    Looks pretty cool, but it is not MFI certified, so that would be a no for me; especially for multiple devices. Brown out or spike could destroy several thousand dollars worth of equipment at best and start a huge fire at worst.

    so by not being MFI certified, it would be a similar risk to buying a cheap cable that could work but could als catch fire? Is there anything about the specs that could be looked at to determine how safe it might be?

    Thanks.

    I just use a power strip with the adapters plugged in, routed up through a little hole I drilled in my nightstand.
    Just like this one:

    I use this one under my computer desk to connect five macs, Zenbook and a desk lamp.

    I still use the Apple provided power adapters and cables. Bought an extra power adapter and cable for office, routed it up through the desk.
