Powertraveller have joined forces with South African registered team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung. The portable power brand signed up as the official power partner to the team prior to their departure to Le Tour de France in July this year.
Powertraveller are a leading manufacturer of high end power solutions & are a prominent power partner to adventure sports and events worldwide. The brand is represented in sub Saharan Africa by Johannesburg based distributor, Wintec Solutions.
A seamless logistics operation is a key factor in team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung’s success, therefore access to quality, reliable portable power solutions was necessary. Team Principle Douglas Ryder and Wintec Director Rene Winter agree that the Powertraveller range of products fit well into the team ethos.
“We needed a power solution that was more than reliable, was tough & durable as well as super mobile, Powertraveller offers several solar and power bank based products that each focus on different power needs in different situations allowing us to provide power on the go for the whole team. Our team doctors, media, managers and mechanics to name a few, needed to be kept on line and operational at all times.“
The new partnership goes beyond logistical merits. A percentage of all sales of Powertraveller‘s Explorer 2 charger, an aluminium, waterproof, practically indestructible unit will go to the Qhubeka charity.
