Hotel rooms and airport terminals never seem to have enough power outlets to charge all the devices today's traveler brings along. Now you can add outlets and peace of mind on business trips and vacations with the Belkin Mini Surge Protector. This new design features three AC outlets and two powered USB outlets* - perfect for MP3 players and mobile phones. $24.99
I came across this great product last week for the first time. It turns one grounded outlet into 3 grounded outlets + 2 USB outlets, and adds surge protection too! The USB outlets are strong enough to power either an iPhone or an iPad. It's fairly compact, though the outlet prongs are not retractable (Belkin includes a plastic piece you can put over the outlet prongs to cover them - say, if you wanted to use it for travel). A nice touch (typical of Belkin) is that you can orient this adapter any way you want - there is a small button on one side that, when pushed in, allows the outlet prongs to rotate a full 360 degrees.
