The Swiss IT hardware manufacturer ARCTIC COOLING is expanding its diversified product line from designing cooling solutions to various electronic products and peripherals. Today the company launched their first power adapter series ARCTIC C1 and ARCTIC C2, designing for frequent travelers for charging a wide range of USB-powered appliances.

4 AC plugs are supplied with the ARCTIC C1 / C2. They can be used worldwide – North and South America, Europe, UK, Middle East, Africa, China, Japan, Australia and more. With full range 100 to 240V input, these chargers automatically, providing users a truly hassle-free charger.



The ARCTIC C1 contains 1 USB port, whereas the C2 version offers 4 ports for multiple charging. Instead of using different power adapters, 4 electronic devices can be charged simultaneously by using the ARCTIC C2. It saves not only space, but also charging time.

The ARCTIC C1 / C2 are suitable for various USB-powered applications, such as music players (eg MP3 players), handheld game consoles, PDAs, mobile phones and the newly launched ARCTIC NC. For Nokia and Sony Ericsson mobile phones, an additional USB cable is needed when powering them by the ARCTIC C1 / C2. Users can put the traditional bulky mobile phone charger away and bring only the ARCTIC C1 / C2 when they are travelling.

Cables are available in our Webshop arcticC1.arctic-cooling.com at US$4.90, including worldwide shipping cost. Safe and reliable With Short Circuit Protection, Over Current Protection and Over Power Protection, the ARCTIC C1 / C2 provide maximum safety to your valuable devices. The ARCTIC C1 / C2 come with a 2-year limited warranty. They will be available in December 2009. The MSRP is: ARCTIC C1 – US$ 21.95 and 14.95 €; ARCTIC C2 – US$26.55 and 17.95 € (excl. VAT).

Not all devices will charge off a powered hub.

I've tried it, my Blackberry Storm is extremely picky on what it will charge with.

fair enough. all my devices to, but i've not had many fancy ones tested. (just basic crap)


if your device actually requires a data connection before it will charge, it wont work on this device either.

(i've had a GPS with this issue, thought it was unique - didnt realise more devices would have this problem)
