Powersquid Review and Giveaway!

I have never met a person as technology obsessed as BD. He loves ANYTHING electronic, or gadgety. This always poses a problem of tens of thousands of cords hanging out of everything. I hate the cords. Grrr. 

But, now, I have found something that is going to change that! 
This little beauty, is the Powersquid Calamari Surge 3000 Surge Protector. This is the Big Daddy of surge protectors. It ain't playin' around. 

The Calamari contains 3240 Joules of surge protection. Do I know what that means? Hell no. But, BD says that is damn good for a surge protector. It is equipped to handle the biggest power surges and spikes. 

The flat profile plug swivels a whole 360 degrees so you can plug into a plug that is blocked by a bookcase, desk, whatever. The Calamari also has a place to plug in your cable and DSL lines! It also has a giant 8 foot power cord, so you will have enough room for everything!


And, Y'all wanna know Mama's favorite part? Check it out!
The Calamari has TWO lighted plugs! This makes it super easy to find a plug in the dark, plus it makes a great night light! :)

What Mama Thinks: I really love the Powersquid Calamari! It just looks so damn cool! It really has helped us get more "cord organized", and I feel better knowing that all of our expensive shit is protected. Plus, I've said it once, I'll say it again, I LOVE the blue lights! ( I am such a GIRL! LOL) 
The Powersquid Calamari retails for $79.95. But, wait! Don't break out your cash just yet, you can win a PowerSquid Calamari of your own!

The lovey doveys @ Powersquid are giving away another Powersquid Calamari Surge Protector just like the one I reviewed! Here's How to WIN! 
(Please pay attention to the entry for this giveaway, it is slightly different than others you may have entered)
