The modern living space has become overrun with various electronic devices requiring electricity to run or charge. Nearly 75% of Americans alone own smartphones alone – this total doesn’t account for tablets, laptops or portable mp3 players. All of these devices require a USB cable that either plugs into a computer or plugs into an outlet adapter. A direct USB connection is usually preferred due to space concerns, but outlets that are retrofitted to accommodate the mobile world are few and far between. That is, until a recent patent was filed by a Canadian green energy company that would make our increasingly mobile lives a lot easier.
Lomiko Technologies Inc., a 100-percent-owned subsidiary of Lomiko Metals Inc. (LMR:CA) , has filed two key patents for its USB charging device, the Spider Charger™. The product will be introduced on Kickstarter™ as Lomiko Technologies finalizes an e-commerce site for the commercial launch.
The Spider Charger™ allows up to eight USB devices to be charged from a single outlet. Cafes, schools, offices, as well as home and condo owners will all be able to easily install the Spider Charger™ for individuals to charge their phones, tablets and computers in a convenient, safe manner. We've been waiting for the patent and trademark filings to be completed before we introduce this device to the marketplace," said A. Paul Gill, CEO of Lomiko Metals.
The Spider Charger™ unit combines a standard electrical wall outlet with six high powered USB chargers. The two plugs and six USB ports are able to simultaneously charge multiple USB powered devices.
Leveraging Crowdfunding to Bring Valuable Tech Solutions
Lomiko Metals Inc. is a Canadian-based exploration-stage company focused on the exploration and development of minerals for the new green economy. Its subsidiary is an investor in graphene technology and manufacturer of electronic products. This past August, Lomiko Technologies announced that the company registered on Kickstarter™to raise completion funds for safety testing of newly designed electronic devices.
Not only does Lomiko’s innovative Spider Charger™provide an energy-efficient solution for the home, the product allows users to maximize usage in high volume locations such as hotels, airports, coffee and coffee shops. Thanks to the innovation of companies like Lomiko Technologies, cluttered or unavailable outlets are quickly becoming a thing of the past.
