This genius power strip 'twists and turns' to fit chunky cords and awkward spaces — and it's down to $17

There are millions of power strips, smart plugs and surge protectors out there — and you probably have at least four or five in your home. There may even be a storage bin with a handful more sitting in the back of your closet that you don't use, right? It's no wonder: They usually fall short in two areas: size and looks. Well, Amazon shoppers have dug up the genius iJoy Flexible Power Strip that can bend (literally) to your every need.

With its adjustable design, built-in surge protection, versatility and good looks, it makes sense that it's got a legion of fans. Bonus: It's on sale for $17.

The power strip has three AC outlets, two USB ports and a handy 5-foot extension cord, making it an all-in-one solution that'll adapt to fit your space while it keeps the power flowing.

Why is it a good deal?

This power strip looks way more expensive than it is. After all, pretty, well-designed tech accessories are rarely affordable, and almost never less than $20. And since this is adjustable to fit your specific needs, it's kind of like four extension cords in one. It comes with two USB ports so you don't have to use an adapter that takes up a whole outlet.

Why do I need this?

Each AC port has its own cube, and the power strip can flex around the leg of a chair, a bed, your computer monitor, a TV stand or more. This allows it to take up as little space as possible so you have more room for more things — and who doesn't love more things? Because of the unique cubic design, you'll never run into that pesky problem when one outlet isn't usable thanks to a large plug (which seems to happen with every laptop charger ever). Of course, there's also surge protection and overload protection, keeping your devices safe from overheating or blowing out.

What reviewers say

Amazon shoppers rave about the iJoy Flexible Power Strip, with one calling it "the best purchase." Others say the colors — in addition to white, it comes in soft pink, light blue and mint green— are just as pretty in person as they look online.

"I didn't know I needed this until I used it," shared one Amazon customer. "Being able to toggle each charging cord has been life-changing. Now I don't have to worry about my laptop charger taking up space. I love the USB ports, too."

"I love everything about this little power strip!" raved another reviewer. "The flexibility means I can easily plug my chunky Mac cord into the strip at the same time I have other devices plugged in. I liked it so much I bought a second one for my daughter's room, and I just put a third one in my Amazon cart. I haven't traveled with it yet, but it would easily fit into a suitcase or carry-on."

"Not only is this product cute, but very functional as you can use every outlet," a third shopper wrote. "A lot of times, the larger three-prong plugs take up two outlets, but since you can turn this outlet in different angles, it allows you to make room for larger plugs."

"So cool," reported a five-star fan. "I love how it twists and turns. Just wish it was a bit longer in cord length."

"I use this on my desk and it’s awesome," said a final buyer. "The only real gripe I have is that it does move quite easily. The bottom is very slick and there is not a whole lot of weight to it. The only reason I experience this issue is because I have it hooked up on the other side of my desk and string it to the opposite side, so naturally it will pull back."

Choose from pink (shown), light blue, mint green and white.
