WetCircuits water resistant power strip giveaway


I previously reviewed the WetCircuits water resistant power strip and risked death by electrocution to prove the products worth.  In acknowledgement of my valiant bravery they have agreed to provide another power strip for me to giveaway to the great readers of CheapVegetableGardener.com

If you haven’t heard of the WetCircuits power strip it built to be shock resistant so pouring water on it, pushing tweezers into the outlets will not shock you.  This may seem like a pointless feature but if you have ever spilled coffee (or dumped a watering can of water) on an outlet you will appreciate these features greatly.  Now I must say it is much more entertaining to see this in action so check out the video from WetCircuits.


If you think their video was done with camera angles and expensive video editing, here is my own independent recreation of one of their experiments.


So if you are in the continental United States, just enter a comment below and I will pick a winner at random on 04/23/2011 Midnight PST.

There are multiple ways to enter:

  13. Ragnar Says:

    I’m still not entirely happy with the idea. It makes electricity and water look like a good thing, when it is in fact a lethal danger (broken cable, hole in the casing). I can’t think of a situation, where you would want water and electricity in the same place and can only hope people will use this device consciously, e.g. tell their kids that it is just this one make, but usually avoid water with electricity like the plague. Just imagine a kid playing with those and then try at a neighbors!

  14. Rob Says:

    This would be great in the greenhouse!

    This is genius!

  16. Jennie Says:

    What a great idea! I’d love to have one of these.

  17. Nan Says:

    I’m kind of with Ragnar on this one. I can see the utility of the device and can think of places where I’d have a use for it, but I also worry about making electricity seem less dangerous than it is.

    This is so awesome!

  25. metis Says:

    oh, that’s so many times less disturbing than the bare wires from a mains box shoved into one of the outlets on a powerstrip to power the others. i’d be all about that on the potting bench.

  26. Sarah W. Says:

    What a wonderful invention!

  29. vegetable gardening planting Says:

    What a great safety feature. This would be great for tools and kids alike.

  30. saving water Says:

    I think it is not a good invention as we are trying to save electricity and water both and it uses both. If it uses renewable resource then it will be beneficial.

  31. Martin Smith Says:

    This is something very dangerous in my opinion. The water and an electric circuit is never a good and safe combination. People should be very very careful in this regards. By the way on the other I would say that you have done something brave but still people should refrain from doing anything like this.
