IOGEAR Expands GearJuice™ Portable Power Family [01-07-2008]


New offerings provide instant energy for the most popular mobile devices

LAS VEGAS – 2008 International CES – January 7, 2008 – IOGEAR further solves the challenges of the modern mobile lifestyle with the expansion of its GearJuice product family. The company today announced the GearJuice – Slim Charger, GearJuice – Rescue Charger and Battery Tester. The thin, lightweight Slim Charger (MSRP $29.95), just over three inches in length, is small enough to fit in a pocket or purse and can power a cell phone twice before requiring a refresh from an external energy source. The product’s chic design and sleek form make it an ideal solution for the busy mobile professional who doesn’t have room for extra cables and connectors. The Slim Charger is compatible with mobile phones, Bluetooth headsets and MP3 players that are powered by a USB connection. The GearJuice – Rescue Charger (MSRP $11.95) serves as an emergency energy source for on-the-go gadgets. Powered by a single AA battery, the device enables quick and effortless charging on the fly. Its compact form provides instant power to mobile devices with a mini-USB connection. It is a simple and easy solution to carry in a laptop bag or backpack for urgent situations when power is a must. “Our GearJuice family of products aims to solve the pain points of needing to be constantly connected without having the battery power and resources necessary when away from home and the office,” said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR. “The Slim and Rescue Chargers provide an instantaneous shot of energy for a variety of commonly-used, battery-powered devices, enabling anyone to get through the day without worrying about running out of juice.” IOGEAR also introduced its new Battery Tester (MSRP $6.95). The small, environmentally-friendly, portable device allows individuals to gauge how much power is left in 1.5V, AA, AAA, C, D and 9V types of regular or rechargeable batteries. With an easy-to-read meter, consumers can identify their battery power levels, helping eliminate unnecessary disposal of usable batteries, further protecting the environment. The compact device contains a key ring hole, attachable to a key chain for easy access and convenient use. It is also an ideal gadget to place in a home’s spare drawer or garage to quickly assess battery life. IOGEAR’s new GearJuice products (Slim Charger (GMP4001W6), Rescue Charger (GMP3001W6) and Battery Tester (GBT001W6)) will be available in Q1, 2008 from major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail outlets.
