Velvetwire, a leader in smart energy technology, today announced the winter availability of Powerslayer Blu, its Bluetooth-enabled USB charger. The Powerslayer is a cleverly designed intelligent smartphone charger that integrates a first-of-its-kind device-aware software for a more energy efficient charging process as well as a surge protector for keeping both consumers and gadgets safe. Now with added Bluetooth low energy (BLE) connectivity, Powerslayer Blu is compatible with the smart home ecosystem, allowing for customization and enhanced control of the charging process in addition to reducing energy waste.
“Our vision for Velvetwire arose during a two-year sailing trip around the world, where we realized the vital importance of conserving energy. Powerslayer is our first endeavor at tackling energy waste and creating a smarter energy future for the modern consumer,” said Jennifer Lee, co-founder and COO of Velvetwire. Powerslayer Blu is a unique, eco-conscious way to charge devices. By turning off automatically when charging is complete, the device prevents overcharging and protects the battery life of USB devices. It also eliminates vampire power – the energy constantly consumed by electronics even in standby mode – while looking stylish.
“We are proud to be among the first group of companies to produce Bluetooth-enabled intelligent devices for the connected home,” said Eric Bodnar, co-founder and CEO at Velvetwire. “By integrating Bluetooth technology into the Powerslayer, we’re offering customers a new way to interact with their devices. Velvetwire is committed to developing intelligent, energy-efficient devices that allow users to live more consciously without sacrificing convenience. We look forward to sharing Powerslayer Blu and future generations of our power-saving devices with the world.”
Powerslayer Blu’s customization features include the ability to select between high power boost-mode charging and eco-mode to maximize battery life as well as the ability to receive a variety of device notifications. The charger interacts wirelessly with smart mobile devices through a Bluetooth-powered iOS application developed by Velvetwire and can interact with other Bluetooth-enabled applications. The app allows users to visually see and monitor relevant information about the level of charge their device is receiving. By tailoring charging power levels to suit their situation, users are provided a whole new level of interaction with the charging process.
