USB-powered devices have become an integral part of any technology enthusiast. From media players to mobile phones, many of today’s portable devices can be recharged through a USB connection. Most manufacturers include an AC-to-USB adapter to charge their devices directly from a power outlet whereas others simply include the required USB cable. Unfortunately, in most cases, the given adapter has a single USB port. What happens if you have multiple devices that need to be charged at the same time? A possible problem ensues: you might run out of power outsets or, even, USB ports! Another dilemma might arise: when you’re on the travel, would you carry multiple adapters with you or would that defeat the idea of traveling light?
This is where the Arctic Cooling ARCTIC C2 comes in handy. Sporting 4 USB ports, the ARCTIC C2 makes it possible to charge 4 different devices simultaneously. Compact and light, the ARCTIC C2 becomes a great traveling companion with its different AC plugs standards allowing the device to be used in different countries. On paper, the ARCTIC C2 seems to be hitting the right notes, but the product will be examined in more detail in the following review.
