Altec Lansing launches ruggedised mobile accessories at CES

Altec Lansing has announced new collections of "everything-proof" chargers, power banks, cables and cases for smartphones and tablets which are designed to withstand wear and tear as well as less-than-hospitable conditions. Scheduled for roughly Q216 release, the new accessories will provide ruggedised features such as IP67-rated, military-grade construction to ensure reliable waterproof, dustproof and shock-resistant operation and device protection.

The new products will include:

Altec Lansing Everything Proof 3,000, 6,000 and 10,000 mAh Power Packs for smartphones, tablets and MP3 players, providing up to 100 hours of talk time, 75 hours of music, 50 hours of video and 4.5 full charges depending on the model. All three will be IP67-rated for waterproof protection even in three feet of water for up to 30 minutes; sealed from dirt, dust and sand; designed to float to prevent loss if they accidentally go overboard; and come pre-charged and ready to use out of the box. Each will incorporate a carabiner for on-the-go attachment to belts, backpacks and other equipment. (Manufacturers' suggested retail pricing [MSRP] US$29.99, US$39.99 and US$69.99)

Altec Lansing 3.4 Amp Dual USB Rapid Car Charger, a quick-charge unit that will charge two devices simultaneously. Protective silicon seals over both USB ports defend the charger against moisture, dirt and other materials. Supports iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets. (MSRP US$19.99) 

Altec Lansing 3.4 Amp Dual USB Rapid Wall Charger, offering the same rugged construction, two-device charging ability and durability as the car charger. (MSRP US$19.99)

Altec Lansing Shock-Proof Lightning Cable, a 3' braided, tangle-proof cable with extra layers of protection including a spring coil that provides strain relief to prevent fraying and breakage at the tip. Other protections include dustproof construction and silicon tips for additional breakage resistance. Compatible with iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus, iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPod Touch 5th Generation, iPad 4th Generation and iPad Air. (MSRP US$19.99)

Altec Lansing Shock-Proof Micro Cable, featuring the same 3' braided, extra-durable construction as the Lightning cable. Compatible with Android, BlackBerry and Samsung smartphones and micro USB devices. (MSRP US$14.99)

Altec Lansing Everything Proof Smartphone Cases built to provide maximum protection for iPhone 6/6S and Galaxy S5/S6 smartphones. Features range from 5' drop protection, 360-degree impact protection and dirt-proofing to IP67-rated waterproofing, depending on the model. (MSRP US$29.99 and up)
