LINDY Gives Devices the Charge They Deserve

Devices that are hungry on power can make charging with a USB multi-plug frustrating since many won’t supply the current required if more than one device is connected. The end result is often the most demanding devices such as an iPad don’t actually charge, even when left overnight. LINDY’s latest travel adapter solves this issue by specifying the ports that supply the higher charge.

The LINDY USB Mains Travel Charger allows users to charge up to 4 devices with a combined maximum output of 5A at one time. When four devices are connected that require more than 1A, the device connected in the first USB port will take the maximum output it needs up to 2.5A, then the next, and so on. By connecting the devices that take the most charge in descending order, the LINDY charger ensures that all devices are charged and ready for use in as short amount of time as possible.

“It can be so frustrating on holiday to put your devices on charge before you go to bed, only to find in the morning that most of them are still showing the battery symbol in the red,” says Tony Jamieson, General Manager of LINDY Australia. “Our latest charger allows users to choose which devices get the maximum power, while replacing the need to take several different chargers on holiday, making more room in the suitcase for other essentials.”

Suitable for use with most USB powered devices including tablets, MP3 players, mobile phones etc, the LINDY USB Mains Travel Charger has over current, over voltage and short circuit protection and includes adapters for use in UK, Europe, USA and Australia.

LINDY Retractable USB to Lightning Cable Untangles Apple Users

Compact design makes carrying a cable to charge, sync or transfer data easy

A handy, in-your-pocket gizmo for Apple lovers everywhere, the new LINDY Retractable USB to Lightning Cable enables users to easily connect their iPhone, iPad or iPod to a PC or Mac anywhere they go.

Ideal for syncing an iTunes account, transferring data or just delivering a quick charge, the cable’s compact design puts an end to crushed wires at the bottom of a handbag or trying to extract the right one from a crow’s nest of leads from the front pocket of a messenger bag.

“Carrying cables around is a bane in most people’s lives. During transportation they become tangled, bent and generally stressed and not surprisingly don’t last very long before something snaps,” says Tony Jamieson, General Manager of LINDY Australia. “Retractable cables don’t just eliminate the snarling mess in your work bag, they’re also really easy to slip into your pocket when you’re travelling light.”

In addition, the retractable cable’s excellent strain relief capabilities ensures that despite the ratchet mechanism that allows users to set the cable length required and release it back into the housing they can always be certain of a stress free connection.

Officially licensed by Apple as part of their MFi programme the retractable cable extends up to 1m in length and is guaranteed for 2 years.

LINDY Makes Charging Multiple iPads and Tablets a Cinch

iPads and tablets may have revolutionised the classroom, but keeping them secure, charged and synced can sometimes be a chore. LINDY’s new 10 Tablet Charging Station simplifies the task by enabling multiple devices to be maintained from one central point.

Ideal for teaching and training centres, the charging station has ten bays which can take tablets up to 18 x 240 x 200mm (WxDxH). A USB port on the rear of the cabinet allows for the devices to be synced from a host machine and if three charging stations are stacked and daisy chained together, it is possible to connect up to 30 tablets to one computer to enable updates.

“Using tablets for educational purposes is really starting to take off as teachers realise the benefits of enriching the teaching experience across a wide range of subject matters, reducing paper waste and  increasing engagement,” says Andrew Ingram, Product Manager of LINDY Electronics UK. “The downside is that the devices need to be regularly charged and kept up to date, which can be a time consuming task if it’s not managed centrally.”

The LINDY 10 Tablet Charging and Sync Station can be attached to a table for additional security, whilst the lockable, slide-in door enables for easy access when taking or replacing tablets and iPads. Charging begins automatically as soon as the tablet is connected and an integral fan ensures the cabinet does not become overheated. Competitively priced at $995.00 inc. GST, quantity discounts are available to education, corporate and trade customers. The cabinet’s overall dimensions are 310 x 350 x 340mm (WxDxH).
