2 Office Antimicrobial Backpack
The Targus 2 Antimicrobial backpack is designed to transport everything from your office desk to your home desk and back. It’s made tough to keep your electronics safe and has the added bonus of having an antimicrobial finish to neutralize bacteria.
It’s got a slim profile and a clamshell side opening for easy accessibility to all your items. There’s space for a full size keyboard, small monitor, headphones, and even a couple of tablets. A dedicated compartment with sling technology keeps your laptop from bottoming out.
If you like modular things, you’ll be happy with the integrated MOLLE system. The two pouches on the front are detachable, and have a good amount of space for cables, laptop chargers and other accessories. And you can strap your own existing MOLLE accessories to the bag as well.
The antimicrobial coat (silver ion) is applied to the bag materials in the dying and finishing process, making it permanent for the life of the bag. It’s an inorganic mineral that’s used for disinfection and sterilization without toxicity or side effects. Interestingly, doesn’t interfere with the DWR waterproofing finish either.
Finally, the shoulder straps have hidden pockets where you can store your mask or hand sanitizer, making it a nice convenience so you don’t have to make a pitstop to take off your bag.
UV-C LED Disinfection Light
The UV-C LED Disinfection Light is a CES 2021 award winning product that sits on a desk and runs a 5 minute disinfection cycle every hour. It breaks down the DNA of any microorganism especially targeting the keyboard and mouse. The motion sensor will scan the area before starting a UV-C light cycle and as a safety precaution, not start if it senses motion. A shutoff will also be triggered if motion is detected during a running cycle. There should be no risk of accidental exposure.
There is an active disinfection area of 10” front to back and about 26” left to right.
Tablet Cradle Workstation
It looks like a hub and acts like a dock for your tablet. But the true power is how this cradle lets you extend the tablet’s use to almost a desktop-like environment using the Samsung DeX platform. If you consider how fast mobile technology is advancing, there may come a point when there aren’t as many laptops because tablets and phones are just as powerful.
To that end, Targus has worked together with Samsung to create this Tablet Cradle Workstation for Samsung Tab Active3 users. The cradle’s got ports like USB-A, SD card reader, ethernet, HDMI and has a secure locking function. The modular docking capability allows for future upgrades so you don’t have to replace everything, thus saving money.
Universal USB-C Phone Dock
Much like the Tablet Cradle, this dock accepts smartphones with a USB-C port to offer a desktop-like experience. It’s got ports like USB-A, SD card reader, ethernet, and HDMI.
