltage-spike protection to 6 kilovolts and peak current-spike handling up to 192 kiloamps. EMI noise filtering extends up to 58dB of power-cleaning suppression over a range of 150kHz to 100MHz.

According to CE Pro, the PWRS-T10 is backed by a $25,000 warranty and available now for $80.
