Just when you thought you will be safe in your hotel room, where presumably, power source will be readily available to recharge or power your multiple gadgets, you realized that there’s only one useable power outlet. Sounds familiar? Most people who travelled often would probably nodding their heads in agreement. Instead of calling the front desk for a power strip (not a chance if it’s a budget hotel), or unplugging the bedside lamp’s power, you will probably wish you have the TRIX power strip. While power strip sounds simple enough, TRIX is more than just power strip; it fits in the palm of your hand, which means it is totally portable and you can bring it along with you when you travel, and it is ergonomic and aesthetically-pleasing, making it user-friendly and looks good even if you have to have a power strip on your desk.
Looking like a plump ‘X’ from the top, this nifty contraption provides three AC outlets for your AC-powered devices or appliances, such as your laptop, table lamp, or perhaps, hair dryer for examples, and one dual USB charging ports for topping up your USB-powered gadgets. The ‘fat X’ design allows ease of sharing of power when placed in the center of your work top and a 3.3 or 5 feet long cable affords flexibility for both indoor and traveling purposes. Basically, this is a must-have accessory if you travel with loads of gadgets and it goes without saying that with it, you can finally stop worrying about how many outlets your hotel room has.
TRIX Portable Power Strip is currently on a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter where you will be able to pre-order one for as low as $45 AUD, or around 35 American dollars. However if you miss the early bird offer, it will run you back at a slightly pricer $52 AUD (roughly US$40). As always, whether if you will see TRIX at your doorstep in September depends on the eventual crowdfunding status. Keep going for a product pitch video.
