Product Review – box portable power products with style


We are often asked to carry out product reviews, but as much as we love to try out new mobile products and accessories, it’s not always easy to find the time to write about them.  These products, by UK based design company, box , grabbed our attention however, as they are beautifully designed to complement  the contemporary connected lifestyle and add a touch of style to any home, car, office or handbag! They also come packaged in modern white boxes adorned with the colourful box logo and would make for tasteful techy gifts.

New Surge Smart and Car Smart

boxDesigned to compliment modern home and office interiors, box took inspiration from the latest desktop hardware in creating Surge Smart. Manufactured from a single billet of Aluminium, and available in both Silver/White and Black/Black, Surge Smart has been designed to protect hardware from the daily power fluctuations that can take place in homes and offices.

Underwritten by a £25,000 (€25,000) insurance policy, Surge Smart offers complete peace of mind for consumers concerned about protecting their valuable hardware from damage to sensitive microprocessors caused by power fluctuations.

With a 1m cord set, SurgeSmart sits comfortably on the desktop and can be wall mounted for convenience. 4 intelligent USB ports support desktop charging of mobile devices, automatically providing the correct charge to your device saving energy and protecting the battery within the device from a harmful overcharge.

This product feels really well made, looks smart and will really appeal to those who enjoy contemporary style in their home or office.

Available from Amazon for £34.99

Delivering an impressive 9.6A from an intelligent charge circuit, the box Car Smart has been designed to support multi device USB charging whilst on the move. The Car Smart has enough power to simultaneously charge up to 4 tablets, and an extra long 1.5m cord set can be used in both the front and rear of the vehicle. In recognizing both the domestic and commercial application of this product, box specified the CarSmart to work with both 12v and 24v circuits. A rubberised coating on the surface of the charger prevents damage to the car interior, and it’s compact footprint and contemporary styling compliments modern vehicle interiors. Available in both white/grey and black/grey.

I particularly love this pretty little pink portable tablet charger, which fits perfectly into my handbag!  Great for an on the go power solution when a plug socket isn’t at hand. Built with a Lithium Polymer battery, it’s both compact and portable. Intelligent USB ports take the guessing of which port to connect device to, whilst also providing an optimum charge to connected device. A 6000mAh cell provides enough power to charge a tablet 1.5 times or a smartphone up to 3 times. Dual USB ports support simultaneous charging of two connected devices.

Available from Amazon for £29.99
