ECOXGEAR Expands Outdoor Product Line-Up at 2017 CES with Emergency Rugged Power Solutions
LAS VEGAS – Jan. 5, 2017 – ECOXGEAR launches two new emergency power solutions at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, honoring its commitment to deliver rugged solutions for the outdoor world. The EcoJump and EcoBump are the newest additions in a line-up of always dependable solutions from ECOXGEAR.
The ECOXGEAR EcoJump is a safe, convenient and waterproof lithium-powered car jump starter featuring 500 amps at 12 V cranking power, giving users 25 jump starts per charge in a small, portable package. The world’s first emergency jump starter with integrated Bluetooth Low Energy, the EcoJump directly sends its charge status and temperature to any smartphone through the ECOXGEAR app, available for iOS and Android, notifying users when the unit needs recharging or is not a temperature that will allow proper function.
“We are pleased to launch the world’s first Bluetooth Low Energy enabled emergency jump starter. There is nothing worse than having your back up battery fail you during an emergency,” said Greg Fadul, ECOXGEAR CEO. “With our app-enabled jump starter, you are automatically notified when it’s time to charge your EcoJump, ensuring it’s there for you 100% of the time.”
Never get left on the side of the road again with 800 peak amps included in this powerful system, charging any 6.0-liter gas and diesel engine, including cars, trucks, boats and motorcycles. Its safe, mistake-proof design, with reverse polarity notification and spark protection, also includes override options for very low voltage situations, making the EcoJump the perfect solution for anyone.
Additional EcoJump features include a flashlight, strobing hazards and mobile charging. Adding to its superior safety features, the EcoJump comes equipped with a 300-lumen flashlight and strobing hazard, perfect for keeping users safe, while making others aware of a possible hazard late at night. The mobile charging feature is also top-tier, providing 12,000 mAh and two fast-charging USB ports, perfect for juicing up any smartphone or tablet, ensuring users stay connected during any emergency.
ECOXGEAR is also launching the EcoBump at CES, one of the world’s most valuable emergency smartphone chargers on the market. The convenient charger retains its power for five years or more compared to competitor rechargeable powerbanks that lose up to 50 percent of their charge in six months and typically discharge completely in one year. This ensures users are never stranded with a drained powerbank. The primary battery also has an integrated charge connector, adding 900 mAh capacity to any phone and providing seven hours of emergency talk time.
The EcoBump is FAA approved for airline travel and comes complete with a waterproof cap, perfect for any emergency preparedness kit. It can also be easily stored in any purse, backpack, or tool box, ensuring a user’s smartphone is charged when they need it most.
The EcoJump and EcoBump will be available in March for $149.99 and $14.99, respectively. The EcoJump will be offered in a variety of silicon wrap colorways such as orange/black, grey/black, and mint/white. The EcoBump will be available in Lightning, Micro-USB, and USB-C versions.
