The idea that Quick-E brings to CES 2020 is to sell preloaded powerbanks at convenience stores, cafes and supermarkets for low prices, under 3 euros, and allow the equipment to be returned to precedence after the charge is exhausted and recharged for reuse.
Quick-E has already started to be sold in the UK and comes wrapped in a postal envelope, which after use the battery can be unfolded and placed directly in the post office, with postage paid. The company receives the battery and recharges it, putting it back on the market, a cycle that can be repeated up to 500 times.
The battery is light and thin and has the plug for connecting to Android and iOS smartphones, or tablet and laptop. That's why it's sold in three versions, Quick-E Lightning for iPhones, Quick-E Type-C for Android, and Quick-E Book for Laptops and Tablets.
Stefan Paris Michael, one of the company's founders, told SAPO TEK that he is at CES 2020 looking for partnerships to expand the business to the United States, but is also considering expanding to other European countries through partnerships. One of the main problems may be the cost of postage, and the difference between the various postal systems in Europe.
