Power Strip is Waterproof, Won't Electrocute You

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 35 comments

Just what I needed for my yacht.

I'm not sure about you guys, but I hate it when I spill water all over my power strip, leading to shorting out all my electronic gadgets. This happens all the time when I move my work outdoors with me and a thunderstorm hits.

Okay, not really. But now I don't have to worry about any of that happening if I had this Wet Circuits power strip that claims to be completely safe and waterproof.

Check out the video below, and more like it at Wet Circuits.

Waterproof Power Strip

At least now I won't have to choose between working and bathing. Okay, not really.

    I child proof my home by keeping my doors locked and using birth control. I've been using this method for 7 years now, and haven't had a single child get in.

    it be awkward when you're trying to kill your wife over insurance racket...

    you make a nice rose water bubble bath...a bit of champagne...some Barry White in the background...

    she's all nice and relaxed in the tub unaware of your nefarious scheme...

    you say "Hon...let me bring that stereo a bit closer..." she says "Okay..." then you say "YOU BITCH!!! THIS IS FOR 6 YEARS OF MISERY!!!" as you throw the stereo with the power strip in the tub...

    nothing happens... then you say "uhmmm....kidding!!! how's the water, pumpkins?" and both of you laugh nervously....

    They shouldn't stop at power strips if they can they need to make electrical outlets. Ones that fit in current electrical outlet boxes and compatible with current wall plates. Then you could really child proof your home.

    I'm glad that she is perfectly fine at the end with tweezers.....It would have been a real shame had she died from electrocution.

    This would be great for my light-o-rama controllers that are outside in the rain and snow every winter and 4th.

    How does that work? Even if you short circuit it with a tweezers, scissors and such, no shorts?
