I didn't know just how bad I needed this until I bought it. We are electronic junkies in my house so we generally have way too may thing needing to charge or be plugged in. I had long power strips that are hard to hide and are just a giant eyesore laying in the floor with hundreds of cords going everywhere. I have this one by my bed so i can charge my phone at night and have my laptop and lamp going. It doesn't draw the eye it's white the color of my walls. I do wish it fast charged with the usb ports but as I do my overnight charging with it I don't mind a good slow charge. the blue light does not bother me either but I am a tv sleeper lights don't mess with me at night like some people. I would recommend a hundred times over.
