CHICAGO, Ill. (November 11, 2014) – Lynktec today announced that it has been named a 2015 Consumer Electronics Show Innovation Awards Honoree for its Reeljuice portable power solution. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
Lynktec has partnered with Product Development Technologies (PDT), an award-winning product design and development consultancy, and Telefonix, who develops the cord reel technology found in over 80% of in-flight entertainment systems, to engineer the world’s first backup battery for mobile devices with a new fully retractable, 48-inch cord reel design. With its integrated charging cable and 10 Watt rapid wall charger, up to 10,000 mAh of juice, and slim modular design, the Reeljuice charger is the most functional all-in-one charging solution in the world.
"We set out to deliver the ultimate portable power solution, and with Reeljuice, we've done it!" said Lynktec Co-Founder, Bob Martin. "For the first time, your wall charger, backup battery, and all the cables you need are in a single, easy to carry device."
Reeljuice charging solution is currently available to pre-order on Kickstarter for a limited time. Backers who support the project can take advantage of early discounts on either the Reeljuice 5k or 10k mAh version when they submit a pledge.
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
Lynktec’s Reeljuice portable power solution will be displayed at the 2015 International CES, which runs January 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled New York, which features dozens of exhibitors and networking opportunities, and runs 4:30-7:30 PM on November 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, New York.
