Hong Kong based lifestyle brand loves to combine tech with design, and since 2012, has launched a series of stylish, unique, innovative and functional audio equipment and accessories. The Builder Block (CP-4USBPD01-WHT) is a 65W 4-port Power Delivery (PD) Charger with a silicon sleeve which supports Lego bricks to customise with.

With the above charging spec, you can see that the Builder Block PD charger will be capable of charging high-wattage devices like Apple laptops. The USB Type-A delivers standard charging current, while the USB-C ports will achieve faster charging speeds which most smartphones support.
The Builder Block supports 100-240V input power rating, and the detachable power cord ensures universal compatibility by getting the appropriate plug. It is also registered in Singapore with SAFETY Mark (Reg. No. 200035-17) to provide assurance to product quality.
The silicon sleeve with the brick pattern offers a fun twist to this otherwise functional tech. Due to the soft material, I find that the Lego bricks are not able to stay in place. Nevertheless, it achieves a visual cohesion when you place it along with your Lego collection, allowing you to integrate the charger into your own brick world.
The Builder Block PD Charger from thecoopidea adds a fun visual value to an otherwise functional piece of tech. It’s available in Singapore at a recommended retail price S$129, with a launch price of S$99.90. Check out at Shopee, Challenger, Popular, iStudio. One year local warranty by distributor McBay.
