Our remarkable ability to remember quotes from practically any movie, and our skill in catering to almost any person in South Africa.
The latter is the harder of the two, because A) we haven't met everyone in the R of SA and 2) our personal tastes can hardly be used as a benchmark for things other people may enjoy.
Still, through sheer determination and never-miss-an-episode viewings of Egoli, we like to think we hit the proverbial nail on the head more often than not.
And in the almost unfathomable event that we're completely wrong and nothing on our cyber-shelves appeals to you, we'd like to leave you with the following gem from Lord of the Rings:
"Use the force, Harry." - Edward Cullen.
Always within reach
Often we arrive at our office, at home, in a meeting, or somewhere else and find it difficult to reach for a nearby available power outlet to charge our notebooks or smartphones. Either because we have to duck beneath our desks to reach for one, or they are blocked by bulky plugs and cannot be used anymore. Placing regular extension cords on our desks is simply aesthetically unpleasing. Besides, more and more electronic devices are charged with USB cables, but they are often too short to reach our desks, bedsides, etc.
At the office, power outlets are almost never within reach. Often you will have to duck beneath your desk to reach for an available outlet. PowerCube |Extended| versions come with a unique docking system, enabling you to mount the PowerCube on your desk or underneath it so that you can charge your notebook and smartphone right from your desktop.
The docking station that comes with PowerCube |Extended| versions can be mounted with the two pieces of tape provided. Whenever you decide to remove it, simply pull the tabs. We carefully selected the sticky tape to be as powerful as possible, and yet leave no traces on the surface when removed.
In the bedroom you might want to read an eBook, work with your tablet computer, and/or play with your smartphone. However, their USB cables are often too short to reach your bed. By placing a PowerCube |Extended USB| next to your bed, you can charge your devices via its high-powered dual USB ports (2.1A) that allow charging two devices simultaneously. The charging time will be shorter than charging via a USB port on your notebook. Now you do not need to worry about running out of battery, as power is available right at your bedside.
The world would be a better, more efficient place, if the devices we use had compact plugs. Unfortunately, most of our technological accessories come with bulky adaptors that cover adjacent sockets, wasting an entire outlet, but our uniquely designed PowerCube |Originals| & PowerCube |Extendeds| avoids outlet blockage, keeping things easy and efficient.
For anyone who wants to arrange their power cords neatly, the PowerCube |Extended| versions include a CableFix that helps aligning the cables.
The included 1,5m 3-in-1 USB Cable with USB-C from Allocacoc is also a must-have! Keep it in your purse, laptop case or even wallet to never be caught without a charging cable. Keep it neatly rolled up with its plastic clip, for a tangle-free cable. The best part is, you can charge two devices (Apple and micro USB device) at the same time!

Never have to wait at home all day for your parcel or miss a delivery again: Pargo delivers your parcels to a store near you.
Having partnered with hundreds of stores in South Africa, there's (almost) always a Pick-up Point near you: often with opening hours of up to 15 hours per day - some (like fuel stations) are even open 24/7!
Why not give it a try today?
Well, because we also have to pay for delivery. And that money needs to come from somewhere.
Shipping costs money and we don't want to go bankrupt.
We have debated the merits of offering free shipping at length but the reality is that – without some magic source of free cash – the only place that money can come from is from our customers.
That leaves us with two options: hide it in the price of the product, or show it. We decided to be transparent and show it. This lets us cut our prices to the bare minimum and show you the best possible savings.
If we had incorporated the shipping cost into the price of an item, you’d pay double whenever you order more than one item but, in reality, the cost of shipping doesn’t necessarily go up.
By the way: the actual shipping charge you pay is a best-effort approximation of what shipping is going to cost us. As a result, ordering a 3kg item to Sandton or Cape Town may work out cheaper than a 75g iPhone cover to Springbok. Don’t blame us; blame the vast expanse that is our beautiful South Africa.
We'd love to offer free shipping. But we can't, because that means turning our company into a loss-making enterprise.
We rarely hold stock. Our partners deliver exactly what we need, after a deal has run. That way we keep our costs down, prices low and everybody (including you) happy.
We're not like other online shops with a fixed catalogue and tons of stock. Instead, most of our products never come back to our website again. That’s how we want it, as it keeps us fresh and unpredictable (win #1).
So, after you (and lots of others) have placed your orders, we go to our suppliers and place a massive, single order. Our suppliers love this, as it keeps things simple and moving along smoothly. Happy suppliers equal low prices (win #2).
Since we don’t hold stock, we can work with a cheaper, medium-sized warehouse, instead of a mega-warehouse (win #3) and we’re saving lots on not needing any processes involved in handling and returning unsold stock, allowing us to offer better deals (win #4).
The practice of not holding stock is one of the core principles behind OneDayOnly’s success. That, and our sparkling personalities of course.
