Best Power Towers – XM-4434 Multi Function Power Tower
XM-4434 Multi Function Power Tower:
Multi function power tower is a device which provides various functions such as TV, DVD player, VCR, radio, phone etc. Most of these devices have different features and they all work together to provide optimum performance. There are many brands of multi function power towers available in the market today.
Some of them include; Enermax, LG, Antec, Seasonic, Corsair and others. However there are some factors which make one brand better than another. These factors include the price tag, the warranty period and other features like its fan control feature or how well it supports overclocking.
XM-4434 is a new model from Enermax. It was released in June 2015. Its specifications are as follows;
• Input Voltage: 100V~240V AC 50/60Hz • Output voltage: 0.5 ~ 5.0VDC • Dimensions (LxWxH): 6.6″ x 4.8″ x 2.4″ • Weight: 8 lbs (3 kg)
The unit comes with a remote control and a manual included with it. Its power factor is 0.9 which means it draws less power from the socket in comparison to other devices.
There are 3 indicator lights inside the unit, although they are not labeled clearly, which do show the status of the device. There are also 2 USB charging ports at the front of the unit. The cables required to be connected to the main unit are; AC power cable, 5.1v DC 30 AMP cable and a SATA cable for PC LINK feature which is optional. The design and look of the unit is pretty good. It comes in black color. Its dimensions are 6.6″(L) x 4.8″(W) x 2.
