24 socket 4100 joule surge protector with 3 usb charging ports.

I had power leads chained from each other, removed them all and used 3 of these in different locations, plus these have surge protection and I still have lots of spare sockets.

Used for laptop, monitors, power adapter for speakers, other low power transformers and items that are powered down till I require them, like phone chargers and my external CDRW which is seldom used, etc. Don't over load the circuit.

Given the amount of available outlets there, if each plug had an 1amp item plugged in, it would far exceed the firesafety of the item itself already for a fire hazard at 24amps on a 15amp circuit, even with the overage amperage to 18amps.

On the other hand, this as a phone charging station for standard chargers would be okay.

If power delivery or even lower powered laptops, this will overload.

Basically, on paper this should already look more like a fire 🔥 hazard than good utility.
I see all those outlets as a means to provide flexibility, not for them all to actually be used at once. Allows for things like power bricks that inevitably block other outlets (although the design of this particular strip sucks in that the orientation of the side-mounted outlets prevents the typical "wall wart" power brick from being used on the sides). For ease of use, I'd leave the top outlets clear for temporarily plugged in items, while using the side outlets for things that are permanently plugged in, which:
* allows the cord to lay flat instead of sticking up and being an easier target to accidentally hit,
* prevents heavier cords draping to the ground from causing stress where the cord meets the plug, and
* eliminates wasting an inch or two of cord length that it sticking up instead of to the side would require.

Bear in mind the 1A described by another commenter would mean ~115W, and it's pretty unusual nowadays to have enough such devices in a single area at home to hit that 15A limit. We have more devices than ever nowadays, but they're all much more power-efficient than they used to be, making it a wash overall. A 15A electrical circuit means over 1500W of power (it's more than that, but I'm leaving an admittedly minimal amount of overhead for safety). Typically the only devices in a modern day home that draw a significant amount of power are large appliances (which should already have their own dedicated outlets), high powered PCs (like gaming rigs), and small number very recent ultra-high speed phone chargers - having enough of those running simultaneously on the same circuit is unusual and would cause a problem even without this power strip. Even if you did pull that much, your home circuit breakers exist for a reason.

Granted, many older homes generally have fewer circuits (with multiple rooms on a single circuit), so the cumulative count of devices on the circuit would make this limit easier to reach, but this is really no different than using chained power strips like OP described, or separate strips in separate outlets that are all still on the same electrical circuit (i.e. connected to the same circuit breaker). Again, I see all those outlets being provided for the flexibility, not for them all to be used simultaneously.

As for a business shop... If your business requires that many devices in one area that draw that much power simultaneously, then you should already have an electrical system set up to handle it and not allow the use of power strips, anyway.
gosh, why can't they just make these with a flat plug?

humanly impossible to use all outlets at home. Some might use it for commercial purposes though

Yep, and then in turn makes this a complete fire hazard as it would likely be utilized in commercial setups. Can't say it doesn't make this a 🔥🔥🔥🔥 deal.

I use all 24 outlets in a workshop setting for lights, various battery chargers and small devices. Not typically using them all at once but my setup cannot max out the breaker.

What warranty does this have?

Can't find anything about this company, Powsaf, online. They don't have a dot com website. So if this fails and my PC and monitor are fried, am I SOL?

Challenge accepted.... although I wouldn't be able to do it with "standard" usage. I have a pi cluster and a few laptops, monitor, speakers, tablets, etc. that I could gather into one place and power/charge with individual charging blocks. Then throw the fridge and vacuum in for the last couple outlets... 🔥🔥 starter in the making... not to mention at this price I am not sure flipping on the vacuum (or the compressor on the fridge turning on) wouldn't mess with the current on the line and cause issues with the pi cluster... while not probable, i think it is possible given the right nerd/geek

Holy crap that second and third picture.
This is like the sparking outlet with Christmas lights joke from "A Christmas Story." But much, much worse. And it's not a joke.

Such as a commercial for a fire extinguisher.
