A company started by two Santa Barbara City College students, FuelBox, will present its new product at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, in Las Vegas from Jan. 5 to 8.
CES has been a national showcase of consumer technology innovation for 50 years.
“FuelBox is meeting with retail partners at CES and is looked for distributors and other marketing/sales partners this year,” said company Chief Marketing Officer Dan Friedman
“FuelBox is the perfect way to start off the New Year,” Friedman said. The wall-mounted device will keep cell phones and tablets from running out of power when it is needed most, he said.
The FuelBox “Ultimate Charging Solution” is a combination of a docking station and mobile battery pack providing more than 25 extra hours of power for cell phones, tablets and other devices at home and on the go.
“This powerful duo is universally compatible and creates a convenience factor unlike any other charging product available today,” Friedman said, “Get yours now and simplify your life.”
Co-founders Robert Herr and Friedman came up with the idea for the device after a friend continuously lost his phone charger.
“We were fortunate to have received over $200,000 in orders before our products even landed,” said Herr, who now works as FuelBox chief creative officer. “Now that products are here, we are only fighting to keep up with demand.”
Herr said, “The challenging delays in getting our first product to market have been a blessing in disguise. We have gained a unique perspective to our industry that has given us a major advantage going into 2017 and we’re able to bring together a team of outstanding professionals to execute our plans”
