MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FINsix Corporation (FINsix), the worldwide leader in high-frequency power electronics, today announced the launch of Dart, the world’s smallest, lightest laptop charger.
Dart is up to four times smaller and lighter than the charger that shipped with your laptop. At a powerful 65W and with a 2.1A auxiliary USB port, Dart can charge a laptop plus USB device, such as a smartphone or tablet, simultaneously. This means that on-the-go consumers and business travelers are able to ditch their bulky bricks and USB chargers, providing an unprecedented level of portability.
“The reality is that all modern electronics still come with a clunky AC/DC power converter that is really inconvenient to carry. Dart eliminates the bulk, making it easy to throw in a pocket and have on hand when you need it most,” says Vanessa Green, FINsix CEO. “With Dart, we aim to lighten your load and provide a sleek, universal charging accessory that fits perfectly into your mobile lifestyle.”
Compatible with all popular PC laptop brands, Dart’s radical reduction in size is enabled by patented high-frequency power conversion technology first developed at MIT. The launch of Dart follows FINsix’s announcement in January 2016 of a partnership with Lenovo for the 65W Micro Adapter, the smallest charging option for ThinkPad laptops.
Dart is available now at FINsix.com for $99, and through FINsix’s retail launch partners, including Staples, Brookstone, Fry’s, Micro Center, Electronic Express, and B&H. It comes in five colors: blue, magenta, silver, gunmetal, and orange.
