Nothing sidelines your day quicker than a dead battery on your mobile device. myCharge is thrilled to unveil five new lifestyle collections comprised of more than a dozen new products to meet the diverse needs and demands of today's on-the-go, constantly connected digital lifestyle. The newest myCharge products are being showcased at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, Booth #4014, from January 8 - 11, 2013.

At CES 2013, myCharge is previewing five new collections designed for a variety of mobile lifestyles - from the business traveler to the college student, the on-the-go mom to the gadget connoisseur, to those who work outdoors or live life to the extreme:

myCharge Hub Series

The "Swiss Army Knife" of portable power devices for the person who relies on their gadgets everyday and in every way. With all cables and connectors built-in, all three products in the myCharge Hub Series include an Apple® Lightning connector, Micro-USB cable and USB port on-board that can charge up to three devices at once, providing the ultimate in portable power for virtually any mobile device (smartphones, tablets, e-readers and more).

The myCharge AMPxt has built-in USB ports to allow users to charge hundreds of different mobile devices. Also features integrated, quick-charge wall prongs. Ideal for those who lead a very active lifestyle and/or work in an environment that demands durability and performance.

myCharge Freedom Powercase Series

Today's smartphones are an extension of our personalities, allowing us to stay in touch with friends and family, take pictures, listen to music, play games - to live our lives. For many people, when their battery dies, for all intents and purposes they cease to exist...until they've recharged.

The new myCharge Freedom Powercase Series embodies the highest level of innovation in portable charging cases - the perfect balance between protection, function and fashion.

Protection: Each myCharge Freedom Powercase is designed with a level of protection unmatched in today's marketplace; no fear in the event you drop your phone once or twice (a day)!

Function: myCharge Freedom cases provide the best user experience as a result of:

  • Quick charging: charges your smartphone at the same speed as the supplied factory charger that came with your phone...like plugging right into the wall outlet.
  • Exclusive for iPhone 5: the exclusive myCharge Freedom cable system provides instant charging with no blockage of your smartphone speakers or headphone jack.
  • Exclusive for Samsung Galaxy: the exclusive myCharge Freedom retractable connector seamlessly integrates with the case.

Fashion: The proprietary exoskeleton design of myCharge Freedom Powercase offers retail partners true product customization at a level never before experienced, allowing them to offer exclusive varieties of myCharge Freedom Powercase to their customers. The myCharge Freedom Powercase goes way beyond simply providing custom color options by offering retailers unique textures, patterns and finishes as endless as the imagination can conjure.
