Griffin builds on success of award-winning BreakSafe by expanding range to include Hi-Power USB-C Breakaway Cable and USB Breakaway Adapter

Las Vegas – January 4, 2017 – Griffin Technology, creator of award-winning and thoughtfully designed mobile accessories, today introduces four additional solutions to their patented BreakSafe series with the 100-watt BreakSafe Hi-Power Magnetic USB-C Breakaway Cable, BreakSafe USB Breakaway Adapter, BreakSafe Car Charger, and BreakSafe Wall Charger. Through a patented quick-release magnetic connector, Griffin’s BreakSafe product range provides a safe and secure device charging experience. The latest Griffin BreakSafe products are on display at 2017 International CES, Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall Booth #8915 from January 5th-8th.

Characterized by Griffin’s patented BreakSafe magnetic connector, Griffin’s latest additions to their BreakSafe line features solutions for multiple device and cable types including the latest USB-C MacBook Pro and USB Type-C compatible (and USB-powered devices). The BreakSafe Car Charger and BreakSafe Wall Charger offer streamlined connection with the safety of Griffin’s innovative BreakSafe magnetic breakaway connector, allowing users to charge their phone or tablet while on the go, or at home. Adding product versatility to the BreakSafe line, Griffin today introduces the BreakSafe Magnetic USB Breakaway Adapter, transforming any standard USB-A cable into a secure BreakSafe-protected cable.  

“Last year at CES 2016, our acclaimed BreakSafe Magnetic USB-C Power Cable stole the show with its innovation and USB-C support,” said Rick Kennedy, Category Manager for Connectivity Products at Griffin. “We’re proud to continue that legacy by extending the BreakSafe experience to more audiences beyond USB-C. Now, whether users are at their laptops or on the go, they get the safety that comes from a magnetic breakaway cable on any device.”

Keeping up with Apple’s newest MacBook Pro, the BreakSafe Hi-Power Magnetic USB-C Breakaway Cable is rated for a capacity of up to 100 watts (20 volts at 5 amps). The BreakSafe Magnetic Hi-Power USB-C Breakaway Cable is built to handle the power needs of the most demanding USB-C laptops and other devices. Through Griffin’s thoughtful design, the BreakSafe Hi-Power Cable keeps laptops safe from drops and damage with its patented quick-release magnetic connector that safely disconnects from the rest of the cable when under stress or strain, like tripping over the power cord.

Also new for CES 2017, BreakSafe Magnetic USB Breakaway Adapter delivers the safety and protection of BreakSafe to the much wider audience of users not yet using USB-C. This new BreakSafe USB Adapter brings the same patented quick-release magnetic connector to standard USB-A devices, preventing drops and damage to all the devices we use daily. Designed to handle standard USB 2.0 power and data, the BreakSafe Magnetic USB Breakaway Adapter is an ideal adapter for printers, disk drives and other USB devices.

Compatible with USB devices ranging from tablets to smartphones, the BreakSafe Car Charger and BreakSafe Wall Charger are the first universal solutions in the BreakSafe line, offering BreakSafe’s signature breakaway functionality to phones and tablets. Optimized for efficiency, the BreakSafe Universal Car Charger and BreakSafe Universal Wall Charger are each packed with 15 watts of power to deliver maximum-rate charging to quickly and safely power-up USB devices.

BreakSafe Hi-Power Magnetic USB-C Breakaway Cable, $39.99, will be available Q2 2017.

BreakSafe Magnetic USB Breakaway Adapter, $19.99, will be available Q1 2017.
