HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --LVCC, CENTRAL
HALL, BOOTH 10404/10415 --VOXX Accessories Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary
of VOXX International Corp.(NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today the launch of the
Champ line of Emergency-Preparedness Gear, with the introduction of three
exciting new products: the Survival Sidekick with integrated Weather Radio,
the Bodyguard Battery Backup and the Survival Skybox Portable AM/FM/NOAA
Weather Radio with Bluetooth Speakers.
"Emergency preparedness is becoming top-of-mind for more and more consumers,"
explained David Geise, President of VOXX Accessories Corporation. "We see it
everyday in news and weather reports around the globe: emergencies happen. The
Champ line gives consumers the tools to be prepared. Champ products are
designed to be easy to use and keep handy, to help consumers deal with the
unexpected and keep themselves and their families safe."
Champ Survival Sidekick with integrated NOAA Radio
The Champ Survival Sidekick 10-in-1 Multi-tool is a single device that helps
consumers stay prepared at home or on the road, with 10 emergency preparedness
tools: a distress light and magnetic base to serve as a beacon on the
roadside, a seatbelt cutter and glass breaker for escaping a vehicle in an
emergency, and a mobile device charging outlet for emergency power to make an
urgent phone call or send a critical message when the phone is running low.
The Champ Survival Sidekick 10-in-1 even includes a hand crank just in case
the battery hasn't been charged, to give the Sidekick enough power to use the
flashlight or give an emergency charge to a mobile device. Also included with
the Sidekick Multi-tool is an AM/FM/Weather radio to provide crucial emergency
weather information when other sources are off-line.
The Champ E-Prep Survival Sidekick uses a familiar flashlight form that makes
it easy to stow and carry. Most importantly, the Survival Sidekick has been
rigorously tested, so it's safe and reliable to use when consumers will need
it the most. The Survival Sidekick with integrated NOAA Radio will be
available in April 2014, and will retail for a suggested price of $49.99.
Champ Bodyguard Battery Backup
Emergencies can also happen on a more individual level, with personal safety
quickly becoming a concern in an unfamiliar environment, such as an unlit
street or a deserted parking lot after-hours. The Champ Bodyguard Battery
Backup provides a built-in flashlight and personal alarm for just such
situations, with a 90db siren to scare off and to signal for help. The
Bodyguard Battery offers support for everyday "emergencies" as well, such as
the red battery icon on a cell phone when an essential call or message is
needed. The Bodyguard Battery Backup will be available in April 2014, and will
retail for a suggested price of $34.99.
Champ Survival Skybox Portable AM/FM/Weather Radio with Bluetooth Speakers
The Survival Skybox portable AM/FM/Weather Radio with alert capability and
Bluetooth wireless speakers is the perfect addition to all households. Not
just for emergencies, the Survival Skybox's Bluetooth wireless feature allows
users to stream music or other audio from their smartphone wirelessly. The
Survival Skybox's suite of essential emergency preparedness tools prepares
consumers for the unexpected. The Survival Skybox delivers weather and news
updates, even when other sources are down, mobile device charging, a built-in
flashlight with emergency beacon, and time/date and temperature info. Best of
all, the Skybox's rechargeable battery can be recharged via AC adapter, or via
the built-in solar panel or crank-powered dynamo for users who find themselves
off the grid. The Survival Skybox Portable AM/FM/Weather Radio with Bluetooth
Speakers will be available April 2014, and will retail for a suggested price
