The USB data security adapter, designed in Monrovia to block data transferring capabilities on mobile devices when connected to a USB port, helps protect users against identity theft and malware.
McCafferty and Vice President of Sales Tony Manning sat down with AL.com on Thursday to discuss the Juice Jack Defender and ChargeDefense, which has about 25,000 gadgets in production right now.
Q. Can you tell me a little history about ChargeDefense?
McCafferty – The company was established at the beginning of this year. We actually started working on the concept of the Juice Jack Defender back in November of 2013 and started prototyping that around that time. We had a couple of failures and then got things cooking here. Really, the final product we have now was completed in the May time frame. The company supports all mobile charging devices, so we have chargers, we have the Juice Jack Defender of course, we have solar power chargers, we have cables. It’s the full gamut of mobile charging solutions, but our primary product that we’re known for is the Juice Jack Defender.
