iClever Delivers the Smartest Desktop Charging Station

The iClever Power Strip Tower Surge Protector is a multi-purpose desktop charging station for phones, printers, laptops, and other electronics.

The tower comes with 8 AC grounded 3-pin ports, 4 USB smart ports, and a 6.5ft extension cable. The ports are vertically aligned with a bottom and top layer with all USB ports located on the side. Additionally each AC outlet is spaced out (2.4 inches) for oversized adapters that won't cover other outlets.

The tower is rated 1250 watts at 125 volts and can simultaneously charge up to 12 devices. The USB ports top off at 22.5 watts, which is good enough for most Apple & Android smartphones.

iClever has been a favorite brand of mine with a slew of affordable, multi-functional products and the Power Strip Tower is another solid addition.

iClever Power Tower: 5 Best Features

The power strip tower is very consumer friendly with a variety of useful features that are well worth the purchase.

iClever's Smartest Pros

  • 8 AC + 4 USB Ports
  • Multi-Safety Protections
  • Overload Auto Shut Off
  • Intelligent Recognition Technology
  • Dual Switch Controls

8 AC + 4 USB Ports

I own a ton of electronics and there's never enough ports for them all, so having 12-in-1 is a welcome change.

Currently I have four phone chargers inserted including 2 USB ports, but I've had up to 10 devices going at once and it's been super convenient. The AC ports are 3-pronged for all types of inputs and I love that their grounded for safety purposes.

Given the product is rated at 1250 watts I'm trying not to overload the system but I haven't had any issues with small to medium energy consumption electronics like phones or laptops.

Multi-Safety Protections

The surge tower is CE & FCC certified and it comes with overload, short-circuit, over voltage, overheat, and power surge defenses.

The surge protection is rated 900J, which can handle most power surges including electrical interference from nearby lightning strikes. I've experienced one overload so far and the device did exactly what it was supposed to do, which is a good start.

Overload Auto Shut Off

The iClever device has a built-in red reset button that activates whenever there's a power surge or overload on the power strip.

In fact when I accidentally plugged in too many gadgets into the tower (hairdryer) I saw firsthand the product's ability to enter reset mode to avoid damaging my devices.

With that being said, I would not recommend using over 8 ports at once and please try to avoid plugging in large electronics and high voltage appliances/items like hair dryers into the unit.

Intelligent Recognition Technology

Each port is designed to provide the most unique, efficient charge possible. This means it can differentiate between various phones, laptops, and other electronics to give you the fastest, safest power-up.

This along with the safety protocols and ABS fireproof material ensures your input devices will always be protected & charged no matter what happens and that's a huge relief!

Dual Switch Controls

One of the first things you'll probably notice is that there are two reddish-orange switches on top of the tower.

Why you might ask?

Well for one it'll save you some power and second it'll allow you to charge more heavy-duty devices with the strip tower that might not be possible otherwise.

For those times when you're only using one set of ports there's no need to have the entire device active, and each switch can toggle on/off the AC or USB ports.

iClever Power Strip Tower: Final Review

The iClever power strip tower is well worth the price if you're looking to save some space, and it makes for an excellent desktop charging station.

I give the iClever Power Strip Tower Surge Protector 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I like the amount of usable ports on the device, the plethora of safety protections such as the overload reset switch, and the vertical, multilayer all black design.

On the con side I do wish the extension cable was a little bit longer (maybe 10ft) and the rated wattage can be limiting for more power intensive devices. For example I have another vertical tower rated 2500 watts that can easily handle a hair dryer.

Regardless, if you're in need of an efficient power station for your phone, laptop, desktop, etc. then you can't go wrong with this item. And at less than $30 the iClever Power Strip Tower works superbly well at a realistic price.

Note: The item comes with an 18 month warranty, lifetime support, and a 30 day worry-free money back guarantee.
