A portable power station for any situation.

Around our house, we try very hard to be wire-free. That ends up being an impossible task when it comes to recharging devices and/or providing AC power. We have plenty of traditional power strips available and I assure you, they are used to their fullest potential. But sometimes it would be great to have a smaller, more portable power option that can either take the place of some of those bulkier strips or even travel with. ANKER has a great solution with the PowerPort Cube. The cube-shaped power solution features 3 AC outlets and 3 USB charging ports.

DETAILS

The PowerPort Cube is not your traditional power strip at all. As mentioned above, it is cube-shaped so that larger power adapters have plenty of room without bumping into another large power outlet. The cable is durable and can withstand pressure thanks to its tough coating. The exterior of the charger is flame-retardant and can withstand up to 1382º F. It’s travel-ready since it’s only about the size of a tennis ball and its rounded-corners make it an easy fit in any luggage or carrying case. The cube features overload protection for your devices, too. The cube comes with a short user guide that includes safety and power specifications. An adhesive strip is also shipped with it so that you can affix the device to a desk or other flat surface. The base of the cube does have some very small feet (just enough to elevate it off of a surface), but it’s a smooth plastic bottom so it will slide without the adhesive or other non-slip material. The three USB ports are equipped with PowerIQ, ANKER’s world-famous smart charging technology. It’s designed to deliver a high-speed charge. The PowerPort is backed by ANKER’s 18-month warranty and support system. The PowerPort Cube is available in either black or white.
