A power strip is a block of electrical sockets. That attaches to the end of a flexible cable allowing multiple electrical devices to be powered from a single electrical socket. This products are often used when many electrical devices are in proximity. Such as for audio, video, computer systems, appliances, power tools, and lighting. So it often includes a circuit breaker. So that it can interrupt the electric current in case of an overload or a short circuit.
Some power strips provide protection against electrical power surges. Typical housing styles may include strip, rack-mount, under -monitor and direct plug-in.
Some power strips include a master switch to turn all devices on and off. This can be used with simple devices such as lights. But not with most computers. And which must use shutdown commands from the software. Computers may have open files. Which may be damaged if the power is simply turned off.
