    Which is what a basic power strip do, as far as I know: and, as a matter of fact, what you need is a power strip (call it "power distribution unit", if you rather) without that surge arrest circuit your Belkin should have, doesn't it?
    Whether it were relatively inexpensive, you may use that PDU, why not: whether it were significantly expensive, personally I'd look at some "plain jane" power strips.

    Right, it has unfiltered electrical pass-through so that would work - electrically. But it is for rack mounting and it has IEC-320 C13 output receptacles so you would need adapter cables for each device connected. Plus the connectors are mounted close together so your devices that use DC power blocks will likely cover some of the connectors making them unusable.

    Plus, it is very expensive for what it does.

    And do you live in a country with 208/230VAC mains?

    Electrically, it looks like they will, but they seem pretty wide so not sure you have space to put them next to each other. You may end only being able to use 1/2 of the connectors on the bar.

    I still think you should be able to find a less expensive and less complicated alternative that is more like the splitter cable I linked to above.

    Will these cables do the job:- http://www.stayonline.com/detail.aspx?id=40050 with the adapters. The specifications say it is 10 feet. Can you please tell me how big is 10 feet. Can you figure out if it is 10 feet with or without legs.

    Yeah, those look like they will work.

    Can you please tell me how big is 10 feet.
    Umm, somewhere between 9 and 11.

    I note it says the legs are 24 inches. I am sure that means the remaining length is 8 feet. And I can tell you I sure would NOT want that much extra cable laying around behind my desk.

    I note the same site has the same thing in various lengths, including a 2 foot total length version (12 inches plus 12 inches) for considerably less money. Or you can have them manufacture a cable to your specs.

    I am assuming you weren't teasing: one foot is 30.48cm, so 10 feet are 3.048mt (3 metres, 4 centimeters and 8 millimeters).

    No, I was teasing, not him. Pretty sure he was wondering if that meant 10 feet total length, or 10 feet before the splitter plus another 2 feet (in this case) after the splitter for 12 feet total.

    Seriously? Are you really trying to tell us you don't know how long 10 feet is?

    Did you read the replies after you asked how big 10 feet is? And did you notice the wink () after I said between 9 and 11?
