VARTA Consumer Batteries presents three smart accessories for quick and easy charging. The new Wall Charger and the new Car Charger Dual USB Fast provide power for several different devices – simultaneously, speedily and reliably. VARTA’s 2in1 Charge & Sync cable for Micro USB & Type C supports powerful data synchronisation during the charging process. All three new energy sources are available in stores now.
Each household in Europe has on average ten mobile devices, e.g. smartphones, tablets or eReaders*. This number will surely rise in coming years because smartwear is becoming increasingly popular. Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices are often charged simultaneously, sometimes several times per day, and with up to three different chargers per household**. This often causes a tangled jumble of cables and plugs, so VARTA has developed new charging solutions to help users clear away the cable chaos and achieve maximum charging performance.

The smart Wall Charger conveniently and simultaneously charges up to three devices at a single socket. Each mobile device receives suitable power supply thanks to the Wall Charger’s three USB outputs: two of these outputs are USB A ports with a shared output current of 2.4 A; the third output is a USB Type C port with 3 A output current. The Wall Charger is especially well prepared for the future because it integrates USB Type C, which has already become widely established as the new standard thanks to its impressively high transfer speed. The Wall Charger has a convenient and compact size so it can fit easily into any pocket. Furthermore, it covers all global voltage standards, so it’s the ideal travel companion for mobile devices, which it charges at the same fast speed worldwide. The Wall Charger is available in stores for € 16.99 (RRP).
Charges faster than the highway’s speed limit
Does this nerve-wracking scenario sound familiar? You’re under time pressure in the early morning because your smartphone and tablet aren’t yet fully charged and you should have started on your commute to work minutes ago? Now both mobile devices can get a huge, speedy and simultaneous energy boost thanks to VARTA’s new Car Charger Dual USB Fast. When the Car Charger Dual USB Fast is plugged into the cigarette lighter in a car (12 V) or truck (24 V), it can charge mobile devices via two USB outputs. In addition to a USB A port with 2.4 A output current, the Car Charger Dual USB Fast is also equipped with a USB Type C PD port with 3 A output current. The acronym “PD” stands for the intelligent “Power Delivery” function, which charges devices at extraordinary speed and efficiency. Constant communication between the charger and the connected PD-capable device enables the charger to individually determine the maximum permissible power for each charging process and thus to charge the mobile device as quickly as possible. The Car Charger Dual USB Fast supports all currently available cables. A blue LED indicator shows that the Car Charger is supplied with power. The Car Charger Dual USB Fast is available in stores for € 12.99 (RRP).
