New Products at LAVA

November was a busy month for LAVA as we released multiple new products. Leading the release schedule was the M8 nP2UE – a custom enclosure for the Lenovo Tab M8 HD tablet. It features an integrated SimulCharge adapter (simultaneous charging and data), that includes Power over Ethernet (PoE), Ethernet and two USB-A ports for peripherals, such as a scanner and printer.

The M8 nP2UE is a compact device that can be used in a variety of situations. In a restaurant kitchen, it can be used to receive online orders. At a warehouse or other business, it could be used as a staff time clock. There are even digital signage and contact tracing applications for the enclosure. However, the sky is truly the limit for this compact, integrated enclosure and electronics package – that brings together the best of LAVA’s electrical and mechanical abilities.

In addition to the M8 nP2UE, LAVA unveiled a special project from our u series line of adapters: the uSynC-1U MINI and uSTS-1U MINI. The same size as the Charge-Plus USB-C adapter, these small SimulCharge adapters come with one USB-A port for a peripheral and feature Continuously Active Battery Modulation (CABM).

CABM is a plug-and-play Battery Modulation technology that protects the mobile device and its battery from bloating, which can cause severe damage. It monitors the mobile device as it is charging and when the process slows to a trickle charge, it disconnects power, as it indicates the mobile device is near a full charge. The adapter then allows the mobile device to discharge over a preset number of hours before reinitiating the charging process. CABM and SimulCharge work together to ensure your mobile device can remained plugged in 24/7.
