Monoprice Mini Surge Protector Is a Great Gadget Travel Companion

When you travel you need to charge your gadgets. If you don't need a robust system, Monoprice's three outlet surge protector offers plenty of plugs plus two USB ports for your travel power needs.

We've featured a number of travel-friendly surge protectors in the past, and still like Belkin's three outlet with USB option, but found it bent the outlet when applying pressure. Monoprice's option fares a little better as the outlets rest on the sides, the unit doesn't take up as much space, and the entire thing rests closer to the wall. The compact package not only features three outlets, but two USB ports with 2A of available charging power. The only downside is the surge protector's protruding plug that doesn't fold inside. This one does, but it costs quite a bit more. Still, if that matters, you've got an option.
