BodyGuardz

Lehi—BodyGuardz, leader in mobile device protection was granted U.S. Pat. No. 9,588,547 for its “Mobile Device Screen Protector Installation System.” Also known as Express Align, this innovative “do-it yourself” installation technology, simplifies the placement of glass screen protectors.

“As the first company to bring glass screen protectors to the US market, we are constantly driven by our desire to invent and deliver complex solutions in the simplest form possible,” said Kirk Feller, BGZ brands’ president and CEO. “This is why we invented Express Align, to alleviate the stress and anxiety that occurs when installing glass, by empowering our customers with an exclusive solution to quickly and easily protect their personal devices.”

Express Align is a proprietary installation solution that matches its paired mobile device’s exact dimensions. Simply placing the tray over a mobile phone or tablet results in a perfectly aligned screen protector. In three basic steps, literally anyone can accurately install the glass every time, regardless of experience.

As a result of this newly awarded patent, Express Align is the exclusive intellectual property of BodyGuardz. It is a key feature within the company’s growing screen protector family for popular mobile devices, which includes iPhone, iPad and select Samsung devices.

St. George—weBoost®, the global leader in cell signal boosters, today announced the launch of the Drive 4G-X RV, the brand’s most powerful and best performing in-vehicle cell phone signal booster, providing up to 32X stronger cell signal. RV owners will now be able to experience exceptional call quality, faster data uploads and downloads, and fewer lost connections and dead zones when on the road or off.

The Drive 4G-X RV increases the reach of cellular signals by a maximum 50 decibels. Whether you are on a family camping trip, are running your business from the road or are chasing a storm, the Drive 4G-X RV makes the difference in reliable communication and internet access in remote areas.

“Just like people expect good cell coverage at the house, they expect it in their ‘home on the road.’ Part of the RV experience is not sacrificing the luxuries, comforts and necessities of home,” said Bruce Lancaster, Wilson Electronics’ CEO. “Because it provides access to family, friends, work and all of the media we now associate with modern technology’s access to 4G cellular signal, every RV enthusiast should consider packing the Drive 4G-X RV.”

Compared to its RV predecessors, the new booster is smaller, thus taking up less of the valuable space in the RV. Setup is easier with an omnidirectional antenna, meaning the user does not need to determine the direction of the cell tower. The comprehensive Drive 4G-X RV kit includes all of the components needed for a do-it-yourself, one-time installation. This includes:

• One Drive 4G-X Unit
• One 4G omni antenna
• One 4G desktop antenna
• AC and hardwire / DC wall power supplies
• 20-foot, RG-6 cable with connectors preinstalled
• Cable entry cover
• Cable management mounts and zip ties

Accommodating up to four users across all carriers simultaneously, including Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile, the booster enhances talk, text and high-speed 4G LTE, as well as 3G network signals.

How it Works: The external antenna reaches out to access cellular signal and delivers it to the booster. The booster amplifies the signal and serves as the relay between the phone/device and the nearest cell tower. As a result, mobile devices receive stronger signals that are fed through the booster back to the network.

The Drive 4G-X RV is available for purchase now online at store.weboost.com/products/drive-4g-x-rv and through resellers for $499.99 MSRP. All boosters come with a two-year warranty.

InvisibleShield Sapphire Defense Curve

Sapphire Defense Curve’s meticulous design provides a precise, case-friendly fit with unrivaled strength and impact protection that won’t chip, crack or shatter.

Glass Curve preserves the sleek design of your phone while providing exceptional impact and scratch protection combined with smooth, accurate touch sensitivity and high-definition image clarity. Glass Curve also provides consumers the same remarkable edge-to-edge responsiveness of an unprotected screen thanks to its precise design. Its 100 percent clarity rating means high-definition screen protection that’s so clear, consumers won’t even know it’s there.

“We’re excited to introduce our new curved screen protection solutions for the new Galaxy S8 and S8+,” said Brian Stech, president of ZAGG. “Not only is it now possible to protect their remarkable curved screens, but our extensive design, engineering and development processes will ensure the perfect fit with today’s most popular phone cases.
