POWERGO is a highly portable 3-in-1 solution for on-the-go professionals which features a powerful powerbank, a wireless Bluetooth speakerphone as well as a removable “earbud” Bluetooth headset, all in a durable metal package.

Platform2 International Limited / IUI Audio Inc. announced today that it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for its “POWERGO”, a highly-portable power bank with wireless Bluetooth speaker/speakerphone features as well as a removable “earbud” Bluetooth headset. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a distinguished panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media trade to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

Business travelers require a high-performance, durable and striking design for their productivity tools, which are routinely used in customer presentations. POWERGO is engineered to exceed these tough and challenging requirements. POPWERGO combines three functions – high-capacity power bank, Bluetooth speaker/speakerphone and ear-bud headset into one integrated product, to meet the needs of the on the go professional.

POWERGO is encased in a beautiful elegant aluminum metal case, sized perfectly to fit in a briefcase or purse with the dimensions of a smartphone. POWERGO integrates a 5200mAh power bank for powering and charging the smartphone and Bluetooth ear-bud headset to ensure they are always paired and always charged. The Bluetooth ear-bud is stowed in the body of the POWERGO when not in use. Once removed, POWERGO uses a specially developed intelligent swapping algorithm to switch the Bluetooth channel between speaker and earpiece immediately while maintaining crystal clear communication. These integrated design features help to maintain the sleek elegance of this product, protect the removable ear-bud and provide a stylish accessory for the executives on the go.

To ensure POWERGO is easy to use and not inadvertently turned on or controlled, the control buttons are placed at the top using highly durable slide switches. To make Bluetooth pairing simple and reliable, the product has integrated NFC “touch to pair” technology with sensor installed at the bottom of the unit, under plastic to prevent scratching the smartphone or tablet.

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) ®, the producer of the International CES, the global gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.

Platform2 International Limited – “POWERGO” will be displayed at the 2015 International CES, which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the Sand’s CES Convention Space, booth # 74561.

Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace and unique/novel features present.

Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services coming to market.
