Wireless and USB charging with pop-up socket from Knightsbridge

Knightsbridge launch integrated two-in-one pop-up wireless USB charging socket...

The USB charging socket provides both convenience and practicality.

The proliferation of hand-held, wearable and other small devices has resulted in a demand for USB charging sites that is almost limitless. To help meet that demand, Knightsbridge – one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of wiring devices, accessories and lighting – has launched an integrated two-in-one pop-up wireless USB charging socket that is ideal for mounting in kitchen worktops, desks, communal workplace areas and home offices.

Sitting flush with surfaces and finished in brushed chrome, the pop-up charger frees up wall sockets and reduces the need for charging wires. It supports both Type-A USB charging and Type-C, which is compatible with QC3.0 (Quick Charge) and PD FASTCHARGE*.

The USB charging socket provides both convenience and practicality, offering a two-in-one solution, with wireless pad charging for simple easy use and the pop-up FASTCHARGE option if needing a boost in a hurry (up to 50% in 30 minutes for compatible devices).

The Type-A outlet delivers 5V DC to a maximum of 2A, while the Type-C provides between 5 and 12V DC. When FASTCHARGE is activated the alternative Type-A port will output at a maximum of  5V DC 1A. Total output is a maximum of 4A when both outlets are in use. The top wireless pad has an effective charging distance between 2 and 5mm and is compatible with Qi wireless charging. Finally, a 230V 50-60Hz plug-in power supply is included with the unit.
