Todayâ€™s Dorkfest Gear:
What the hell is it? Wet Circuits Power Strip is exactly what it sounds like but with a twist. You know the typical power strip. Four plugs. Not much has changed with the design of power strips over the years. But the interior of that strip has changed thanks to the folks at Wet Circuits. This power strip is water resistant and won’t work unless a proper plug is 100% inserted. It’s also water resistant. In other words, this is a power strip on Barry Bonds’ flax seed oil.
Yeah, but do I really need it? Do you have kids who stick metal into outlets just to be little shits who need a timeout? Yeah, well, you could drop some bones on the Wet Circuit strip and not have to worry. We’ve been testing this unit by sticking tweezers into the outlets and haven’t been shocked. That’s because of the design. Of course we were apprehensive. Our parents raised us right. But we aren’t dead.
Will chicks dig it? Wait until chicks see you get wasted, drop a beer on the Wet Circuits and her freak out because she’s recharging her BlackBerry in the strip. No sparks or electrocution! This beer over the Wet Circuits test is BC approved. We sacrificed a Yuengling in the name of research.
Is it easy to use? It’s a power strip, but then again some of you are morons so this is a toss up.
Conclusion: Of course the strip is pricey ($70) but promises to give you 4X the lifespan of a normal power strip. Do you want a power strip that’ll last 18 years? This is your power strip. Us, we just want a strip that can take a spilled beer and keep humming along.
