I purchased this product for my son who has crazy amount of devices of his own. This surge protector has \"PROTECTED\" sign lit all the time, and it's SO unnecessarily bright that my son put a couple pillow over it when he goes to bed. It makes a quiet buzzing sound even when nothing is hooked up, and I'm afraid that this product is eating up a lot more energy than the regular 6-outlet surge protector.

Works great! My only complaint would be that it does not feel too securely attached to the outlet even with the screw tightened. I would also like to see a little more space between the top outlets (I got the 3 outlet version) so that you can put multiple USB chargers on it. Other than that, it works just fine.

I like this product except for one feature. It has a green light that remains on when the product is plugged into the outlet. I don't need a outlet that is constantly using electricity and is \"on\". I had bought a second one for my bedroom. But I will not use it there due to the constant green light. Otherwise the product works as advertised and I can recommend it.
I am very pleased with the quality of the 6-outlet surge protector. I use it to charge my dive electronics and like that its indicator light will tell me if I need to reset the wall outlet. Adaptors do take up too much space to use all six outlets. Though I haven't used the USB part yet, it is certainly nice to have the option.
I can't speak to the surge-protection quality of this product yet. I like the fact that it plugs in flush with the wall and is held in place directly to the outlet by an included screw. It's got a fairly bright green light which I can see shining beneath the console which may be distracting to some people. I don't mind it, though.
The plug was easy to install and looked great. The only issue is with the indicator light on the top. It is very bright and lights up the entire room at night. I had to put a piece of electrical tape over it just to sleep at night. But if it's in a room where you don't mind having a super bright green light then it works perfectly.
I bought both the Aduro 3 & 6 Outlet Surge Protectors w./ USB Multi-Charging. In addition, I purchased an additional 6 Outlet Surge for a gift. The Aduro allows for electrical cords to be off table/working surface and out of sight, since Aduro plugs into an outlet. The cord clutter is no longer. Yea! I highly recommend.
Exactly as described. I wish the outlets were spaced further apart to accommodate the large chargers that so many electronics come with. This would make the unit twice as wide but more functional. Love that it plugs into the upper wall outlet and is secured into the lower wall outlet by a dummy plug.
Love it! I had replaced a receptacle in my home that had the USB ports - but this one gives me 3 outlets with the usb!
This product works as intended; however, my only complaint is that it tends to pull out of the wall receptacle when removing power cords (not USB devices). There is a screw included to address this problem, but it does not solve the problem. Otherwise, the charger and outlets work fine.
