Avenel, N.J. - Mizco International has added a line of universal tablet accessories.
The products will be marketed under the company's Digipower, iEssentials and Travelocity brands. All of the new accessories, according to Mizco president and CEO Albert Mizrahi, are designed to work with Apple's iPad as well as Android-based tablets.
The new iEssentials universal neoprene tablet cases are available in a zipper model and a sleeve model. The zipper case features a zipper pocket for storage of cables and other accessories, and the sleeve case features a fold-over closure and is reversible. Both models are available in 7-inch and 10-inch sizes, for $9.99 and $14.99 respectively.
The new Travelocity Travel Tablet case series features travel-friendly, form-fitted neoprene cases in SKUs designed to fit all 7- to 8-inch and 9- to 10-inch tablet models. They have heavy-duty zippers and closed-seam construction for security, and form-fitting neoprene and a cushioned interior for added protection.
The cases are slim and small enough to fit inside another travel bag. They are available in black, blue, navy, red, purple, pink, blue plaid, red plaid, white polka-dot, houndstooth, pink polka-dot, red hearts, cheetah print, zebra stripe and color hearts designs. Pricing will be announced.
Additionally, the Travelocity Waterproof series includes a universal tablet case with watertight closures, control access through clear window, an adjustable neck or shoulder strap, and built-in UV protection.
Also new is the Digipower Cross-Brand tablet charger with a three-position Smart Switch that allows it to optimally charge USB-powered tablets from major manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, HTC and BlackBerry.
Providing up to 2.1 amps of power, the charger features a flip-up power plug and over-voltage, over-current and short-circuit protection in an ultra-compact form factor. It will retail for $29.99.
"The market for both Apple and Android-based tablets continues to grow and expand at a dramatic rate and so too does the demand for the accessories that complement these tablets," Mizrahi said. "At the same time, our retailers are being very careful with their inventory-management programs. Our new line of universal tablet accessories dramatically simplifies their ordering and inventory management, enabling them to carry one or more brands of universal tablet accessories that work with both tablet platforms."
