Targus (www.targus.com) has announced today two new innovative additions to its suite of cases by incorporating new technologies to enhance the performance, style and protection of the everyday laptop bag. 

The Mobile ViP+ Backpack includes Qi-charging that allows users to carry and charge their Qi-enabled smartphone such as the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, or Samsung Galaxy S9. Engineered to keep your gear connected and protected, the case features an integrated charging holster designed to seamlessly secure the charging smartphone even if the backpack is bumped or dropped. 

The pack also incorporates an RFID-blocking pocket that helps prevent your credit cards from being skimmed remotely. In addition to being packed with technology, the backpack incorporates everything you need from a travel bag, including contoured shoulder straps and an air-mesh back panel for comfort, a trolley strap to secure to rolling luggage, and a tuck-away water bottle holder. The Mobile ViP+ Backpack will be available in April for $199.99.

To help frequent travelers protect their laptops from accidental knocks, bumps and drops, Targus is updating its Corporate Traveler collection. Re-engineered with an advanced SafePort x D3O protection system on the base and sides of the laptop compartment, the shock absorbing polymer material offers the thinnest and most advanced protection against impact. 

D3O materials are made using a combination of advanced polymer chemistry and cutting-edge design that absorbs and dissipates energy during an impact. SafePort x D3O can be found in the Corporate Traveler Backpack and 14″ and 15.6″ Corporate Traveler Briefcases along with Targus’ patented checkpoint-friendly solution that allows users to pass through airport security without removing their laptop. 

Also in the collection is a 15.6″ Corporate Traveler 4-Wheeled Roller. Durable and sleek, the roller features separate compartments for overnight and tech gear. The laptop section incorporates a handled sleeve and waterproof compartment. The Corporate Traveler collection will begin rolling out later this month with prices starting at $104.99.
