[Jericho, NY—February 28, 2017] — With mobile device charging solutions growing in high demand at major hotel brands across Asia Pacific, Ming Fai will be showcasing Kube Systems and LinkTech™ branded products at HOTELEX Shanghai 2017. The LinkTech™ Charge Station/Player/Alarm Clock for guestrooms and the Kube 5 (KS) portable charging station for public areas will be on display in Stand E3J01, March 28 to 31, at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC). Both products are compatible with virtually all smartphones and tablets, and each can power up to six mobile devices simultaneously.
HOTELEX is a series of leading hospitality equipment, supplies and fine food trade fairs China, held in the cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu and Guangzhou. HOTELEX Shanghai covers the entire hospitality and catering value chain from Catering Equipment, Tableware, Appliances & Amenities, Textile and Uniform, IT & Security, Fitness & Leisure, to Food and Beverage, Bakery & Ice Cream, Coffee & Tea, Wine & Spirits, and more.
“As the authorized distributor of Kube Systems in the APAC territory, we are eager to spotlight these value-added guest amenities at HOTELEX Shanghai for hoteliers looking to alleviate guests’ anxiety when they lose battery power at the wrong time and realize that they forgot to pack their charging cables,” said Ming Fai Marketing Director Tracy So. “These products feature the most advanced charging technologies available with an intellectualized design, and they are exactly what the projected 117,000 visitors and 4,800 overseas buyers will be looking for at this event.
“Hotels in Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing have widely adopted the LinkTech Charge Station/Player/Alarm Clock and the Kube 5 (KS) portable because they understand how important it is to support guests’ needs to power up no matter where they are on property,” So said. “Business travelers especially are packing multiple intelligent devices; that means having to remember to bring multiple power cords. In the true spirit of hospitality, hotels need to provide charging solutions that power ALL types of mobile devices conveniently… at speeds comparable to wall outlets … and keep the devices charged for a sufficient time. The LinkTech product provides an in-room experience that enables guests to listen to their personal music while powering multiple devices at the same time all within proximity to each other and without a lot of clutter at the bedside. The Kube 5, when strategically placed in high-traffic public areas like the lobby bar or restaurant, keeps guests staying longer and spending more. It also has proven to be a value-added sales tool for meeting planners.”
LINKTECH CLOCK: DESIGNED FOR GUESTROOMS Compatible with all Apple®, Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile devices, LinkTech Clocks are available in black or white and come with or without Qi wireless charging. Each Kube Clock features an Apple Lightning, Apple 30-pin, and Micro-USB flip-out cable, two additional auto-sensing USB ports. LinkTech Clocks are programmed via an Android App. This app is part of the Mobile Room Programmer Kit and offers a GUI touchscreen experience, making it easy for hotel staff to customize each unit. The flip-out charging cables are modular to keep units from becoming obsolete, thereby protecting the owner’s investment when charging standards change.
KUBE 5 (KS) PORTABLE: DESIGNED FOR PUBLIC SPACES The Kube 5 – which comes as a kit of five portable units and one charging tray – is ideal for restaurants, lounges, lobbies and meeting venues. If a guest is running low on phone power, hotel staff simply trades a guest’s credit card or ID for the Kube portable unit and slips it into the appropriate slot in the Charging Tray. Each Kube can be programmed with a variable timeout function to limit user time and avoid power squatting. When Kubes are placed freely upon tables, optional locking points and security cables can be implemented for added security. Kube 5 provides up to nine hours of charge time at speeds comparable to those from wall outlets.
AN ‘ESSENTIAL’ ALTERNATIVE “The APAC hotel market is strong, and we are delighted that our solutions are being so well received, thanks to our partner Ming Fai,” said Dave Weinstein, Kube Systems Vice President. “For the first time at HOTELEX Shanghai 2017, Ming Fai will introduce our newest product, the Kube Essentials multi-device charging station. This latest solution not only charges all mobile devices including laptops, but it’s more affordable than most comparable devices in the market and it’s small enough that it won’t clutter the bedside. Kube Essentials also features accessory expansion capability, the first of which will deploy wireless charging. We hope the market is as excited about this new solution as we are.”
