Got a new power strip, I detect a very faint burning smell kind of distinct when I stick my nose near it, 2 cm away. The smell is there whether it's connected or not, but amplifies when its working. I don't think that smell was there before and I've been using it for 2 weeks. The brand is Brennenstuhl, from Germany 3m long cable. It's like 20$, I connect desktop pc on it.
