The original-and by far the most popular-LCG & SCG series Smart Strips were designed to simplify your electronic life and enormously cut down on your power expenses on certain electronic devices. The Smart Strip does it by sensing the current in one outlet, and smartly switching on or off the rest. Turn your TV on, and the Smart Strip turns everything else on with it. Have your computer hibernate, and everything else will shutdown the same second. Besides this, the LCG & SCG Smart Strips are an outstanding surge protector, which not only blocks out dangerous power surges but 'scrubs' your line power for smoother operation and longer life expectancy for anything plugged into it. As if this wasn't enough, its ergonomic design allows regular plugs to sit right next to large 'wall warts', while its 45 degree-angle flat plug resists damaging your wall or your furniture-or accidentally being unplugged. With its recessed power switch, it is next to impossible to switch off accidentally.
