Design

The design of the PowerPort 2 is great for the purpose of the wall charger. With just two ports, the wall charger is able to be small and is a curved rectangular size that’s perfect for fitting into nearly all bags for portable carrying. What makes the PowerPort 2 even more convenient for portability is the retractable plug, and when it’s folded, the wall charger becomes a simple cube.

A small amenity that comes with the wall charger is an LED charging indicator light that shows when charging is taking place to a device that’s connected to the wall charger. When the LED light is green, a device is being charged. When the LED light is Blue, nothing is being charged or all the devices have been fully charged.

Compact and convenient indicating technology.

Build

PowerPort 2 is a solidly built wall charger because there’s nothing about the wall charger that is unnecessary. The main components of the wall charger: The plug and the two USB charging outputs are placed in predictable areas. The retractable plug avoids damage to the plug if it’s being carried for traveling reasons.

The size and the shape of the PowerPort 2 wall charger is where it excels the most. The shape has curved corners, this means that if the wall charger were to fall, there would be less chance of damage because with curved corners there’s less force taken. The curves on the wall charger dampen the shock taken from a fall and can make the wall charger simply roll to avoid damage.
