Supernova Bluetooth speaker doubles as a lantern light source; GaN-powered Alpha65’s collectible character design offers quick power safely.
LOS ANGELES – Feb. 28, 2023 – GravaStar, creators of one-of-a-kind sci-fi-inspired hi-fi audio products, today announced the launch of the Supernova Bluetooth speaker and Alpha65 charger. Supernova features an industrial design along with the signature tripod leg design that has become symbolic of GravaStar’s unique, collectible art form. Equipped with a portable handle, Supernova can instantly switch to camping mode and mimic a lantern, used for music and ambient outdoor lighting, anywhere. With a mecha robot-inspired design, Alpha65 transforms the charging of everyday devices, offering safe, effective, and quickest possible charging powered by GaN technology.
Supernova: Powerful Sound and Light, Anywhere
Supernova combines nostalgia with hyper-modern sci-fi influence while incorporating a classic lantern design. With a hard-core metallic body made from zinc alloy, Supernova’s eye-catching design also absorbs shocks and drops. It features three
different light modes: vivid dynamic mode, single light mode (with eight different colors available), and camping light mode, intended to mimic the gentle flickering of a campfire, offering a luminous visual experience paired with enveloping audio.
With 25 watts of power and 90db, Supernova’s acoustics deliver deep bass, clear mids, and crisp highs through its 3” full-range speaker and 0.5” high-frequency tweeter. Users can expect to feel the pulsating sound both in a small room and outside in the open air. For times when an elevated stereo sound is needed, two speakers can be combined for an explosive, immersive experience.
Supernova’s 2.2-lb weight, collapsible legs, and handle make it a unique travel accessory, with its lantern physique bringing a fun element to any camping excursion, hanging in a tent, or guiding the way through hiking trails. With a usage time of seven hours and a long Bluetooth connection distance of 20 meters, Supernova is prepared to handle both long working hours and exciting outdoor adventures.
“GravaStar wants to bring an explosive sound experience to every aspect of life,” said Yong Huang, GravaStar founder, and industrial designer. “Supernova is built to be taken anywhere: the office, home, or even camping. It lights a path forward while bringing the soundtrack to any adventure.”
Alpha65: GaN Technology for the Quickest, Safest Charging Possible
Alpha65 is reminiscent of robots from classic sci-fi films. With a shape-shifting design and collapsible legs, it transforms depending on its purpose: standing up for tabletop display, and sitting down for charging. Ice blue lights show a real-time power status display, coming to life when charging.
“GravaStar strives to take products that are traditionally ‘boring’ and transform them into nostalgic, collectible items that also incorporate the latest technology available,” said Yong Huang. “Alpha65 safely and quickly powers devices while doubling as a mini mecha robot.”
Featuring three ports (2 USB-C and 1 USB-A) with intelligent detection, Alpha65 offers the fastest-charging possible for any plugged-in device. Equipped with GaN technology, Alpha65 delivers higher outputs with less heat and better efficiency, charging devices faster, with more power, and in less time. A synchronous rectification chip improves the power supply efficiency for multiple devices like smartphones and laptops.
Keeping safety top of mind, the Alpha65 is resistant to heat. While delivering 65W of power safely to devices through GaN technology, Alpha65 uses less energy to convert power and lasts longer over time with protection from overvoltage, overcurrent, short circuits, and overtemperature. Its flame-retardant shell ensures safe charging.
