The Kube Essentials alarm clock with multi-function LCD display powers all mobile electronics, including smartphones, tablets, cameras, and wearable technologies. It features a highly-visible, top-mount AC outlet that enables guests to easily plug in laptops or other electronics; a universal power outlet is offered in markets outside the United States. It also features longer Apple Lightening and Micro-USB flip out cables and can be upgraded to next generation charging formats, including USB Type-C (reversible plug capability). The unit is equipped with two rapid-charge smart USB Ports, and a wireless Qi charging pad that attaches to the base of the unit can be added.
The illumination of the Kube Essentials clock face can be set to turn off completely at night via the snooze bar. Then, as morning comes, an ambient light sensor on the side resumes the LED clock face to a fully-on setting.
