Around the office, we’re constantly needing to connect and charge new devices. It’s always a struggle to find a power outlet with enough open spots, and getting many larger plugs to fit, and of course the battle in the dark to actually find an outlet while you’re crawling on the floor under your desk. Plugable’s new desk clamping surge protector helps avoid all of these frustrations thanks to the unique desk clamping design, the 2 oversized “wall-wart” capable outlets, and the 2-port 10.5W (2.1A shared) USB charger built in to eliminate the need for separate USB chargers.
No longer will you need to climb under your desk, searching in the dark to find an open outlet. Instead, just plug it in at arms height!
With up to 2100 joule protection, the PS6-USB2DC offers better surge suppression than many other bargain surge protectors. Joules are a measure of how large a surge is, so a higher joule rating means a protector is able to suppress a larger surge — so the higher the joule rating, the better protection a suppressor offers.USB Charging
Battery charging over USB has become a standard practice but the actual charging behavior of different devices is often unpredictable and sometimes disappointing. The devices themselves decide how much current to draw and manufacturers haven’t settled on a single standard. We’ve been working to test our products with as many different devices as possible and publish the results so it’s easy to determine the charging behavior to expect from your device on each of our USB products. These are the results for the devices we’ve tested on this device so far.
The "MAX of mA with Host On" is a bit confusing at first glance. The easiest way to understand this is that these values are the maximum reported charging rate (mA) when connected to a computer (host) that is powered on. The "Max of mA with Host Off" is simply the opposite, it is the charging rate (mA) when there is no connected computer (host) or if the computer is turned off.
Some entries in the charging sheet contain blank spaces for the syncing capabilities, that is because we have not had a chance to test that device yet for syncing.
Note that some devices, may charge only at slow "trickle charge" rates, and not indicate they are charging. These are shown as a 0 charge rate.

Take a look at the USB-MC1 charging adapter. This charging adapter let's you turn any USB port on a powered USB hub or computer into a 1A charging port. The only limitations is that the AC adapter of the powered USB hub needs to be rated for at least 1A for each USB charging adapter. For instance, you won't be able to turn your 10 Port USB 2.0 Hub into a 10 port charging station as the USB hub comes with a 2.5A AC adapter. This means that you can charge at most 2 devices using the USB Charging Adapters, because each adapter will consume 1A leaving .5A for any other devices on the hub.
