Details: Following the success of our Data Block USB cables, Data Blocker USB Adaptor released in 2013 and the ‘SmartCharge’ Data Blocker released in 2015, we’ve now released our latest update.
The 3rd Gen PortaPow Data Blocker still connects to the end of your USB charging cable allowing you to charge your device safely with no risk of viruses / hacking, and incorporates our SmartCharge chip to send the correct charging signal for your device, which can even improve charging speed if your charger is sending the wrong signal. It still has the same compact size so it won’t block neighboring sockets if your charger/computer has several side by side.
Improvements include visible security, laser etching, zero waste packaging and a string lasso. See photos for more details.
The blocker will not solve charging issues caused by a low quality or extra long cable, a low powered socket (eg some car sockets) or a device which requires a non-standard signal (eg some SatNavs / DashCams). In these cases please use a different charger or cable. Devices which charge using Qualcomm Quick Charge, Samsung Adaptive Fast Charge, Motorola TurboPower or similar standards require data transfer to be enabled and a compatible charger, so will not charge at extra fast speeds from normal USB sockets or with a data blocker.
