Imagine you only had access to one power outlet (and no splitter). How would you make the most of your situation?
For example, assume you have access to the one outlet here:
What do I have plugged in? My computer, of course.
After that, my next most important thing to power is my cell phone. However, I can do that off my laptop via USB, so that keeps me to one outlet.
I don’t need a clock, TV, or radio since my computer covers all of that.
In a pinch, I could unplug my computer for an hour or so while using the outlet for other things. That would allow me to use the outlet to make toast. Life is good.
