AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Echo Products, from the London based Technology Company and newest British invasion, has finally created a line of very cool, ultra-sleek, distinctive looking collectible and portable power docking stations for Apple and Android Products.

Echo introduces the PowerConnect series, small and powerful power banks that will keep you connected longer. The PowerConnect portable phone chargers are slim enough to fit next to your phone whilst charging from your pocket, purse, bag or clutch.

The PowerConnect series is made up of the large PowerConnect Dual which comes with an integrated dual headed connector for both iPhone and Android, and the PowerConnect mini which is available for both as well. Both are MFi certified and come with a one year warranty.

Echo also introduces the world's first dual charge key, a 2-in-1, Apple licensed iPhone and Android charger which should easily handle the majority of your electronic devices.

The Connect key is the first ever MFi certified dual connector, connecting micro USB and Apple lightning devices to a USB power source - all built on one small, slick key chain.

Charge your smartphone, android, iPhone, tablets, and more with one device. People own many assorted electronic devices, and Echo’s Connect key will allow you to charge most of them. Never before has a charging accessory been so relevant to the growing demand of our technological devices.

In addition the Connect key is extremely robust; don’t worry about breaking your cable. Use it and abuse it - it’ll last. With upgraded connectors and reinforcements, the Connect key is built for life.

Made from Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and reinforced with hard plastic around the connectors – it is virtually indestructible. So attach it to your keys, wear it as a necklace, slip into your purse or wallet, hide it in the bottom of your bag – no more tangled leads, broken cables and dead batteries!

The Connect key is the same size as a small door key – so you can carry it with you always. And, it’s completely secure; with the unique “Either or Switch” that will protect your data by only allowing one device to charge at a time.

Echo will officially launch the Connect key in September and it will retail for just $29 USD. Choose from white, blue, purple or black.

Echo recently launched an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign allowing backers to have their items delivered by the end of August and benefit from a range of discounts. This campaign was a huge success and in 72 hours doubled its target goal and ended smashing its goal 5 times over.

Founded in 2014, Echo are a young passionate team dedicated to creating the highest quality electronic devices that keep you connected in the modern world. Innovative ideas, met with intricate design and unique production techniques are the formula for Echo’s expertly crafted electrical goods.

Echo blurs the boundaries between Technology and Fashion, by creating exciting everyday electrical devices that are relevant for today’s lifestyles.

Echo’s focus is on products in three different areas of Technology – POWER, SOUND & CONNECTIVITY. It is within these that we have created three series’ of products which make up the Echo range.

As a World dependent upon our electrical devices, we have lost an element of control over our lives. We are slaves to batteries that cannot keep up with the increased demand of our devices and the fast paced nature of our daily activities. But here at Echo we are determined to put the power back in users’ hands. Our mission is to push boundaries and find solutions to the growing demand of mobility in our electronic devices.

Echo products are smart, attractive, and made with soft indestructible casing. Charge lights, a series of four incandescent blue dots, are easy to read and very clear. The 2-in-1 offers ample space to hold two devices.

The Connect Key, a “Y” micro USB port that connects to any charger, laptop or traditional USB port with Apple and Android power keys on either side. The “either or” option allows users to charge without the concern of a data breech.

Ease of use, versatility, attractiveness and price point make Echo Products a winner. All Echo products are designed in the UK and assembled in China.
