iGo Offers Free Universal Charger to Stranded Nokia Cell Phone Users

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - November 24, 2009) - In response to the recent Nokia cell phone charger recall, iGo®, a leading provider of portable power solutions, has just announced a special offer to benefit stranded Nokia cell phone users. Instead of replacing a defective Nokia charger with a unit from the original manufacturer, iGo is offering those affected by the Nokia recall a FREE iGo wall or car charger (MSRP $19.99). This special offer, available at, is an affordable introduction into the convenient and eco-friendly iGo charging system.

iGo universal chargers, with interchangeable tips, provide one convenient charging solution to power cell phones, PDA's, MP3 players, GPS systems and more. Starting today through December 18, 2009, Nokia cell phone users will receive a free iGo wall or car charger when a Nokia cell phone tip (A105) is purchased -- a total value of more than $30.00. The special offer is open to U.S. residents only.

Compatible with nearly every electronic device on the market, iGo universal chargers and interchangeable tips reduce e-waste by powering multiple devices from one charger. Nokia cell phone users and other device enthusiasts can also help reduce their eco-footprint through iGo's charger recycling program at

"We are pleased to support so many brands and models of devices and to provide gadget lovers with a convenient, affordable and eco-friendly way to power their devices," said Wally Thornton, vice president, product management and supply chain for iGo. "With our intelligent tip technology, an iGo universal charger just might be the last charger you ever buy. This is a great opportunity for people affected by the Nokia cell phone charger recall to power all of their electronic devices for a low price."

In addition to providing a convenient and eco-friendly way to charge electronic devices, iGo recently launched three new power products featuring iGo's proprietary and patent-pending iGo Green™ Technology. Using up to 85% less standby power than standard power management products, the iGo eco-friendly products featuring green technology include the first-ever green laptop charger and the only automatic power-reducing surge protectors on the market, in both four and eight-outlet units.
