Many Wall Plugs Fit in One Outlet (May, 1934)

This is actually a really good idea, though I think their claim of unlimited plugs in one outlet is a little optimistic. It would be really nice if powerbricks had outlets in them.

Many Wall Plugs Fit in One Outlet
DOUBLE and triple outlet electric plugs are no longer needed. A novel wall plug now available is of such a design that another plug can be inserted right on top of it. There is no limit to the number of extension cords that can be used on one outlet.

    No limit, aside from torsion and heat dissipation, anyway.

    Fluffy, see cyberguys.com for power strip liberators.

    Well, not *no* limit; the limit is determined by the current rating of the circuit the outlet is on, as well as the ratings of the individual plugs. Too low of a rating in one of the plugs would most likely lead to a fire, unless each plug has a fuse in it. Too low of a rating for the circuit would, of course, trip the breaker at the breaker box.

    “There is no limit to the number of extension cords that can be used on one outlet.”

    Well, it’s all fun and games until the whole mess overheats and burns your house down.

    This reminds me of modern Christmas lights. (and many blown fuses)
