Allocacoc Powercube: reinvention elementary
In our swift-flowing time it is quite difficult to find niches for products which tens years exist in the market already, apparently. And still there are people who diligently find defects in quite ordinary things and with appreciable enthusiasm try to eliminate them. Today it will be a question of tees and extension pieces for electric sockets which tried to bring to perfection. So, Allocacoc PowerCube.
What are these most «nutritious cubes»? As the official site of the company says, these are the smallest multidemountable splitters of power supply which only can be found in the market of similar devices. Let’s consider them slightly in more detail.
The first device — an elementary splitter of the socket, capable to provide to the user five standard nests of a food instead of one.
Simple plastic cube, very densely and accurately collected and not especially subject to damages when falling (checked). Any complaints in use did not arise, and it would be possible to recommend quietly it for trips, if not the second device in a line of the company …
The second device just intends for travelers. PowerCube ReWirable USB possesses the replaceable tip, and in a set there are four forks options by means of which it is possible запитать four devices via standard sockets in Great Britain, Japan, Australia, America — practically worldwide. And it is possible to take a classical three-contact cable of a food from the printer or the computer and to receive even some extension piece.
Yes, by the way, at the name USB is present with an ulterior motive. One side of a cube is taken away under two ports USB, intended for a charging, for example, mobile devices. There is no need to take with superfluous power units — ports give out 2100 мА at 5V that will allow to charge even the most "gluttonous" tablets or cameras.
In this PowerCube provided even a place under a safety lock, in some countries obligatory to application in similar devices — the attention to similar trifles really leaves pleasant impression.
The third device — the same PowerCube USB, only with the built-in cord of a food of one and a half meter. Time the tip not replaceable, and the name was replaced with ReWirable with Extended. In fact, the simple extension piece, but, besides, with some interesting additions.
Four euro sockets and two ports USB remained on a place that should please.
And here in a set added an interesting plastic cap for one of sockets which allows to fix this PowerCube, for example, under a table-top. The decision quite interesting even if to connect to this splitter complete set of power units (laptop, external store, monitor) — keeps Extended USB reliably.
The cap fastens to a table on flypapers, on a cable of the extension piece it is possible to find plastic fastening for a screw.
Well and resembling it is necessary to mention that moment that these most elementary devices were noted by very prestigious Red Dot 2014 Design Award. In Russia Allocacoc PowerCube it is possible to get in shop according to this reference. Also it is necessary to pay attention to an official site of the company and their page in the social Facebook network.
These advanced extension pieces and splitters were pleasant to us, especially that are intended for trips — additional sockets for a charging of gadgets in our century superfluous never will be.
