How many devices do you add to one power socket?

We looked at how many things you can plug into one power connector and I was wondering which forum user has the most devices plugged into a single power socket?

You're telling me. Sometimes when I'm travelling I almost feel like a charger salesman, I have so many. Fortunately, simonjary told me about a superb backpack a while ago, and I manage to get everything in without any bother.

UK electricity usage per capita has double since 1960 then 2,500Kw now 5,000Kw

However France and Germany have gone from 1,500Kw to 7,000Kw

As for battery run gadgets, good job there is a chance of Lithium mining in Cornwall

Doesn't surprise me that electricity usage has gone up.

My old computer in the 90s was a Commodore Amiga which used around 15W of electricity. Now my PC has a 600W supply and uses around 500 of it.

Wait till we mostly have electric cars - the per caput usage will shoot up; whether there will be enough generation capacity remains to be seen.
