myCharge Wins iLounge 2013 CES Best of Show Award

myCharge, leaders in portable power for today’s mobile consumers, today was named an iLounge 2013 CES Best of Show Award Winner. At the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), myCharge is previewing five new lifestyle collections, comprised of more than a dozen new products, designed for a variety of mobile lifestyles — from the business traveler to the college student, the on-the-go mom to the gadget connoisseur, to those who work outdoors or live life to the extreme. The newest myCharge products can be viewed at the Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, Booth #4014, from January 8 – 11, 2013.

The iLounge 2013 CES Best of Show Award honored myCharge for its new myCharge Freedom Powercase, which embodies the highest level of innovation in portable charging cases — the perfect balance between protection, function and fashion. iLounge, Inc. is the exclusive partner of the Consumer Electronics Association for the iLounge Pavilion, a collection of iPad, iPhone, iPod, and Mac products that is now the largest dedicated exhibition area at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

“We’re thrilled that myCharge was selected from among thousands of products at CES as an iLounge Best of Show Award Winner. We developed the new generation of myCharge solutions around real-world behaviors of today’s mobile consumers to enhance and maximize the user experience,” said Ron Ferber, CEO, myCharge. “While smartphones and tablets have become increasingly universal across all facets of our society, needs and usage habits vary from person to person. Our new myCharge products deliver the most convenient, most reliable sources of portable power for all the different ways people power their digital life."

myCharge Freedom Powercase

Each myCharge Freedom Powercase is designed with a level of protection unmatched in today’s marketplace; no fear in the event you drop your phone once or twice (a day)!

myCharge Freedom cases provide the best user experience as a result of:

  • Easy on/easy off, single molded construction: unlike competitive models that come in two parts, myCharge Freedom Powercase is one piece, so there’s no hassle, no struggle and nothing to lose or forget.
  • Quick charging: charges your smartphone at the same speed as the supplied factory charger that came with your phone…like plugging right into the wall outlet.
  • Exclusive for iPhone 5: the exclusive myCharge Freedom cable system provides instant charging with no blockage of your smartphone speakers or headphone jack.
  • Exclusive for Samsung Galaxy: the exclusive myCharge Freedom retractable connector seamlessly integrates with the case.

The proprietary exoskeleton design of myCharge Freedom Powercase offers retail partners true product customization at a level never before experienced, allowing them to offer exclusive varieties of myCharge Freedom Powercase to their customers. The myCharge Freedom Powercase goes way beyond simply providing custom color options by offering retailers unique textures, patterns and finishes as endless as the imagination can conjure.

myCharge Freedom Powercase will be available in three versions — 1500mAh for iPhone 5, 2000mAh for iPhone 5 and 2500mAh for Samsung Galaxy — in a wide array of colors, textures and finishes. myCharge Freedom 1500 will retail for $79.99 and myCharge Freedom 2000 for $99.99 with both models available in March 2013. The myCharge Freedom 2500 will retail for $99.99 and be available May 2013.

myCharge portable power packs and cases are found at retailers nationwide including Amazon.com, Best Buy, Finish Line, Fry’s, Macy’s, Meijer, Staples, and more. For more information, please visit http://www.myCharge.com.

Every year, iLounge’s editors work extended hours—starting weeks before major trade shows—trying out new products that are debuting for Apple’s iPod, iPhone, iPad, and Mac. After visiting literally hundreds of booths at the 2013 International CES and surveying thousands of products, iLounge editors discuss and debate the merits of new releases, selecting only the very best ones for their awards: full CES Best of Show Winners offer the rare combination of great design, features, and pricing, while CES Best of Show Finalists demonstrate excellence in two of those categories but fall a little short in the third.

iLounge, the world’s leading independent review of Apple hardware, accessories and software, has covered thousands of different products since 2001. Founded only days after Apple announced the first iPod in 2001, iLounge has exploded in popularity, today boasting millions of visitors and tens of millions of page views each month. Praised for years as "the ultimate in product reviews and tutorials on all things iPod," iLounge and its team have been spotlighted by the Associated Press, CNBC, Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and many other leading publications.
