Socket Creates a Portable Charging Power Source
Socket today announced the Mobile Power Pack, a small and light-weight mobile charging source for users of portable electronic devices such as PDAs, mobile phones, MP3 players and more. By eliminating the need for multiple battery packs, the product gives mobile users the freedom to use their electronic devices anywhere for extended periods without pluging in to a wall.
Socket's Mobile Power Pack is a rechargeable Lithium ion battery pack with a capacity of 7,200 mAh and can extend the run time of an average PDA up to 16 hours -- even while operating with accessories and full backlight. The Power Pack's dimensions are 4"x 3"x 1" and it weighs 11 ounces. It will charge or operate any compatible device that uses an input voltage of +5 volts DC.
The Power Pack has the ability to charge most products that draw power from a USB port. It powers devices by simply plugging in a compatible connector to the Mobile Power Pack. Included with the product are a black soft leather case, a travel pouch, DC output cord, and AC adapter with four input plugs for use in the U.S., Europe, United Kingdom, and Australia.
"The Mobile Power Pack provides users with a powerful productivity solution that is Mobility Friendly," said Vanessa Lindsay, Product Marketing Manager at Socket. "Similar to a universal remote control for TVs, the product eliminates the need for multiple charging sources, one for each electronic device a user carries, and it's extremely light and easy to carry."
Socket's Mobile Power Pack will be available during the first week of November 2004 through Socket's website and through Socket's worldwide distribution channels for an MSRP of U.S. $149 and expected street price of U.S. $119 - $129.
