Las Vegas – January 5, 2017 – Griffin Technology, creator of award-winning and thoughtfully designed mobile accessories, today debuts a new series of Reserve mobile power solutions as well as a new range of rugged Survivor power accessories and Bluetooth speakers. The wide-ranging collection of mobile add-ons can be seen on display at the 2017 International CES, Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall Booth #8915 from January 5th-8th.

Leading the new Reserve lineup is the Reserve Battery Case with Headphone Jackwhich puts the freedom to charge and listen anywhere, with any headphones, in the palm of your hand. The Reserve case combines a protective 3,000mAh battery case with a 3.5mm headphone jack so users can use any headphones with an iPhone 7 and charge at the same time. The built-in headphone jack is powered by a digital-to-analog circuit so you can listen with any wired headphones, or use an AUX cable to connect to your stereo without needing a dongle. For even more convenience, Reserve Battery Case charges via Apple Lightning Connector so there’s no need to carry an extra micro-USB charging cable. Reserve Battery Case for iPhone 7 will be available in Black, Navy, Gray, and Pink.

Griffin’s new Reserve Mini Power Banks extend on-the-go power to a wide range of tablets and smartphones in a sleek, ultra-portable battery pack. The 3,000mAh power bank combines a rechargeable battery that delivers a full charge to an iPhone 7 or Galaxy S7 with a built-in charge cable (available with Apple Lightning Connector or standard micro-USB). Reserve Mini Power Banks can be purchased individually or as a bundle in the Reserve Mini Power Banks + Charge Station. The Charge Station bundle includes one weighted base charging station that can charge the two included Reserve Mini Power Banks at the same time. And to make sure there’s charging for your devices even when the Mini Power Banks are charging, the base includes two 1-amp USB ports as well.

Building on the success of Griffin’s best-selling Survivor Power Bank in 2016, the Survivor range of rugged power is extending to include the only wall and car chargers rugged enough to be called Survivor. The Survivor Rugged Car Chargerand Survivor Rugged Wall Charger both feature dual charge ports and are sealed against moisture and debris by an armored, non-slip rubber jacket that’s built to withstand drops, heat, vibration, and years of hard use. Both car and wall charger also feature Griffin’s exclusive ChargeSensor technology that detects the connected device’s power needs and delivers a fast, safe charge optimized to the device.

Griffin’s Survivor Rugged Wall Charger + Emergency Light adds an auto-on emergency light that turns on whenever the power goes out. Internal LEDs give you 5-7 minutes of safe light to see by so you can find the fuse box or make your way to safety. Use it to find your phone, or safely navigate dark hallways or rooms. It’s also a great travel companion, providing much needed emergency lighting if you experience a power outage in an unfamiliar place like a hotel room.

For users who seek smart, rugged power where and when they need it, the new Survivor Smart Power Bank delivers dependable, go-anywhere charging for phones or tablets. The aluminum framed, rubber-armored exterior protects the 6,600mAh capacity battery from drops of up to 6.6 feet. Plus it’s sealed and rated IPX7 against rain and immersion. Twin USB ports deliver up to 12 watts of charging for phones, tablets and most other devices that charge via USB.

But there’s more to this power bank than rugged protection and charging. Open the included Survivor Smart Power Bank Battery Monitor App for complete wireless control of your Smart Power Bank, including battery life status and controls for the included USB-powered spotlight. The Bluetooth-enabled power bank can route power to one or both USB ports, dim and brighten the spotlight up to 300 lumens and even sound an audible alert if you can’t find it. An optional solar panel accessory is also available for Survivor Smart Power Bank making it the ultimate off-grid mobile accessory.

Griffin charts new territory as they enter the waterproof bluetooth speaker market, combining Survivor’s legendary durability and Braven’s best-in-class audio engineering, with the Survivor SRV-1 and Survivor SRV-2. Compact, powerful, and built to travel, the SRV-1 Rugged Bluetooth Speaker delivers Braven’s critically acclaimed portable sound in a rugged drop-proof, waterproof case that packs amazing sound into a small package. It’s everything you’d expect from Survivor.

SRV-1’s built-in 2,200mAh rechargeable battery delivers 12 hours of playtime, and can be used to recharge your smartphone, while a built-in handsfree microphone lets you make and take phone calls. And because every good adventure has a soundtrack, the included Action Mount accessory is compatible with GoPro mounting systems.

SRV-2 Rugged Bluetooth Speaker with audio engineered by Braven is also a drop-proof, IPX7 rated waterproof case that’s rugged enough to power your life’s soundtrack wherever you’re headed. Innovative dual mode sound lets you choose between indoor and outdoor audio profiles for the best sound you can get.
