The CuBLOCK is a versatile power strip (which may test your arm strength)

Everyone needs a good power strip. And Kimwell’s CuBLOCK is a versatile, highly functional one. 

With the modular power strip, you can expand it as needed. CuBLOCK features detachable plug extensions that can accommodate sockets of different countries, as well as accessory plugs like a 45W USB Charger, sensor lamps, Bluetooth speaker, etc. 

Once the modules are plugged in, the power strip’s lock mechanism secures the modules with up to 20 pounds force to prevent accidental detachment. I can’t attest to the exact amount of force, but the modules are difficult to remove. Which does prevent them from being accidentally detached, but also makes them a pain to remove when you need to.

The CuBLOCK’s other features are less iffy. A safety switch shuts off when an overload occurs. The power strip allows you to keep cables organized with 90° adjustable plugs. And it’s available in a variety of cool colors.

However, the CuBLOCK’s impressive features come at a price. The retail price starts at US$129. Here are the power strip’s specs:
