It's sold for travel use, but I purchased it for my kids room. All of the outlets are in inconvenient locations are blocked by furniture and couldn't charge there devices without have to snake charger chords. Now they have this conveniently on the nightstand and it helps keep it organized.
Great for travel to hotels where they have the outlet on the lamps. This brings the plug out where you can use it, and multiplies it with the addition of two usb ports. No need for 5 or 10 cords like some reviewers were saying. If you want that, get an extension cord. This is for compact travel. It folds up perfectly into your briefcase without a bunch of extra cord, it even has its own cord management.
