Are these USB A ports about to go obsolete? I'm worried that within a few years everything's going to be USB C ports.
Good luck finding a USB-C adapter that also has NEMA 5-15R receptacles built in.

OP's product works well as travel surge protector to reach behind furniture in hotels to plug in traditional 1.2amp/2.4amp USB-A accessories as well as accept a NEMA 5-15P -> USB-C power adapter.

In for 1 =) Applause

how is 400 joules compared to other surge protectors?

is there a light?
how to tell if surge protection is still there?
400 joules is the bare minimum to be considered a surge protector. Small, cheap devices, yeah sure its fine.
If you plan on hooking up anything like a PC, phone, home theater/TV, aim higher. 2000+

Correct. Instructions say 'Total'.

Picked up the last one at my local. Odd to have an outlet on the back, but seems well made.
Yeah...not sure why they put the third outlet on the back? Seems like a dumb design choice but I guess that's why it's on sale! Wouldn't be surprised if these go lower.

1. No
2. It's $6, do you worry about things that may happen in 5 years when you buy a $6 fast food meal??

Common design for 3-outlet extension cords

There will always be USB A -> USB C cords available as there is USB A -> to almost anything USB now including C I own 3. This is one whale of a deal. Wish I needed one. I am bursting at the seams with tech here. I would go for this one, you won't be sorry.
Great catch OP!
Agree.

But the question was will it go away. It most likely will within the next couple of years and then USB C will be the norm. Faster charging and many other advantages. So the new plugs will have C not A and most chargers C not A.

But as you say there will be cords that will allow you to go C to A or A to C.​

Really. The vast majority of extension cords do that. This works well. Think you can plug in a large power adapter on the back and still use the other two. This is why they do that and besides it is cheaper to make them that way.

Good for under your bed to plug in your phone, tablet, laptop, lamp, etc...nothing heavy like desktops, entertainment systems, and other large electronics.
