ALL ABOUT THE UC 01 USB DESKTOP CHARGER
The UC 01 USB Desktop Charger is a brilliant solution for mobile device charging. Managing endless chargers and adapters is a hassle and multi-ports often mean longer charging time. The compact UC 01 reduces clutter at the workstation and can recharge several devices rapidly and simultaneously.
The UC 01 is designed by Jasper Morrison. Says he, “More and more devices are now powered via USB, yet most computers and laptops only offer one or two ports. Not to mention the classic hotel scenario: even if you fnd the right electric plug for the USB cable, you can only charge a single device. Punkt.’s new USB multi-port charger provides easy access charging and is designed for one-handed operation.”
The UC 01 is expertly designed to look good however you position it, and is perfectly weighted to stay frmly in place. With the UC 01 you can charge up to three devices simultaneously and its handily positioned USB Ports make it easy and effcient to use. The UC 01 comes with two power cords for charging from different distances and works with iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, and most other USB powered devices. The high power capacity of the UC 01 reduces charging time and its quality materials ensure long lasting performance and durability. The UC 01 is available in a range of versions to comply with the different power supply standards of a wide selection of countries. The Punkt. UC 01 is made in Italy.
