LA-based Specialists in Rechargeable Battery Solutions Challenge Market Leadership with Higher Capacity and Qi Inductive Wireless Charging
LOS ANGELES – Jan. 6, 2016 – Nyko Technologies today announced the first details of their new line of power accessories for iPhone at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. After making its mark as the first company to create wireless controller chargers for video game consoles and patent holders of charging technology that utilizes dongles, the LA-based battery solutions expert is now expanding to offer power cases for the iPhone 6 and 6S. The new products include the Power Shield case, coming in a variety of power capacities up to 3500 mAh, and the Power Shield Q case with Qi inductive wireless charging and 2200 mAh capacity. The Q Shield was also announced, which simply adds Qi inductive wireless charging capabilities to an iPhone 6 or 6S in a slim design. Conference attendees seeking to get a first-hand look at the new hardware can find Nyko at Tech East in the North Tower of Westgate Hotel, Suite 12121, on January 6-9. Members of the press who would like to schedule a personal demo may submit their request by emailing email@example.com.
“Nyko has built a strong reputation for making high-quality rechargeable battery products in the video game space with local operations and distribution partnerships with the biggest retailers in North America,” said Nyko director of marketing, Chris Arbogast. “Consumers need a strong, local brand with experience and brand recognition making battery products that are safe, dependable, and durable, which we’ve achieved over the years. We now want to channel our expertise to simplify and enhance the way iPhone users interact with their phones through design, not only to get more power out of them.”
