mophie Helps Support Cash & Rocket 2014 Tour with Release of Limited Edition Powerstation Designed by Valentino

mophie, the #1 selling mobile battery case in North America and innovator of power and storage solutions for mobile devices, has teamed up with the revered house of Valentino to create a limited edition mophie powerstation. This unique cross-industry collaboration among two game-changing brands comes in the name of charity, benefiting the Cash & Rocket 2014 Tour with proceeds from the sale of each powerstation going to three organizations that bring aid to women and children: Shine on Sierra Leone, OrphanAid Africa and Sumbandila.

“In the mobile world, mophie is known for being style-forward, so having the opportunity to partner with such an established house like Valentino is an landmark event for mophie,” said Shawn Dougherty, COO and Co-Founder of mophie. “But at the end of the day, bringing our communities together to support several amazing causes is what makes this project even more special.”

Inspired by Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2014 Rouge Absolute collection, the compact, glossy finished powerstation is part of a special Capsule Collection, created exclusively for the Cash & Rocket project, and cloaked in iconic Valentino red. The product design is based on mophie’s powerstation 4000 model, a mobile battery capable of quickly powering virtually any USB device in the world, and will come housed in exclusive packaging.

Only 500 units were created, with no plans to reproduce this specific collaboration in the future.

The Cash & Rocket Tour brings together some of the world’s most powerful women who will unite across Europe to raise global awareness and funds for the three aforementioned charities. A number of the Valentino-designed mophie powerstations will also be auctioned off when the Cash & Rocket Tour reaches London to host a gala, closing out the tour on June 8th.

The limited edition mophie powerstation will be available to purchase at www.mophie.com, Valentino’s online shop (www.valentino.com) and several Valentino boutiques throughout Europe.
