New Ubiquiti Instant 802.3AF POE to USB Converter
Description

Hey all,

 

some of you might recnogize me as the guy who Did the ubiquiti License plate a few weeks ago.  Well here is another Ubiquiti Story.  Awhile back I was looking in the beta store and saw this 802.3AF POE to usb converter.  I didnt think much of it at first.  Then I thought for 20 bucks It couldnt hurt to try one out.   So I went to buy 1 or 2 and they were gone.  Recently, I looked again and they were in stock.  See the attached photos:2017-09-12.jpg2017-09-12 (1).jpg

 

I just realized now I have a device that can turn my simple iPhone Charging cable into a 100 Foot charging cable.  As long as I have POE closeby.  Which is almost always.  The charging speed is very fast.  not even plugged in for 45 minutes and its jumped over 50% in battery life.  Quite frequently I dont bring a wall adapter for my chargers, but I always have a patch cord in ALL my bags, along with charging cables.  Quite frequently I find myself in a comm closet and low on power on my phone mid day.  Again, Another great product by UBNT!  Way to go guys on getting creative and building something is super useful!!!

Hi Guys - 

 

Yes, these are just starting to ship to distributors now (they have placed orders).  Should start showing up in next few weeks.

 

Thanks,

Ben

@UBNT-Ben @UBNT-Brandon Thanks guys... will poke the distributor in a couple of weeks if they still don't have them. 

 

Mainly want this as mobile charger, but the RPi usecase is pretty cool as well.

I'd kill for one of these that had data pass though. I'd love to be able to plug a dock in and have it provide power and ethernet. Need to do a restore or a backup no trouble enjoy the speeds that only ethernet can provide.
