PowerCube / Electric-plug adaptor

PowerCube
PowerCube

The design of many plug-adaptors means that large plugs can cover adjacent sockets, making them unusable. PowerCube solves this problem by arranging the sockets, one on each side of the cube, to prevent large plugs from covering adjacent sockets. Each socket is designed to rotate through 360º, meaning plugs of all shapes and sizes can be accommodated easily.

Conventional adaptors are also often large, unattractive and not particularly well made. PowerCube, at only 100mm x 100mm x 100mm, is compact and attractive. It is robustly constructed from recycled, and recyclable plastic, offering a long initial life-span and sustainability.
