Primary USB

The primary USB (C1) is Apple-certified and will charge all Apple devices.

Secondary USB

The secondary USB (C2) is compatible with all other USB devices.

Sticky Foot and Magnetic Base

The ES500 combines our popular sticky foot with a heavy-duty recessed magnet in order to secure the power supply to any station, ensuring it stays put without damaging the surface.

Cleaning the sticky foot
: If the stickiness seems to be wearing off, you can clean the foot with rubbing alcohol or water and allow it to air dry. The silicone will regain its stickiness.

Mounting Plate

Included with ES500 is a metal mounting plate with a 1/4 “ threaded hole, making it compatible with most camera mounting gear including GoPro mounts. Use your choice of accessories to mount the ES500 to your workstation or workspace.

The mounting plate comes with two screws, washers and wall anchors, so it can be attached to most wood surfaces. 


The ES500 is easy to cover and clean, with no knobs or plugs sticking out to interfere with barrier film application or the bagging process. The powder-coated aluminum enclosure and membrane interface are highly durable, and will withstand the harsh chemicals used in the cleaning process.

Important Cleaning Tips

  • DO NOT spray any of the open ports.
  • Spraying cleaners directly onto the power supply is NOT RECOMMENDED.  
  • Try using a thin strip of barrier film to cover open ports while cleaning. 


International Cord Sets

The ES500 power supply is perfect for travel; it can be used almost anywhere. All you need is the required cord-set for your geographic region.

ES500 power supplies purchased in North America come with a North American power cord. British, Australian and European cords are available for separate purchase at
