Accell's Award -Winning PowerSquid® Power Outlet Multiplier Now Available

The PowerSquid provides multiple outlets that conveniently convert one grounded outlet into five grounded, adapter ready outlets

Fremont, Calif. - Dec. 7, 2010 - Accell, a provider of premium audio/video and computer accessories, today announced the availability of its newest product, the PowerSquid Power Outlet Multiplier, an alternative design to a traditional rigid power strip.

The PowerSquid power outlet multiplier offers several outlets that easily convert one grounded outlet into five grounded, adapter ready outlets. The varying lengths of the PowerSquid's arms provide increased reach and flexibility, allowing each outlet to be readily positioned for convenient use. The unit features a lighted master On/Off switch, which indicates that the unit is operational. A built -in 15 -Amp circuit breaker adds safety, while a three -foot grounded power cord provides additional flexibility of movement for users.

Unlike traditional power strips, Accell's PowerSquid is equipped with flexible arms to help prevent damage to a power plug of any connected device. In the case of a sudden pull force on a connected device's power cord, the flexible arms bend to the direction of the pull, accommodating pull force from most any direction.

"The PowerSquid is an ingenious product with powerful brand equity," stated Michael Weizer, director of marketing, Accell. "The do -it -yourselfer, contractor or anyone that has the need for multiple power outlets will certainly gravitate to the PowerSquid."

With an MSRP of $19.99, the PowerSquid Power Outlet Multiplier is the first in a line of PowerSquid products to be marketed by Accell. Protected by Accell's lifetime manufacturer's warranty, the PowerSquid is manufactured under license from Trident Design, LLC.
