January 7, 2008 Voxred, the company behind the Turbo Charge, iTurbo and TC2 lines of portable chargers, is launching the PowerBuddy at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. A compact, self contained device which uses lithium ion batteries to charge up to two electronic devices simultaneously, the USD$40 PowerBuddy comes with 11 adapters for cell phones, personal media players, PDAs and portable gaming units.
The 11 included adapters are designed for Motorola, Samsung, LG, Sanyo, Sprint, Kyocera, Audiovox, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Blackberry and Palm One Treo cell phone and PDAs, the PSP, Game Boy Advance SP, Micro, DS and DS Lite, portable gaming devices and most devices that charge via USB.
The device also features a folding plug for charging at wall outlets, eliminating the need to carry yet another power cord.
PowerBuddy will be available to consumers in Spring 2008 for US$40.
Voxred is also using the Consumer Electronics Show to launch the SoundSender, a Bluetooth enabled voice conferencing unit that connects wirelessly to cell phones and PCs. Like PowerBuddy, SoundSender also uses 100% lithium ion batteries, and can record and playback audio via an integrated memory card.
