CAMARILLO, Calif. -- December 18, 2012
2013 International CES promises to be magnetic.
At next month’s Las Vegas extravaganza, Magnetyze™ by BuQu Tech
(www.BuQuTech/Magnetyze.com) will be in all the right places – on display at
the company’s MGM Grand suite, at the ShowStoppers press event -- January 8,
from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Wynn Hotel/Lafite Ballroom – and at CES
Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES, from 4-7 p.m. on
January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. BuQu Tech is
a recently-formed subsidiary of Battery-Biz^® Inc., the leading U.S.-based
manufacturer and distributor of consumer electronic power accessories.
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
Magnetyze is the first charging platform to enable Android and iPhone users to
share a charger. When it’s time to upgrade to a new smartphone, only the
Magnetyze protective cover or back plate needs to be replaced. The desk stand,
magnetic charging cable and other Magnetyze-branded accessories will continue
to work with any available Magnetyze smartphone case – Android or Apple.
On display at CES for the very first time:
*Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System for Samsung Galaxy S^® III. In its
first bundles for the Android market, BuQu Tech is offering two packages.
The first, the Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System With Replacement Back
Plate, is available for $59.99. Designed for Samsung Galaxy S III users
who prefer a charge-only option, this configuration replaces the phone’s
original rear cover with a back plate that offers seamless attachment to
any Magnetyze charging stand. The back plate comes in two popular colors –
gloss white or metallic blue – and includes a Magnetyze Desk Stand and
magnetic cable. The second – the Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System With
Protective Case – sells for $69.99. This option offers Samsung Galaxy S
III users the ability to both charge and sync their data and protects
their phone against daily hazards with a sleek, ultra-slim and light
protective cover and polycarbonate bumper that fits over the existing
Samsung phone with the original back cover in place. The protective case
is available in gloss white or gloss black to complement a wide range of
Samsung phones and comes with a Magnetyze Desk Stand and magnetic cable
for easy charging and data sync.
*Magnetyze Magnetic Charging System for iPhone 5. BuQuTech will preview its
Magnetyze bundle for Apple’s latest smartphone, which will go on sale in
early Q2. Tailored to the iPhone 5’s larger form factor and new Lightning
connector, the iPhone 5 bundle contains the Magnetyze protective case,
desk stand and magnetic charging and data sync cable. As with the iPhone
4/4S, users simply slide the iPhone 5 into the lightweight Magnetyze
protective case and attach the polycarbonate bumper over their smartphone.
Magnets integrated into both the case and desk stand enable seamless
attachment and simultaneous charging and data synchronization. Through the
magic of magnetics, users can swivel their Magnetyze-enabled iPhone 360
degrees for both vertical and horizontal use – without detaching the phone
from the stand or disrupting charging or synchronization.
*Magnetyze Extended Battery Magnetic Charging System for the iPhone 4/4S.
For iPhone users wary of seeing just a sliver of white in that battery
meter in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, BuQu Tech will
showcase the newest way to double smartphone runtime. Priced at $89.99,
the system consists of a protective case that includes a built-in extended
lithium-ion battery, shielding the iPhone 4/4S from daily hazards, while
tackling that all-too-common hazard of running out of juice. Sleek, slim
and light with elegant soft-touch finish, the Magnetyze Extended Battery
Magnetic Charging System adds up to 40 hours to the iPhone’s battery life,
10 hours for video and movies and 7 hours of talk time or web browsing.
