The PowerSquid Surge 3000 (Calamari Edition) was announced by Flexity, LLC back in late August of this year. The PowerSquid is a unique series of power surge protection devices in that they are not manufactured in the typical rectangular boxes with a cord out the end, you normally see in stores and online. The PowerSquid series, is just that. They are cephalopod-shaped, allowing the surge protector to be much more flexable (literally) for electronic device connections.
Think Outside The Box!
Think Outside The Box! is Flexity, LLC's motto for the PowerSquid surge protectors and makes sense. How many of those surge protectors have you purchased where the outlets were all housed in a rectangular box? Myself included, most of us just position our electronic devices so they fit properly and close to the surge box. And what about AC adapters? I'm sure those who read this can say they've pulled out a few hairs from their head because of many of their favorite digital devices have AC adapters which are rather large, and quite rudely, block another outlet next to it on the surge protector. So, effictively, an 8-outlet surge protector becomes a 4-outlet surge protector. Why manufacturers still produce the large boxy AC adapter with the prongs directly sticking out of it, is anyone's guess, and there have been few solutions over the decades of surge protectors being sold on the market.
The PowerSquid Surge 3000 (Calamari Edition)
Now let's take a look at a company which is actually making a difference in how you view surge protectors, as well as re-defining the quality of a surge protector at the same time. What you see below, is the PowerSquid. DigitalDingus has received the Calamari Edition of the PowerSquid Surge 3000 series, which adds a few more bells, whistles, and higher power protection, for about $10 more than the standard Surge 3000.
The added features on the Calamari Edition are:
Purestream EMI/RFI Filter rated at 58dB versus 40dB on standard model
360º Swivel outlet plug
2 Neon illuminated outlets
As you can see, the PowerSquid adds a new dimension to connecting your components, as well as offers a compact design.
