Thinium Charge – the Award-Winning Ultra-Slim, Portable Wall Charger for Mobile Devices – is Now Available for Pre-Order on Prelaunch.com

At CE Week 2014, Thinium Technologies, creators of innovative, stylish, and versatile products for on-the-go charging, today announced that its award-winning, ultra-slim, portable charger for mobile devices, the Thinium Charge, is now available for pre-order on Prelaunch.com. In addition, the Micro-USB version of the company’s newly announced Thinium Connex, a tangle-free, retractable USB cable that will charge and sync mobile devices from a computer or any USB source, is also available for pre-order on Prelaunch.com.

“At Thinium, our goal is to create a new class of versatile, ultra-thin, portable charging products that consumers can keep with them all the time,” said Peter Greenberg, CEO of Thinium. “Now, with the opportunity to pre-order the Charge and Connex through Prelaunch.com, you’ll never be caught without a charging solution again.”

The Thinium Charge, recognized by Popular Mechanics with a 2014 CES Editors’ Choice Award, allows for smartphone charging directly from a standard wall outlet, without the need for a cable. For total versatility, it also has an integrated USB cable, hidden within the card’s clean edges, that allows users to charge and sync from a computer or any USB charging source. When not in use, the clever design hides and protects the connector, USB cable, and foldable wall blades, transforming into a compact, self-encased unit that is about the size of a credit card and fits easily into a wallet, pocket or purse.

The Thinium Connex, an ultra-slim, retractable USB cable solution for mobile devices, offers the utmost in portability, durability and versatility. Connex’s self-winding retractable cable allows for quick, tangle-free storage after charging and syncing your smartphone, tablet or GPS device, and the compact, minimalist design is perfect for in-the-home or on-the-go use. With a USB to micro-USB cable, users can charge and sync all their micro-USB devices and easily control the cable length – from 2” to over 2’ -- for a perfect fit in your car, on a desk, at the nightstand and more.

Available now for pre-order on PreLaunch.com is both the Apple Lightening and micro-USB versions of the Thinium Charge. Both products sell for MSRP $49.99 and can be ordered in black, white and gold finishes. The Thinium Connex is available for pre-order in the micro-USB connector version for Android and Windows phones for MSRP $19.99.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
