How many times have you tried to make a call, access the internet, or play a song...and realize that your digital device has run out of power...and to make matters worse, you didn’t carry a power chord or charger? Could it be because they’re too bulky and cumbersome?
You’re not alone. If you’re conducting business on your mobile phone and lose your connection, you’re embarrassed and feel powerless. It’s ok…breathe…
Ecosol Technologies of Ottawa, Ontario has introduced three tiny but practical tools aptly branded, the PowerStick, PowerShot and PowerTrip. In a nutshell, they’re small portable usb-powered chargers that eliminate the need for bulky wall chargers, replacing them with one convenient power source.
These chargers, with an optional custom branded logo imprint, represent the ultimate corporate gift for new hires, key clients, vendors and/or partners. Brand marketers are all clamoring for the first-to-gift position for these hot new gadgets.
PowerStick and PowerShot both work best when your mobile devices need a quick emergency power boost. PowerStick is available with optional 2, 4 or 8GB of memory.
We’re talking portable “juice” for mobile phones, PDAs, iPods, iPads, tablets, cameras, etc., small enough to fit on your keychain or in your pocket or purse. When you’re out of power, simply connect your device with the supplied adapter, press the power button on the charger and you’re back in business!
PowerTrip provides a full charge for all digital devices (per Ecosol, it can charge up to 5 Blackberries)
The folks at Ecosol have also done their homework in making sure they’ve covered the spectrum of adapters to fit most of the popular mobile devices on the market. PowerStick comes with 6 connectors. No worries if you’re an iPad, iPhone, Droid, Google, tablet or Blackberry user - you’re covered!
Ecosol recently grabbed the attention of the tech world and was selected to receive the designation of CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Awards honoree. This recognition was due to the universal applicability and innovation of the PowerTrip & PowerStick chargers.
The PowerTrip, the largest of the three chargers, is about the size of a container of Ice Breakers (perfectly powerful mints). It powers itself in three ways: solar panel, usb & ac adapter are all packed in this tiny case. Compact, sexy cool and practical – what a combination!
PowerTrip is available with 4, 8 or 16GB of memory. PowerTrip and PowerShot include mini-usb, micro-usb and Apple connectors. What’s in your pocket?
