One of the things pretty much everyone hates about electronic devices in general and certain portable gadgets in particular are the power adapters
, which tend to come in all shapes and sizes, using either standardized or proprietary connectors. There are quite a few companies out there actively lobbying the unification of power charger standards, and that's also the case with Green Plug, which is advertising its own solution of this type.
The Greentalk protocol and Greenwire interface developed by Green Plug are aimed at reducing the number of incompatible adapters that are discarded by users every single day, as well as actually cutting down the amount of power
employed by these adapters while not in use. The Greentalk digital protocol enables devices to collaborate with power supplies to dynamically monitor, control and optimize power delivery for changing conditions. Highly efficient, stylish DC power hubs enabled with Green Plug’s GPP chip are able to simultaneously power multiple devices, each with its own specific voltage and power requirements.
And now, Green Plug has announced the fact that PURE, a fairly-well known manufacturers of digital radios, has entered into an agreement to enable its radios to accept power from Green Plug's smart power adapters.
“PURE has led the way in environmentally friendly electronics products with its EcoPlus initiative. We believe that as many people now choose our radios for their Eco-friendly technologies as for their stylish design or advanced features. We are delighted to be part of bringing Green Plug’s innovative green power management
technologies to PURE users and to further minimize the impact of our products on the environment,” said Paul Smith, GM, PURE.
“We are thrilled with PURE’s decision to make its products capable of accepting power from universal and reusable power adapters and to offer a smart power adapter accessory,” said Frank Paniagua, Jr., CEO of Green Plug. “For quite a while, consumers have urged manufacturers to provide this capability, but many have been reluctant to do so until others were also providing the smart power interface. With the announcement from PURE and others to follow, we anticipate that this common sense solution will soon be available in many popular electronic products.”
There's no word just yet whether this move will increase the price points of PURE devices, but it's a good thing to see that more and more technology manufacturers are starting to seriously consider adopting such power-saving, green solutions.
