Cable management
The power hub has two cable clips:
•	 Cable clip 1 is adjacent on the plug.
•	 Cable clip 2 is 300mm apart.
When cable is routed on the body, the USB cable (USB Type-C capsule) will
stay within the power adapter and power bank body.
Cable management on Power Bank
By uncoupling cable clip 1, users have a cleaner on-desk charging solution
by using only a fraction of the cable. The rest of the cable and USB-C
capsule are held by the cable clip 2.
Cable clip 1 Cable clip 2
Cable management on Power Adapter
