For travellers that hate the bulkiness of the British 3-pin plug, the Flip plug allow the plug to be folded into a compact flat form factor for packing away into the luggage bag. Prices below.
The Flip is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign which raised £28,115 from 1,140 backers, exceeding their initial goal of £15,000.
Measuring in at a mere 18mm when folded, the Flip is only a third of the standard British plug’s thickness.
When folded, the pins are hidden away when not in use, protecting your devices and other items from scratches when stored together with the Flip.
To use, simply press the auto-release button, lock the pin and you are ready to go.
The Flip comes in three designs to cater to varying power needs.
The smallest of the three, the Flip Duo (S$39) comes with two 3.4A high output ports and measures 48 x 18 x 78mm, weighing 60g.
The Flip Quad (S$59) doubles the number of USB ports to four ports which generate 5.0 A of combined output, measuring 48 x 18 x 108mm and weighing 85g.
Flip Power (S$69) includes a built-in 2000 mAH portable battery with two 3.4A maximum output USB ports, measuring 48 x 18 x 78mm and weighing 100g.
When plugged in, Flip Power charges both the internal battery and any connected device concurrently.
