There is no doubt that in the modern home there is a need for multiple power sockets and even USB ports. The problem is that even with multi sockets there is not nearly enough sockets to power everything, this means a mess of plugs and cables. The Twist Volt is an interesting idea that seems to solve this problem in style, unlike other multi sockets this one is made up of individual units each capable of providing a power and USB port. The unique shape allows it to be twisted around into different positions thanks to the built in joints.
There are LED’s to indicate that the USB is working and basically this is a wonderful design that looks nothing like you would expect an extention lead to look like. The Twist Volt can provide the user with enough power and USB sockets where it is needed whether in the home or at work. The Twist Volt will be launching this summer, although it can still be pre ordered from around $50 for the standard plug model, or alternatively for $130 the fully loaded six plug and eight USB port model.
