  • Why 5 sockets and not 6? Anything exept this is very clear to me, and the design is cute.

    Alex says:
  • Such a large object to reduce “clutter”?

    punktless says:
  • I think I’d use it, but throw away the lid. Gets in the way..

    NewWheel says:
  • The majority of the plugs that currently give me a clutter issue would not fit the those sockets let alone fit under the lid.

    Ark says:
  • Nice, but impossible to fit small chargers we all had inside this without blocking other ports…

    Fab says:
  • Hello @Alex, I work at Punkt.. Anything more than 5 sockets would have increased the proportions of the ES 01 and therefore spoilt the design and size. The sockets are cleverly positioned inside so that you can fit different sized adapters and plugs creating a fully functional hub. Hope that answers your question. Marcia

    Marcia Caines says:
  • Hello @punktless, both plugs and cables converge under the lid and hide the cable mess – cutting out cable clutter.

    Marcia Caines says:
  • @newwheel Hello, it’s Marcia from Punkt. You can actually put the lid on top of the power lead once your devices are plugged in. The ES 01 hidesall the plugs and power cables under its lid. You can switch the power supply to all the devices on/off with the power switch on top of the ES 01.

    Marcia Caines says:
  • @Ark Hello, it’s Marcia from Punkt. I think you’ll be surprised at the number and type of AC adapters that actually fit inside (and under the lid) of the ES 01.

    Marcia Caines says:
  • looks like you only hide the plugs and not the cables ( is there a spool I haven’t noticed ?)… my cable clutter usually arises from excess cable length, not unsightly plugs. Furthermore : is there a way to mount the hub on a wall or on the side of a cabinet ?
