CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BuQu Tech, a subsidiary of Battery-Biz® Inc., the leading U.S.-based manufacturer and distributor of consumer electronic power accessories, today announced it will extend its Magnetyze™ (www.magnetyze.com) line of magnetic-enabled smartphone cases and charging accessories to include the newly introduced Samsung Galaxy S® 4 smartphone.
“As smartphones play an ever-larger role in the everyday lives of millions, Samsung’s latest advances the state of the art”
Designed to reflect the sleek look of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the easy-to-install, two-part Magnetyze Protective Charging Case for the Samsung Galaxy S4 provides protection against nicks, bumps and everyday wear and tear. Like other Magnetyze by BuQu Tech protective cases, users simply attach the phone case to the charging desk stand, car charger or wall charger. The magnetic connection holds the phone in place, eliminating the need for clumsy cables, and its 360-degree rotation enables users to continue to charge their phone while it rotates to horizontal or vertical alignment.
The company said it also will offer the Magnetyze Extended Battery Case for the Samsung Galaxy S4, an upgrade that will provide protection while virtually doubling the phone’s battery life. In addition to offering the same features as other Magnetyze cases, the Magnetyze Extended Battery Case will feature an automatic charging function that eliminates the need for an on/off switch.
“As smartphones play an ever-larger role in the everyday lives of millions, Samsung’s latest advances the state of the art,” said Ophir Marsh, CEO of BuQu Tech, which introduced iPhone 4/4S and Samsung Galaxy III users to the Magnetyze family of products in 2012 and will make them available to iPhone 5 users during Q2. “Our Magnetyze line of protective smartphone cases and chargers are the ideal solution for consumers who appreciate the power of magnetic and the convenience of being able to ‘grab and go.’”
Magnetyze by BuQu Tech also eliminates the need for new charging accessories with every smartphone upgrade. When it is time to upgrade to a new smartphone, only the Magnetyze protective case needs to be replaced. The desk stand, car charger, wall charger, magnetic charging cable and other Magnetyze-branded accessories will continue to work with any available Magnetyze smartphone case – Android or iPhone.
