True Blue Power, a leading provider of certified USB power products for the aerospace industry, has announced the company’s newest ultra-fast charger, the TA360 Series USB-PD Charging Port. Designed to power new and future electronic devices, the high-speed charging ports use USB Power Delivery (PD) technology to provide 60 watts of power per port.
“True Blue Power is at the forefront of USB product development. Adding this advanced USB-PD technology to our product line ensures pilots, passengers and crew have access to cutting-edge, in-flight USB power now and well into the future,” said Erik Ritzman, True Blue Power director. “The TA360 series future-proofs aircraft for years to come.”
USB-PD is the fastest charging technology available. It provides four times more power than traditional USB-A and USB-C chargers. USB-PD charging ports offer intelligent voltage output, allowing each specific device to receive the maximum level of power possible. While PD-compatible electronics benefit most from this new technology, the TA360 Series also supports traditional USB-A and USB-C devices.
The latest PD-compatible smartphones, tablets, electronic flight bags (EFB) and laptop computers benefit from the TA360 Series’ variable power output. The ultra-fast charger delivers five to 20 volts at three amps, providing up to 60 watts of power per PD port and is available in three primary configurations.
- Single; USB-C PD; 60 Watts; three amps per port; lighted and non-lighted
- Dual; USB-C PD; 120 Watts; three amps per port; lighted and non-lighted
- Dual; USB-C PD / USB-A; 75 Watts; three amps per port; lighted and non-lighted
The TSO-certified TA360 Series offers easy in-seat, cabin, cockpit and galley installation, and protects itself and the electronic device from short circuit, power surges, overload and over temperature. True Blue Power USB-PD chargers are a drop-in replacement for the company’s TA102 and TA202 Series chargers. All True Blue Power USB Charging Ports offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The TA360 Series USB-PD Charging Port will be on display in booth C8717 throughout the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Convention and Exhibition at the Las Vegas Convention Center Oct. 22 to 24.
