Power Cube Extended USB
£18 Manufacturer Allocacoc, allocacocshop.com
4 The Allocacoc Power Cube sounds like something from an Avengers film, but it’s really just a variation on the oldfashioned power extension lead. It includes four mains sockets on a 1.5m lead, and its compact design means you can easily sit it on or beside your desk within easy reach. The Power Cube is also two USB ports (5V/2.1A output) for charging devices such as an iPhone or Apple Watch. It can charge an iPad as well, although it might be a bit slow as its power output isn’t quite as high as Apple’s official 12W charger. Cliff Joseph
The compact design of the Power Cube makes it a handy option if you have lots of devices that need charging.
