Huntkey has announced the SMC127C surge protector power strip that comes with a USB Type-C (or USB-C) charging port — a sign of the growing popularity of this port in devices. It also sports 12 US-type AC sockets and a USB-A port to offer lots of charging options.
Supporting the power delivery charging protocol, the USB-C port is compatible with USB-C powered devices. It is able to detect the device and supply power with the fastest possible charging speed. Test data has shown that it can supply a power output of up to 18W.
The USB-A port can supply a power of 5V2.4A, making it suitable for charging the likes of smartphones, power banks and tablets.
Of the 12 US sockets, 10 are traditional sockets for normal style plugging while two are spaced wider to accommodate bulkier plugs.
All sockets are surge-protected and rated at 2390 joules to protect charging devices against voltage fluctuations, surges and spikes.
The SMC127C comes with a six-foot heavy duty extension cord, and two keyhole mounting slots on its back. Its housing and the cord are made from fire-prevention materials and ETL and FCC listed.
