You mean something like:

10 outlets, (5 duplex outlets side by side). (II) (II) (II) (II) (II)
15' cord (II) (II) (II) (II) (II)

I've been able to fit 10 smaller wall warts on a single strip, or
6 large wall warts, plus 4 cords.

Belkin F9D1000-15 (I've found these at Home Depot, but not on the
Belkin website)

Waber UL800CB-15

Waber/Tripp-Lite also has the long (4-6') strips with cord/plug.
