Flexity PowerSquid Becomes Reality

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Accessories, Smart Home

PowerSquid CalamariThink outside the box. The PowerSquid frees outlets with MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) with the benefit of a greater flexibility. We first discovered the PowerSquid at this year’s CES 2006, and now we can all have one. Flexity claims that their technology provides “enhanced heat dissipation and 27% greater capacity.” Purestream power-filtering protects your equipment and its Tripwire circuit severs electrical current in the event of a catastrophe such as lightening. You get connectivity protection for dial-up, DSL, or coax/cable.

The PowerSquid comes in three models:

  • Surge 3000 Calamari Edition PCSQ3K_CAL for PCs, home theatres, and personal electronics - $79.95.
  • Surge 3000 PCSQ3K for musicians, professional or wannabe - $69.95
  • PSOM_BLACK Outlet multiplier - $12.95.

Both surge protectors offer a $500,000 limited equipment warranty and the outlet multiplier offers a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. Add to that 2 neon glowing female outlets on the Calamari and you have some serious and sinister-looking protection.
