In a world that is increasingly embracing the role of gadgets and technology in the daily lives of people, stuff that protects our investments remains an equally important part of the things that drive us. Electronics, especially, require measures aimed at safeguarding them from harm amid their delicate design, such as a surge in electricity.

Meeting up with that demand is Cherry as it introduces its take on the universal adapter, with a few smart twists—the Cherry Smart Universal Adapter.

With support of up to 16A of power, the Cherry Smart Universal Adapter can provide essential energy to most devices that need it. Further, it comes with a flame-retardant capability that either prevents the start of a fire or mitigates it through a coating against heat, sparks, and other ignition sources. In case of an inevitable fire, the universal adapter does its part by lowering the cost of fire damage and essential repairs.

With portability in mind, the Cherry Smart Universal Adapter is also the perfect companion for individuals on the go and those who simply cannot part with their devices.

The “Smart” label with the Cherry Smart Universal Adapter is no empty claim, though. In particular, the universal adapter is smart thanks to a handful of features that became embedded with its design. Per user instruction, the plug-and-play adapter can either follow a schedule or establish a timer in response to the Cherry IoT Solution App, connected via Wi-Fi or data connection. The command is either based on taps or voice.

The Cherry Smart Universal Adapter is available now on the Cherry Shop (, Shopee, or Lazada for Php839.
