Trying to put more electronics in a tight corner and running out of power outlets? ezGear has a solution, and it comes in a compact package.

The company announced Monday at CES its newest wall mount power expander, called the ezSpace UFO.

Taking the shape of a flying object, the ezSpace UFO is a six-outlet plug expander with built-in 1050 Joule surge protection that provides space for a large plug or transformer on each outlet.

The ezSpace Wall Mount UFO plugs directly into the power outlet on your wall and provides the same six outlets standard on other models. The device features an LED indicator and a reset button on the front (to be used in case of a surge when the device shuts down).

In the middle, the ezSpace UFO also houses a screw for you to secure it to the wall. This way, it will stay in place even with multiple large transformers plugged in.

Personally, I'd like one of these for my home office so I can decommission the existing power extender that has a humongous cable. Unfortunately, the device is not available until the second quarter of 2009.
