...No, this is not a setup for a joke.

In Israel we have gadgets like this one:

It's basically like a power strip, except it doesn't have a cable. You plug it into a lone power socket and now you have 2. It also comes in varieties where it gives you 3 or 4 power outlets.

Is there a name for this device in English?

  • I would call it a 'double adapter'. – brhans May 15 '17 at 11:55

'Receptacle multiplier' works on Google.
