Battery-Biz Inc. Selected as CES Innovations 2007 Honoree for DURACELL® PowerFM™
NEWBURY PARK, CA – November 9, 2006 – Battery-Biz
Inc., the leading manufacturer of third party rechargeable power products,
announced today that the DURACELL PowerFM was selected as a CES
Innovations 2007 Honoree for the Audio Accessories category. Battery-Biz
received the award this week at the CES Unveiled @ NY event in New York City.
This is the first official press event surrounding the 40th anniversary of the
Consumer Electronics Show.
"Being named a CES Innovations Honoree is very exciting," said
Jessie Revlin, Director of Marketing & Conventional Sales for Battery-Biz.
"We are confident that the innovative, sleek product design combined with the
strength of the DURACELL brand and consumer-friendly price will make the PowerFM
successful in the iPod market."
The DURACELL PowerFM is the only iPod accessory that
combines the functionality of an FM radio transmitter with the convenience of
an extended rechargeable battery as well as the protection of a silicone case.
The lightweight unit eliminates the need to plug in for sound or power and is
designed to give iPod users a truly wireless experience. The PowerFM
unit provides more than double the iPod’s run-time and allows users to transmit
their music to any FM radio.
The PowerFM provides exceptional value at a suggested
retail price of $79.99. In order to duplicate the functionality of the PowerFM
consumers would have to spend over $120 to individually purchase an FM
transmitter, an extended battery and a silicone case. The 1st Generation Nano
and Video versions will be available in December at major U.S retail
distributors and online stores, as well as at www.battery-biz.com
and www.duracelldirect.com. The 2nd
Generation Nano will be available in January 2007.
Since 1989, the prestigious CES Innovations Design and Engineering
Awards have given consumer technology manufacturers and developers an
opportunity to have their newest products judged by a panel of independent
industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade press. For
the 12th year, the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) endorsed and
acted as advisors to the Innovations Design & Engineering Awards. A
preeminent panel of judges evaluated products based on user value, unique and
novel features, contributions to the quality of life and aesthetic and design
