Sony Transforms On-the-go Power Convenience with New USB Charger

Sony Electronics Asia Pacific ups the notch in on-the-go convenience with its latest USB Charger, which boasts a capacity of 4,000 mAh. Sporting 2 USB ports, it allows customers to power up two mobile devices simultaneously and was developed to meet a growing demand for mobile power on-the go.

According to research conducted by GFK Retail and Technology, the volume of sales units for mobile phones in Asia saw double digit increases of 19.5 per cent while the proportion of smart phones sales as a percentage of mobile phone sales increased 10.1 per cent to 15.7 per cent between January and September 2010. In view of the growth trend for power-hungry smart phones, Sony is committed to providing the latest, innovative and best quality products to support this rising demand for mobile power.

“Users who often carry multiple devices on-the-go will truly appreciate this USB Charger,” says Mr. Takayuki Takemura, Deputy Director, Recording Media and Energy Centre, Sony Electronics Asia Pacific. “It puts them fully in control of their devices, without ever having to worry about running out of battery and disrupting their busy lifestyles,” adds Mr. Takemura.

In addition, Sony’s USB Charger is also equipped with USB Authentication software, allowing instant charging with most USB powered devices such as smart phones, mobile phones, Walkman, iPod, iPad, portable game consoles as well as upcoming models of Cybershot and Handycam with USB power supply function.

The new USB Charger features a conventional AC input that provides fast charging for consumers, along with a detachable USB output module with embedded Li-ion rechargeable battery for portable power supply. It enables consumers to detach and carry just the USB output module when they need extra power on-the-go for their mobile devices.

The USB Portable Power Supply CP-A2L will be launched during IT Show 2011 at a suggested retail price of S$49.90 inclusive of GST.
