Apple is famous for making some of the most aesthetically and ergonomically appealing devices in the world. However, making chargers doesn’t seem to be there specialty.
This is where a company called Ten One Design, revealed the “Blockhead” to the world. The Blockhead is a side facing plug that can be put on your Apple charger that allows users to charge their new Macbook or iPad, with the adapter parallel to the wall, hence saving space in crowded places.
This simple, yet smart design of the Blockhead only required one inch of clearance, as compared to standard 60W power adapter plug that requires 3.8 inches. Also, the geometry of the design ensure that the power cord is always pointing downwards, reduces any sort of cord stress.
Ten One Design claims that the accessory is compatible with all Apple chargers that are rated 10W or more. This means that it will work with all the Macbook models, as well as the iPad models, but not the original iPad mini.
The only problem we see with the Blockhead is that sharing a power board or a power strip may become an issue if there are multiple users around. It would be very cruel of you if you blocked someone’s charging outlet using the Blockhead.
On the bright side, all those interested can preorder the Blockhead on the Ten One Design website, for USD 19.95, where shipping starts in April.
