RCA Expands Its Industry-Leading Charging Product Line

Stocks in this article: VOXX

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTER HALL, BOOTH 10404 -- RCA builds upon its leadership position in charging products with the addition of three (3) new multiple USB charging accessories that address the rising scarcity of prime power outlet space at home, especially as more and more power-hungry mobile devices compete for a charge. The 2013 product line includes the RCA 4-port USB wall plate charger (WP4UWR and WP4UAR), an easy plug-and-use family charging solution that provides full, fast-speed charging for 4 smartphones or 2 tablets simultaneously, with a patent-pending switch on one outlet that adapts to different device charging circuitries.

RCA is also introducing a wall plate USB charger with nightlight (WP2UNLW and WP2UNLA), a multiple-solution product that optimizes outlet use in high-demand areas of the home, with high-speed 2.1 Amp USB charging for tablets and smartphones and a built-in LED nightlight with auto-light sensor. RCA rounds out the additions to its line with the RCA USB home charger and LED nightlight (USBNLL1) that provides a seamless, discreet dual-solution product for areas of the home where both USB charging and a nightlight are needed, with a design that works in any room, providing soft LED light where needed and convenient 1-Amp device charging.

"There are more cell phones than people in the US today, and millions of tablets, eReaders, and other portable electronic devices on top of that. Almost all of these devices rely on USB charging for power. And for the typical American home, this presents a problem: where are consumers going to charge those devices?" said David Geise, President of VOXX Accessories Corp. "The engineers and designers at RCA studied this problem, examining the requirements of today's devices and the challenges for charging in high traffic settings and where the need for more outlets and more power is especially acute. We believe we have delivered much-needed relief for homes everywhere, with our 2013 charging products."

RCA 4-Port USB Wall Plate Charger (WP4UWR, WP4UAR) The RCA 4-port USB charger is the simplest possible solution to a problem that most modern families face: how to charge the family's portable devices where and when family members want to charge them. Just plug a single RCA 4-port USB wall plate charger into almost any home outlet, and presto: instant high-speed charging for everyone! No more wall adapters hogging an entire outlet. No more waiting for slow-poke chargers to fill up Mom and Dad's phones before you get your turn. And no more chargers that just flat-out don't work with your device. The RCA 4-port USB charger offers four full-speed outlets for simultaneous rapid charging of four 1-Amp devices, like smartphones and eReaders. Two of the ports provide 2.1 Amp charging for simultaneous full-speed charging of two tablets. And the bottom 2.1 Amp outlet can accommodate virtually any USB-charged device on the market today, with a patent-pending switch that adjusts to the different charging circuitries in today's devices—regular chargers can't do this. The WP4UWR (white) and WP4UAR (almond) are available now, with a suggested retail price of $29.99.

Geise continued, "The RCA 4-port USB charger makes a single outlet into the family charging station. Any household with multiple mobile devices to charge—that's virtually every household these days—will benefit from this simple plug-and-use charging solution."
