Targus Pushes Boundaries of What’s Possible with Cases and Accessories
Meet the Mobile ViP+, a backpack engineered to carry and charge your Qi-enabled smartphone. The backpack also includes a ventilated charging pocket; a cable pass-thru to connect exterior pockets to the interior charger; and an RFID-blocking pouch.

CES, Las Vegas, NV – Jan. 8, 2019 – Targus, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, announced today two new innovative additions to its suite of cases by incorporating new technologies to enhance the performance, style and protection of the everyday laptop bag. These products continue to showcase the purposeful innovation that Targus aims to deliver with each new product it designs and produces. The new products will be on display at Targus’ CES booth LVCC, South Hall, Booth #31147.

Stay Charged Wire-Free on the Road

The new Mobile ViP+ Backpack includes Qi-charging that allows users to carry and charge their Qi-enabled smartphone such as the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9. Engineered to keep your gear connected and protected, the case features an integrated charging holster designed to seamlessly secure the charging smartphone even if the backpack is bumped or dropped. The pack also subtly incorporates an RFID-blocking pocket that helps prevent your credit cards from being skimmed remotely. In addition to being packed with technology, the backpack incorporates everything you need from a travel bag, including contoured shoulder straps and an air-mesh back panel for comfort, a trolley strap to secure to rolling luggage and a tuck-away water bottle holder.

The Mobile ViP+ Backpack will be available in April 2019 from €199.99.

Ultimate Protection for Travel

To help frequent travelers protect their laptops from accidental knocks, bumps and drops, Targus is updating its popular Corporate Traveler collection. Re-engineered with an advanced SafePort® x D3O® protection system on the base and sides of the laptop compartment, the shock absorbing polymer material offers the thinnest and most advanced protection against impact. D3O® materials are made using a combination of advanced polymer chemistry and cutting-edge design that absorbs and dissipates energy during an impact, dramatically reducing the amount of force transmitted to the laptop during a drop or fall. SafePort® x D3O® can be found in the Corporate Traveler Backpack and 14” and 15.6” Corporate Traveler Briefcases. These cases also tout ample organisation and durable materials for the most demanding business travelers.

In the collection is a 15.6” Corporate Traveler 4-Wheeled Roller. Durable and sleek, the roller features separate compartments for overnight and tech gear. The laptop section incorporates a handled sleeve that allows you to zip through security or keep your laptop out while you check your bag; and the waterproof compartment holds a toiletry bag designed to make security checkpoints a breeze. With a 3-stage trolley handle and four durable spinner wheels, the case effortlessly moves through airports and up the stairs.

The new Corporate Traveler collection will begin rolling out during 2019, starting from around €100.

“As a company that’s been developing cases for 35 years, we know that our customers want products with purpose,” said Demetrius Romanos, vice president, global design and product management. “For us, this means delivering on performance, style and protection and the launch of these two new products exemplify that. By embedding cutting-edge technologies and addressing real user needs, they’re designed to enable today’s modern worker to confidently achieve all they want to do.”

Alongside these two new collections, Targus is continuing to update and expand its existing ranges. At CES, Targus will showcase new products and designs for its Newport Collection of fashion-first laptop handbags and its Work + Play range of backpacks that allow today’s professionals, with active lifestyles, to move effortlessly from their workday to their fitness activities. Additionally, Targus continues to expand its range of technology accessories with updates to its range of tablet cases, cables, adapters, peripherals and universal power solutions.
