Latest offerings range from lightweight solar power banks to a high-capacity laptop charger.
Singapore, 27 April 2015 – Singapore-based company Third Wave Power Pte Ltd today announced the launch of its latest portable chargers, its most diverse range to date. The new collection of products – with prices ranging from US$59 to US$199 – powers a wide range of devices including smartphones, tablets and laptop computers.
The mPowerpad 2 Mini solar charger measures no larger than the palm of a hand but packs 3000 mAh of power, sufficient to charge up to two smartphones. Clad in a water-repelling silicone sleeve, its highly efficient 3.3 watts solar panel charges in under 7 hours under the sun. Weighing just 240 g (0.5 lb), the handy mPowerpad 2 Mini is easy to carry around, slipping unobtrusively into any travel bag.
For outdoor enthusiasts looking for a lightweight, thin and durable solar charger, the mPowerpad 2 Go may just be what they need. Sporting a thickness of just 15 mm (0.6 in.), the 3000 mAh solar charger comes with built-in ring holes that attach to backpacks and windows for charging via carabiners or suction cups. Its 5 watts solar panel charges in just 5 hours in the sun. Sheathed in a water-resistant polyester case, mPowerpad 2 Go also features a zippered pocket behind that holds mobile devices and cables while charging.
Both the Mini and Go solar chargers can also be charged from the wall outlet or USB – making them highly portable and sustainable sources of energy for users on the move, within and without the power grid.
Also featured in the new line-up is the mPowerpad 2 Xpand solar kit. Comprising 26 watts solar panels, Xpand unfolds to capture ample solar energy to recharge high capacity power banks such as the mPowerpack 230 laptop charger. Rugged and housed in a compact zipped case, it is designed for field professionals such as engineers, researchers and photographers who need heavy-duty power for their equipment while working in remote places.
Last but not least, the mPowerpack 230 laptop charger is a high capacity portable charger for laptops and other mobile devices. With a substantial 23000 mAh battery capacity, it is capable of charging a laptop plus two other USB devices all at once. It features a LCD display that lets users easily regulate voltage and monitor battery capacity. The compact mPowerpack 230 is suited for mobile and field professionals who need portable back-up power for their laptops and other mobile devices while on the go.
“With the increasing proliferation of mobile devices, there is a growing demand for portable power both on and off the power grid. Whether it is for the home/urban user, outdoor enthusiast or field professional, our latest range of portable chargers is designed to provide essential back-up power for daily life, outdoor activities, work as well as emergency situations. Combined with our current range of mPowerpad 2 multi-function solar chargers, we now have a diverse line-up of high performance yet affordable portable chargers with one to suit every need.” said VS Hariharan, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Third Wave Power.
