Pickup Power

The need for dozens of outlets on power strips peaked in the mid 2000s; now, plug in your laptop and you’re golden. But on-the-go power is more indispensable than ever, and so Quirky came up with Pickup Power. This three AC outlet power strip protector offers 1080 joules of surge protection and, brilliantly, boasts a removable power pack with 4,000 or 6,000 mAh of battery capacity. When your devices are low on juice and you’ve gotta hit the road, just pop out the pack and go, then drop it back in for a top up when you’re back home.

Find it at Quirky or Amazon – $80+
