Who are Konnet?

From their website:

KONNET Technology Inc. had been formed by a group of Audio and Visual consultants having strong understanding on true audio and visual quality in Canada. It started with A/V consulting services for A/V home users and some organizations in Toronto, assisting users in A/V product selection and A/V system setup. With the positive feedback from their customers, they had developed their own branded A/V peripherals for enhancing the performance and stimulating the true quality of A/V products in the digital entertainment world.

They recognize the quality of A/V products is not just depending on the core units of the A/V items like LCD TV, Audio system, CD players, DVD players, game consoles, etc. but also counting much on the transmission of the A/V signals. Where wire, switch, connector, power adapter and connecting devices that will work. Provided that both the core units and the accessories are well aligned, the true quality of A/V content will perform at their utmost level.

Further with the advancement of A/V technology and the lower cost of A/V products, they believe the new generation of digital entertainment should no longer be an expensive hobby and should extend to everyone. Then they started to design and develop A/V accessories for the mass market in order to bring up the true quality to all public.

Final Thoughts

The Power Pyramid from Konnet works really well and does what it says on the tin. You just plug in the power and up to four PS3 controllers and that’s it. The controller or controllers will start charging automatically and you can tell the progress of the charge based on what colour the LED indicator is.

The Pyramid is designed to be as small as it can be and so doesn’t take up lots of room and you can always use it to store your controllers when not in use.

The Power Pyramid retails for around £20, and it worth every penny.
