It’s been a few years since I have reviewed an Accell product, and I am back to reviewing the Powramid once again. This is the Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station, and it is a sequel better than the original.
I believe that the original was called the Powramid because its shape resembled a pyramid. I believe that worked well because you know how certain plug-ins are big these days? However, the new Powramid Air is more of a discus. It is not totally flat, but it can hold a lot of big plug-ins (six), as well as two USB ports.
There is a six-foot power cord, and a scratch-resistant base. There is an odd on-off power button like right in the middle. I hope that won’t get triggered by accident and shut off the whole thing.
So if you are looking for a surge protector that is pretty good with 1080 Joules of surge protection, then head on over to the Accell Cables site and get the Powramid Air in white or black.
Perhaps I spoke to soon when I said that the GreenGenius was the king of all surge protectors. You can read the article that I wrote on that if you want to see those features, but the Powramid has quite a lot of cool stuff on it as well.
As you can see, the Powramid is set up like a traditional surge protector with six outlets. The difference, as you can see, is that it is circular. This means that it can handle all kinds of cords, unlike traditional ones where the outlet holes are too close together.
Another bonus is that it is green. Let’s say you are charging a handful of smartphones or tablets on the Powramid. Thanks to its Power Stop technology, the Powramid will stop bringing power once the device has reached capacity. That means you are going to save some money on your power bill and run less risk of overcharging your mobiles.
Another feature is the X3 MOV technology which is the safest surge conditions, reacting by directing excess energy away from the equipment through the electrical grounding system. All this, and two USB ports.
Yeah, this is another fine Accell product that can be purchased on their website for a low price of $34.99.
