Innovation is a company value


Innovation involves the pursuit of new ideas and methods. It is a relentless pursuit of coming up with solutions to problems. At VoltNow, innovation is not a task left to a department or individual. Rather, it is a core value and the fuel that keeps us going. Besides, innovating is just plain fun.

Innovation can manifest itself in many ways both bold and subtle. For instance, with the rise of wireless charging, we felt the best location for a wireless charging pad was at the bedside so we developed a wireless charging alarm clock and bluetooth speaker. No more fumbling for cords in the dark. Micro-USB cords are especially annoying since they can only be inserted in one direction. We carefully studied the various wireless charging specifications and made a commitment to go with the 'Qi' standard. We also determined that some users may want to charge multiple devices so we made sure to incorporate an additional USB output. Not only that, we made sure it was a fast charging 2 Amp output.

Innovation can also be much more subtle. For instance, we sat down to talk about frustrations with lightning cables and set out to develop the perfect cable. Every millimeter was scrutinized and re-designed including:

  • Flat tangle free cable
  • Nylon wrapped cable jacket for ultimate strength
  • Reinforced strain relief to avoid fraying at connector end
  • Aluminum connectors for durability and to avoid cracking
  • Reversible USB
  • 24 gauge cable is thicker than most cheaper cables and provides faster charging and data transfer
  • Apple MFi certification (not necessarily an innovation but a must for creating the ultimate lightning cable)

So even with a seemingly simple lightning cable, every millimeter was thought through and designed.

Another example is with our Power Wallet. The frustration we set out to solve was the constant battery anxiety when on the go. We developed a super slim battery bank that incorporated a charging cable. The cable itself has a Micro-USB connector for Android phones and e-readers. But we didn't ignore Apple users and incorporated a Lightning adapter that conveniently stores inside the batter. The wallet itself is designed to allow you to charge your phone or recharge the battery without removing the battery. A high grade 4,000 mAh Lithium polymer battery offers years of worry-free charging.

At VoltNow, constant innovation is in our DNA. We only hire people that embody this innovative spirit and are committed to bringing you products that continue to exceed expectations.
