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.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
