Great product with neat features, possibly a tad too large for some

We are overall quite happy with the PowerBox: The additional USB-C port is great for powering other devices you might have and can even satisfy the power hungry Raspberry Pi 4. If you need more than one PowerBox, it’s rather convenient that you can easily stack them. The threaded power jacks provide a reliable connection. Compared with the official power supplies sold by camera manufacturers it was even cheaper in our case while significantly reducing cable tangle. Consider however that, if your space is limited, the PowerBox itself and the necessary power supply are rather large. Furthermore there are no mounting points whatsoever. This all fine if you do a photo shoot in a place like a studio where space is ample, but could become more challenging if you think about permanently installing and/or encasing your setup.
