The Joy Factory Inc., an Irvine-based manufacturer of accessories for digital devices, has been recognized at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) as an Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards honoree for its Zip Touch-n-go multi-charging station.

The Zip Touch-n-go charging station can accommodate multiple devices at once – including cell phones, tablets, cameras and Apple devices – with mini USB, micro USB and 30-pin ZipTail magnetic connectors that allow users to quickly charge their devices. The connectors snap on to dimpled spaces on the charging pad’s surface, and the short cord length prevents a messy tangle of cords. The device’s magnetic charging technology decreases energy loss and enables devices to charge faster.  

“The Joy Factory is honored that the Zip Touch-n-go is being recognized for its product design and engineering by this esteemed group. The Joy Factory designed the Zip to offer consumers the ability to easily charge an arsenal of mobile devices including smart phones, cameras, and e-readers in a way that is modern, effortless and without clutter,” said The Joy Factory’s executive vice president, Miranda Su.

The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards recognize electronics products in 32 categories. Products are judged on function, design, engineering aspects and features. The Zip Touch-n-go will be on display at the CES in Las Vegas from Jan. 10 through 13, 2012.
