The Travel Secure USB Data Blocker allows you to charge safely from any USB socket with no risk of data transfer to or from your device. Simply plug your charging cable into one end and the other end into a USB socket/charger. It is compatible with smartphones, tablets, mp3 players, bluetooth headphones, and 1000s of other devices.
Your device will not go into ‘data transfer’ mode if connected to a computer. This also prevents data hacking and any risk of viruses being loaded onto your device when charging from an unknown or public USB socket, known as 'juice jacking'. It also prevents unwanted syncing or popups, such as when charging from a car’s USB socket.
Many office PCs have their USB sockets disabled for security. This allows charging from those USB sockets without breaking policy. Some devices such as certain Blackberry or Sony models will not charge at all from many USB chargers, but are enabled when using the Travel Secure Data Blocker.
The Travel Secure Data Blocker has a built in chip which detects the type of connected device and differentiates between Apple, Universal and Samsung charging specifications. This prevents the blocker from slower charging and can increase charging speed if your charger is sending the wrong signal, such as when charging an iPad from a universal wall adaptor.
The Travel Secure USB Data Blocker is barely larger than a normal USB-A connector, with a profile of just 18mm x 11mm, so it won’t block neighboring USB sockets.
