Socket strip with USB charger from ORICO: different versions

In the picture above you can see a power strip with 8 Schuko sockets and 5 USB ports. This is a comparatively large model that could perhaps be used in the living room or in an office. ORICO also offers smaller power strips with USB ports. Here is a selection of some models that are currently reduced (as of March 2017):

Narrow socket strips with USB charger on the top

The socket strips from ORICO have one disadvantage despite their great design, on-off switch and many USB connections: they are quite wide due to the two rows of Schuko connections. If you want a modern power strip in a narrow design that also fits between furniture or in the gap between the sofa and the wall, then you need a single-row power strip with an integrated USB charger. I have also picked out such models for you (some also with temporary offers and promotions; details see product page):

For home offices and co-working spaces: sockets and USB charging stations for the table

The other case: you don't want to hide your power strip with USB charger or USB connections, but rather place it on the table. The following socket stations with USB connections could pay off, especially in a co-working space. From experience with the Google campus in Madrid I can say that such stations seem more practical than sockets recessed in the table or bench:
