Panamax’s Newest Series of Power Products Surges Ahead of Competition to Win the Best in Show Award at CE Week 2014

Panamax’s Power360 series debuted at CE Week 2014 and walked away with the Home A/V Accessories Best in Show Award.

PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA — Votes are in and Panamax left the judges in awe with the launch of their innovative new line of affordably priced retail products designed to protect and charge all electronic devices. The Power360 series by Panamax debuted at CE Week 2014 in New York City’s Metropolitan Pavilion.

“We’re thrilled to win a Best in Show Award at CE Week this year,” John Benz, the director of power and accessories at Core Brands, stated. “With the debut of the Power360 series, consumers no longer have to worry about the safety of their electronics when plugging into an outlet. From home theatres to Wi-Fi routers, the Power360 is equipped with our reputable Panamax technology consumers can trust against any electrical mishap.”

The Power360 series comes in models for every household. The wall-mounted “TAP” unit is designed with six surge-protected 120V outlets plus two USB ports sharing a 2 amp capacity, making it the perfect charging station for any smartphone or tablet. Retailing at $29.99, the TAP design also features a perfect groove on top that allows consumers to rest both their small and large devices while charging.

The “SIX” power strip has six side-by-side surge protected outlets, an integrated 2 Amp USB charger feeding two ports, and a coaxial in/out connection that protects the signal for the cable or satellite box. The USB charger can be extended to a table top with a micro USB cable, delivering ultimate flexibility that allows consumers to easily charge desktop devices without having to get on their hands and knees to plug them in. Retailing at $45.99, the SIX also features mounting holes so it can be fastened to a wall for convenience.

For larger workstations, or areas with a lot of devices, the $59.99 “EIGHT” combines eight surge-protected outlets with two, 2 Amp detachable USB chargers, each with two ports for a total of four simultaneous USB connections, plus the coaxial in/out for signal protection. It is shorter and wider than the SIX, and can similarly be mounted to a wall.

Each product features Panamax’s trusted SmartGuard technology to monitor incoming power and safeguard against over-voltage or brownout conditions. The units will automatically cut power to equipment if voltage is too high or too low and reset power when voltage returns to normal.

For complete peace of mind, Panamax “Circle of Protection” LED provides consumers with three vital pieces of information in real-time. The Protection indicator ensures that connected devices are protected from power surges.  The Voltage indicator confirms that the unit is operating correctly and delivering the right amount of power, and the Wiring indicator shows that the home’s wiring is performing safely.

Panamax is the country’s pre-eminent designer and manufacturer of electronic and electrical protection, filtration and control products. For over 30 years the company has achieved a reputation for its unique solutions to the worldwide problem of power disturbances and has earned numerous industry awards for quality. Panamax has also been recognized for its innovative Lifetime Warranty on almost every unit.

Each year, CE Week Exhibits and Conferences feature the industry’s greatest products and technologies. However, only a few of them walk away with the highly coveted “Best In Show” Award for their specific product category. To select the winners, Dealerscope editors surveyed the new products and judged them based on several criteria, including usability, design, innovation, important features and overall user value.
