Modular Power Strip Concept: Volt-tron

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen a variety of takes on the power strip that address not only the need for more outlets but the awkward fit of different plugs and adapters. Designer Chih-Yao Chen’s solution is simple: break the power strip apart so that you can re-arrange the parts as needed.

As expected, each module can work independent of the others. A power strip with only one outlet may sound like a joke, but as you’ll see in the second picture in the gallery below it’ll still come in handy in some instances. But again, the important thing is that you can rearrange the bricks and that they come in different sizes, making it easy to fit all kinds of plugs.

I’m sure that this concept still has its limits though. There has to be a limit to the number of devices that can be strung together in one mega power strip. And as commenters at Yanko Design have pointed out, if you insert even one plug that had no ground prong, it would negate the point of the ground prongs on the other plugs.

I wonder if this concept really is feasible, and if so, if it could be taken to the extreme: skip the bricks and convert plugs and adapters themselves into modular power strips.
