The mobile phone chargers industry is set to undergo a major transformation following the announcement of the imminent adoption of Micro-USB as the universal charging solution by 2012. Mobile phone manufacturers have agreed on a common charging module, the flexible Micro-USB which allows mobile devices to be charged from USB ports available on computers, laptop and other devices
Twin 5V USB Ports - 17.5W - 3500mA - 3.5A
Charges All USB Products
• Mobile phones
• Digital cameras
• Video cameras
• Electric shavers
• Smart tablets
• Handheld devices
• GPS units
• Wireless devices
• Power tools
Never pay to replace a charger again
These patent pending retractable socket range combines an Australian Standard (Approval Certificates) dual 240v power socket with twin USB powered charging outlets for charging devices under the new universal charging guidelines for mobile phones set to come in effect in 2012.
The twin USB powered 5 Volt sockets are perfect for charging mobile phones, including iphones, ipads, ipods, tablets, handheld devices, games, electric shavers, digital cameras, video cameras, mp3 players, GPS navigation devices, etc. No longer do you need those bulky charging transformers that take up too much room on the socket or go missing. Your device plugs straight into the USB socket on the power point and leaves the two 240V plugs free for your normal home appliances.
All our range are direct replacements to the standard Australian double power point. So no messy wiring issues however we do recommend a qualified electrical contractor does the swap for you. Can be installed in minutes!
The new universal charging adoption was designed to use reduce the carbon footprint from the mobile charging transformer industry. After implementation, the plan is projected to bring down production of replacement chargers by as much as 51,000 tons annually. This will eliminate 13.6 million to 21.8 million tons of greenhouse gases emitted during manufacture.
Our sockets are all environmentally friendly with no phantom leakage that is normally associated with charging transformers. Once the retractable doors close after charging the power to the port is cut.
Has your household got multiple iphones or ipods? Kids always taking the chargers? Always searching for the charger? Solve the battle and replace a few of your power points with our sockets for the kitchen bench, bedside the bed, in the bathroom or office.
Amazing Energy Efficiency
Among the first to support this initiative, launched by the GSMAssociation, are the 3 Group, AT&T, HTC, KTF, LG, MobilkomAustria, Motorola, Nokia, NTT Docomo, Orange and Qualcomm. Rogers Wireless, Samsung, Softbank Mobile, Sony Ericsson, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telenor, Telstra, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Apple, NEC, RIM and TI are also in this group.
The group has set an ambitious target that by 2012 a universal charging solution (UCS) will be widely available in the market worldwide and will use Micro-USB as the common universal charging interface. The group agreed that by the 1st January 2012, the majority of all new mobile phone models available will support a universal charging connector and the majority of chargers shipped will meet the high efficiency targets set out by the OMTP (Open Mobile Terminal Platform), the industry body who developed the technical requirements behind UCS.
After implementation, the plan is projected to bring down production of replacement chargers by as much as 51,000 tons annually. This will eliminate 13.6 million to 21.8 million tons of greenhouse gases emitted during manufacture. Mobile Phones wont ship with chargers after this implementation as the Manufacturers assume you have one already. HTC is the first manufacturer to announce it wont include a wall charger with their new phone.
