JADOO POWER NAMED CES INNOVATIONS 2007
DESIGN AND ENGINEERING AWARD HONOREE
New York, NY, November 17, 2006 — The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) today announced Jadoo Power (Jadoo) as an International CES Innovations 2007 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the Jadoo XRT fuel cell system at the International CES New York Press Preview. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the trade press to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products.
Jadoo is the leading supplier of fuel cell systems to the portable power market. The CES Innovations product, the Jadoo XRT, provides an extended runtime option for Jadoo’s line of N-Gen fuel-cell power units. These fuel cells are uniquely suited for providing alternative power support for a variety of applications when the grid is either unavailable or unreliable. Applications include portable radio and laptop battery recharging, powering law enforcement surveillance installations, as well as providing back-up power for critical communications devices like satellite phones and modems. The XRT provides 100 W, 110VAC / 12VDC power with over 2200 W-hrs of runtime.
“We thank CEA and the Innovations judges for honoring Jadoo with this award,” said Jack Peterson, VP Sales and Marketing, Jadoo Power. “We believe the design of the Jadoo XRT clearly is the result of our continual focus on delivering high-quality, user-friendly fuel cell solutions that meet the power needs of our customers across all industries.”
As a widely renowned consumer technology awards program that began in 1989, the prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards recognize achievements in product design and engineering. It is sponsored by CEA, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), the voice of industrial design, committed to advancing the profession through education, information, community and advocacy.
Jadoo’s XRT will be displayed at the 2007 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
