Module Concept Applied To Plugs

If you’ve ever wanted to build just the right powerstrip, but couldn’t, this might be for you.   And it comes in colors.

Proving there’s a crowdfunding thing for just about anything, Innfact has launched an Indiegogo campaign on January 15th for a snap-together puzzle like powerstrip called Krait.   It’s comprised of four main modules: the input source power piece, the AC outlet piece, a the DC power piece, and the Plug end piece. It supports four AC outlets (1 side angled), two USB-C, and two USB-A ports. Each puzzle like module piece can be detached and re-attached separately.  Total AC power supported up to 1650W, while the DC side can power up to 100W, which nicely covers most laptop requirements over USB-C.

It’s a fun idea brought to usually rather boring component.  Build one in different colors and it has a certain appeal for those that want a customizable and funky portable powerstrip.  It can be configured as a desk / floor sitter or as wall hanger. There’s even a bluetooth app which allows for control of the outlets and even set timers for active / disable.

They advertise the Krait as being engineered to help prevent electrically hazardous conditions through protection circuits, surge suppression, and auto shutdown features.
