I have been working online for the past seven years and I have always been frustrated with one of my most daily-used products: power sockets. Most of the time, there aren’t enough power outlets or sockets at public places, but I sadly have to charge multiple things at once whenever I work – my phone, my laptop and my tablet – especially when I work at a coffee shop for hours on end. Some coffee shops don’t even allow bulky plugs to be plugged in next to each other due to the design of their sockets.
Fortunately, a group of graduates of the Industrial Design from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, noticed this frustration, too. As such, they have introduced the PowerCube: a compact power socket that prevents plugs from blocking each other. Needless to say: they have saved my life!
If most of the sockets that you deal with on a daily basis are the basic ones that you find on a wall, you can get the PowerCube Original USB and charge devices from the top, the bottom and the sides of it with ease.
The PowerCube Extended USB is perfect for you if you need a long extension cord because its cable is 1.5m long. You’ll be surprised how utterly convenient a long extension cord can be, especially if you’re sitting at one end of the table and want to be able to browse through your phone while charging.
Since my friends and I work together at coffee shops a lot of the time, they have expressed gratitude for this one, as well!
The best part about the PowerCube Extended USB is that it also has a unique docking system, so you can mount it anywhere and charge with ease – whether horizontally, vertically or upside down. Its dock is easy to tape onto any flat surface, like the bottom of any table; and the tape that comes with it is removable, so you can move it to another table whenever you need to.
These gadgets are even better because they come with USB ports that are even compatible for tablets, so you can charge them directly from the PowerCube. Plus, it comes with a two-year warranty.
The best part is that both cubes come with a modular design to expand the number of sockets to your needs, so you can stick them next to each other. However, do take note that the combined maximum power consumption may not exceed 2500W.
You don’t have to worry about safety when it comes to the PowerCubes, either, because PowerCube products were thoroughly tested and certified under the Bureau of Product Standards. They are also convenient for moms or anyone who has kids at home because all of the plugs are grounded and childproof. Along with this, Powercube has won the Red Dot Design award which is an internationally recognized quality seal. The best products receive the Red Dot: Best of the Best award.
So, what are you waiting for? Add some ease, convenience and comfort to your working life with the PowerCubes of your choice.
