No, mine does not light up.
My 6’ has rotating head.
The plug itself,not including the prongs is exactly 1/2 inch thick
Yes. This has a right angle plug. It is also known as a flat faced plug because it presses in to the socket and the chord goes straight down (or straight up) instead of out. A right angle plug is one where the chord comes out the side of the plug head instead of out the back. I know this is a year and a half after … Yes. This has a right angle plug.

Hi. Our Belkin 6-Outlet Home/Office Surge Protector with Rotating Plug (BE106000-06-RP) doesn’t have any light indicator.
This hasn’t caused any fire hazard and I’ve had it for 9 months…
The electrical rating is stated as 120 VAC, 60 Hz. Haven’t seen any mention of 220 V.
I have not had to use the warranty service, so this is just a guess. Have your receipt or Amazon purchase order available, or estimate of date of purchase and price. Then go to the Belkin website (http://www.belkin.com/us/). Place your mouse over the "Support tab at the top banner, and select from the drop-down menu… I have not had to use the warranty service, so this is just a guess.

I wouldn’t connect a TV to this device. When I plugged a hair dryer into it blew my hair dryer and broke – this was the first time I used it and I had to throw it away because was beyond the return date
Not sure, but I’ve had mine for over a year and no fires
It’s probably your seller
Contact manufacturer- they can answer that question.
Yes, Ro. As long as the connected equipment will not exceed the maximum power/energy rating of 1080 Joules, it should work fine.
Info About Power Strip, Belkin Surge Protector 6 AC Multiple Outlets, Flat Rotating Plug, 6 ft Long Heavy Duty Extension Cord for Home, Office, Travel, Computer Desktop & Charging Brick, White (1080 Joules) (Reviews From Amazon)
I own a few of these Belkin 6-outlet power strips with flat rotating plug. The are perfect for use when you have furniture right in front of the outlet you need access too. The flat rotating plug was the perfect feature I needed. I have these behind a few night stands and other pieces of furniture. It allows me to get the furniture almost right up to the wall. I have been several different Belkin models of power strips for many years, and I have never had any complaints or issues with any of them. One of the leading causes of home fires are poor quality power strips. Sadly Underwriters Laboratories has issued warnings over the years of power strips and surge protectors that may present shock or fire hazards as well as ones that carry counterfeit UL marks on them. It is never worth buying a cheap power strip or surge protector from an unverified UL tested company.
This is my go-to power strip that I keep a supply of and replenish with more when I run out. It has (almost) everything I could want in a power strip. I have found this to be the most universally usable power strip for applications around my home.
(1) So many of my outlets are hidden behind furniture or appliances. This with its wall hugging plug make it easy to extend access to outlets that are otherwise covered up. Better yet, the 360-degree rotation is great because you can start going in the right direction without having to loop around if it isn’t already angled in the right direction.
(2) Even when not blocked by something, I think it looks nicer to have a power strip subtly plug in hugging the wall instead of perpendicular to it.
(3) And it gives you the flexibility to rotate around most any other plug that may have a fixed direction that can vary among non-rotating wall hugging plugs.
(4) The 6-foot power cord is great too. And if you don’t need that much, you can leave it bundled up and I found it stays nicely out of the way for my applications using it for shorter distances. I just use Velcro straps to keep it tidy.
(5) It has a subtle on/off button that you aren’t likely to accidentally trip, which I prefer nicely tucked on the end.
(6) No LED light emitted if you want to keep the area dark and not noticeable.
(7) I like the slim & sleek look that seems more polished than your basic power strips.
Virtually none. But if I had one wish, it would be that the outlets on the strip be oriented sideways so larger AC adapters hang to the side instead of covering more outlets. But you can use power-strip liberator adapters to help with that.
I’ve been using this for 6 months so far and I haven’t had any issues with it. I use it in my bathroom. I have a double window fan plugged in 24/7 all year long for exhaust. 5 of the outlets are always in use, even if the appliances arent in use. My hair appliances stay plugged in most of the time because I’m too lazy to put them away after each use. So, they stay plugged in, but sort of tucked away out of sight. Alexa Plus is also always plugged in. No issues with the strip getting hot etc.
