Need power strip where outlets are "sideways"
I'm mounting a strip at a closet shelf and need one that has the receptacles oriented against the long axis of the strip.

It only takes one big transformer to crowd over another receptacle and waste a slot.

I need at least a 6-outlet strip. I see monster makes one but it's not as wide as I need. Also, it should be a single row--small space constraints.

My thought is that I don't like outlets in closets to begin with, so an outlet in a closet and a power strip doesn't sound like a good idea to me. JMO

Just shop around. There are TONS of different kind of power strips out there.

I will say, I agree with Kbuz on this one. A power strip in a closet sounds like a bad idea.

Thoughts on an alternative? I'm not against putting in an AFCI, but I need 5 or so plugs. It's not a walk-in--just a shallow closet under the stairs. There are no garments above or below. It would be about 5' above the floor.

Are you by any chance making this a 'data center'? Wireless router, etc?

If so....why not a small UPS? It has outlets on it....and you would have backup power in case of a brown out or power failure.

No it's just a shelf to charge an iPad, leapster pad, some walkie talkies, and a camera.
