Irvine-based consumer electronics company The Joy Factory last week revealed its new Zip Touch-n-go Multi-Charging Station. The Zip’s charging-pad design is composed of multiple magnetic Mini USB and Micro USB “ZipTail” charging receivers that are compatible with today’s smart devices, such as Droids, iPads, iPhones, Blackberrys and more.

The ZipTail connectors are designed to use only one power socket and eliminate cord tangle to make it the perfect “power décor,” said Sampson Yang, president of The Joy Factory.

“The Zip offers consumers the ability to easily charge an arsenal of mobile devices – including smartphones, cameras and e-readers – in a way that is modern, effortless and without clutter,” said Yang.

The ZipTails are equipped with 16 dimpled spots on its main charging pad. It allows consumers to use their mobile devices without having to worry about disconnecting or reconnecting due to cable-length constraints. By using a magnetic-conductive-charging design and connecting the ZipTails directly to the device, the Zip reduces energy loss and provides a quick charge. The product’s 2100mA power adapter lets the product charge three cell phones or more, depending on the devices’ power transformers.

Shipments of the $79.95 Zip Touch-n-go are scheduled to begin through online outlets and brick-and-mortar retailers within a week.

The Zip comes with a starter kit with one Mini USB and two Micro USB ZipTail receivers. Additional receivers are sold separately. It can be pre-ordered online.
