PowerCube Remote: evolution of extension pieces
The allocacoc company about which production we told almost a year ago, continued to be engaged in all last year the favourite business — improved the tees and extension pieces (the most usual, electric) and as a result created PowerCube Remote. What is such and why it is necessary — read below.
If you look at the previous products allocacoc, will see that differences at a product to which this text is devoted, in fact, are minimum, but there is one addition which seemed to us really interesting.
PowerCube Extended Remote — the one-and-a-half-meter chetyryokhrozetochny extension piece with the large orange switch (that in the previous products allocacoc lacked) and the radio signal receiver. It outwardly not to see, by itself, but to something this word of "Remote" to the name added?
And here it is necessary to pay attention to small packing which is applied to this PowerCube. There is a small compact switch which for the work does not demand batteries and works thus at least within the apartment. Batteries it is not required for the reason that functionally the PowerRemote button repeats a piezoelement of a lighter or the Soviet small lamp "Bug". The button goes quite hardly and works only after some effort.
But the mass of the spent batteries will not litter our planet — of it in allocacoc are proud most of all. Well and margin of safety of PowerRemote will suffice. That is healthy — it is possible this button though with itself to drag in a pocket though on a wall to paste, though to a parquet.
In a set to PowerCube Extended Remote added the acquaintance on the previous devices a 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 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.
To think up application to this device in real life it is quite easy: it is possible to disconnect at once, for example, a multimedia rack if even the spark of Standby strongly disturbs you. It is possible to switch off lighting or electrodevices in kitchen before leaving. A pack of chargers for smartphones, besides, it is possible to deprive at once of a food — speak, they even in "time off" something is active for some reason consume. At our office this PowerCube at once placed in studio — at once, directly from a threshold, to include and disconnect light necessary for any shootings it appeared really surprisingly conveniently, and it is not necessary to bypass all racks and to click food toggle-switches.
In principle, the PowerCube Remote system is scaled and can be added as additional tees and extension pieces with Remote support, and switches in order that or from different places of a room to switch off one point of a food, or one button to disconnect at once everything indoors. Considered model of 30 conventional units (dollars or euro — depends on the country) costs, the tee without the extension piece will cost 25 dollars/euros, the button — in the same 10 units. Yes, the course in a year changed considerably, but less interesting from this PowerCube did not become. Let even only in the theory.
