With the ability to nearly double the battery capacity of an iPhone, the Energi 2K is perfect for those who live on the go. Simply plug the 2K into your wall and it functions as a normal USB wall charger. When you need power on the go, just unplug the 2K from the wall, fold down the collapsible plug and take it with you.
TYLT first unveiled its Energi 2K Travel Charger at the 2014 CES, where it was named a Best of Show Finalist by iLounge and was one of Travel + Leisure’s Best New Travel Gadgets for 2014. Utilizing TYLT’s patented technology, the brightly colored Energi 2K combines several features that make it the most convenient travel charger for the everyday user, including:
- Foldable AC wall prongs
- Internal, rechargeable 2,200mAh battery
- Universal USB port
- 1 amp circuit for rapid charging
- LED battery status indicator
“We’ve reviewed all of TYLT’s chargers, and this might be our favorite,” wrote Android Community about the Energi 2K. Several additional technology blogs have praised the Energi 2K Travel Charger, with Tuaw awarding the charger 3.5 out of 4 stars and Technology Tell calling the Energi 2K “brilliant.”
During a month-long Kickstarter campaign, which ended on June 18, the highly anticipated travel charger was pre-ordered by 1,500+ backers to exceed its $50,000 funding goal. This marks TYLT’s third successful Kickstarter project after the Energi+ Backpack and VU Wireless Charger campaigns in 2013.
The Energi 2K Travel Charger is now available for purchase via TYLT’s website in black, blue, red or neon green for $39.99.
TYLT offers several additional portable batteries and charging accessories that are ideal for travel, especially in light of the TSA’s new security rules banning powerless devices from planes. TYLT’s Energi Portable Battery Packs, which range from 2,000mAh to 10,400mAh, and TSA-approved Energi+ Backpack, which includes a 10,400mAh battery, are perfect accessories for international travel.
In addition, TYLT’s Energi Sliding Power Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 is now available for purchase for $79.99. The sleek case’s removable 2,800mAh battery sleeve doubles the capacity of the Galaxy S5. TYLT’s current product offerings are all available for purchase online at www.TYLT.com.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago.

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
