Vorbeck Materials Debuts Flexible Battery Straps

Business travelers, students, and outdoor enthusiasts now have a comfortable and convenient option to power devices when they are on the go, with the newly released Vor-Power™ flexible battery strap by Vorbeck Materials. “Vor-Power straps offer a light-weight, comfortable, power source that can be attached to any existing bag strap and provide about 50 hours of additional talk or surf time,” stated Joseph Roy-Mayhew, Manager of the Vor-Power product line. Capable of charging smartphones up to 5 times, the rechargeable Vor-Power padded shoulder strap comes with two USB outputs and a micro USB cable output as well as pockets for your phone and credit cards.

According to venture investor and frequent traveler Ben DuPont, “Every time I travel, I find myself searching airports for outlets to charge my phone and tablet. The Vor-Power strap is incredibly convenient, providing the extra power that I need right on the bag that I am carrying while keeping my phone accessible.” The Vor-Power strap is water-resistant and can survive drops of over 80 feet making it one of the most rugged power packs on the market.

Recently featured on several morning news programs as a great tech gift for Dads and Grads, the Vor-Power strap is available on the company’s online store, and will be carried in university-stores and other select retail locations this Fall. Vor-Power is available in black, with ballistic grade fabric and breathable AirMesh padding. Custom versions with company logos or messages are also available. Vorbeck assembles Vor-Power products at their Howard County, Maryland facility.

“The Vorbeck team challenged the notion that all batteries need to be ‘bricks’, and the result is a convenient and robust power source,” offered Vorbeck’s President John Lettow. “The Vor-Power strap links our company’s work in ultra-flexible, wearable electronics, with our experience in advanced battery technology.”

The Vor-Power strap is the first of a new line of flexible portable power solutions to be released by Vorbeck Materials. These offerings build upon the company’s diverse portfolio, which includes Vor-ink™ graphene-based conductive inks that debuted in 2009, and Vor-flex™ graphene-reinforced rubber products that launched January 2014.
