A real winner: VARTA Powerpack V-Man Zero wins a Plus XAward

The handy V-Man Zero from VARTA Consumer is “Product of the Year”
according to the 2012 Plus X Awards. The competition’s judges also gave the mobile recharging device a seal of approval for its ease of use. These prizes see the V-Man Zero take its place in the long line of outstanding, award-winning products we have introduced in recent years: Innovations from VARTA Consumer have now made it onto the judges’ list of winner seven times.

V-Man Zero: awarded mobile power

The VARTA V-Man Zero’s is so easy to use and is just as easy to transport. These qualities have made it a star at the Plus X Awards, the world’s most important competition for innovative products in the fields of technology, sport and lifestyle. The portable powerpack was named best recharging appliance of the year by the jury, which was made up of journalists from international trade publications amongst others. It has also won further praise in the form of the coveted 2012 “Best Product of the Year” seal of approval. In the small electronic appliances category, it also won an award for ease of use because of its intuitive, user-friendly operating system.

Fully charged – wherever you are, whenever you need it

The portable recharger is perfect for people who are often on the go and who don’t have the opportunity to recharge their mobile appliances’ batteries like Smartphone, MP3 player or GPS device. Everybody runs into the same old problem, again and again: your battery’s dead and there’s no electric socket to be seen for miles. The solution to this dilemma: the V-Man Zero from VARTA, which supplies you with energy whenever and wherever you need it when you’re on the move. Featuring three adaptors for micro USB, mini USB and selected Apple® products, the V-Man Zero is designed for maximum flexibility. The V-Man Zero comes with its own USB cable for recharging, so it can be attached to any USB port when you need it (PC, laptop, etc.). Just press the button above the blue LED display to see the V-Man Zero’s recharge level.
