AUSTERE VII SERIES POWER AND PROTECT 8-OUTLET POWER BLOCK

This sleek power block is a beautiful way to organize a clutter of cables. I use one beside a side table in my living room to plug in the charging dock for my Savant remote, my Ventev wireless charger (also on this list), a speaker, and an Amazon Echo Show 5 (also on this list). This leaves four outlets open for other devices as I need them. What I really love about this power block, aside from the gorgeous all-aluminum enclosure design and durable and attractive WovenArmor power cable, is that it has several outlets on the side as well for plugging in more items, including two USB ports and a 45W USB-C PD port. Another small but appreciated detail: AC outlets are well-spaced to accommodate large adapters without having to skip plugs. $280, and a six-outlet version is also available for $250. — CP
