BodyGuardz CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree

BodyGuardz, a leader in device protection, today announced that it has been named a CES® 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree for its Portable 5-in-1 Emergency Hub. The announcement was made ahead of the first-ever, all-digital CES 2021, the world’s most influential technology event, happening Jan. 11-14, 2021.

The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.

“BodyGuardz was previously named a CES Innovation Award Honoree when we launched the market’s first tempered glass screen protector back in 2013, as well as our curved glass screen protector in 2018. We’re proud to be receiving that same recognition for a third time now as we venture into new ways of providing the best protection for a life worth living,” said Kirk Feller, CEO of BodyGuardz.

The 5-in-1 is BodyGuardz’s all-in-one smart emergency preparedness hub and weather alert system. It provides power, light, and notifications of potential events in a user’s area based on user-specified zip code in the free BodyGuardz mobile app. The product’s key features include:

  • Emergency Alerts – By connecting to local NOAA and other national weather alert services, users can receive critical warnings of localized environmental threats to the area both at home and on the road, even if power and cell towers are out.
  • Power Bank – Charges devices with a backup battery for emergency situations.
  • Panic Button – Sounds a 90-decibel siren and alerts loved ones that users are in an emergency situation.
  • Flashlight Functions as an always-charged flashlight with three high-powered light beams to illuminate your path during power outages and other emergencies.
  • Nightlight – Provides ambient lighting for the key area where the device is plugged in that automatically illuminates when power is cut off.

In September 2019, BodyGuardz announced its new smart home product line consisting of three portable smart home products, including the Portable 5-in-1 Emergency Hub. The products were developed to fill a specific gap in the smart home security market for renters and others who prefer portable, convenient peace of mind both at home and while on the go.

Mophie Powerstation XL

By Eamonn Burke

With so many public places being closed or unsafe due to COVID-19, people are lacking the ability to stop in somewhere for a quick charge. As a result, portable chargers such as the Morphie Powerstation XL are quickly rising in popularity.

The Mophie Powerstation XL is a state of the art portable charger with two universal USB ports for charging multiple devices at once. The biggest change from before: it now includes a universal plug, so that it is compatible with more devices than just Apple Products. With a 10,000mAh battery, the charger offers 48 extra hours of power, and it also charges fast, at speeds up to 2.1A. When connected to a power source, the charger will give your device priority before charging itself, and it will tell you how much current battery is left. All of these features give the ability to charge easily on the go, which all portable charges should provide. Additionally, the charger is sleek and small, with a sharp aluminum finish. Lastly, the Mophie Powerstation XL has management circuitry to protest against overheating and short-circuiting. The lithium-polymer batteries are also triple tested to ensure durability and quality.

Mophie also offers the Powerstation AC, which includes a 24,000mAh battery that can charge at up to speeds of 3A. Delivering 100W of power through its AC port, it’s capable of fully charging a MacBook. There is also a fast-charge feature that’s uses 30W for your USB-C laptop. Another USB-A port also allows quick charge at 2.4A speed. The Powerstation AC also offers priority charging and a power indicator, and is finished with a protective but comfortable fabric wrap.

As a cheaper alternative Mophie carries the Powerstation, with up to 2.1 full phone charges and a 18W output out of the USB-C port. The fast USB-C PD port charges a phone to 50% battery in just 30 minutes. The more powerful Powerstation XXL has up to 4.6 full charges, while at the same power output as the Powerstation with PD. The Powerstation XXL’s battery, however, is two times more powerful, at 20,000mAh as compared to 10,000. It can also charge 3 devices at once, whereas the Powerstation charges 2 at once.

Lastly, the Powerstation wireless stand has a 8,000mAh battery, a universal USB-C and USB-A port, and provides 18W of power from an output or wirelessly. It can provide up to 1.7 full charges, and can charge up to three devices at once. It can also switch easily between portrait and landscape display.

The Powerstation XXL was rated third most efficient among other battery packs by PCWorld. These Mophie products compare well to other top-of-the-like portable chargers on the market right now. These include:

Anker Powercore 20,100

20,000mAh battery, 2 USB-A ports.
