NXT-ID Announces Rechargeable Battery for its Wocket™ Smart Wallet

Aug 11, 2014
Assuming 5 payments a day, Wocket™ will not require recharging for over a year

SHELTON, Conn., August 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCBB: NXTD) (OTCQB:NXTD), a biometric authentication company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, announced today that its Wocket™ Smart Wallet will now contain a rechargeable battery with the calculated time between charges for the average user at over a year.

"We wanted to achieve something truly unique for our customers; something never achieved before," states David Tunnell, CTO of NXT-ID, Inc.  "We developed Wocket™ with extremely efficient power management so that users never have to worry about being without their wallet. Since Wocket™ does not depend on any other device such as a cell phone; users can be assured they have a smart wallet that always works."

Responding to customer feedback, NXT-ID announced that it will include a rechargeable battery in its innovative Wocket™ Smart Wallet.  Assuming 5 payments a day, Wocket™ will not require a recharge for over a year.  The low-power performance of Wocket™ not only achieves a battery life 100x greater than that of other mobile devices, but also moves NXT-ID one step closer to achieving its ultimate goal of battery-less wearables.

"We listened to our customers' desire for a rechargeable battery and responded with a solution that does not require a recharge for more than a year for average use," says Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, Inc.  "Unlike any other mobile or wearable device, users will have literally months of advance warning to charge their Wocket™.  For a feature rich wearable, with a touch screen, gesture control, multifactor authentication including biometrics, Bluetooth Low Energy, and inductive and magnetic features, this is quite an achievement."
