Venue 11 Pro Power Strip for charging multiple tablets

Does anyone have a solution for charging 8 Venue 11 Pros at the same time, we have tried over a dozen 8 outlet power strips and none of them have the outlets spaced correctly to accommodate the ridiculously shaped Venue 11 Pro power brick.

Any suggestions would be great. Dell really need to consider how their charges are engineered, this odd shape blocks off every second outlet, Samsung and iPad high wattage charges are designed better.

Can't you just get some power cords for the charger?

Something like this:

 Those may not be the exact right ones, but they shouldn't be too hard to find.  I thought I saw them on Dell's website somewhere, but a quick search didn't turn up any.  You could call and ask too.

Currently that is our only option as we have been unable to find any power strips that accommodate the wide Dell chargers.

Dell really needs to think about the design of all aspects of their products going forward, including their chargers.

Hi Luke,

We now offer a rotating AC plug that will allow you to utilize more of the outlets on your power strips.

You can use this with your existing cables/power bricks.

Great Adriana, is this being supplied as standard going forward with the Venue 11 Pro tablets?
