The power strip has always seemed like a hopelessly utilitarian object, destined to a humble, hidden life under your desk. But this sleek, curvy white Belkin eight-outlet Compact Surge Protector not only looks great—worthy of, say, the iMac that you might plug into it—but it’s cleverly designed. In addition to its four standard three-prong outlets on top, it offers four more on the side that nicely accommodate clunky transformers which can be too fat to plug in next to each other on other power strips. There are also modular in and out jacks hidden on the thin side, so you can protect your voice or fax line from lightning strikes.
