A Smartphone First: BuQu Tech Unveils Magnetyze™ Magnetic Charging System for Samsung Galaxy S® III - Platform Lets Android, iPhone Users Share a Charger
CAMARILLO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Fans of the popular Android platform and the top-selling Samsung Galaxy S®
III smartphone can share a charge with Apple iPhone (News - Alert) enthusiasts
beginning at the end of January with BuQu Tech's launch of the first in
a family of Magnetyze™ magnetic charging accessories for Android (News - Alert).
BuQu Tech will display the new charging system at the company's MGM
Grand suite throughout 2013 International CES in Las Vegas and at the
ShowStoppers press event, January 8, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Wynn
Hotel/Lafite Ballroom (table A47).
Magnetyze by BuQu Tech applies patent-pending magnetics technology to
keep smartphones charged, synchronized and ready to "grab and go." Using
the Magnetyze charging system, consumers can do away with the constant
need to attach and detach cumbersome cables every time the phone needs
to be charged. When the Magnetyze by BuQu Tech magnetic charging system
for the Samsung (News - Alert) Galaxy S® III is available in late January,
Magnetyze will become the first charging platform to enable Android and
iPhone users to share a charger. And when it's time to upgrade to a new
smartphone, only the Magnetyze protective cover or back plate needs to
be replaced. The desk stand, magnetic charging cable and other
Magnetyze-branded accessories will continue to work with any available
Magnetyze smartphone case - Android or iPhone.
"Magnetyze is the ideal solution for families who use both the Android
and iPhone platform, because every phone equipped with a Magnetyze
sleeve is instantly compatible with every Magnetyze accessory,
regardless of which platform they use," said Ophir Marish, CEO, BuQu
Tech, which introduced the Magnetyze family to Apple (News - Alert) iPhone 4/4S users
in Q4 of 2012. "Now, both iPhone and Android users can upgrade their
smartphones without the hassle and expense associated with purchasing
new charging devices or other accessories."
The system announced today will be available at the end of the month for
purchase as a bundle, at www.buqutech.com/Magnetyze.
Samsung Galaxy S III users may choose from two formats:
The Magnetyze by BuQu Tech Magnetic Charging System With
Replacement Back Plate, available for $59.99. Designed for
Samsung Galaxy S® III users who prefer a charge-only
option, this configuration replaces the phone's original rear cover
with a back plate that offers seamless attachment to any Magnetyze
charging stand. The back plate comes in two popular colors - gloss
white or metallic blue - and includes a Magnetyze Desk Stand and
Magnetic Charging Cable.
The Magnetyze by BuQu Tech Magnetic Charging System With Protective
Case, available for $69.99. This option offers Samsung Galaxy S®
III users the ability to both charge and sync their data and protects
their phone against daily hazards with a sleek, ultra-slim and light
protective cover that fits over the existing Samsung phone. The
protective case is available in gloss white or gloss black and comes
with a Magnetyze Desk Stand and Magnetic Charge/Sync Cable for easy
charging and data sync.
Both bundles include a magnetic cable and the Magnetyze desk charging
stand with 360-degree viewing rotation, which allows users to select
either vertical or horizontal screen alignment to enable hands-free
enjoyment of media, web surfing and more while the phone is charging.
Just hold the phone close to any Magnetyze charging stand and it
automatically attaches with a click and begins charging, thanks to the
magic of magnetics. With the Magnetyze charging system, there are no
cords or cradles to connect or disconnect. Users simply "grab and go."

the leading U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of consumer
electronic power accessories, has announced plans to expand the
Magnetyze by BuQu Tech family of magnetic charging products to include
additional Android and iPhone accessories, including the iPhone 5, in Q2.
