The Nectar Mobile Power System is a compact, lightweight and highly portable device that powers and charges virtually any of the billions of consumer electronic devices – smart phones, tablets, mp3 players, eReaders, Bluetooth headsets, digital cameras, etc.– that comply with the USB power standard. This revolutionary product has the capacity to keep consumer electronic devices humming for 2+ weeks by inserting a single Nectar Pod power cartridge into the mobile power system. Using Nectar, consumers get 10 times the run-time versus traditional chargers and will never again worry about running out of power. They will be secure in knowing that their next charge is readily available and will no longer need to hunt for, nor rely upon traditional wall outlets to charge their devices. The pods are convenient and easy-to-use. Once a pod has been depleted, the user simply attaches a new pod, and instantly has another 2+ weeks of power.
Both the Nectar Mobile Power System and Nectar Pods cartridges have been approved for carry-on and use aboard regular commercial aircraft by the UN International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and U.S. Department of Transportation. Additionally, Nectar significantly reduces the need for consumers to travel with cables and power adapters and offers a truly friendly solution to the myriad of power challenges faced by today’s consumer.
