    Those are nice Rob,

    The individual power switch on each outlet is handy.

    I use a tripplite Power Strip. I have one under the 180, and one in the sump room. They leave lots of room for large power adaptors, and have LOTS of plugs. Handle 15amps total. Got one on Ebay, and one from someone here on AC.

    Hey TMM,

    Thats what I have I picked it up at HD but it was pricey.I like the individual on/off switches on these units good to label without have to build a huge electrical panel.

    Did the power bars arrive? If so, what's your opinion before I place my order. Thanks, Nelson

    It is too bad these have sold out.

    I bought two of them at $8.99 each. Similar to the ones Rob is getting.

    So I bought a powerbar with 12 outlets on it a few months back from
    The Source in Kanata, cost me 29 bucks I think it was. Works great for me and the plugs are nicely spaced out.

    I just got them today,They are great!I emailed the company to see what the Max amp load was but they never got back to me,Now that I have it its 15Amps with overload breaker.
    Its not a cheap unit and quite heavy for a power bar.

    I bought 2x GE Power Strip Timers for 12.99
    They function exactly like the coralife single timer (look similar too). for under 15$ bucks each, i dropped my special order at BA's for the coralife digital timer b/c it does not handle dawn/dusk settings.
