Kopi Has a New Line of USB Chargers

Posted by Alan at 12:21 AM on February 9, 2012

One thing all of us need these days is charging power.  Cameras, MP3 players, smartphones, tablets – they all want a turn on the USB plug in our computer.  When you have a family that demand becomes even greater, because the number of devices multiplies.  Kopi is a new company that is working to solve these problems for us, with innovative new solutions.

They arrived at the Consumer Electronics Show last month in Las Vegas with several items in tow to show off for the TPN cameras.  First up was a power strip with the usual array of outlets, but also with a pair of USB plugs and a unique switch that can be flipped back and forth to tell the USB ports to emulate either an iOS or Android wall charger.  They also showed off a 12 volt USB car charger, a USB wall charger, and a portable battery charger.

You can get details on all of these devices in the video below, as well as find out about pricing and other details.  For additional information you can visit Kopi on the web.
