Black & Decker introduced three portable power supplies to the market this fall. They are designed for use with cellphones, MP3 players, laptops, digital cameras and other portable CE devices.
All three use a nickel-metal hydride battery, and they offer a 120-volt AC and USB outlet.
The CPI10B 10-watt cordless rechargeable power supply is the smallest of the three, and it is engineered to run handheld CE devices for up to two hours. It features a three-stage battery-status indicator and has a $39.99 suggested retail.
The CPI20XB 20-watt power supply features a run time of four hours and a three-stage battery-status indicator. It has a $49.99 suggested retail.
Finally, the CPI100B 100-watt power supply will run a CE device for up to nine hours. It ups the battery-status indicator to five stages and has a $99.99 suggested retail.
All three products are currently available and come with a drawstring bag.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
