Problems That Need Solving

Storage Theory Founder and Inventor, Gerald BeranekLike most inventions Power Perch was created out of necessity. Storage Theory President, entrepreneur, and serial inventor, Gerald Beranek, received a rechargeable beard trimmer (yes, the one in the pictures) from his mother-in-law as a Christmas gift. After getting it set up on his bathroom counter he realized there wasn’t a good place to keep it charged that didn’t take up already-in-demand counter space. He searched for an easy space-saving solution that didn’t require him to add holes to his bathroom walls, but couldn't find anything. As a mechanical & manufacturing engineer from the University of Iowa with a passion for developing and manufacturing simple innovative products to solve life's problems, he decided to create his own product.

Power Perch Outlet Shelf Was Born

So Gerald created the Power Perch outlet shelf. It uses the electrical outlet to mount to the wall allowing him to keep his beard trimmer off the counter and close to the outlet for charging. After using his 3D printer to make his newly designed “charging shelf” for the bathroom, he discovered the outlet shelf could be used all around the home as a charging station to keep all of his rechargeable electronics off of the floor and counter tops. The Power Perch was born.

Today we manufacture the Power Perch outlet shelf in our facilities in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but we still use that 3D printer for custom orders. Get a Power Perch shelf that fits your outlet perfectly and keep your counter tops free of your electronics and other small items.
