RCA Unveils Charging Solutions for Portable Devices

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

International CES, Center Hall, Booth 10406-10418 -- Audiovox Corporation (Nasdaq: VOXX) - With the popularity of Smartphones and Tablets, and unit sales increasing with all portable devices like digital cameras, iPods and MP3 players, consumers are becoming more and more dependent upon keeping their devices fully charged. Today, RCA announced five new models of USB charging products, including a clock radio that offers USB charging.

"Our new line of charging stations offer consumers the power and charging capabilities they demand along with the convenience they desire. We have created a line of products which put the USB and AC outlets where the consumers need them most, from the family room to the kitchen to the bedroom nightstand," said David Benedetti, Manager of Industrial Design.

Stylish RCA Charging Docks

With a beautiful high-gloss black finish to complement the most sophisticated Smartphones, the slim design of the RCA USB Charging Dock is perfect for the office, family room or bedroom. This dock cradles the mobile phone while charging. There are two USB ports that provide fast, full-speed charging for two Smartphones or one Tablet. One of the two USB outlets on the charging dock provides 2.1 amp, which is necessary for charging the iPad.

On the backside of the charging base is a convenient AC outlet. The PCHSTAB2 is for Droid, BlackBerry or any other USB mobile phones. The suggested retail price is $24.99.

RCA PCHSTAB1 offers a 30-pin cradle for charging the iPhone, iPad and iPod models. The suggested retail price is $29.99. Both models will be available in May 2011.

Perfect for Charging at Home or while Traveling

Utilizing the same USB charging capability, the new RCA PCHCLIPR converts any standard power outlet into two, charging USB outlets. Both USB outlets have two full amps of charging power and are integrated into a small clip that plugs into a standard power outlet.

One of the USB outlets has been optimized and provides 2.1 amps for the iPad tablet.

The PCHCLIPR design incorporates many of today's home decor including clean lines and popular white color. The unique ID holds the portable device being charged off of dirty counters, table tops, and floors where spills can damage the device. The PCHCLIPR is available in March 2011 with a suggested retail of $19.99.

RCA introduced model RC107, which is a clock radio with built-in USB charging capability. It is perfect for charging Smartphones in the bedroom. This charging clock radio is available in April 2011 with a suggested retail price of $14.99.
