Sick of giving up half your power strip outlets to wall warts that cover more than one plug? Try this: The Power Squid treats ‘warts and single plugs equally.

There are three models available, but only one makes sense for the shop: the “outlet multiplier” version. (The others include surge protectors that can’t handle the power flow of tools and chargers, and they’re expensive, too, starting at around $70.) The plain black “outlet multiplier” goes for $12. Of course, if you’d like the surge protector variety, they’re available.
Indeed, street pricing starts as low as $10 if you’re willing to shop around, and they don’t go too much higher than $20 in stores.
