ReTrak high speed HDMI 1.4 retractable cables

Building on from their success in the United States and Canada, Emerge Technologies is bringing their ReTrak brand of high speed HDMI Cables to the UK.

Emerge will initially bring 70 of their top retractable accessories products to the UK market, which cover the main categories of mobile and smartphone, iPod and MP3, tablet, eBook reader, notebook and netbook, audio and gaming. The entire ReTrak line-up features retractable cables, which offers convenience and ultra portability. Also, the ‘ThinPlug’ is now integrated into the design of all ReTrak’s electrical wall and combination products and is the world’s smallest folding plug.

Joining ReTrak’s existing lineup is the company’s newest retractable ‘Standard’ HDMI Cable for HDTV, Blu-ray, PS3 and Xbox; the ‘Mini’ HDMI Cable  for digital cameras, camcorders, and other portable devices; the ‘Micro’ HDMI Cable for mobile phones, tablets, digital cameras, camcorders, notebooks and more.  Also available is the unique Retractable Multi Pack which features the ‘standard’ cable plus adaptors for ‘mini’, ‘micro’ and DVI for virtually any audio/video connection. All HDMI 1.4 Cables are 1080p resolution and speed-rated at 10.2 Gbps. The retractable housing makes the cables extremely compact and lightweight, and ultra portable. The whole cable fits right in the palm of your hand.

ReTrak’s new HDMI Cables are available now, along with the rest of their range, at WHSMITH Travel,, PC World, Currys, Dixons online and in store.


ReTrak launch Worlds Smallest UK folding Plug

Building on from their success in the United States and Canada, Emerge Technologies is bringing their ReTrak brand of all retractable accessories to the UK, launching in June.

The entire 70 product ReTrak range comes with retractable cables and Emerge have found a solution to the bulky UK plug –  the world’s smallest folding plug named the “ThinPlug”.

Products with integrated ThinPlug design will include a universal Laptop and Netbook charger and 4 and 5-in-1 products. These will offer wall, car and sync in one compact unit, such as the iPod and iPad combo charge unit.

To me, these sound excellent – often the most bulky part of any “gadget” these days is the UK plug on the end of the charger!

ReTrak products start at £9.99 for a set of retractable headphones up to £89.99 for a 90 watt retractable notebook charger which fits 7,000 different notebooks.
