BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- KwikBoost — a U.S.-based custom charging solution technology manufacturer — today formally introduced the KwikBoost EdgePower™, a unique charging device providing game-changing cordless, portable battery power to student devices regardless of proximity to an electric outlet.
The only product of its kind, KwikBoost EdgePower easily secures to the edges of desks, tables and other common surfaces and was designed to support today's evolving digital learning programs in modern classrooms.
"Schools are continuing to invest in EdTech, so it was important that we provide a charging solution to meet today's classroom needs," said Paul Mecca, KwikBoost vice president of sales and marketing.
This solution is one that will be welcomed in learning spaces across the U.S. According to a 2018 FLI Charge report, charging is the second largest barrier to the successful implementation of one-to-one and bring-your-own-device classroom programs while 64 percent of teachers are frustrated by issues related to power access on a daily basis.
"Chromebooks and tablets have revolutionized the way today's students learn, but until now, the only solution for charging depleted device batteries in classrooms or shared spaces was bulky power strips and trip-prone extension cords," said Paul Roche, president of Luxor, the EBSCO-owned parent company of KwikBoost. "KwikBoost EdgePower creates a safer, simpler, more effective means to powering the devices that help power the minds of the future."
Each KwikBoost EdgePower charging unit features an adjustable clamp compatible with desks and tabletops to conveniently charge Chromebooks, laptops, tablets, smartphones and other battery-powered devices. Batteries that power each unit can be swapped and recharged with the EdgePower base charging station, which fully recharges batteries in two hours.
"We believe this product solves an ongoing need in school districts nationwide, and we look forward to providing a new solution to a challenge teachers face every day in their evolving and technology-rich classrooms," said Mecca.
