Spring is all about new. New flowers blossoming, new high school and college graduates ready to conquer the world, and unfortunately those fresh new screw-ups when it comes to buying mom the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
Luckily with the new OWC Garage Sale, now is the perfect time to give one of those new graduates the perfect tool to help them during their next adventure and also to give mom a “do-over” gift that keeps giving to prove your love and appreciation for her isn’t limited to just one day.
Check out these deals for great ideas on perfect gifts that won’t break the bank:
Be sure to check out our Garage Sale page for many more great deals. And as always, you’d better act fast – items are “first come, first served” and of varying limited quantities. Numbers are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and ‘disappear’ as sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.
If you’re a reader of the OWC Blog, then you probably already know about the Power2U – the first UL listed AC/USB wall outlet on the market that charges four devices simultaneously. And since its inception in December 2011, the Power2U has seen its share of imitators. And although they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we wanted to show that while there are copycats, there simply is no substitute for the Power2U when it comes to overall performance combined with efficiency, design and convenience.
In fact, we did some competitive analysis at OWC headquarters to see how the Power2U stacks up to three competitors and the included Apple factory adapters when charging an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4. Article Continues…
Just because the busy 2013 edition of the International CES is in our rear-view mirror doesn’t mean it’s time to rest for Team OWC. After introducing a bevy of new products at the expo last week in Las Vegas, we’ve already begun preparation for Macworld | iWorld expo!
The expo will run from January 31 to February 2 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and Other World Computing will be there in Booth 401 showing off all the new products that we announced at CES, and much more. If you plan on attending, free expo passes are still available so you can get a up close and personal look at our new items such as:
• Power2U 20 Amp model (Plus, if your phone or USB device is running low on power, you can charge up while you chat!)
• Mercury Viper
• NuMount Pivot wall mount and desk mount
• NuGuard KX
• Pad Protector mini
All these will be on display along with many existing storage and accessory products from OWC and Newer Technology. And we’ll also be showing our video of a NuGuard KX-protected iPhone surviving an extreme drop from our on-site wind turbine.
So stop by and see all the new tech goodies while talking all things Mac with our expert tech team!
It may not be spring yet, but that hasn’t stopped the folks here at Other World Computing from feeling especially green this week.
Aside from our Platinum Certified green headquarters in Woodstock, Illinois, OWC also strives to make products that have a minimal environmental impact. And a new feature shared with media and attendees at this year’s International CES exhibit – the 2013 International CES Green Guide – recognizes some of OWC’s “green” innovations.
Among the products featured in the 2013 International CES Green Guide are the Newer Technology Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet and the NuGreen LED Desk Lamp. The Power2U was featured for its Smart Power design only that outputs enough charging power required by the attached device and spring-loaded Safety Shutters that turn power off to the USB ports to eliminate “vampire” energy draw when a connecting cable is removed.
The NuGreen also was highlighted for its efficiency. The NuGreen uses only 3.6 watts total power, saving both money and the environment. The NuGreen’s LEDs last up to 45,000 use hours – up to 22 times longer than tradition bulbs – and can be recycled because they contain no mercury.
The International CES Green Guide a self-guided tour of each exhibit hall to highlight the green and environmentally-friendly products, and OWC is one of just a handful of companies out of thousands in attendance to be featured. The technology-related trade show began Jan. 8 and runs through Jan. 11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Newer Technology, Inc. announced today that it will introduce its next generation Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet in Other World Computing’s (OWC) booth #5812, LVCC North Hall, during the Consumer Electronics Show which begins tomorrow in Las Vegas. Designed to enhance living and working spaces by eliminating the need for power adapters, the Power2U AC/USB outlet now features NEC tamper-resistant receptacles and is available in a new 20Amp model for residential and commercial, hospitality, education, and municipal applications. Visitors to the OWC booth will be able to experience the convenience of the Power2U firsthand by charging up one of their USB or AC powered devices.
Patented, UL Listed Design Complements Any Décor
Newer Technology introduced the Power2U at the 2012 CES show as the first patented and UL Listed device to seamlessly blend into any wall as a standard power outlet. Users can access two traditional three-prong AC wall sockets in addition to two USB 3.0/2.0/1.1 ports without encountering ‘plug barriers’ found on similar devices that can prevent multiple devices from being charged/powered simultaneously. Available in four decorator colors, the Power2U is a basic ‘DIY’ install in a 16-cubic-inch electrical box. Article Continues…
