When looking for a power socket for your desk, what should you consider? In-desk, on-desk, flip-up, pop-up, or static?

It’s 2020, and desks are no longer just for show. Unlike the desks of yesteryear, modern desks are minimalist, ergonomic, and comfortable. The same goes for the power sockets on your desk- thankfully, you no longer have to make do with bulky, cumbersome power sockets that are difficult to use as modern power sockets are slimline and easy to use.

So, if you are in the market for a new desk, work station or power socket, what should you be looking for in a new power socket? Will an in-desk power socket be the best solution for you, or should you consider a pop-up, static or flip-up power socket?

Here at Corporate Connections, workstation power sockets are our specialty, and we have some great advice for those looking for a new power socket solution! Let’s take a look at the options available to you so that you can make an informed decision.

Our in-desk power sockets blend seamlessly into any workstation and create a minimalist and clean look. Such power sockets include useful sockets for your plugs as well as USB ports for charging your devices. A cut-out will be made on the workstation to accommodate the power socket and to create the blended-in finish.

If you do not like the idea of having to drill or cut through your desk or workstation, an on-desk power socket might be the best choice for your needs. Corporate Connections’ on-desk power sockets come in a variety of colors to enhance the look of your desk and have the advantage of being close to the user for ease of use.

A flip-up power socket sits seamlessly on your desk when not in use and can flip up whenever you need to plug in an electrical appliance or connect your smart device to a USB port. With its discreet and aesthetically-pleasing look, a flip-up power socket is ideal if your office has a modern and minimalist look. In addition, it does not take up much real estate on your desk, making it perfect for smaller workstations.

A pop-up power socket has the wonderful advantage of being able to be fully or partially extended, depending on your power or USB requirements. Such a power socket allows you to have a standard plug connected, even when the unit has been pushed down. This means that your desk will look neat and uncluttered while, at the same time, being pleasingly ergonomic.

Finally, a static power socket is, as the name suggests, stationary. At Corporate Connections, we have a wide range of static power sockets that can be fitted onto your office’s workstations. Our static power sockets come in a variety of colors and styles to best suit the look of your particular working environment.

Now that you have read about the various power socket solutions available for your workstation, which one do you feel is best suited to your office, and why? We’d love to hear from you!
