Energizer Expands Suite of Qi-Enabled Chargers with New Single-Zone Inductive Charger and Mini/Micro USB Adapter

The company will demonstrate new inductive charger along with additional new portable power accessories at MobileFocus during CTIA Wireless

CTIA WIRELESS 2011

ST. LOUIS--()--The technology industry is buzzing about the latest developments and opportunities in wireless charging, and a universal charging standard is undoubtedly one of the hot topics. Energizer, a leader in innovative portable power technology, continues to demonstrate a commitment to a universal wireless standard with an expanding suite of Qi-enabled products (pronounced chee). This new universal charging standard, developed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), will give consumers the freedom to charge any Qi device 5 Watts or less on any Qi charging pad – regardless of manufacturer.

Following the launch of the first suite of Qi-enabled products in fall 2010, which included the two-zone Energizer® Inductive Charger – an International CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree – the company will be showing a new single-zone inductive charger, the recently introduced iPhone® 4 sleeve, and the new Energizer® Micro/Mini USB Adapter. This slim, compact Qi adapter conveniently adheres to the back of any phone, making it instantly Qi compatible.

While these adaptors and sleeves make almost any phone Qi-ready, it is widely anticipated that smartphone enthusiasts will soon benefit from a larger selection of Qi-enabled products, as additional WPC members – such as Verizon Wireless, HTC, Nokia, Motorola, Fulton Innovation, LG and others – introduce their Qi devices. Consumers will be able to identify the Qi symbol on products and packaging, indicating that their device and charger are interoperable.

Additionally, Energizer will demo the following products to the wireless industry’s top press and analysts, ideal for power-on-the-go:

  • Energizer® Travel Adapter: This all-in-one AC adapter includes iPhone®/iPod® dock, nightlight, three AC outlets and two USB outlets with numerous converters for international travel.
  • Energizer® AC Universal USB Wall Charger: A single or dual wall model is ideal for charging smartphones, MP3 players, digital cameras and most other USB-powered gadgets, with a fold-out plug for easy storage and travel.
  • Energizer® DC Universal USB Car Charger: Available in single or double model, the charger quickly converts a car/truck DC outlet into a USB charging station.

For Comment:

Energizer executives will be available to discuss how the company’s growing portfolio of products is designed to address the hectic lives of everyone from business professionals to busy moms and dads. Subject matter experts can also discuss Qi and the future of the wireless charging industry.
