Aleratec Introduces Device-Charging Product Line Designed for Airports as TSA Begins Asking Travelers to Turn on Electronics

Chatsworth, CA, July 28 2014 – Aleratec Inc., award-winning designer, developer and manufacturer of Portable Device Management (PDM) charge/sync products for mobile devices and professional-grade duplicators for hard disk drives, USB flash drives and Blu-ray/DVD/CD discs, announces a new line of stationary and portable charge and sync products for airport restaurants and bars, as well as members-only airport lounges.

Products include the Charge and Guard Secure Charge/Sync Cabinet 16, the Charge and Sync Station 16 and the Charge and the Charge and Sync Mini 10, all designed to quickly charge and sync tablets, smartphones, and other USB-charged devices. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has recently begun limited checks for whether travelers’ electronic devices can power on successfully to prove that they are functional. If a traveler is checked, any dead devices would need to be charged, discarded or shipped separately somehow.

"Traveling is stressful enough but imagine having to relinquish your new smartphone or tablet because the battery is too low to power it up," notes Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. "Our Portable Device Management products are built for heavy traffic environments like airports so clubs, restaurants and vendors can offer up to 16 charging ports to their guests."

The Charge and Guard Secure Charge/Sync Cabinet 16 is a heavy-duty, lockable cabinet that charges and syncs up to 16 tablets or other portable devices simultaneously. The all-metal cabinet includes 16 built-in USB ports and supplies a full 2.4 amps per port for rapid charging times. The Charge and Sync Station 16 includes the same fast-charging features of the cabinet but is a portable station with two tablet racks that can be transported from area to area as needed. Both the cabinet and station include Active Smart Charging technology that detects the type of device that is connected and provides the right specification intelligently whether users connect an iOS or Android devices. The third model in the series, the Charge and Sync Station Mini 10, is a compact, portable unit that includes 10 built-in USB ports for rapid charging or syncing.

Features common to all three Aleratec’s PDM products include:

  • Rapid charging of smartphones, tablets and other USB-charged devices
