[The Source] TSCC: Travel 3-outlet w/ USB $10

Probably everyone has the Belkin one, but there's a Fusion branded 3-outlet with USB plug at The Source for $10 (reg. price: $30). I picked it up in-store, seems like there's plenty of stock:

I like this one for the following reasons:
1/ outlet locations can handle an oversized charger
2/ there's a well-designed cord that is both able to pack for travel and plug into awkwardly located outlets; flat plug for blocked outlets
3/ packs flatter than Belkin

Pick it up with your discounted games/bt headsets!

Cheers!

The outlet plug works but the USB didn't seem to work with my PS3 controllers. The USB worked for other things though.

This has been discussed a few times in RFD

For PS3 controllers charging, it needs a "smart source" from the other end. That means the smart source (PC/laptop/wii/ps3/xbox360) sends a signal when the controller is fully charged so it will stop the charging (to prevent from overcharging)

none of standard AC usb charger will work, not even the Belkin one. The Intec controller cradle will work though.

That also explains why you can't charge your PS3 controller when the PS3 and wii is on standby mode.

And at this price. If you need it now, get it, but I suggest waiting for the belkin to go on sale again (goes down as low as $6.99 I believe in the past)
