With increasing number of gadgets and smartphones in our lives, it gets difficult for us to carry along as many chargers. There are many-a-times when we tend to forget our smartphone chargers at home or office and there are some other times when your friend or family member borrows your charger. This leaves you with no option but to dig out another spare one or hunt for a power bank (if you have one). To eliminate the issues and make your travel lighter, Zebronics has launched its first power strip with an option to charge a smartphone, tablet or any device that needs to be charges via USB.

Power Grip, a Zebronics product by the model number ZEB-U2 4PS, is a simple multi-socket power extension strip. It can be used for your computer or TV system at home or office. Apart from powering four independent electronic equipment systems, it also accommodates two gadgets for charging. So you don’t need to carry your charger anymore. Simply plug in your device’s USB cable and let it charge.

 

The Power Grip features four international multi-socket points to accommodate up to four electrical or electronic equipments. Be it a computer, monitor, Printer, TV or alike, the power strip is equipped with international sockets to accommodate power plugs from different countries. Each socket is also equipped with its own power switch so that you can individually power on or off the equipment. Each socket has an accommodating power LED to notify the power status. The Power Grip also has a reset switch, which automatically triggers in case of short circuits and overloads.  

 

  

As far as the quality of the Power Grip is concerned, Zebronics has managed to keep it high. The power strip is encased in a good quality, tough plastic housing with wall mounting provisions on the rear. The exterior has a matte-finished surface. It is available in two colour variants—black and white.
