by Brianna Crandall — April 4, 2022 — Power supply provider ECA by Dekko has just announced the launch of Electrolite — an innovative portable power outlet for the contract furniture industry that combines configurable power with 360-degree intentional design.
Dekko General Manager Rick Fox explained:
Users and specifiers can configure nearly every aspect of Electrolite to fit their specific needs. No matter what angle you view the product from, its consistent form can be felt.
With its high level of customization, Electrolite can be made for virtually any space.
High product configurability
Power products typically lack the options and flexibility to truly adapt to surroundings. Electrolite shakes up the status quo and opens a new world of possibilities.
People today expect the ability to change up their workspaces. We saw a distinct need to create a configurable power solution for dynamic environments, and the result is Electrolite.
Specifiers can choose one, two, three, four or five tamper-resistant receptacles as well as a reversible USB-A charging port and a 60-watt USB-C Power Delivery charging port. The reversible charging ports are touted as a unique feature that enables a user to connect a Type-A cable without worrying about the plug or cable’s orientation. In addition to more than 17 possible configurations, Electrolite allows users to rotate the outlets within the product as well as the strain relief of the cord exiting the back of the product (either straight or a 90-degree rotation).
The 90-degree rotation option is ideal for use on a work surface placed against a panel or wall, while the straight angle works best for work surfaces integrating the freestanding and undermount models. The rotating outlets provide users the ability to accommodate any style of chargers and plugs, including Apple bricks.
Electrolite offers a modern color palette that specifiers can chose from including black, white, bronze, latte and carbon. Custom colors are also available. Units can be further customized with a monochromatic scheme, a painted body or a painted faceplate color variation.
As part of its configurability, the product also offers a variety of mounting options, including clamp mount, undermount and freestanding.
In designing Electrolite, ECA by Dekko focused not only on the front-facing portion of the unit but also on the entire 360-degree package.
Many power products don’t consider what the back and mounting looks like. We did, ensuring a design that can be shown at all angles and for all situations and applications. Height-adjustable tables and freestanding desks are perfect examples of where you’ll see the back of a unit — and Electrolite doesn’t disappoint. It looks great from any angle.
The device’s robust craftsmanship consists of a weighted metal structure in a die cast and extruded aluminum, giving it a premium feel.
Advanced charging technology and safety
Electrolite offers users the best in power by incorporating GaN technology, which allows the output performance to increase, even as the size of the power unit decreases. This type of technology also protects devices from shorting out, while maintaining battery longevity and keeping the battery temperature safely in check.
Additionally, the option of a 60-watt USB-C Power Delivery port charges any device, including laptops, which Dekko points out is unusual for USB-Cs.
Electrolite is UL Listed for the U.S. and Canada and is FCC tested.
