CHICAGO May 09, 2019 — Tripp Lite, a global manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has made it practical to provide AC outlets and USB charging ports for multiple users in meeting rooms and shared workspaces. The two newest Protect It!® surge protectors are portable home and office solutions with placement flexibility.
The surge protectors place outlets and charging ports at desk level, reducing reliance on hard-to-access wall outlets or inconvenient power strips on the floor. As portable solutions, the surge protectors allow meetings to move beyond conference rooms that have built-in power boxes. Any table with access to a single wall outlet can become a conference table, allowing attendees to plug in laptops and other mobile devices.
The new U-shaped model, the TLP648USBC, has a spring-loaded clamp to fit surfaces up to 2.5 inches thick, including desks, tables and cubicle partitions. This surge protector has six NEMA 5-15R outlets, two USB-A charging ports (4.8A shared) and a USB-C charging port (3A) in a convenient, space-saving configuration.
The new power cube model, the TLP366CUBEUSBB, has a compact three-inch cube form factor with a removable USB wall charger. The base has three NEMA 5-15R outlets and two USB-A ports (2.4A shared). The removable wall charger has four USB-A ports (4.8A shared) and its NEMA 1-15P input plug connects to the top outlet on the base. Perfect for mobile applications, the wall charger can be used separately from the base with any compatible wall outlet.
“The ability to power and charge mobile devices is essential, both at home and at the office,” said Karenann Brow, Director of Product Marketing for Surge, Power Strips and Display Mounts. “Tripp Lite’s new portable surge protectors make it convenient to bring outlets and USB ports to almost any desk or table, essentially creating a conference area for multiple users.”
