A power strip (also known as a power bar, power board, gangplug or multibox) is a strip of sockets that attaches to the end of a flex and allows multiple devices to be plugged in. As such it can be considered a type of trailing socket though that term is more often used for single and double cable mounted sockets. The term can be used to refer to the complete assembly with the power strip on one end and a plug on the other (see socket splitters).
