The lineup includes the PowerCompact, VitaCharge and a Wall Plate Charger, all designed with both style and functionality in mind.

“Smartphones and tablets have become an integral part of everyday life, whether it is to increase productivity or communicate easily,” said Ian Geise, Senior Vice President of Acoustic Research. “From work to play, nothing is worse than having a dead battery, and our new chargers make it easy to power up your device while at home or on-the-go.”

Combine a compact mirror with portable power and you’ve got the Acoustic Research PowerCompact. The PowerCompact makes it easy to charge your mobile device in style and comes equipped with a mirror and storage space for a USB charge/sync cable or other small accessories. The backup battery will provide a full phone charge when needed, or bursts of charges throughout the day, and can be recharged for daily smartphone and tablet use. The PowerCompact has a glossy metallic finish for a premium look and comes in gold and black for $29.99.

The new VitaCharge is a lightweight, compact and stylish backup battery that fits in any pocket, briefcase or purse. Providing more than five hours of extra battery life, the VitaCharge has a high-performance rechargeable Lithium ion battery and delivers high efficiency output for fast charging. The VitaCharge is compatible with all smartphones or tablets, and will be available in a variety of colors that match any style for $24.99.

Without giving up a standard outlet, add USB charging to any room in your home or office with Acoustic Research’s new USB Wall Plate Charger. It is simple to use, just plug and charge, no professional installation is required. Optimized for the latest and greatest high-end smartphones and tablets with 2.4 amps per charging port, it provides fast charging speeds even when two smartphones or two tablets are simultaneously plugged in. The new USB Wall Plate Charge will be available in Spring 2015 for $29.99.
