The WiBox is a compact and affordable Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) solution designed to keep you online during power outages and load shedding. The WiBox is permanently plugged into the wall socket and your devices, there are two supplied leads, one to power your router and the other to power your fibre box if required.
During a power outage, the box will automatically switch from Eskom power to battery power,
providing you with an uninterrupted connection.
When the power switches back on the device will automatically switch from battery mode to
wall power mode – charging the WiBox and powering the router and fibre box.
I am able to work remotely a couple of days a week and this became extremely problematic during load shedding as I needed to work online and my fibre had no power to allow me to work. I chose WiBox because it offered an affordable solution for me, and it has been perfect. Even when we were on Level 3 load shedding for weeks it was able to power my fibre unit constantly so I could work without interruption.
Actually, I am tweeting to you, as we are being loadshed (Via WIFI) ☺ I had great service from Arion Power, even after the first unit was faulty, they replaced it quick quick. I like that it powers both fibre router and and WIFI hotspot simultaneously. Can recommend the WiBox
This past weekend during a power outage here in Johannesburg, my WiBox kicked in instantly and I continued watching Netflix without as much as a buffer. More important than Netflix, though, is work; I could have been on a Zoom meeting, or making a time-sensitive trade. With WiBox, that anxiety is gone.”
I ordered the Unit on a Sunday night and it was delivered to me by Wednesday morning. I plugged it in as recommended and it was ready for loadshedding that evening. It worked flawlessly.
