MOS Reach is a simple new power solution from MOS, a company that has previously released products like the magnetic MOS and MOS Menos, designed to organize cables in an intuitive way.
MOS Reach combines a three-prong power outlet and dual USB ports with a three-foot cable and a slim profile that is easy to mount on walls and surfaces, relocating power outlets that are inconveniently placed behind and under furniture.
Using adhesive, the MOS Reach can be stuck to a wall or on top of a desk, making it easier to charge iOS devices, Macs, and other electronics. It is designed to be flexible, bending and twisting around "any kind of furniture or obstruction" and it also includes magnets and MOS cable ties to keep cables attached when not plugged into a device.
- Reach gives you easy access to power outlets that are otherwise obstructed by furniture--no more crawling under desks or shimmying behind dressers to charge your devices.
- Reach has been designed to be as unobtrusive as possible and its compact size ensures that it's never in the way whether you use it on your desk, your nightstand, or your wall.
- Reach consolidates your power outlets and USB wall adapters into an attractive moveable all-in-one power solution.
- Reach helps you cut down on cable clutter by making clever use of Neodymium magnets in conjunction with MOS cable ties to keep out-of-use cables out of the way until you need them.
MOS Reach is able to charge laptops with its power port, and its two USB ports have enough capacity (3.1 amps) to charge the iPad and the iPhone. The cable is encased in a soft-touch TPE jacket that is softer than the PVC typically used, according to MOS.
The MOS Reach is available in both black and white for $25 for the first 800 backers, with prices going up to $30 after that. The MOS Reach is expected to ship in January of 2015.

Yah, seems to be a glamourized extension cord on the surface. But the attention to small details, like the handy magnets to keep cords tidy, seem to separate it from the alternatives. There's always room for incremental improvements to products in the marketplace, and that seems to be the angle that MOS is going for.
Are these not readily available or am I missing something???
It's a USB port. If it's following USB specs, it should be fine.
It's not sticky adhesive that leaves residue. It is using 3M Command strips that are meant to be used on walls and removed without leaving anything behind. They are pretty good for the task.
