ZipKord Solutions, a leading innovator of technology products and accessories, has launched a line of top-quality, solution-based gadgets and inventions with Popular Mechanics called the “Tools for Those Who Tinker” collection. This line, which includes auto, home and technology products, is rooted in technological innovation, problem-solving and the advancements of sustainable products.

The line’s patented flagship product, the Battery ReCharger- disposable battery charger, will debut on QVC February 25th as ZipKord and Popular Mechanics look to expand the retail presence of the Popular Mechanics product lineup. The Battery ReCharger eliminates the high replacement cost and unnecessary waste of disposable batteries. The collection’s Battery Converters, which allow for the use of more-common AA batteries in place of C and D sizes, will also be featured on the broadcast.

Popular Mechanics is committed to launching new products quarterly. By building partnerships with inventors and product-development companies worldwide, ZipKord and Popular Mechanics will deliver innovative solutions for everyday life.

Popular Mechanics evaluates thousands of products each year at our Test Zone, and only after thorough mechanical and real-world testing do we recommend gear to our 20 million monthly readers and members. These new tools are an extension of that commitment to excellence and help solve everyday hassles—from saving money on household batteries to providing a clutter-free hub that charges multiple devices,” said Louis Mazzante, test director at Popular Mechanics.

The Popular Mechanics product collection can be found on Amazon here as well as and, after the broadcast. In addition to the ReCharge and Battery Converters, the “Tools for Those Who Tinker” collection includes a 4-port USB Charging Hub, Screen Shine Kit, Road Trip 4-Port USB Car Charger, a Cup Holder Phone Mount, as well as a Tech Travel Bag with Power Strip.
