Yves Behar’s San Francisco studio Fuseproject has developed an octagonal transportable charger that can accommodate a laptop, a smartphone and a tablet at the exact same time (+ slideshow).
Named Zolt, the battery pack has three USB ports and was designed with Avogy – a Silicon Valley-primarily based technological innovation organization focused on compact and productive energy sources.
Fuseproject designed each the object and its identity, like the identify, graphics and packaging.
By offsetting the octagonal outer shell with the eight-sided inner part, venting holes are created at the finish to keep the battery amazing. The practically cylindrical shape also allows users to wrap cords around the pack for straightforward carrying during travel.

“Offered the skill of the technologists developing this new brand, we wished to emphasis the brand attributes all around this notion of expertise, boldness and innovation,” explained Behar. “The name, Zolt, sounds just that – electric, charged, buzzy.”
The brushed casing is available in dark grey, dark purple and vivid red.
“We picked a colour palette that would exemplify this as well, with bold and luminous colours like electric orange, ultraviolet and graphite,” Behar added.
The pack measures 3.six inches prolonged (93 millimetres) with a one.3-inch diameter (34 millimetres) and weighs three.5 ounces (99 grams).
Zolt’s slim profile is created to permit for use in tight spaces like plane or auto seats, compared to a typical rectangular battery pack.
The charger’s electrical prongs fold into 1 finish, and the cylinder within the octagon pivots 90 degrees so devices can be plugged in whilst the Zolt pact is charging in an outlet.
Behar’s studio also not too long ago developed a view for Movado and an expanded electronic lock system for August.
