The argument may be the plug and cable socket are prone to heating (I've
often found them warm.) The socket in a strip is likely to make a lower
resistance connection and is contained in metal. Furthermore, it's more
likely to not be left near conbustables.

Greetings,
This has worked for me too. A long good quality cord
installed on a quality outlet strip. Funny thing here is, no extension
cords, but if you
plug it into an outlet strip, its okay! No matter how long the
cord is! You got to just smile.
Everything comes down to knowing how the system works and
then just work within the system.
All the Best,
