Saying it sees the Philippines as a huge market because to its tech-savvy population, Canada-based technology company JuiceBoxx has chosen the country for the global launch pad of its portable power bank.
JuiceBoxx chief operating officer Carol Lee said it was an easy choice for the tech firm to launch in the Philippines first because of the fast-growing local economy. ?It has among the highest cell phone penetration rates and SMS usage in the world,? Lee said.
Noting the opportunity being presented by the proliferation of mobile devices, JuiceBoxx said its portable power bank promises up to three times as much charging power as a traditional unit.
With 4,000 mAh of power, consumers can provide their devices with 200 additional hours of usage, the company said.
Juiceboxx is compatible with most devices including the iPhone and other cellphone brands. Other devices such tablets, iPods, digital cameras, and portable DVD players can also be powered by Juiceboxx.
The powerbank comes in different colors and is contained in a small little box, which users can carry in their pockets. Additional plugs are already included with the product.
JuiceBoxx comes in two variants: the regular unit and a solar unit. With the solar version, users don?t need to plug to a power source for recharging.
The powerbank is sold in S&R and Puregold outlets for an introductory price of P999 for the regular unit, and P1999 for the solar unit — half the price of a comparable strength unit from a specialty store.
