The first hidden extension cord specially designed to use in-house! Integrated usb charger for iPad, iPhone, Smartphone etc

zagg: 'Plugbook seeks to bring elegance to the world of power strips'

technabob‘ This cleverly designed outlet box is designed to look like a book, and hides away ..’

thegadeteer: ‘ I like the idea a lot because I’m always trying to remember where I put my unused powerstrip.’

gadetsin: the power strip features a unique book shaped appearance, and comes with a built-in cable organizer.’ 

3rings.designerpages: ‘...making it the easiest, most hassle-free way to clean up after a charging session.’ 

cult of mac: ‘ It’s neat, ingenious and safe’ 

trendhunter: ' Simple and neat, how power cords were meant to be kept.'

My goal was to create a little extension cord to use for small in-house jobs. Like charging your laptop, drilling a hole, connecting a lamp etc.
I wanted it to be just there, in the middle of your living room without being obstructive and with a good working cable. If you need it, you now where it is and you can just take it, without a hustle.

The plugbook is made in the shape of a book which hides itself between your other books. When you need it, just take it out and pull the cord. Simple as that! Inside the book is 10 feet/3 meter of cable. We also added an extra power socket and 2 USB ports to easily charge your iPad, iPhone, Smartphone, Camera and many other devices. And when you don’t need it anymore you press the button and the cord automatically rewinds itself (like in a vacuum cleaner). And just put it back on the bookshelf ready to go for next time.

Basically on any place with a power socket. It's made for those little jobs such as feeding your laptop, power your tools, plugging in the iron, charge your camera/smartphone/tablet and probably much more!

Before getting involved with Kickstarter I wanted to make sure the project was completely ready. I looked for a company to further develop my plugbook and found Designcord. Designcord is a Dutch company specialized in plugs, sockets and specially auto-rewind cables. The perfect match! Together we made sure the plugbook is ready for production, including matching all safety regulations and certification requirements. We made several technical drawings and a 3D print to make sure it all works properly. Therefore, the produced model will look exactly the same as these images. 

We have one special option, called color suggestion. We would like you to think of the new plugbook color! The color which is suggested by most of you will actually be produced. When the project is closed we will send you an e-mail with a list of colors to vote for. The color with the most votes wins and will be produced. If you don't like it you can just pick to the black or white version.
