At Modern Power Solutions, there are a few options to choose from when selecting the best pop up power outlet for your use case. This blog will go through and compare the different models to help customers find the most suitable one.
Currently, there are two ranges available at Modern Power Solutions, the V3 and V14.
The V3 range is a motorised-lift pop-up unit. It goes up and down with the touch of the button on its lid. LED’s under the glass lid indicate its moving position.
The V3 range fits within a 90mm-100mm hole diameter. There are 2x USB-A ports providing 10w of power and 2x UK power outlets.
The V3 range is plug and play, it comes fitted with a UK plug on a 1.8m cable, so it is easy to connect to power under your bench.
The V14 range is a gas-strut operated pop-up unit. It raises by pressing down on its lid. The V14 also features a Qi wireless charging top, four UK power sockets, 2x USB-A ports and 2x RJ45 ports for data and phone (optional connection).
The V14 range is plug and play, it comes fitted with a UK plug on a 1.8m cable, so it is easy to connect to power under your bench.
V3 vs V14 range?
The V14 range is larger in diameter but shorter than the V3 range (120mm hole vs 95mm hole)
Benefits of V3 over V14?
The V3 range is a futuristic-looking power point with LED indicators on its glass top and lifts automatically with a motor by the touch of a button. The V3 also features a rubber seal around the lid which is watertight when closed. In terms of size, the V3 fits in a smaller hole which may be preferable for tighter spaces.
Benefits of V14 over V3?
The V14’s key features are its Qi wireless charging top and its abundance of connectivity, featuring four power, two USB, and two RJ45 – more than the V3 range. The V14 has a simpler plain top – single colour without the elements of LED’s, glass and designs on the V3.
The V14 has more features, but the V3 range is watertight when closed, making it better for wetter areas, and the motorised functionality is unique. At the end of the day, it is up to personal preference and use case requirements.
