Tech Data expands its accessories range with Kanex mobile connectivity solutions

August 7, 2014

Basingstoke, 07 August 2014 – Tech Data UK has signed a distribution agreement with Kanex, a leading supplier of innovative mobile connectivity and power solutions for Apple and other mobile vendor technologies. With immediate effect, the company’s comprehensive range of adapters, cables, accessories and power solutions are available from Tech Data to UK retailers, webstores and resellers.

A well-established brand among Apple enthusiasts, Kanex has a reputation for offering well-designed, real-life solutions with quality, function and craftsmanship. The company is a committed player in consumer electronics and designs and develops innovative, productivity-enhancing solutions that consumers can use at home, on the go, at school, in the car and at work.

Kanex recently announced the launch of two new Thunderbolt adapters – a Thunderbolt-to-eSATA plus USB 3.0, and a Thunderbolt-to-Gigabit Ethernet plus USB 3.0. Another recent addition is the GoPower Pack™, which features two universal USB ports and will deliver multiple charges to Apple iPhones and other smartphones. It comes with a slide-out stand that makes it easy to use the phone while charging it up. Smart power management detects the voltage of each device to provide appropriate power output while high-efficiency circuitry decreases power waste.

Simon Hughes, Category Manager for Components at Tech Data, said: “Kanex is a really valuable addition to our Apple and accessories range. They are always innovating and responding to customer demand – with products like the new Thunderbolt adapters for example, Kanex is helping MacBook Air users bridge the gap between old and new technologies and increase their connectivity options.”

Darren Tobin, International Sales Director for Kanex, stated: “This agreement with Tech Data will give Kanex extended reach into the UK market and we’ll be working with the distributor to maximise availability and opportunities for retailers and webstores with Kanex solutions.”
