Answer: yes, but it is not recommended.

Yes, it is technically possible to connect one power strip to another, but this is really to be avoided. Each power strip accepts limited power. For your safety, you should not exceed this power. Especially since there are commercially available multiple sockets containing up to 15 sockets, accessible for small sums, which will certainly meet your specific needs. Then it all depends on the type of electrical devices you plan to plug into it. If you connect devices that consume little or that you do not use frequently, the risks of short circuit are rather limited. On the other hand, if you connect devices that consume a lot of energy, such as washing machines or dishwashers, the risk increases.
