A simple cube that would have two velcro straps on one side. On the end would be a rubber cover covering your usb ports for charging. Next to the usb cover would also be a small velcro strap to secure your usb cables to prevent being pulled around. This will protect the usb ports from wearing out over time. Would also have a rubber mat on the bottom to prevent slipping when placed on a surface. Device should have led charging lights to alert the user when charging and fully charged/low battery when used to charge devices.

Great for hiking, camping, commuting, traveling, or military. Its rugged design will allow for charge on the go without worries of device damage.

Trek Support Redesign Refine Phase

As referenced in this blog post, we are redesigning the Trek Support due to demand from a key retailer for its key features. For reference, the problem and design brief are below. Let’s see what you guys come up with!

Problem:
Ever been on vacation, a business trip, or any type of travel and experienced the frustration of organizing multiple adapters and tangled cables for your devices? Many of us are traveling with a variety of devices these days, and it can really be a pain to keep mobile devices charged and organized. Often times you arrive at your hotel room or destination and have to find multiple outlets just to conveniently charge all your things. Charging ports are becoming more common on flights, but juggling devices in tight spaces can be a flight of fancy. When an outlet is not at hand, you’re not doing any charging.

Phase Design Brief:
Let’s work together to come up with a portable charging station that:
• Makes it easy to organize and transport your cables and portable devices in one handy product
• Works with a variety of USB-compatible mobile devices (phones, cameras, tablets that charge via USB)
• Fits iPads, iPhones, iPods (all iOS devices), and other devices such as Blackberry, point-and-shoot digicams, other tablets
• Has an integrated rechargeable battery for charging when not near an outlet
• Is convenient to transport: easy to slip into a bag or luggage; easy to hand-carry or carry on body
• Has an ‘upscale’ aesthetic and suitable materials to protect devices and stand up to the rigors of modern travel
• Is TSA-compliant
