Lighten the load with Zolt, the teeny weeny laptop charger. Four times smaller and three time lighter than the regular laptop charger, Zolt is definitely a product to be noted at CES 2015 . This hexagonal miniature power charger is 3″ x 1.3″ x 1.3″ and has three USB slots that could charge even phones and tablets.
When looked at the working of the charger, Dinesh Ramanathan, CEO of the company says special semi-conductor, current switching technology and 37 patents adds-on to make Zolt an efficient one. He also states the constant intertwining of the charger in his backpack and the time wasted in untangling them every time is the reason behind this invention.
This chapstick sized charger has a variety of charging tips that can refill a laptops, a tab and a phone at the same time. Its shape and structure allows it to fit perfectly into one space on any power plug points or extension boxes.
A mobile app is available along with the charger which allows one to check the charging status of the devices connected and prioritize the port among the three. Though, with 70 watts capacity there should not be any glitch to refuel a laptop and other two devices simultaneously.
The little power transmitter is bundled in with more surprises. Apart from charging, it doubles up as night light for people who work late without wanting to bother others with brighter light. Also, the package includes 6ft cable that wraps up neatly when not in use.
The little charger is compatible with most laptops like Acer, HP, Compaq, Dell, Gateway, Samsung, Lenovo and it is on its way to juice up bigger Apple laptops that require more power. Besides, Zolt is also working on to get official approval from Apple.
The handy charger is priced $99 and expected in the market by spring. However, one could preorder it at www.gozolt.com for a discounted rate of $79. Is it going to be better than its competitor Dart? We may have to wait until its release to get answers.
