FLIP Review: The British Plug Reinvented

The last time one of the projects I funded on Kickstarter arrived was a year ago, and that was the Myo. In truth, it has been sitting on my office desk for a while now and I rarely use it. Another project which I funded last year has finally arrived as well. It is the Flip Duo and Flip Quad by the guys from One Adaptr.

What does it do?

What it basically is, is a USB charging adapter which plugs into the socket. The duo has 2 USB ports whilst the quad has 4 USB ports. What made it unique is the way how it is folded when it isn’t in use, making the adapter quite slimming.

Thanks to it’s Kickstarter campaign, it comes with a set of stickers which you can don on the adapter to make it stand out a little more.

In Conclusion

Essentially, with a 4-port USB adapter now in my bag, I can remove my other USB adapters especially the Apple ones which are quite bulky. I like funding these type of tech campaigns on Kickstarter and I am overall quite satisfied with the quality of the product. What I liked about the campaign was that even though there were delays, the campaign creators constantly kept us updated with updates such as the manufacturing in China as well as where there were some delays due to production fault.

Stack is a fully extensible power strip with multiple modules for you to customise. Modules such as the standard AC power socket, surge protector modules, satellite surge protection and even USB power charging. Unfortunately, it is only available for US plugs at this point in time.
