Zolt Laptop Charger Plus Named 2015 CES Best of Innovation Awards Honoree

Ultra-Lightweight, Compact Charger Available for Pre-Order January 6

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 4, 2015) - Zolt announced today that it has been named a 2015 CES Best of Innovation Awards Honoree for the Zolt Laptop Charger Plus, a compact, lightweight and stylish mobile charger that allows users to charge their laptop as well as two additional devices -- such as a tablet and smartphone -- all at once. The Zolt Laptop Charger Plus will be available for pre-orders beginning January 6, 2015 on www.gozolt.com and will be exhibiting at the 2015 International CES at Eureka Park, Sands Level 2, Space #75208.

Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media. The Zolt Laptop Charger Plus was chosen as a leader in outstanding design and engineering among consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

"Our team of power systems experts and industrial design engineers decided to reimagine the bulky and heavy power adapters, also termed as 'power bricks.' We wanted a sleek and elegant design to blend into the lifestyle of today's consumers and power their multiple mobile devices including a laptop simultaneously. It is gratifying to receive a resounding endorsement of our efforts." said Zolt President and CEO Dinesh Ramanathan. "We are excited to demonstrate the results of our work to members of the press and industry leaders at CES."

Laptops, and other mobile devices, continue to get smaller and sleeker, but their chargers have remained bulky, heavy and easily tangled. Four times smaller and three times lighter than current laptop chargers, the Zolt Laptop Charger Plus is the laptop charger reimagined. At just three inches long and three ounces, its sleek design allows users to carry Zolt in a purse, backpack or pocket, making it the perfect charging companion for work, home and travel. Each Zolt Plus features three USB ports, giving users an all-in-one charger for three devices, while only needing one two-pronged AC wall outlet. Zolt's patented ERC™ (Efficient Resonant Control) technology automatically regulates power for each connected device, ensuring fastest charging while preserving battery life. 

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.

At the 2015 International CES, which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Zolt Laptop Charger Plus will be displayed in Space #75208 in Eureka Park. Honorees will also be displayed at the 2015 International CES Innovation Awards Showcase, located at CES Tech West, in Sands Expo Center Level 2, Booth #75545, and featured online at CESweb.org/Innovation.
