Developing new products is being challenged by the rapid change in technology. A good example of this is the introduction of USB C connectors and smart charging into recharging devices and data transfer. In addition, there is the need to provide mobile connectivity in airports, shopping centres, waiting rooms, cafes and numerous other public spaces. Design Edge has been involved with a new cartridge type charger outlet that can be used in a wide variety of our client’s products.
