The Coopidea Power Block 5 USB Wall Charger

The Coopidea 10.6A Power Block

I bought the 10.6A Power Block 5 USB Wall Charger by The Coopidea at the 2015 IT Show. I cannot remember the price but I am sure it was on offer, as of most products at the IT show. This is used mainly for my corporate travel and it will complement the Arctic Charger which I blog about here.


Input: 100-240V ~ 1.2A, 50-60Hz
Output: 5.0V, 10.6A (4 x 2.4A, 1x1A)
Dimension: 88 x 75 x33 mm
Weight: 210g

After using it and comparing it against the Arctic charger, there are a few downsides.

1. There is no light on the charger to indicate if it is powered on.
2. It would be nice if a bag is included to keep the power cable and the charging block.

Otherwise, it is a very good device.
