mPower Technologies Debuts mPower Emergency Illuminator


mPower Technologies, a consumer products division of mPhase Technologies (News - Alert), has announced that its newly unveiled mPower Emergency Illuminator features an innovative battery technology termed as ‘Power On Command’ that offers power when and where users need it.

 
The battery technology will power the Emergency Illuminator to have a shelf life of twenty years and provides bright light and USB power for all situations.
 
The Illuminator’s sleek twin-chamber design – available in a variety of brushed aluminum finishes – was done by Porsche Design Studio in Austria and the Power On Command technology was originally intended to be used for military purposes. The Power On Command reserve battery can sit unused on a shelf or in a vehicle’s glove box for years and still be ready to go with full power when called upon in an emergency situation.
 
Cell phone or other portable electronic device can be charged via the illuminator’s built-in USB port. Therefore, users need worry about emergency backup power when they have to make an urgent call and their phone’s battery runs out. The company said that the Emergency Illuminator is ideal for anyone who values sophisticated engineering and pioneering technology.
 
Fred Allen, chief technology officer for the mPower Emergency Illuminator, said his company is thrilled to be the first to bring the power of this remarkable battery technology to the consumer and are confident that the Illuminator’s sleek functionality will make it one of the ‘must-have’ products of 2010.
 
The mPower Emergency Illuminator provides optimum lighting for emergency and non-emergency uses through a state of the art high intensity 180 lumens LED light source, and a custom-designed lens and reflector assembly. The device is equipped with two CR123 3-volt primary lithium batteries and they can be replaced by the consumer for many years of service and continued use --without engaging the reserve power. And also the mPower On Command Reserve Battery is placed in a specially built barrier and triggering mechanism so that it does not interact with the electrodes until manually activated.
 
mPower added that the mPower Emergency Illuminator was demoed at the at the 2010 International CES (News - Alert) and was named an International CES Innovations Award Honoree in the personal electronics category.
