TYLT’s mobile accessory line will be on display at the 2015 International CES, January 6-9, 2015.
LOS ANGELES - November 12, 2014-TYLT, a leader in portable power and wireless charging, today announced that for the fourth year in a row it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for the new VU SOLO and VU Wireless Charging Car Mount. TYLT’s products will be on display at the 2015 International CES (South Hall 3 - Booth 30906) from January 6-9 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Kannyn MacRae, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at TYLT, said: “TYLT entered the wireless charging space in early 2013 with the original VU, which was a game-changer thanks to its unique angled design. Since then, we have continued to develop innovative products in the wireless charging space and are proud to be recognized by the industry for our achievements. The VU SOLO and VU Wireless Car Charging Mount take TYLT’s wireless product offerings to an entirely new level and we're looking forward to showcasing them and more at the 2015 CES.”
TYLT’s VU SOLO ($39.99) provides users with an affordable wireless charging solution that makes charging easier than ever with its patent-pending alignment ledge. A physical marker shows you exactly where to place your device in order to align it with the single QiTM coil to initiate charging. Any micro-USB cable will power the charging pad, which provides a 1 Amp charge and 5 watts of power to your device once connected. The SOLO features an anti-slip silicone surface, 5 foot charging cable, built-in ventilation, and a micro-gel suction base.
The VU Wireless Charging Car Mount ($79.99) boasts three overlaid charging coils that ensure QiTM-enabled phones will connect and charge regardless of phone size or orientation, and its spring loaded arms securely grip phones with up to 6” displays. Mount the device to your dashboard or windshield with the strong Micro-Gel suction cup, and position your phone in horizontal or landscape view with the 180-degree rotating mount. Products entered into the CES Innovation Awards are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media. The prestigious awards recognize and honor outstanding design and engineering innovation in cutting edge consumer electronics across 28 product categories. Entries are evaluated on the following criteria:
Engineering, aesthetic and design qualities
The product's intended use/function and user value
How the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace
Unique and novel features
Both products will be available by the end of 2014 from TYLT’s online store. CES attendees can visit TYLT in South Hall 3 at Booth 30906 from January 6-9, 2015 in Las Vegas. TYLT will also be exhibiting at Pepcom’s Digital Experience! on January 5, 2015 also in Las Vegas.
