Targus debuts reimagined product line-up

Targus has debuted its reimagined product line-up at this week’s (virtual) Consumer Electronics Show. 

The company is announcing products that actively protect against bacteria growth with a complete range of antimicrobial products. Included is the 15-17.3-inch 2Office Antimicrobial Backpack, a laptop case that features an antimicrobial infused protective finish on key touchpoints to prevent the growth of microorganisms on the backpack. It costs US$119.99 and is due this spring.

In addition to the backpack, Targus is also releasing several other antimicrobial products including tablet cases, privacy screens, mice, and keyboards to ensure that people can keep their working environment as healthy as possible.

The company is also announcing the $299 UV-C LED Disinfection Light that utilizes UV-C lighting to reduce pathogens on device surfaces inside the active disinfection area. Designed to sit on a desktop, the AC-powered light runs for five minutes, every hour disinfecting the workspace through automatic settings via motion sensors. If any motion is detected within the safety zone or directly outside of the active cleaning area, the UV-C LEDs will be automatically disabled and resume again after five minutes of inactivity. 

The products supporting work from anywhere have been developed with utility in mind, according to Andrew Corkill, vice president of Global Marketing, Targus. The company is releasing updated versions of its docking stations including the DOCK310 and travel dock DOCK423 that will make connecting a laptop to multiple monitors while charging multiple devices simultaneously even easier.

Targus is also launching its first eco tablet case; the VersaVu EcoSmart Case for iPad(8th and 7th generation 10.2-inch and iPad Air 10.5-inch and Pro 10.5-inch inch). Made from recycled materials, it also passes military spec drop testing, features a patented 360 degree rotation for portrait and landscape views, and has a secure magnetic closure. The Versa Vu EcoSmart Case is also due in the spring. Pricing hasn’t been announced.
