Thanks for taking some time to read my review of the PowerCube Rewirable, an interchangeable power adapter that you can use virtually anywhere.
This is part of a review series I’m doing in partnership with eBags. As I finish reviewing each item I’ll be giving it away, either through my blog or social media. Stay tuned for future reviews and giveaways.
What’s In The Box?
The PowerCube comes with a power adapter that allows you to plug in 4 standard power cords and charge two devices via USB. You’ll also receive 4 travel adapters that allow the unit to be plugged into virtually any outlet around the world.
The device has a capacity of 16 amps. You can daisy chain more than one PowerCube as long as you don’t exceed 16 amps of connected power needs.
The better question is what’s not in the box? I was really surprised there was no cable to plug this into a power outlet. Your only option as configured is to plug the unit directly into a wall outlet or other receptacle. The PowerCube website points out that you may have an extra power cord lying around from an old computer or monitor that will work just fine with their adapter.
You might. Heck, I might. But I didn’t really want to spend time looking for it. I did find the appropriate IEC power cord on Amazon for $7.95. To get the max charging capacity out of the device, you’ll want a cord that’s rated to 14 AWG, which equates to 15 amps. There are a bunch of 18 AWG cords on Amazon and Monoprice which equates to about 10 amps of capacity.
How Did It Work?
Other than the power cord issue, I really liked the device. The receptacles on the device are very sturdy, easy to plug something into. While it was easy to remove a plug, nothing fell out while I was using it. Swapping out the travel adapters is super easy as well.
Both of the USB outlets on the device are 2.1 amp outlets. That means quick charging for things like iPads and iPhones (or anything else you can plug in there). I like that both are rated at 2.1, where some other devices I’ve had only offer one high-speed charging USB outlet.
Worth The Price?
The PowerCube Rewirable Travel Adapter is on sale right for $23.96 on eBags’ website. I think that’s probably a reasonable price for a travel adapter that also doubles as an international adapter. The regular price is listed at $29.95. I’d likely pass on it at full price or at least look for more affordable alternatives.
How Can You Win It?
