Kensington System Saver for my Apple II

Here is something I never got as a kid, and probably would never had spent any money on, but I found them a little common when you find an Apple II for sale somewhere. The "System Saver" is combined cooling fan/surge protector for the Apple II; it became an instant hit with 200,000 units sold.

I am not sure this is really needed in term of cooling (Jobs was a huge fan of fanless, so the machine was designed to work without it, but I like the extra plugs to connect a monitor, one less cable to run to the wall and an easy on off button.

Here some pics of my system saver
