BedPower Review

The Bed Power strip is a product that is a little outside of my normal expertise, but it’s made by a mattress foundation company that I’m familiar with, Forever Foundations. It was originally an accessory to their “Store More” foundation, but they made a version which works universally.

It’s an ingenious little power strip for your bed frame, to make it easier to plug in things like a bedside lamp, your cell phone, or laptop. It’s cable management for your bed. They sent me a free BedPower to review, and it’s really useful.

Features and Benefits

This is a fairly straightforward product. It’s a power strip that’s been optimized for bedroom use. Here are some of the features that optimize it for the bedroom:

BedPower 2.0

The BedPower comes with 2 AC outlets and 2 USB ports

  • Two AC outlets and 2 USB ports. This is enough to plug in a lamp, alarm clock, cell phone, and tablet, but not so big that it takes up a lot of room.
BedPower on a metal frame

The BedPower clips onto any standard angle-iron frame

  • Clips to attach to various frames. There is a built-in clip that attaches to any standard angle-iron frame, plus two extension clips that can clip onto thicker wooden or metal frames (or even things like computer desks)
BedPower on a wood frame

The BedPower also comes with clips to attach to thicker wooden frames (or even things like desks)

  • 90 degree angle plug. The plug stays close against the wall, with the cord coming from the bottom, so if your outlets are behind your mattress (like mine in my guest bedroom), the cord won’t be folded in half or the plug pulled out of the wall.

  • 8 foot cord. This allows it to clip where and how you want at any reasonable distance from the outlet.

My Thoughts

The Bed Power strip is a neat little product that I’m surprised I haven’t seen done before, because it seems so obvious in retrospect. Pretty much everybody uses cell phones, tablets, and/or laptops in bed, and this is aside from the typical bedroom lamps. Old-school power strips aren’t really designed with bedroom use in mind, and this one is. If you share the bed with someone, consider getting 2: one for each side of the bed.

I feel I’d be remiss if I didn’t add in one objection: sleep experts say you shouldn’t be using cell phones or computers in the bedroom. Cell phone use before bed can make it more difficult to fall asleep. However, most people don’t follow that advice (and for the record, neither do I, even though I know it’s not good). So, with that in mind, if you are going to plug in your cell phone in your bedroom, like most people do, the Bed Power strip is a good, fairly inexpensive, way to accomplish it.
