Global Consumer Technology Pioneer ON3 “Dares to Be Different” with Introduction of the PowerCliq®, the World’s First-Ever, Fully-Integrated Bluetooth® 4.0 Headset and iPhone Charging Case

Revolutionary Product Design Provides Elegant Protection to iPhone 6 Users, While Simultaneously Charging the Phone and Built-In, Hands-Free Bluetooth Headset; On-The-Go Consumers and Sales Professionals Can Pre-Order the PowerCliq on Indiegogo Beginning April 28

LOS ANGELES--()--ON3, Inc., a global consumer technology accessories company specializing in the creation of innovative, complementary products for today’s generation of advanced smartphones, today unveiled the PowerCliq®, the world’s first-ever, all-in-one protective smartphone charging chase with an integrated Bluetooth® 4.0 headset. The revolutionary new product, which features an ergonomically-designed Bluetooth headset stored inside an impact-resistant smartphone case, allows an on-the-go user to simultaneously charge his smartphone and headset when they are not in use via the case’s powerful built-in, super-thin battery.

“Given consumers’ ever-present need for hands-free mobility while out and about or traveling on business, we set out to create the ultimate charging smartphone case that solves the two most common frustrations with mobile devices: dead batteries and lost equipment”

Consumers can pre-order the PowerCliq, initially available for iPhone 6 owners, through Indiegogo beginning April 28. With a goal of raising $50,000 in contributions, ON3 will use the Indiegogo funds to finance the machining and tooling processes required for fabrication of the iPhone 6-compatible product. Later this year, the company will expand the PowerCliq product line with cases for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 Plus. All PowerCliq-branded smartphone charging cases will be sold and marketed using the powerful tagline, “Dare To Be…,” which alludes to the product’s innovative design and the always-on communication scenarios it makes possible for users.

ON3 specifically designed the PowerCliq to meet the wide-ranging mobile communication demands of today’s always-traveling business professionals, such as sales representatives, business development managers, and senior executives, who rely on their smartphones and Bluetooth headsets to stay in constant contact with clients, team members, partners, vendors, and other important audiences when on the road. The product is also an ideal solution for other on-the-go consumers, such as stay-at-home parents, who depend on their smartphones to manage their hectic lives, and maintain uninterrupted communication with spouses, children, friends, and family members.

“Given consumers’ ever-present need for hands-free mobility while out and about or traveling on business, we set out to create the ultimate charging smartphone case that solves the two most common frustrations with mobile devices: dead batteries and lost equipment,” said Byron Hu, COO of ON3. “Instead of having to wear a Bluetooth headset around town because of no reliable place to keep it, the PowerCliq allows a user to store and charge it at the same time, with the added benefits of protecting and powering his iPhone 6 as well. With the PowerCliq, a consumer will never be stranded with a dead smartphone phone or headset ever again.”

The PowerCliq: Key Features

First available in black, the PowerCliq offers the following features:

  • An impact-resistant case with a scratch-resistant surface, an LED power indicator, super-thin lithium ion battery, and a secure frame — all created to provide constant power and comprehensive shock absorption from movement or dropping.
  • An embedded ergonomically-designed, always-ready Bluetooth 4.0 headset with an answer/hang-up button and a magnet-activated trigger to answer calls. The headset fits snugly, yet comfortably, in the ear.
  • A powerful 2700 Mamp battery that charges both the phone and the integrated Bluetooth headset simultaneously. The PowerCliq increases the battery life of a new iPhone 6 by 150%, and powers the headset up to 45 times on a single charge.
  • A patent-pending Smart Charge app that allows users to determine and set when the automatic charge activates for the phone and headset to prevent the product from burning out the phone’s battery, as is common with other charging cases on the market. Competitive battery power cases constantly charge the user’s phone, consume its charging cycles very quickly, and ultimately reduce the battery capacity of the user’s phone.

Pricing and Availability

The PowerCliq is available for pre-order at a discounted rate through Indiegogo (http://bit.ly/1bzIlcm) beginning April 28. Consumers can get one of the first PowerCliqs off the assembly line for just $78, a 61% discount off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $199.
