The USB housing is manufactured using a tough nylon material that is glass fiber reinforced so it can be used in harsh environments including: Public Transport, Emergency Service Vehicles and Marine applications.

Tim Cosgrove of Co-Star commented;

” One of the benefits of using public transport is that it enables people to use the travelling time productively using their mobile devices so this really is a USP for Transport companies and it is crucial that they offer accessible charging facilities otherwise people will simply choose another operator that does have charging facilities. We have developed the housing using tough re-inforced materials that offers versatile installation options into all different types of public transport vehicles”.
