Battery technology is getting better, but it is nowhere close to perfect. At the end of each day – if not at mid-day – we have to plug in our devices to be able to use them again.
The devices that we have to plug in are only increasing every day, from our phones and laptops to our cars! Even the much-hyped wireless charging fittings are not exactly wireless. Not yet anyway. This takes me to say that the most essential gadget of all time is a power cable!
Every little thing requires a power cable to transfer electricity to the device. More often than not, the supplied power cord is too short or you have more devices to charge than power sockets available. This is where power extension cords come in.
Extension cords come in various shapes and sizes, offering outlets from one to more than five in compact sizes. You can plug in several low voltage items in it, from mobile phones and laptops to televisions and toasters.
If you look at one household's devices, each member has their mobile phones; there may be one or two tablets, and one or more laptops or desktop computers. Then there is a television, an internet router, and perhaps a smart speaker.
All of these makeup close to 10 gadgets, some of which need to be plugged in at all times. This requires the use of one or more extension cords. As with everything, they come in multiple levels of quality.
