IOGEAR Launches GearPower High Capacity Mobile Power Station

Mobile devices can go longer without an outlet when supported by the new charging station that provides a reliable source of portable power.

Foothill Ranch, Calif. - October 2011 - IOGEAR, a leader in convergence through connectivity, announces the new GearPower High Capacity Mobile Power Station (GMP6600P) a dual -device charging solution for tablets, smartphones, cameras and other mobile USB and Micro -USB devices. Slim and lightweight, the portable power station offers an impressive 6600 mAh (milliampere -hours), enough to give devices a reliable charge when needed most.


Dual power charging on the GMP6600P allows users to revive two devices at once, using the power station's USB 2.1A and 1A power ports. The 1A port will support most cell phones, smart phones, iPhones, iPods, BlackBerry phones, digital cameras and MP3 players. The USB 2.1A port supports iPads, tablets and those devices supported by USB 1A.

"Communication, entertainment and work productivity are all becoming more mobile in nature," said Bill Nguyen, senior marketing manager for IOGEAR. "The new GearPower High Capacity Mobile Power Station efficiently answers one of the basic needs people have when functioning in a technology driven mobile society, how to stay charged."

Lithium polymer battery technology is making storage solutions like the GearPower High Capacity Mobile Power Station, increasingly efficient. Battery draining phone and tablet applications as well as the need for travelers, students, commuters and others to stay connected have increased demand for secondary charging solutions. As more devices are sold, more on -the -go charging will be necessary.

Before use, the GearPower High Capacity Mobile Power Station must be charged by connecting the Micro -USB cable to a computer's USB or by using the Micro -USB wall outlet power adapter. A comforting blue LED battery capacity indicator shares the station's current power level, and unlike some charging pad solutions, there is no threat of over -heating connected devices.

Weighing in at a tote -friendly 0.75 lbs, the station also comes with a carrying case for protection when in transport. The GearPower High Capacity Mobile Power Station has an MSRP of $79.95 and is available now.

GearPower Portable Battery Pack for iPhone/iPod (GMP2000P)
Smaller than its cousin mentioned above, the GearPower Portable iPhone/iPod Battery Pack utilizes Apple's proprietary 30 -pin connector to provide up to four hours of additional talk time, 24 hours of audio playback or eight hours of video playback (depending on usage and phone settings). At only 2.5 by 2.5 in, it's one of the most compact and portable iPhone/iPod charging solutions available. The GMP2000P is available now for $24.95.
