Krait Power Up – Crowdfunded Outlets

Module Concept Applied To Plugs

If you’ve ever wanted to build just the right powerstrip, but couldn’t, this might be for you.   And it comes in colors.

Proving there’s a crowdfunding thing for just about anything, Innfact has launched an Indiegogo campaign on January 15th for a snap-together puzzle like powerstrip called Krait.   It’s comprised of four main modules: the input source power piece, the AC outlet piece, a the DC power piece, and the Plug end piece. It supports four AC outlets (1 side angled), two USB-C, and two USB-A ports. Each puzzle like module piece can be detached and re-attached separately.  Total AC power supported up to 1650W, while the DC side can power up to 100W, which nicely covers most laptop requirements over USB-C.

It’s a fun idea brought to usually rather boring component.  Build one in different colors and it has a certain appeal for those that want a customizable and funky portable powerstrip.  It can be configured as a desk / floor sitter or as wall hanger. There’s even a bluetooth app which allows for control of the outlets and even set timers for active / disable.

They advertise the Krait as being engineered to help prevent electrically hazardous conditions through protection circuits, surge suppression, and auto shutdown features.
