power strip

An electricity distribution device that turns one AC wall outlet into several. Power strips may or may not include surge suppression circuits, and many strips leave room for the myriad power adapters that accompany products. See power distribution unit, power adapter and surge suppression.

Room for "Warts"
Many power strips leave room for one or more "wall warts;" slang for the power adapter blocks that come with many electronics products.
