Regularly over $35, this is one of the best prices we’ve tracked historically and is the lowest available. You’ll get one master outlet and seven “controlled” outlets. These secondary outlets can either turn on/off with the master (great for home theaters) or set to an “always on” mode. Rated 4.2/5 stars.

For a slimmer package and more budget-friendly approach, try this six-outlet solution for just under $14 Prime shipped. You’ll lose out on the built-in USB ports, will only have six outlets (instead of eight), and don’t have USB ports, but it’s a great lower-cost alternative.
