HOBE SOUND, Fla., July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TakeCharger LLC today announced the launch of ChargerGenie, the world's first tote bag featuring a built-in power strip, which can charge up to eight devices at a time. ChargerGenie debuts today on Indiegogo, where it is available for 60 days at a reduced price of $39 each. In addition, ChargerGenie has been certified in the U.S. and Canada by the leader in safety certification, Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
"As a traveling technology executive and a busy mom, I always had trouble finding enough outlets in airports and hotel rooms to charge multiple devices," said Jeannie DeSanctis, the inventor of ChargerGenie and CEO of TakeCharger. "With ChargerGenie, I created a bag and power strip combo that solves this problem and more. It not only charges multiple devices on the go, it also organizes and stores them, creating a low-tech solution for today's high-tech lifestyles."
ChargerGenie, which is currently available in three colors (black, red or pink cheetah), looks like a fashion tote but features a "secret weapon" -- six power outlets and two USB ports distributed around the lower perimeter of the bag. In the base of the bag, there is a cord that powers ChargerGenie and can be stored inside when not in use.
"We are pleased to announce the availability of ChargerGenie on Indiegogo," said DeSanctis' sister Laura Dugan, co-founder of TakeCharger. "We are looking forward to a strong sales response from our campaign because unlike other crowdfunding campaigns, ChargerGenie has been fully tested and is ready to be delivered to consumers."
Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the industry leader in safety certification, has certified ChargerGenie in the US and Canada. UL considered ChargerGenie so unique and confirmed that it had never seen anything like it before. As a result the organization created new testing and amendments specifically for ChargerGenie.
Additional benefits of ChargerGenie include:
- No More Lost Chargers: Saves money by eliminating the problem of lost chargers, which are frequently left behind in hotel rooms and on the road.
- Easy Grab-and-Go Travel: Fits over the handle of most rolling suitcases and packs easily into any travel bag.
- Reduce Clutter: Improves organization by keeping chargers and accessories neatly stored inside ChargerGenie.
ChargerGenie organizes, stores and charges devices and their respective chargers like: mobile phones; tablets and eReaders like iPad Mini and Kindle; iPod devices; Bluetooth headsets; earbuds; headphones, SD Memory cards, personal gaming devices such as PSP, Leapfrog, Nintendo; and more in one convenient place. ChargerGenie can also power and fully charge any size laptop.
