While those look cool, they (any "plastic" power strip) is a fire waiting to happen when used in our systems. If you do use a plug strip, it should be of the variety that has individual simplex receptacles and a steel case. They are more expensive (comercial use) but will not melt or catch on fire as easily due to arcing caused by salt creep or a spill.

I took the time to write a short warning and best practice article published at my website

Below are random photos of the "proper" style (read MUCH safer) plug strips!
