Smartphone users who appreciate the “grab and go” convenience of the Magnetyze™ by BuQu Tech Magnetic Charging System now have two new ways to connect and charge.
With the pre-sale availability of the Magnetyze AC Wall Charger and Magnetyze Car Charging Stand beginning today at www.BuquTech/Magnetyze.com, iPhone 4/4S and Samsung Galaxy S® III users alike can share a charge from the road or any AC outlet. All that’s needed is a phone equipped with a Magnetyze protective case or back plate.
Magnetyze by BuQu Tech applies patent-pending magnetics technology to keep iPhone and Android smartphones charged, synchronized and ready to “grab and go.” The high- performance Magnetyze platform eliminates multiple cords, clumsy cradles and the need for new charging accessories with every smartphone upgrade. When it is time to upgrade to a new smartphone, only the Magnetyze protective sleeve needs to be replaced. All Magnetyze-branded products and accessories will continue to work with any available Magnetyze smartphone case – Android or iPhone.
Priced at $44.99, the Magnetyze AC Wall Charger has no clumsy cords or cables to clutter desks or countertops. Users simply plug the charger directly into any standard AC outlet and then magnetically attach their iPhone and/or Galaxy phones to the charger. An integrated 2.1 amp USB port enables a second phone to be charged simultaneously. As with other Magnetyze charging products, 360-degree rotation provides easy horizontal or vertical screen views while the phone is charging.
At $54.99, the sturdy Magnetyze Car Charging Stand enables busy travelers to charge any iPhone 4, iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone equipped with a Magnetyze case or backplate. The magnetic stand attaches to the windshield, dashboard or console and comes with a power cord and 12V adapter plug. An integrated 1 amp USB port enables users to charge an additional USB device while their phone is being charged, and 360-degree rotation provides easy horizontal or vertical screen views during charging.
“The ideal charging solution for individuals and families on the go who use both iPhone and Android smartphones is now even better,” said Ophir Marsh, CEO, BuQu Tech, which introduced the Magnetyze family to the iPhone 4/4S and Samsung Galaxy S III in 2012 and will add a magnetic charging system for the iPhone 5 in Q2 2013. “Whether it’s plugging your Magnetyze Wall Charger directly into a standard AC wall outlet and using the magic of magnetics to attach your phone for a full charge, or topping your battery off in the car on the way to work or school, Magnetyze provides the flexibility people want and need in a single platform everyone can use.”
