Eject Powerstrip concept keeps it green with pedals

Posted in Concepts by Reuben Drake on March 17th, 2008

Eject Powerstrip concept uses pedals to eject the plugs and cut off power to save electricityThere certainly seems to be no shortage of power strip products lately as just about everyone seems to have found a way to build a better set of outlets. The Eject Powerstrip is designed to conserve electricity by making it easier for people to unplug their unused devices and lessen the electricity “leakage” when they are not being used.

The powerstrip has a foot pedal next to each outlet that will eject the electrical cord plug when pressed with your foot. According to the designers of the Eject Powerstrip, they’ve eliminated some of the biggest excuses why people don’t unplug their unused devices. Laziness, inconvenient access and open outlets accessible to small children topped the list. This “green” powerstrip would not only make it easy and convenient to unplug, but when the pedal is pressed it also cuts off access to the electricity through the outlet so that the little tikes can’t get hurt.

APC Power-Saving SurgeArrestAPC is out today with news of a new power strip it says “provides home computer systems guaranteed protection from damaging surges and spikes, while saving electricity.” It is called the Power-Saving SurgeArrest and it prices around $35.

The APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest has built into it master/controlled outlets which automatically shut down power to unused peripherals, such as printers, scanners and speakers when the computer is in sleep mode. It does this by sensing the power draw of connected equipment and realizing that when an attached computer on the master goes into standby, hibernation or is turned off, the controlled outlets are automatically powered off to prevent connected peripherals from continuing to draw power.
