American Power Conversion's New Mobile Power Pack Keeps Mobile Devices Powered Up
APC's Advanced Battery Technology Helps Power Today's Mobile Electronics
WEST KINGSTON, R.I. - June 12, 2006 - American Power Conversion (Nasdaq: APCC) (APC), a world leader in power availability and protection solutions, today announced the addition of the Mobile Power Pack to its award -winning line of mobility solutions. The Mobile Power Pack's sophisticated design complements today's mobile devices including MP3 players, mobile phones and portable gaming systems. Smaller than a deck of cards, this innovative device delivers hours of extra battery power for those gadgets consumers need most while on the go.
"Mobile device users continuously face the risk of running out of power. With the increasing dependence on these devices for work and play, the need for power is vital," said Joe Loberti, general manager of APC's Consumer Network Solutions group. "APC has built upon its expertise in power availability and protection to create the Mobile Power Pack. Consumers can rely on this rechargeable battery to keep their essential mobile devices operating long after an internal battery would have run out of power."
APC utilizes lithium polymer battery cells, an advanced battery technology with a higher power density than traditional lithium ion cells, to create a compact solution with high power output. Compatible with a wide range of mobile devices, the Mobile Power Pack can generate up to 55 hours of additional music time for an MP3 device such as the iPod® Nano, and 8 to 10 hours of additional email and talk time for smartphones, such as a BlackBerry® or Palm® Treo™. Weighing slightly more than 3 ounces, the Mobile Power Pack is a necessity for any mobile user.
The product includes the Mobile Power Pack, an AC to USB power adapter, and a USB to Mini B power cable. The Mobile Power Pack charges most mobile devices using the manufacturer cables; however, APC recommends the use of APC's USB Charging Cables (sold separately) to ensure compatibility. Currently available in North America, the Mobile Power Pack (UPB10) carries an estimated resale price of $69.99.
