CRADLEPOINT, TEKKEON PROVIDE SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE USERS: New myPower ALL MP3450i Battery Pack Provides up to 12 hours of Runtime for CradlePoint Routers

Boise, Idaho—February 06, 2009—CradlePoint Technology and Tekkeon, Inc. recently endorsed a cooperative solution bringing together key products to meet the demand of mobile users. Tekkeon’s new myPower ALL MP3450i Battery Pack combined with any of several 3G routers manufactured by CradlePoint, can provide users up to 12 hours of runtime when no power outlet is available.

CradlePoint manufactures mobile router products that convert cellular/3G/4G broadband signals into a secure WiFi network that can be easily accessed by millions of WiFi-enabled devices. Tekkeon manufactures battery solutions for portable power needs enabling flexibility and extended operation of phones, laptops, portable media players, and many other devices.

"We’re excited about this solution and what it means to our customers," stated Jack Alton, VP Sales – North America. "The new Tekkeon battery adds value to CradlePoint products, opens new markets and new opportunities for our routing solutions."

By combining the new, compact Tekkeon battery and a CradlePoint router, users can power a secure WiFi hotspot for 8, 10 even 12 hours. The CradlePoint PHS300 Personal WiFi Hotspot operates for approximately 2 – 3 hours on its standard Li-Ion battery. Using the myPower ALL MP3450i Battery Pack extends the PHS300 use time by four to eight times.

"Both of our companies have had numerous requests for this type of solution," said Jerry Yang, CEO Tekkeon, Inc. "We’re pleased with the positive feedback and the added value Tekkeon products are providing to CradlePoint routers."

The demand for more powerful mobile solutions is on the rise. Many industries require access to the Internet in remote areas or while on the move. Temporary and remote offices, service crews, emergency response teams, and mobile workers that don’t have available power outlets now have the ability to establish a secure WiFi network, connect multiple WiFi-enabled devices and operate for a full work-day, or longer.

The Tekkeon myPower ALL MP3450i Battery Pack is available now for $199.95 MSRP at retailers and online at www.tekkeon.com. CradlePoint routers are available at prices ranging from $99 to 249.99 MSRP at many retailers and online at www.cradlepoint.com.
