Unique All-in-One Design Offers Ultimate Power and Performance for Three Devices at Once, Including Top Selling Windows-Based Laptops, iPad, iPhone, and Many Other Mobile Devices

Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ computing accessories for the mobile consumer, today announced the AbsolutePower™ Laptop, Phone, Tablet Charger, the first compact charger of its kind with simultaneous triple charging ability. The industrial strength charger offers 100W of power and is compatible with top selling Windows-based laptops, smartphones like the iPhone, BlackBerry Torch, Sony Experia, and more, as well as iPad and iPad 2, BlackBerry Playbook and Samsung Galaxy tablets. Mobile professionals can leave multiple chargers behind and no longer need to worry about making room for additional bulky batteries with AbsolutePower. It intelligently charges up to three devices at the same time and its light weight and small size make it easy to carry. Sitting on a desk, AbsolutePower only takes up 12% more space than an iPhone that it charges.

Designed for convenience and nearly all mobile power needs, the product features a compact form factor with a scratch resistant exterior and aids in thermal cooling. AbsolutePower is not only a superior power supply; it’s environmentally friendly as well. As the premium offering in the award winning Kensington Smart Power family of laptop adapters, it is physically packaged in recycled materials and built to help reduce a user’s carbon footprint by providing energy efficiently. In addition, AbsolutePower is competitively priced, similar in cost to less capable mobile power adapters on the market today.

Mobile professionals are relying on multiple computing devices for work and play more than ever. Global forecasts from Gartner indicate that year over year tablet growth for 2010 through 2011 is as much as 309%. An estimated 387 million laptop and 64 million tablet sales are expected in the year 2011 alone. AbsolutePower meets the rapidly increasing demand for superior accessories that are as easy to use and effective in performance as the laptops, smartphones, and tablets it works to empower.    

“AbsolutePower is a truly unique product that offers mobile professionals a huge convenience.  It’s powerful enough to charge three of the most often used mobile platforms today, all at the same time,” said Peter Zan, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington. “And because it’s compact and light enough to easily fit in a briefcase or purse, it’s the ideal companion to today’s laptops, smartphones and tablets, so they always operate at peak performance—AbsolutePower’s affordability and green design just add to its ingenuity.”
