Conclusion

In this section we will share what we thought of this AVF Mini Universal Power Bar. We believe most of us have more than one electrical appliances and also smartphones for charging and powered up. This unit is convenient for the traveler which the unit is design with small and portable size. User can charge up to 2 devices simultaneously which support up to 2.1A for fast charging. The power bar also came with addition universal socket plug in case user wants to charge their portable gaming console like 3DS or PS Vita and even can connect and charge your laptop too. Worries free as AVF already makes the unit with circuit protection. One of the cons we notice with this unit is the full body is made out of plastic but AVF informed us the material used to make this unit is made out of fire retarded material to increase fire resistance. The Power Bar came with 1.5meter long cable and support clean cable management too. The unit came with 3 different colour of user preferences, pink, blue and green. With the pricetag of only RM49, We recommended for user that looking not only power adapter that support USB port but also come with universal power socket.
