Review: BlueLounge Sumo – Micro-Suction ‘Cableweight’

Before I get started on this review, I would like to give a big thanks to Bluelounge who sent the Sumo out to me for review. You can find more information about all their products at www.bluelounge.com

 

 

 

Cables. Something we all have, and the number of them seem to be increasing – Phone and Tablet Sync/Charge cables, power cables for laptops, speaker cables, and the list goes on. And what happens when you disconnect the cable from which ever device it was charging, syncing, or playing music from? If your lucky it stays where its put, but if like me your not so lucky, it will slide of your desk and end up on the floor. This is were the Sumo comes in.

The Sumo is described by Bluelounge as “A Heavyweight for Small Cables”, but I like to think of it as a “Cableweight”. It is a very simple idea, a 54mm x 54mm black or white cube, with two cable channels underneath. The Sumo also uses Bluelounges Micro-Suction Pads that sticks it to pretty much any surface, is removable, and doesn’t leave any residue behind. You simply peel off the plastic covering on the Micro-Suction Pads, place the Sumo over your cables, and that’s it. Your cables will move around on the desk, but wont go any further than the Sumo. Problem solved!

I find this so much better than running the cables loose, as I know that they are going to stay in place when I disconnect them from my devices and I won’t have to try and find them on the floor the next time I need to charge my phone (aka all the time). Plus it looks so good sitting on my desk!

A very simple product, that does exactly what it is meant to very very well. 5/5.

The Sumo is available from the Bluelounge website for €13.95, find out more and purchase it here – Bluelounge Sumo