I love the flat plug and specifically sought out this type so that a small chest could set back almost flush against the wall at the outlet. The strip itself is pretty slim and compact as well, so it is easy to keep it out of the way and hidden. The cord is thick and durable.
My new refrigerator is large and so has a snug fit, not much room behind it and also my 1956 house and old wiring, so as you would expect, there are not enough outlets in the kitchen. I need to have use of the outlet behind the refrigerator; this surge protector has a long enough cord and the flat and rotating plug made it possible for me to plug it in. A power outage also occurred around the time I got my new refrigerator, which cause me concern about possible power surges; so I also plugged the refrigerator into the surge protector. I bought a 2nd surge protector for the work computer my employer supplied for me to use to work from home, you can see that with the 360 degree plug rotation, it is possible to plug it into an outlet with another device plugged into it.
This is a great power strip. I use it in my Tech Go-Bag. It allows me to plug in my electronics where ever I go and I don’t have to worry about the number of outlets. It has an plug in that can swivel for ease of use. It has never let me down. I liked it so much, that I bought a second for my wife for her Tech Go-Bag. I would recommend it for anyone, but especially travelers who are tired of counting outlets where they are staying.
I chose this one specifically because the plug-head is adjustable and rotates. For some wacky reason, all the outlets in our home are installed upside-down. Lately, some cords are designed with the plug-head to be flat/flush, and at an angle. With our plugs upside-down, it forces the cord to turn to the other direction. This plug-head rotates so I could angle it as I wanted. So helpful! I also needed an extra long cord, so this one is great. It’s used to plug in basic things like a hair dryer & heating pad, so I use the Off switch too.
Let’s face it. Belkin or any other company in the surge protector business is never going to reimburse you for the damage done to your electronics from lightning, etc.. I’ve read stories all over the place about horrible warranty service and dodgy tactics. They’ll do anything to get out of paying you for damages from their products lack of ability to stop electrical surges.
That aside, it’s fine as a power strip. Just makes you wonder, why do we pay a premium for a “surge protector” when we know we’re never going to get our money if something happens.
“And that’s the rest of the story.”
Review for Belkin 6-Outlet Commercial Power Strip Surge Protector: We recently had an electrical surge make it into our home. Not too surprising since we live rurally in an area that has lots of power outages. We have everything plugged into surge protector strips or UPCs. When the surge came three very high quality (expensive) surge protectors burnt up. Fortunately the fires were contained mostly within the units. The capacitor for our deep water well also got fried. One wall circuit breaker had to replaced. Another one popped but is still good.
What survived the surge were a bunch of inexpensive Belkin power strip/surge protectors and the UPC units that are all APC units. Because of that I ordered three of these inexpensive Belkins to replace the pricey name brand strips that fried on account of the surge.
Given that experience, I can recommend Belkin power strips like this one reviewed.
This is now my "go-to" surge protector….
Flat plug for pushing furniture up tight: Check!
Swivel plug to swing cord to the ideal position: Check!
6 foot cord: Check
Quality brand: Check
Decent number of outlets: Check (for most applications)
Cost: Check! (White 6 foot model is $12.12 at the time of this review)
This is a great surge protector,
the only place I could ask for improvement would be a tighter, more positive acting switch would be appreciated.
At least one time as I’m pushing this surge protector into position,
something has contacted the top mounted switch and shut off the protector (!).
relocating the switch could be a solution too, but a top mounted switch could also be inadvertently engaged,
A firmer acting switch would help without changing the location, and take more effort to ‘accidentally’ engage.
I was also going to suggest a black version of this model,
but it looks like they already make one:
Belkin 6-Outlet Surge Protector with 6-Foot Power Cord (BSE600-06BLK-WM )
and as of today the black one is just $9.08 on prime.
It’s a surge protector. We used it to replace an approximately 15-year-old one that started sparking and smoking. Luckily we were home when the old one went, and a fuse blew before it caught fire. Replace your old power strips, people!
This one has worked well so far, and gives ample sockets for the various lamps and electronics at my desk.
