Two New Kensington® Smart Power Laptop Adapters Provide Unparalleled Compatibility and Quality for 'No Worry Usage' In a Smaller and Lighter

Portable, Simple and Reliable Offering for Complete Power with Pricing that Works with Any Budget

Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple™ computing accessories, today introduced two new additions of Wall Laptop Power Adapters to its current family of smartly engineered power solutions. Whether you are looking for a replacement laptop adapter or a secondary one to conveniently keep in your computer bag, Kensington provides the reliability you need to grab and go in a thin and light form factor.

Kensington laptop adapters accommodate any travel situation, for use in the home, office or airport. The adapters are universally compatible with laptop computers from today's leading manufacturers such as HP®, Compaq®, Dell® and Toshiba®. Kensington's Wall Laptop Power Adapter is a portable, simple and reliable accessory that is ideal for replacing a primary laptop adapter or taking along backup power. Kensington's Wall Laptop Power Adapter with USB Power Port offers dual charging abilities for all USB type of devices, so you don't need to pack multiple chargers. That means maximum productivity - no matter where your "office" or work environment may be.

Regardless of any sudden change in power, you can rest assured that Kensington products can handle the spikes in power draw offering you piece of mind, wherever work takes you. Kensington rigorously tests all of its power products for the following:

  • Burn-in testing to verify long term reliability
  • Dynamic load testing to verify operation when there are large spikes in power requirements
  • Temperature testing with thermocouple attached to device under load to verify case and internal temperature
  • HiPot testing used to verify isolation/insulation

Both of the new Kensington smart power adapters also feature recyclable packaging and are ENERGY STAR® qualified, so they use 30% less energy than conventional adapters and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ENERGY STAR® reports as many as 2.7 billion external power adapters are in use within the U.S., an average of about nine per person. The heavy usage results in as much as 300 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) spent per year in energy consumption, or about 11% of the national electric bill. Current U.S. average cost of electricity is 12 cents per kWh. If everyone switched to Kensington Smart Power adapters, the nation could potentially save as much as 90 billion kWh/year, a monetary equivalent of up to $10.8 billion or $94 per US household3.

"Today's mobile professionals demand performance from their charging devices and the confidence to know they operate safely in a variety of work environments and with different mobile products," said Bonni Silverman, Regional Product Manager, Kensington. "No matter which of our laptop power adapters you are using during travel, you can be confident that technology companions such as a smartphone, PDA or other Bluetooth® device will be charged at all times."

Furthermore, the Consumer Electronics Association's recent July 2010 report indicates that the consumer electronics industry will exceed revenue projections this year with as much as $174.9 billion in U.S. sales. Kensington continuously supports the expanding electronics market by producing the best quality of accessories to complement their use. As laptop purchases swell this year, Kensington's simple and reliable power adapters will help boost productivity of any laptop , in any environment.
