Invisiplug on Shark Tank
Wood Surge Protectors - Episode 514 - 1-17-2014
|New Invisiplug Power Strip|
with Built-in USB Ports
Imagine that, a stylish protective power strip you actually incorporate with your decor rather than trying to tuck and hide away. Now depending on the colors of wood used in your home, office or wherever you have a power strip plugged in, Invisiplug has 3 wood grained colors to choose from including Light Natural, Medium Cherry and Dark Oak. Each Invisiplug power strip comes with six surge protected outlets along with 3 feet of cord. For the most part the Inviaplugs resembles most surge protectors on the market, but made to look like natural wood which can easily blend into the surroundings instead of looking like a foreign object.
Another kind of cool thing Invisiplug just added to their line-up is their wood grained power strips with built-in USB surge protective ports. Now THATS something new I've never heard about before and might be a good enough reason to replace at least some of the surge protectors already in use.
The standard Invisiplug retails for 15.99 which is in line with the ugly white ones you're probably using now. The upgraded power strips with the built-in USB ports retails for approx $25 each along with a higher 900 Joules rate which is double from the standard ones.
Invisiplug before Shark Tank Update:
The Invisiplugs already has national distribution with one of the biggest big box Home Improvement stores in the county, Lowe's. Now here's where this story gets interesting and makes you wonder why two successful products seen on the Shark Tank in back-to-back episodes are already selling very good at Lowe's. I could only imagine Lowe's absolutly loves all the attention they are receiving from the Shark Tank effect along with all this priceless publicity, but is there more to this story than meets the eye? Shark Tank Success Blog thinks so, and here's why.
Back in August of 2013 we learned we would have two new featured guest Sharks in season 5, billionaire's John Paul Dejornia and Steve Tisch. John Paul made his first very successful appearance when he invested in the Tree-T-Pee earlier this season. Now finally half way through the fifth season, Steve Tisch will make his debut as our newest Shark this Friday Night in episode 514. Steve Tisch's personal net worth is estimated way north of a billion dollars, but his Family's net worth is estimated over $21 billion. Care to guess where several billions of that came from? Why from investing in Lowe's and making it a household name of course. Hmm, a coincidence Lowe's is already carrying two successful Shark Tank products in two episodes in a row as Steve Tisch makes his debut, probably not. Even if Tisch decides not to invest in the Invisiplug or any product on the Show, His Family and the Lowe's Brand will still gain priceless publicity only the Shark tank Show can provide.
Now as far as Invisiplug is concerned, they do have a patent USD684119 for the ornamental design of a power strip with simulated wood surface. This could be a positive inside the Shark Tank, but does this cover all simulated wood used for making a decorative power strip? Either way it looks like Bryon O'Connell and Michael Barzman have first mover's advantage on a much more attractive power surge protector than anything else currently available.
