I’m a huge fan of power strips and surge protectors, and have one in nearly every room in my house. I’m just not a fan of their bulky design and footprint. Enter the Accell Power Cutie, a small yet powerful mini surge protector with plenty of USB and AC charging ports. It’s perfect for the home office, bedroom, home theater room or living room, and even makes a great travel companion (when the hotel room skimps on power outlets).
The Power Cutie isn’t much larger than a tennis ball, but it’s packed with great features: three surge protected AC outlets (1800-watt max) that allow charging multiple devices with 540 Joules surge protection and four USB Type A ports (5V/4.8A/24W) for smart USB charging. The heavy-duty power cord is 6 feet, providing ample slack.
What about the surge protection? Glad you asked. The Power Cutie features advanced X3 MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) technology that provides the safest surge protection by detecting surge conditions and directing excess energy away from equipment through the electrical grounding system. The MOV’s are encased in a fireproof material, fully containing the heat created by the power surge and eliminating the threat of fire. This advanced X3 MOV technology fully protects connected equipment from hazard during an abnormal or catastrophic surge event and provides longer protection lifespan than regular MOV.
Via a bright green indicator light, the Power Cutie lets you know when it’s powered up and protecting your devices.
