Under the terms of the LOI, VASC will distribute the Duo Slim, a 2-in-1 hi-fidelity Bluetooth enabled speaker system and fast-charging case for iPhone® 7.
The Duo Slim integrates a Bluetooth-enabled hi-fidelity speaker system and a 2500mAh battery in an ultra-thin cellular phone case. The Duo Slim was created with on-the-go lifestyles in mind to provide an immersive audio experience loud enough to fill any room, while also providing more than a full charge to the iPhone.
"We are very excited for the opportunity to enter into the cellular phone case category by partnering with PERI, Inc. to deliver the DUO Slim, a 2-in-1 hi-fi speaker and fast-charging battery cell phone case," said Tom Malone, President, VOXX Advanced Solutions Corporation.

The Duo Slim allows for digital audio playback directly from the iPhone to the Duo Slim's hi-fidelity speakers via a docked iPhone lightning connection. Users can also use the Duo Slim as a detachable speaker by connecting with any Bluetooth-enabled device for playing music or to enhance phone calls with built-in microphone and speaker phone capability. The onboard 2500mAh battery provides 100 percent added battery to the iPhone or power to enjoy more than 10 hours of audio playback. With PERI's advanced power management technology, users can simultaneously charge the Duo Slim and docked iPhone via Micro USB charging in half the time of other leading battery cases.
