Staying “cool” with ABL UK

The glorious British summer is here; it’s hot, cold, wet and windy but we all love the long days and summer holidays. The exceptional heat wave we’ve been experiencing has caused some uncomfortable working temperatures, leaving workers up and down the country looking for ways to cool down.

Generally, offices will blast the air conditioning, but this isn’t always the right way, as all employees like to work under different temperatures which is why “on desk” fans are in. On desks fans can be found in many offices, there a great tool to stay cool without affecting your office neighbours.
Desk fans can be battery, mains or USB powered and it is important to consider how the fan will be powered and used before purchasing.  Batteries will need replacing often, especially if the fan is in constant use, so it might be worth investing in rechargeable versions or investing in a USB or mains-powered fan.
Mains powered fans may be able to plug into a desktop power module which allows easy access to plug sockets, without the need to reach under your desk. ABL power modules can be supplied with either 3.15 or 5 amp fused sockets, so check the fuse requirements of your fan before plugging it in – this can usually be found on the plug and we also provide a standard fuse requirement guide below.
If your fan is rated higher than your power module socket, it will need to be plugged directly into the mains supply.
USB powered fans can utilise the Smart Charge component of an ABL power module.  Simply plug your fan into the charging device as you would a mobile phone and turn it on with no need to worry about overloading the socket.
As a rule, any item of equipment rated in excess of 5 Amp, MUST have a separate power supply, therefore items such as Vacuum Cleaners, Kettles, Coffee Makers and Fan Heaters should not be connected via these power modules.
ABL power modules have been designed to facilitate the needs of the office including configurations to charge devices such as phones, tablets and laptops. Whilst additional items such as desk fans can be plugged into modules, it always best to check the Amp usage before plugging in.
If you would like to hear more information on Amp usage, feel free to call our friendly sales team on +44 (0) 1933 400 080 or click here.

The difference between the A+C charge?

Who is using Type-C Charging?

C-Type charging is quickly becoming the standard for power delivery in the latest devices.

 

How much faster is Type-C?

USB-PD can charge your device up to 70% faster than standard charging 5W charging. When you’re looking for an urgent battery boost, a quick 10 minute charge may be all you need!
