The Joy Factory Named as CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Award Honoree
IRVINE, Calif.--(LadyDragon.com)29/11/11--The Joy Factory, Inc., a leader in lifestyle-driven digital device accessories, today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its Zip Touch-n-go™ Multi-Charging Station. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 product categories. The Joy Factory will be exhibiting at CES, Jan. 10-13, 2012 at booth no. 5635.
Zip Touch-n-go Multi-Charging Station features the latest breakthrough in conductive charging technology. Effortlessly combining form and function, the Zip features a sleek black charging pad design with multiple magnetic Mini USB, Micro USB and 30-pin ZipTail charging receivers compatible with todays smart devices.
The Joy Factory is honored that the Zip Touch-n-go is being recognized for its product design and engineering by this esteemed group, said Miranda Su, executive vice president of The Joy Factory and consumer electronics veteran. The Joy Factory designed the Zip to offer consumers the ability to easily charge an arsenal of mobile devices including smart phones, cameras, and e-readers in a way that is modern, effortless and without clutter.
The Zip Touch-n-go is bundled with ultra-short, tangle-proof ZipTails which are equipped with rounded magnetic chargers at the end and connect to any of the dimpled spots on the main charging pad. It also allows consumers to pick up a phone call immediately without worrying about disconnecting or reconnecting due to cable-length constraints. The device automatically resumes charging as the ZipTail reattaches.
By using a magnetic conductive charging technique and connecting the ZipTails directly to the device, the Zip reduces energy loss and provides a quick charge. And with the included 2100mA power adapter, the Zip Touch-n-go can charge up to three cellular phones at onceor more, depending on the power transformer on the device.
The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the worlds largest consumer technology tradeshow, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. The Best of Innovations honor is awarded to the products with the highest judges scores and will be featured in the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase at the 2012 International CES.
