Griffin International and WildCharge Introduce TouchCharge® Wireless Charging System

Cut the Cord: Introducing a wireless kit that will give consumers the unique ability to recharge wireless controllers for gaming consoles.

Minneapolis, MN, November 12, 2008 --( Twin Cities based Griffin International Companies, one of the country’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of consumer goods, announced today that it is teaming with WildCharge, the innovator in the field of wire-free power technology, in a national retail product launch in time for the 2008 holiday season.

Together the companies are introducing TouchCharge (TM), a wireless kit that will give consumers the unique ability to recharge wireless controllers for their Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game systems. This kit includes two rechargeable batteries/adaptors for controllers of the specific gaming platform and a universal charging pad. TouchCharge (TM) will retail this holiday season at select retail stores including Best Buy, Toys R Us and GameStop starting at the suggested retail price of $49.99.

Bob Griffin, President and CEO of Griffin International stated, “We are very excited to introduce TouchCharge (TM) to the public for the first time through major retailers. Although WildCharge has offered the wireless charging pads online for other hand-held devices, it’s the first time that consumers will be able to find this technology for their game systems at a Best Buy or a Toys R Us.

Mike Reynolds of WildCharge said their company is encouraged that their foray into the retail market will be a success with this product. “The wireless charge has been very well received among tech-savvy consumers. It’s very easy to use and the ability to keep your game controllers charged is a truly versatile enhancement to this system.”
